Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /6

I'm done with the May section of my Linen and Threads MSAL, and it was a pleasant experience when it comes to experiments. I didn't want to fill up the 'feathery' parts with a single block of color, so I tried out some gradients in this section - I moved from one color to another … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /6

Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /5

Well, I seem to have gravitated towards blue for the April section of my Linen and Threads MSAL... I'd thought of adding more colors to the light blue sections, but in the end, I went with a single color. The newly-revealed May section also has similar huge components, and this time around, I think I'll … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /5

Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /4

I eventually completed the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL, after I worked on the border of the April section as a kind of a break. For the March section's flowers, I stuck with my idea of a 'scribbly' version, with one strand each of yellow and red held together. This resulted in … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /4

Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /3

Oh the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I'm still plodding through it since March turned out to be a busy month. I seem to have finished about 3/4th of the section so far. There are flowers in the gaps between the greens, which I will get to next. I'd kept the flowers … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /3

Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /2

I've completed the February section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I love that the SAL fulfills my expectations of using a lot of colors this year - the sections are not too large, and that means I can use a variety of colors spread across small areas. Aren't the flowers cute? 🙂 The section's … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /2

WIP: Grimm Hat

I started on the Grimm Hat (Pattern by Sue Perez) since my mom wants a thicker hat for colder mornings. This hat uses crochet for its construction, so I'm hoping it meets her expectations. I liked the oblique / diagonal stripes on the hat band. I ended up changing the join row - I'm unsure … Continue reading WIP: Grimm Hat

WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

Ever since my do-nothing break, I've been knitting fairly often, if not every day. And I've made good progress on the sleeves. I'm knitting both sleeves simultaneously. I usually work with a single long circular needle and knit both sleeves on it, but my long needles set doesn't contain the 4.5mm needles that I need … Continue reading WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

I'm knitting away - sporadically as usual - on the Basket Case Cardigan. I enjoyed a week-long staycation earlier this month during Diwali, and I'd thought of making significant progress on the project then. However, I rarely picked up the knitting. I actually spent quite a few vacation days lounging about doing nothing much of … Continue reading WIP: Basket Case Cardigan

New Project: Basket Case Cardigan

Woot! I'm knitting again. Looks like buying a loom was the impetus for yarny project ideas to start showing themselves to my mind - even if they're not related to weaving. 😉 A couple of weeks ago, I was checking out yarn from my stash to use in an rectangular, 'real' weaving project - even … Continue reading New Project: Basket Case Cardigan

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
