Bison socks

Bison socks

Behold, some finished Hermione’s Everyday Socks out of Buffalo Wool Co. Tracks Sport in Amethyst. These are sport weight socks, so I was able to cast on 75% of my usual amount of stitches and for the most part every time I put work into them they flew by. They...

Lately I’ve been having some right arm and wrist aches. That always freaks me out a bit and I try my best to slow down with the knitting. I’ve been trying to help things by alternating between sport weight socks and a worsted weight sweater, but...

If you’re into knitting and politics you’ve probably already heard of the Pussy Hat Project. This post is quite belated for the marches that happened all over the country and world at the end of January, but I finally finished one of these Pussy Hats for...
A sweater that makes me question my sanity

A sweater that makes me question my sanity

I’m mad at this sweater. Sometimes I want to throw it across the room or shove it into a project bag and put off thinking about it for a year. Perhaps I should have ripped it out (for the third time) awhile ago. This is a case where I want the finished object...

Awkward poses

Flaum is getting continued attention and the magic of the collar/body connection fully makes sense in my brain now. Once my brain understood the construction I thought it was brilliant. Sometimes I’m a little spatially challenged. I’m knitting this in...

The body of Zooey’s mini Still Light Tunic is finished! She had a few complaints about the “skirt” as I was knitting it, mostly because it doesn’t contain ruffles. I think she will change her mind when she puts it on, and I’ve let her...
Trust the pattern

Trust the pattern

Sometimes I’m working on a pattern and just can see all of the ways the pieces will form and fit together. It is this way with Flaum. I don’t want to give away any of the secrets of the pattern, but it starts with the collar and that will be worked with...
What else can I say about socks?

What else can I say about socks?

I’ve finished another pair of socks. Gasp! Surely not me! I never knit socks! (Insert plenty of sarcasm here). Put “sock” in the search bar on the side and you’ll see what I mean…The pattern is called Staccato Socks and the yarn is...
