Lion Brand Ribbed Shell

      Since moving to the United¬† Kingdom mumbly-odd years ago (nine), I have found that my sleeves have shrunk to nothing. Oh, I have long-sleeved shirts, and plenty of awesome t-shirts (lately due to TeeTurtle). So making shirts like this gorgeous ribbed shell have suited my need to have a warm torso, but …

Pulina

The next top on my roster is the lovely Pulina in Berroco Karma. Now, as much as I admired this pattern, I was annoyed that I couldn’t find a similar-but-cheaper wool to do it in. So I sucked it up and bought the actual wool the pattern calls for. Still, I managed to get it …

Nesoi Tee

As promised, I’m starting to work through my projects, starting with the lovely Nesoi tee. The designer, Miriam Felton, is (besides being a good friend of mine) an amazing designer and knitter. It made me really happy to pick it to start my knitting for my summer holiday wardrobe.   Now, I won’t pretend that …

Back of the Queue (A Comedy of Errors)

Hello, crafty and sundry! Now, most of us will have a queue of projects in mind. I don’t know about most people, but I tend to leave it to one or two projects max, because I don’t want to have too many things tempting me — I work really hard to have one or two …

Hello, crafty and sundry!   When last we met, I was starting on a cardigan for my youngest daughter. I can report that as of today, it is done and complete! ¬† The buttons arrived this morning, and I quite happily sewed them on after I finished my for-pay work of the day. The nature …

I’ve been enjoying the holiday period for zoning out, which means more Skyrim than most other things. I’m level 55, I still have about 2 …

Dial S for Skyrim

Hello, Crafty and Sundry! Sorry y’all, I went quiet for a bit there. I was tinkering with the meds I take to keep my Bipolar Disorder in order (insert rimshot here), and I sort of lost a month of being able to word or do much. Whups.   That Knitter LifeSettings However, I was totally …

Better to Go With Two Knit Pro… jects

Hello, crafty and sundry! I have been a bit quiet around here lately. I’ve been working on my Rowan Hobo top exclusively, and I have to admit — it wasn’t really inspiring me to make any effort on it, or to blog about it. It’s coming along well, a few rows a day here and …

Slower Than Expected Socks

Hello, crafty and sundry! I don’t know why I thought a pair of socks would be a quick knit. I mean, it was in the scheme of things; it took me less than a month (or just over a month?) to crank them out. That’s pretty quick all told, especially considering that my focus has …

Socks and Tops and Things

Hello, crafty and sundry! I have been having a lovely time of knitting-not-knitting. Which is to say, I -am- knitting, but it took a lot of not-knitting to get to that point. Socks Even though I had i mind to do start my next big project in the form of my Hobo top, I also …
