Finished my Classic Lines Cardigan!

I'm done! I'm done! I calculate that my Classic Lines Cardigan is the most stitches I've ever knit for one project--coming in around 76,000 stitches (38 size). Eeep! I'm glad I didn't make that calculation before I started! I squeeked this one in under the 6 month mark, and it fits like a dream, so I'm quite proud.



Angela helped me take some photos. It's very windy outside, so it was… Continue

Gnomes and Fairies!

Here's my current now-active project (once a UFO), the Oregon Socks:





My little friend has been with me for years, and he wanted to help me display my Oregon socks. He became faded a few years ago, so I used paint to touch him up. You can see how grateful he is! These socks are based on Ariel Barton's Cable net socks from Knitty, which you can view… Continue

Knitting Adventurer Visits Mt. Rushmore!

This is our second night in South Dakota, but we are now at the eastern side of the state. Our morning was spent at Mt. Rushmore, as you can see from this photo:





Of course, I took my knitting along. Here I am, so you know I was knitting there:





The rest of the day was spent in knitting in the car. I have at least another inch or two done on my Kristi sock and worked on my… Continue

Unbelievable News!

Hello, knitting friends! I'm posting from Hardin, MT, where we have a nice little spot in a KOA with full hookups! I'll get to an update on my current knitting, along with what I've been up to, but first my good news! [Drumroll, please.]

Our daughter is engaged! We found out yesterday. Not fully unexpected, but still wonderful news.The best news is that our prospective SIL is a wonderful guy, and he proposed in a way that was really sweet and unexpected. She deserves a great guy.… Continue

Missing Spinning

As you read this, I am on the road, hopefully knitting in the back seat with Sunny, or enjoying the outdoors with the whole family. IF I didn't take my spinning wheel (my lovely, adorable, efficient and user-friendly Kromski Sonata), I am missing spinning very much. My thoughts drift back to my last spinning meeting at Linda's:





As you can see, it was a nice day. Sunny and pleasantly warm. Lynda is spinning yummy merino wool on… Continue

Making Progress

My CLC is chugging along. Soon I'll be ready to steek!!! Eek! Here's what it looked like before steeking:





And here is the finished CLC:





As you can see, it's up to the neck, and maybe you can't see that I've finished the purl row for the fold and have begun to work down the facing. Next comes the steek! The coilless safety pins mark the edges of the steek. I had them handy… Continue

FOs?

There is a finish to our objects. Projects end, either because we throw them in the trash or because we come to some other kind of conclusion, such as a successful completion. During our quilting/knitting minigroup (aka "Common Threads"), my friend Kay finished the afghan she was making for a friend. Here is Kay (right) holding up her afghan. My friend Joanie (of the "Sheepish Ladies") is on the left. Hooray for a finished object, even if it wasn't one of mine! (I tried to get her to leave it… Continue

Shear Terror!

The clouds parted, and the gentle sunlight spread over the little pastures and driveway of my friend Linda's alpaca farm. The fluffy heads were erect, like glass-headed pins stuck into round, fuzzy pin cushions, as the animals gazed with curiosity at the row of cars, parked diagonally, like the parking lot of a strip mall. What were so many humans doing, coming to visit Linda? Little did they know...



Monday was shearing day for the fluffy alpacas at Linda's. It had been scheduled for… Continue

On a Roll!

Well, I'm getting some knitting done, as you can see. I need to dig out my quilting and see if I'm able to do anything with needle and thread. Here's what I'm working on primarily, 30 minutes at a time, several times a day:





Above you see my Nonna's Garden Shawl up to row 7, and my CLC body up to row 6. (I used a provisional CO and will do my hem in with knitting the front side, as I did for the sleeves.) It's going slowly because, as… Continue

I CAN KNIT! Well, a little!

I just got back from physical therapy, and the therapist says I can take off the splint and knit, but only for 30 min. at a time, and if it hurts at night, then I need to cut back. I'm going to take it easy, but I have started working on the first pattern row of my Nonna's Garden Shawl. When I get the first row done, I know the following rows will be easier, because I'll have the various blocks of color to tell me where to put the colors in the next row. After I finish work on the Nonna, I want… Continue
