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

Pullover ft. Entrelac

Pullover ft. Entrelac

I can't believe I managed to finish the entrelac pullover before I start the Oshara Shawl MKAL! It's definitely not what I had in mind when I started experimenting on featuring entrelac, but it's also definitely not a bad attempt. My main concern in this design was to account for decreases and increases in the … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac

Pullover ft. Entrelac – Attempt #2

Since I hadn't much liked how my entrelac-featuring pullover attempt was going, I decided to try a different, easier-to-execute design.

Here's … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac – Attempt #2

(Of course, very little of the light colored yarn got used for the strip.) I'm now knitting … Continue reading Pullover ft. Entrelac – progress

Through Thick and Thin; The Difficult Yarn

Uh oh, the neck seemed to be coming along nicely, but when I join the left and right segments, the stripe at the join distorts. My sis and I remember owning a striped top a long time ago that distorted similarly, but I'm not really keen to have it remain distorted like this. Is the … Continue reading Through Thick and Thin; The Difficult Yarn

Lemony shawl

It's Lemony because of the beautiful bright-yellow color of the yarn. I started this project because I wanted something different to do while I was trying to finish other projects. 😀 Some of those other projects are still not done, but this wrap finished up pretty quickly. I first started with the top-down approach without … Continue reading Lemony shawl
