Another pair of leg warmers finished up. This is a design I did myself out of scrap yarns we had.
I’m really in love with the way this scarf is looking. It took me a bit of trial and error to get the colors right; they don’t match the original perfectly (the purple should be more red, the green more…
This is one of my current knitting projects – super hero capes for kids. I’m making at least three and possibly four of them; two red, (for Superman and Supergirl) one blue (Batgirl) and one white with gold trim (oh…
Isn’t this guy cute as all get out? I love the colors.
On my sock knitting project.
In the spirit of this article I linked to the other day on Jimiyo, And a challenge from the unmarketing blog on twitter: “For one day this week, stop consuming info and create something.” I’m going to try to set…
378 stitches per row. Another scarf I’m working on.
Just got started on this new scarf for me.
Finally was able to finish this hat- had to wait until class met again so I could get help fixing a problem.
Finished the first of another set of leg warmers, ensuring toasty warm ankles for me the rest of winter. Bring it on.
My ankles are always cold in the winter, so I’m whipping up another pair of leg warmers to wear over my socks. I plan to make several pairs of these this winter so I can rotate.
Here are a couple of books we’re picking up for future projects. The Ohio Knitting Mills Knitting Book: 26 Patterns Celebrating Four Decades of American Sweater Style Cowl Girls: The Neck’s Big Thing to Knit And this is one we’re…
A hat out of my favorite yarn.
Button Tab I’m making. The yarn is gorgeous.
This is a pattern that was handed out free at Mass Ave. Knit Shop. I took a photo because the print copies were all gone. Three balls of cotton (300 yards or so). Needles: Size 7 or 8 Cast on…
Seasonal Affective Disorder has hit me full in the face in the last several weeks, and sadly, my 365 project is a casualty. Between a number or projects at work and the weather, I can’t seem to get photos processed…
It struck me on the way in to work this morning that the reason I love knitting so much is because it’s design in almost pure form. With web design, there are so many hurdles you have to jump through…

Nope, I haven’t quit the 365 photo project, I’m just behind on putting the photos I’ve taken up. I know – three day weekend for me and I couldn’t get it done. But I was working on the project —…
I dithered back and forth about what new yarn to use and what new stitch pattern to try, until I drove myself nuts. Stephanie’s not feeling well, and I don’t feel great either, so I opted for comfort, and grabbed…
Try JibJab Sendables® eCards today! We had a pretty calm but eventful year in 2009. I spend a chunk of January getting our staircase room painted, and we also stripped the wallpaper and painted a bedroom at Stephanie’s rental house.…

Finished my striped scarf, and am working away on a Santa hat at Stephanie’s dad’s house while Stephanie and her dad fix dinner.
Wow – time to wrap up the year, and I’m utterly at loose ends with various projects. I’ve been working steadily on knitting projects, and organizing the house, two areas where we’ve made some pretty big gains. We’re steadily getting…
I’ve been in quite a blue funk lately. A large chunk of that is due to hitting 41, which seems to have affected me more than 40 did by a large margin. The “thinking about mortality” issues that advance with…
I’m learning to knit. This piece will be a scarf alternating brightly-colored stripes with stripes of black.
