High Fiber—Old and New, Shake and Twirl

Joanie and I went to the Acorn Antique Show in Ogden, Saturday, with her companion, Ana.

We had lunch at the Union train station, as usual, at the Union Grill. Joanie presented me with a boy sheep and a girl sheep for Mothers' Day. I took this selfie with my two new…

Wearing Lace Shawls

I've heard a lot of people say they don't know how they would wear lace shawls, and that keeps them from knitting them. We think lace shawls are infinitely wearable (you don't even have to look like an old lady when you do wear them!), and here is Nina to demonstrate:

The shawls shown, in order, are:

Chinook Shawl - from the Lace Yarn Sampler Kits, shown in the… Continue

KAL knitting woes - 1 step forward, 2 steps back!

Well I'm a week into my knitting for the Knitting Goes Large KAL - and feel like I haven't progressed as much as I would have liked...

I'm trying not to be too frustrated... I was having some problems with the tension on stitches after the cable. Kelley gave me an Elizabeth Zimmerman hint... the problem is when going from K to P on cable there's less tension, so the last two… Continue

Road Trip Knitting

Over Thanksgiving, my parents and I drove down to visit my sister in San Jose. It's about 11 hours each way, so that meant lots of knitting time. I took along my mindless, feels-so-soft, comfortingly warm garter stitch afghan in the Bayou color of… Continue

Ta da!

Whew! Now that it looks better, I'll show it to you.... When I took the photos of my Apres Surf Hoodie on Monday, I placed the body strategically so you couldn't see the sides because I was embarrassed by how the sides looked. Early on, I had decided that I didn't want to deal with increasing and decreasing in pattern while I was knitting in the round, so I started at the hem with an extra 8 stitches in… Continue

Socks - Toe Up

I'm teaching a toe-up, two at a time magic loop sock class, so I've been playing with a new (to me, anyway) heel, which I am loving! When you knit socks toe-up, the traditional heel flap ends up underneath your heel - the part you walk on. But, I like having that slip stitch cushiony-ness on the back of my heel too, so this time I carried the slip stitches through the short rows and up the back of my heel a bit.…
