WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Progress has been slow on the Amherst Cardigan... As planned, I'm on the sleeves of the cardigan now, knitting both together. I'm happy I work two at a time now - makes it much difficult to make mistakes on only one of the sleeves, which I'm sure I've made on an old project because one … Continue reading WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

My Linen and Threads SAL project is now a wall hanging! I added decorative crochet edgings to the top and bottom of the piece, a dowel at the top, and a fringe at the bottom. The fringe is still wonky, and I'm hoping to find methods to straighten it. If all else fails, I'll just … Continue reading Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Hurrah! I did manage to finish the December section of the Mystery SAL from Linen and Threads. And that means the year-long project is now complete! I'd altered the section to shorten the dress of the human in this section, and I like that it turned out not too bad. I did make a mistake … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

The Haubergeon Blouse

After completing the forever sleeve(s) of the Haubergeon Sweater-based blouse that I was making for my mom, the body knitted up quickly. Blocking soon followed, and my mom has already worn it a few times now! (Mornings are finally a bit colder here...) I can definitely say that I loved the knit, even if the … Continue reading The Haubergeon Blouse

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

November's Linen and Threads SAL section was pretty intriguing due to the intricacy of the intersecting motifs in the design. I love how it turned out! I enjoyed the time I spent picking my colors. The little bit of blue that I used does not really stand out. I didn't think it would blend in … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Stitching in October was more fun than I'd thought it'd be, because mermaids! I decided on my colors pretty quickly, but I could see an element in this section that might be a problem. The mermaids here appear the way they probably would if they were real - with uncovered chests. On a coffee table … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Looks like I forgot to talk about my completion of the September section of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL! The single noteworthy event that happened this month was that I ran out of the pink thread. I stitched half of this section's pink part, and the skein ended, but when I rummaged through … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

August's Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL section was again a difficult one to color in, but I think I can grow to like how it turned out. 🙂 The coloring decision did involve some to and fro. The edges were a breeze, but the birds... Well, unless I made the tail feathers multicolored, which … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

I completed June-July of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL without too many hassles. This section is not as 'wow' for me as some of the other ones, but since it is not 'argh' either, I'll take it. 🙂 If you recall, I cobbled together the vine at the center from bits and pieces … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Works in Progress

I'm merrily switching between my two current projects this month. 🙂 The Oshara Shawl MKAL Week 3 of the MKAL is here, and like I predicted, I'm still on Week 2. 🙂 I felt that there was quite some variance in the knitting amount each week. I finished Week 1 in a day since it … Continue reading Works in Progress
