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

WIP – Kashmiri Shawl

My Kashmiri Shawl is coming along well. I knit a couple more repeats of the first pattern than I'd originally planned - my row gauge had turned out to be a bit off - and now I've made about half a repeat of the second pattern. I've not figured out the new pattern yet, and … Continue reading WIP – Kashmiri Shawl

A New Project – Kashmiri Shawl

It's time to fulfill my wish of knitting a lace shawl after the (un)fashionably delayed completion of my Amherst Sweater knit! Since my sister and I have still not zeroed in on a project for her, I started on a shawl for me (or for Mom if she likes it when I'm done.) I'm now … Continue reading A New Project – Kashmiri Shawl

Amherst Cardigan

Amherst Cardigan

I've finished knitting the Amherst Cardigan! Emphasis on the word 'knitting', since the actual finishing - the blocking - still remains to be done. I'll get to that after about six months, since that's probably when I'll finally use the sweater. The ends are woven in, thankfully, since I weave in ends as I go, … Continue reading Amherst Cardigan
