Knitting! Plus some gardening, cocktails, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

WIPs

What have I been doing?

What have I been doing?

I didn’t mean to be away so long. April was a lot of stress and anxiety, and I didn’t knit. I don’t seem to find knitting relaxing when I’m stressed out. I did do a lot of reading. May gradually got better, and I started […]

WIPs and Praying Mantis

WIPs and Praying Mantis

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 […]

Whipping Through the WIPs

Whipping Through the WIPs

I got home late today, and I have things to do, but I also wanted to keep to a WIPs on Wednesday post, so I’m going to whip through the WIPs. WIPs being my works in progress (my only aunt is a new reader, so […]

WIP Survey

WIP Survey

Before looking at this weeks WIPs, go enter my blogiversary contest, if you haven’t already! And take a look at the links in people’s comments. As a community we have knit some very cool things this past year. There are some former WIPs that are […]

WIPs and Contests!

WIPs and Contests!

You’ll have to wade through the WIPs to get to the contest info (or skip to the bottom if you are a heartless blog reader). I didn’t do any knitting on either scarf this past week, so I don’t have couch-o-meter progress this week. Last […]

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 […]

WIP Trio

WIP Trio

I’ve learned something about myself. I should never sign up for knit-alongs. It’s Summer of Socks 2007, and my interest in knitting socks has vanished. The last time this happened was last October when I “took part” in Socktoberfest. I don’t know what my problem […]

Diffusing Light and Pink Knitting

Diffusing Light and Pink Knitting

Well, I promised to tell you the trick I learned for diffusing light, thereby getting rid of shadows. I learned this a while ago from Domesticat. An article on photographing beadwork in the new June issue of Bead and Button magazine, spurred me to try […]

First WIPs of 2007

First WIPs of 2007

2006 was my most knittingest year so far. I completed 14 projects, including one sweater. However, not everything I started in 2006 I finished, and I am carrying some things over. As I have a lot of knitting I want to do this year, I […]
