Knitting on the Road – Haggerstown, MD

Note to all, as with the last post, this one should have come out already. However, I was once again working with pen and paper and finally got around to typing it up... Yes, I am moving rather slow.

You can read my Dad's notes on the weekend over at the Homegrown String Band blog: HERE

April Showers bring Knitters

A baby hat, a scarf, some mittens, or handwarmers, a shawl, a pair of slippers or booties, blankets or lapghans, etc. All of these items are needed by the youth walking on city streets. Some are young mothers/fathers and some are just abandoned by families of broken homes. Whatever the reason, the Solomon's Porch is helping these youth…

The yarn is KP's Gloss in "Parsley." The pattern is Ariel Barton's Cable Net Socks from…

Back to Real Life!

My medal for "Fleece to FO Long Track" is official, so time to get back to real life. My fiber studio yesterday morning looked like this--

I organized my yarn stash. Here's what the sock and fingering section looks like:

Approaching the Stadium...Well, Soon!

Visits to the frog pond are like missing the target. You get to do a few penalty laps! Still, I'm making good progress:

I know I frogged at least 80 rows, so that was a lot of penalty laps! I'm on the last pattern change, though, so I think this might be doable (finishing before the Ravelympics are done), barring further mistakes! It's the…

Compulories Finished--Still Out On Course!

Report from Ravelympics--I'm still out on the course, working away. I just finished the spinning part of my competition (Fleece to FO Long Track) and the yarn is having a nice bath. Here's what it looked like waiting for me to prepare the warm water laced with Kookaburra Woolwash.…

Finally better

Today, I'm feeling much better; that's saying a lot figuring how this last week went. I've been down with a cold/flu-like bug, which forced me to knit all week (damn!) as I had no energy for anything else. I finished my discovery socks, the first I made out of Cat Bordhi's new book. I learned a lot about sock construction and am hoping this will help when I make other socks outside of Bordhi's book.

I also am working on a sweater for my dad, as well as this soft yummy…

Danger!... Danger!....

Your circuit boards may explode from cuteness overload!

Check out Nina's Mr. Roboto kit. I was the lucky tester for this project, and let me just say, with a robo-crazy kiddo @ home, these little guys were ridiculously hard to part with!…

Gearing Up for Opening Ceremonies

Just a day and a few hours remain until the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics, and I'm feverishly getting ready for my participation in the Ravelympics. I've been spinning white baby alpaca to make the Landscape Shawl for the event "Fleece to FO Long Track." Here's what I plied last night:…

A finished scarf and a new hat!

I finished the scarf for Tails of Hope Foundation 10,000 scarves by Nov1. I used fun fur by itself without a carry along, and I love the feel of it...I wanted to give it an animal look of sorts...but I think I got a caterpillar instead...LOL…

Karin Tote Progress

As several of you know, I cast on for the Karin Tote the other day. Well, I finished knitting the bottom and ends of the bag on Monday...

Being all stockinette stitch, it is hard to get a good pic before blocking, but you get the idea.

Yesterday I decided to do the strap and thereby finish all regular knitting... now I have enough knitting time invested that I cannot let the cabled sides intimidate me.

Well, I… Continue

More knitting, of course!

I'm making some socks and have a deadline of the end of the month to post them. I have 1.5 done so think I can get them finished in time. This is the first project where I've done stranded work so it's a challenge to get the tension right. I can get the first sock on ok, so hopefully that means I'm not doing too bad. Luckily the yarn is sport weight, as I'm a fairly slow knitter.…

If Mum could see me now.

Well I been sitting here knitting away for a couple of hours and all most finished my son's blankie. I am calling it a rush job as we have a little problem. He has torn up his blankie that his Gran made before he was born and he is more then a little upset. You see Chrissie my youngest has down syndrome and at the age of is 11 is still trying to grow out of the terrible two's so to speak. He never sleeps with out his blankie which he has carried every where since he was born. His twin sister… Continue

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot...

One of my new year's resolutions is to photograph and upload long-finished projects. Like this one...

Here's the back:

This is the Persian Poppy Waistcoat from Kaffe Fassett at the V & A. I actually went to the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1988 and met Kaffe Fassett, who was giving a talk there. He left California years ago to visit a friend in England, and ended… Continue
