I think I just completed a perfect shawl for transitioning into winter, and though this one is for my sister, I might want to make one for myself. 😉 I even want to use the same color, because it's so bright and cheerful and gorgeous! Since this is a rectangular shawl, I designed it to … Continue reading Fall Shawl
Entrelac is a technique for which I always need a refresher tutorial, but once I relearn its principles, I wonder how I ever forgot. 🙂 I'd bought two colors of this speckled Nako yarn, from which I plan to make two sweaters that each have one main color and a little bit of the other … Continue reading Ideas – Pullover ft. Entrelac
I guess it was too much to hope that I'd complete this project last year, but it's finally ready. Well, almost ready, since I feel the sweater could do with more buttons but we've not ordered any. However, it's wearable now, so can I consider it done already? 🙂 The cardigan used up almost 1400 … Continue reading A Texturilicious Cardigan
After a successful stripey top, it's time for a new project! The project on my needles right now is a cardigan for my sis that I started this week.

I've decided to name all my projects hoping that it'll make me more attached to them, and they don't end up getting abandoned or frogged. Let's see if I stay with this one Through Thick and Thin. 😛 I'm … Continue reading Through Thick and Thin
My knitting mojo's back! (That break wasn't very long, was it? 😛 ) I'll not go back to the bamboo eyelet cardigan, but I'll not frog it either -- it's folded up for now, and its fate remains undecided. I'm all ready for a new project, though. I'd liked working with Nako Comfort Stretch sock-weight … Continue reading Guess who’s ready to swatch?
Finally, finally! My cabled top is ready. 🙂 This was the most fun I've had with cables till now -- never a boring row! I did work on it on and off, though, so that might have been a contributing factor to the not getting bored bit. 😛 The Nako Saten yarn that I used … Continue reading Cable City!
