Once again I’m linking up with Ginny’s yarn along. I’ve been making good progress on my bertrand louis cowl and am continuing to love the look of the stitches and the dimensionality that’s coming with the half brioche pattern. It feels wonderful too. I think I’m pretty close to done. I’m supposed to knit it … Continue reading

Yarn Along: Felted hearts
This week as my contribution to Ginny’s yarn along, I am showing off my cute little felted hearts I made. I’m excited about these since my last few weeks of knitting haven’t turned out final products with which I’ve been very happy. These hearts, though, are adorable and were really fun to make. The pattern … Continue reading
Yarn along and free knitting patterns for hearts
Here we are again, the weekly yarn along with Small Things. I’ve finally gotten finished with my Honey cowl (pattern available here).

Yarn Along: Free & Easy… Two words I like to see!
I’m finding that being a part of Ginny’s Wednesday yarn alongs has made me far more productive in my knitting. I like the accountability that comes with sharing pictures of my knitting progress. I’m currently procrastinating doing what I know I need to on my fingerless gloves (ripping back), so have been getting lots done … Continue reading
Wednesday Yarn Along: Scissors are my friend. and, cowls are more fun than washcloths.
Last week I told you all that I had botched up my fingerless gloves and I wanted help from knitting genies and geniuses. Well, you were wonderful. Between my Facebook page help, comments on this blog, and in-person suggestions, I had a number of options to choose from. The suggestions included: 1) the obvious but … Continue reading
Washcloths and Failures
This is my update on the yarn along. It’s also a chance to tell you I’m making a new “super easy, use up some yarn you probably already have” pattern. Any guesses which is the washcloth and which is the failure? Right. I was all happy and possibly a bit cocky last week about how … Continue reading
I fell off the wagon…
I made it eight days into 2012 before I fell off the wagon. No, not the liquor wagon or the food wagon (food cart?)… Actually, I don’t know the origin of that phrase “off the wagon,” so if I’m mixing metaphors as I go on, sorry about that. I generally have a pretty good grasp … Continue reading
Where tech & knitting (& carpentry?) collide
So does it mean I’m a tech geek or that I’m industrious or just plain lazy that sometimes I use my iPad to measure my knitting so I don’t have to carry a tape measure? My tape measure is a cute little sheep that I really should alway carry with me. However, the other day … Continue reading
