Minimalist Cardigan-Maximal Time

Minimalist Cardigan-Maximal Time

Originally, I planned to have the Minimalist Cardigan done in mid-October after starting in early August. But a lot of things got in the way, so it took me until last Wednesday to finally finish the finishing. I was home alone while M and his…

Sweater Stuff

Sweater Stuff

Once upon a time, long enough ago that I was a legal adult and M was still a minor, I used to sew a lot. Set-in sleeves were no big deal. I sewed the sleeve into a tube, the side seams of the body were…

Sock Stuff

Sock Stuff

I finished knitting the sock for my pal! I wrote the pattern (and checked it twice)! I made stitch markers! I boxed it all up! I forgot to photograph it! I could cut through the mailing label and the packing tape, unwrap things, but I…

I’m a day late with the WIPs, but a headache kept me off the computer yesterday evening. So, it’s WIPs on Thursday this week. In August when I started planning my autumn knitting, I wanted to get four things knitted by October: the spaced check…

WIPs with a Green Tape Measure

WIPs with a Green Tape Measure

Before I WIP it for this week, I want to say I received my Ravelry invite on Sunday. I’m still learning my way around the site, where I can be found under the sobriquet of MolecularKnit, but I have already found several projects to put…

Minimalist Cardigan

Minimalist Cardigan
