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?
So turns out I'm not making a poncho. 🙂 Since I didn't find many poncho (or swoncho) designs for the two colors of yarn that I want to use next, and I'm still not in a design-friendly state of mind, I thought the East Beach Tee by Meghan Kelly would work best as my next … Continue reading New Project – East Beach Tee

(I still ended up frogging a few stitches here and there though. … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018
Until a couple of weeks ago, my bamboo eyelet cardigan was coming along nicely, when suddenly, I started to not really like how it was shaping up. I don't have a reason for why I don't like it -- I just don't. I don't feel like continuing to work on it, but I don't feel … Continue reading Potential froggings and possible breaks
