A matched pair

A matched pair

The Endpaper Mitts are finished and have been handed off to Zooey’s kindergarten teacher. I didn’t get to see her open them, so I’m just hoping she enjoys them! I’m glad to have them done. When I put my concentration on finishing the second one...
Socks I almost forgot!

Socks I almost forgot!

In the rush to get the second Endpaper Mitt done I totally forgot some socks I started in mid December when I was at the coolest psychotherapy conference ever. This yarn is the color Biker Chick in the Estrellita base from Miss Babs Yarns. The color was haunting my...
Solitary mitt

Solitary mitt

It feels like forever since I’ve blogged, even though it’s really only been about 11 days. The anxiety creeps up and I realize I’ve said nothing about knitting on the internet and must say something immediately. Here’s my proof of knitting in...
Baby pants are my favorite pants

Baby pants are my favorite pants

I wish I could show you these pants on my sweet and adorable niece, but alas in the festivities of Christmas I forgot to try for a photo like that. I did remember to take a hasty photo before I wrapped them in a package, so at least I can share those. These are a...
Endpaper love

Endpaper love

I adore this pattern. Endpaper Mitts is a free pattern by Eunny Jang that has been around for at least a decade, because it was about a decade ago that I made my first pair. I wore those for years and was devastated when I lost one of them while biking in 2011. I...
Aperture, the gradient version

Aperture, the gradient version

This version of Aperture Shawl was a little improvised at some stages. I used a Katia Gradient kit and planned on following the charts for the smaller shawl. I wanted to use as much yarn as I could by making additional repeats of the final shawl chart for as long as I...

Twin soles

Matt and I now have matching socks. I’ve had mine for some time, but I got the opportunity to try out some Regia 6-ply from the first Arne and Carlos line in my favorite colorway, Fall Night. Knitting socks in the 6-ply version are much much faster. I believe I...
Timely and secretive knits

Timely and secretive knits

I’ve been knitting Matt about one sweater a year since we’ve gotten married. December is our anniversary month and it seemed time to tackle another sweater. He really wanted something in fingering weight, and navy. At Rhinebeck I came across Miss Babs...
Stash management

Stash management

I went a little crazy the day before Thanksgiving and went through my stash. I should have been solely focused on getting our house ready for hosting the next day, but I got that inspirational urge/itch that won’t go away. I started with the UFO basket in the...
Hooray for algebra!

Hooray for algebra!

A couple of Knit Picks catalogs ago, Zooey saw the Lewisburg Pullover as she was looking through the catalog, and she said she had to have it. I was excited to have a project that she was enthusiastic about from the start. For all of those folks that say they never...
