Two socks at once – double the fun!

After I’d finished with my Halloween projects last fall, I finally had time to try something I’d been wanting to learn for a while. You see, I still had never finished the second sock of the pair that I’d started last spring for my middle daughter – yes, the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome. So whether […]

Hellos and Harry Potter

Well hello there (blows a little dust off the edge of the site). It’s so nice to see you again – yes, I know it’s been a little while. I’m full of excuses but basically it’s been summertime and nope, there hasn’t been a whole lot of knitting going on around here. I could blame […]

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week -2KCBWDAY2: Skill + 1UP

One of the knitting-related blogs that I’ve discovered lately is called Eskimimi Knits, and I love seeing all of her projects. I also found out that she’s doing this great project called Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – which is a fun way to get a lot of crafty bloggers to all blog on certain […]

OTN: Two projects at once

Stop the presses – I’m actually working on more than one thing at a time! Well, kind of. Since I got kind of stalled out on the second glove that I was making and found that I was going crazy without some type of project to work on while waiting… I tend to be more […]

Knitted glove update

I’m almost done with the first glove! It’s really a very easy pattern and so much easier to do using Magic Loop than trying to juggle a bunch of dpns on the fingers. There’s really only one kind of issue that I’m having – and that has to do with the yarn I’m using for […]

What’s there to do when snowed in…

But knit, of course! I finally started a new project tonight – it took a little while for me to figure out what I wanted to do. And I’ll probably end up with 2 things going concurrently just so I don’t run into this whole thing again of not having anything to work on once […]

Ten Days

That’s all it took for me to knit an entire pair of socks, using the Magic Loop method! I finished the second sock tonight and can’t wait to wear them tomorrow. The second sock was definitely easier than the first – although I still tend to lose a stitch when I join the round, so […]

I’m in love!

With the ‘Magic Loop’ method for knitting in circles, that is.  Not that I’m about to throw out every single pair of my dpns… But wow, is it ever so much easier. I had a feeling that I would feel this way from everything that I’d heard and read from other knitters, but I was […]
