And the Knitting Resumes

The weather's consistently cooler these days, and that means knitting's back in my crafty corner! First, there's the Grimm Hat project, which I'd frogged since it turned out a bit too thick and cozy for my mom's taste - I'm now resuming a knitted hat that I'd started making with the yarn. I should finish … Continue reading And the Knitting Resumes

Basket Case Cardigan

I finished my Basket Case Cardigan (pattern by Kristen TenDyke) - and how I love it! I had a larger-than-usual quantity of this yarn, so I made the sweater's body longer than the pattern called for. I still have a little ball of the yarn left, and it'll go with the rest of my leftover … Continue reading Basket Case Cardigan

Torque Hat

I've gone from recently lamenting on not having WIP projects to having more than one! And I'm definitely not complaining. My Basket Case Cardigan is nearing completion, but I took a break from it to make my mom a hat. She doesn't usually wear hats, but increasingly colder winds in recent winters finally convinced her … Continue reading Torque Hat

WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

Ever since my do-nothing break, I've been knitting fairly often, if not every day. And I've made good progress on the sleeves. I'm knitting both sleeves simultaneously. I usually work with a single long circular needle and knit both sleeves on it, but my long needles set doesn't contain the 4.5mm needles that I need … Continue reading WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

I'm knitting away - sporadically as usual - on the Basket Case Cardigan. I enjoyed a week-long staycation earlier this month during Diwali, and I'd thought of making significant progress on the project then. However, I rarely picked up the knitting. I actually spent quite a few vacation days lounging about doing nothing much of … Continue reading WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

New Project: Basket Case Cardigan

Woot! I'm knitting again. Looks like buying a loom was the impetus for yarny project ideas to start showing themselves to my mind - even if they're not related to weaving. 😉 A couple of weeks ago, I was checking out yarn from my stash to use in an rectangular, 'real' weaving project - even … Continue reading New Project: Basket Case Cardigan

Waiting for a WIP

I think this is the longest I have gone without a 'big' yarny project - my latest was three months ago (the Strolling Round the Square Shawlette.) Though my creative urges are being satisfied by mixed media projects, I do miss working with yarns and threads. I miss it doubly when I go through a … Continue reading Waiting for a WIP

Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

I've completed my Strolling Round the Square Beaded Shawlette (pattern by Manda Shah), and I totally love it! I could say it's my new favorite project, but let's face it, every project that I finish seems like a favorite at that moment. 🙂 But really, I loved working on the project. It was challenging and … Continue reading Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

WIP: Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

I continue knitting the shawlette, and it definitely is challenging! (I love it!) Remember I'd talked last time about how I managed to figure out the missing errata for the project by creating a chart-chart? However, I was in for more surprises as I went deeper into the project - The number of stitches keeps … Continue reading WIP: Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

New Project – Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

Hello! I'm back since I just started on a new knitting project. It's been two months since my last knit, but the break didn't actually feel too bad, since I'm still enjoying being arty, and I had your crafty updates to check out. I'm glad my knitting mojo is back, however! 🙂 On my needles … Continue reading New Project – Strolling Round the Square Shawlette
