Long Summer

Category: craft, Finished Objects | Comments Off on Long Summer

This summer was a pile of poop. Life was really busy kicking my ass and the blog didn’t even enter my mind, and anything I had to say wouldn’t have been for public consumption even if I had. But I finished 2 hats and a pair of socks. For the socks, the 2nd one was […]

Some hats.

I’ve been doing a little bit of knitting this spring/summer. Very little really, but enough to produce two hats. Both are the same yarn, because I liked it. :) Conversationalist hat in Knitcircus Ringmaster (worsted, Lambeau Leap) Parrotfish/Pomatomus Hat in Knitcircus Ringmaster (worsted, Beach Glass)

So I’ve been spinning while watching baseball lately, mostly on the weekends, as weeknights it’s generally when we eat dinner, but still, spinning! I’ve cleaned a few things off my bobbins by finishing up 2 spinning projects that have been going off an on for a few years now. If you’re like me, you’re mostly […]

Bolting is finished! It only took 18 months and 4 days to do it. That’s not to say I was knitting that whole time. I wasn’t. For instance, I started the cast off back in September, and was just under halfway through it, and it sat there for months because I hated that fuzzy shit […]

Climb – Jane Richmond

Holy shit I actually finished a knit! Two if you count them as individuals. After a long ban from homemade socks, shmoo managed to wheedle himself back into my good graces when I said I was knitting socks because I wanted a small project for our traveling, and my current shawl I’ve been working on […]

Online Sheep and Wool.

This year MSW hit the same time it always does… the first full weekend in May. The problem with that of course, was I was still pretty tired from the tonsil surgery, and we had Senators/Baysox games Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and I knew I would not be up to all 3 games and MSW. […]

Another year, another Maryland Sheep and Wool. I picked up all the fiber below as well as two bobbins for my Wooly Winder. The stuff on the right is heaven. Naturally Chocolate colored Alpaca and Silk (70/30) and it’s heaven to touch and spin. I had some gray two years ago, and last year she […]

2013 wrap up

Category: craft, knitting | Comments Off on 2013 wrap up

I may have been a craptastic knitter most of the year, but I finished December strong. I knit a shawl, crocheted a hat, and then on Christmas Eve whipped out a dog sweater. The shawl was Shaelyn and I knit it for someone at work who was getting married. She loved it. The hat is […]

So, we’ve managed to unpack most things we can without committing to new furniture first, and life is chugging along. I’ve managed to get Bronchitis but am finally in the last bit of cough that sticks around forever stage. I’ve finished a knit! But it’s going to be a Christmas gift so it can’t be […]

The state of things June 2013

So last month was MSW, and I bought some stuff. Not a TON of stuff, but certainly enough when combined with what I already had that I am really quite good for a while. Right now I am spinning on the lovely gradient blended batts I got from Caroline’s Etsy shop. But I’ve decide not […]
