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

East Beach Tee

East Beach Tee | Anita

I'm happiest when starting a project, and even more so, while I'm ending it - especially while blocking, when I can admire the fruits of the hard (but enjoyable) work that I put in over the past few weeks (or months, in my case.) And it is with a happy grin that I present my … Continue reading East Beach Tee

WIP: East Beach Tee

Still knitting this one. I'd thought I would wear it at least once before the year ends, but now I'm not too sure - I have a competing ongoing activity, my art journal project. (Speaking of the year ending, where did 2019 go?) The good news, though, is that there will be absolutely no yarn … Continue reading WIP: East Beach Tee

East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

Looks like my chosen two colors for the East Beach Tee are not meant to be. Regardless of the combination I came up with, it turns out I cannot make this project with these two - I'd fall short on one color every time. So I frogged some of the project, and changed the contrast … Continue reading East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

Back from a Detour

If there's such a thing as a Contemplation-in-Progress project, then that's what I'm working on. And sporadically at that. I actually haven't knit or done any kind of yarn related work at all for more than 2 weeks now. I've been doing some programming for myself, and it was going so great that I didn't … Continue reading Back from a Detour

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Looks like I managed productive bursts of knitting towards the end of my current project, and completed it as a surprise move! I'm as surprised as you are - I certainly expected this post to be an I'm-almost-there one. This shawl is inspired by Puck's Tunic from Susanna IC. I knit the shawl with sections … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP

My current project, a shawl for my sister, is inspired by a tunic. She really liked the pattern when we browsed through magazines for potential candidates, and I just have to multiply the pattern by N to make a shawl from a tunic, right? 🙂 Puck's Tunic is designed by Susanna IC. (Remember my Oshara … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP

Kashmiri Shawl

Kashmiri Shawl | Anita

My Kashmiri Shawl is now done! The shawl is a pattern from Lana Jois, to which I've made very minimal modifications to better suit the yarn and my preferences.   Ever spent ages trying (and failing) to capture in pictures just how lovely you find your project? I keep thinking the pictures just don't do … Continue reading Kashmiri Shawl
