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
