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
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
Looks like my chosen two colors for the East Beach Tee are not meant to be.

I've been looking at making a crochet yoke for the top, so I can add it back … Continue reading WIP: Yesteryear Yoke
Finally, I got to finish my stripey top, block it, and click a picture of it! I completed knitting the top last week, and though Nako Comfort Stretch yarn doesn't really need much blocking, I'd wanted to block the neckline to see if it would fix the distortion of the yellow stripe near the neck … Continue reading Through Thick and Thin
