Socks and Suds

Finished my Mabon/Autumn Equinox socks last week, but just got the card out of my camera to upload the snaps.  I’m quite happy with these – the pattern is Embossed Socks, and the yarn is BMFA STR Lightweight in ST-1.  Oh, the yarny autumnal goodness.  At YarnCon this past weekend, my sister and I discovered […]

What a Week

I’ve been crazy busy and apologize for the dearth of posts – bad blogger.  I’ve just finished dealing with a pipe that burst in my office over the weekend… had to have the carpet replaced, lost all of the paperwork, and have just been all around stressed. I have hopes that next week will be […]

Out of Sorts

I’ve come down with both a nasty cold and a nastier case of startitis.  I cast on a pair of socks (my own design) before realizing that the yarn was all wrong.  Frogged.  Then, I cast on a shawl.  I’ve been reading too many blogs about lace shawls lately, and it’s making me itch to […]

Two in a Row

I’m terribly inconsistent… I go weeks without blogging, then post two days in a row.  I blame Spring.  There’s just entirely too much to do, even in a grey, rainy Spring such as the one we’ve had.  That’s probably why I wanted some serious colour for the Midsummer socks.  Imagine, then, my delight when I […]

Better Late Than Never

These Beltane socks were nearly my downfall.  I must confess that they were actually finished a bit after May 1st, but really, who’s judging??  I started off with a gorgeous pattern and gorgeous yarn… they just weren’t meant to be gorgeous together.  After frogging a pair of sock toes that would have fit over Frankenstein’s […]

Flutterby

Since my last update, I’ve knitted up the Ostara socks for my self-imposed Wheel of the Year Challenge.  I cast these on during the blizzard earlier in February, and that might have had an impact on my subject choice.  I was utterly sick of snow, so I nabbed some bright, cheerful sunrise shades of Unique […]

Finishitis

It’s finally happened, I encountered that oh-so-rare bird known as ‘finishitis’.  All knitters know its close relative, ‘startitis’ (which the Yarn Harlot so recently faced), but most consider ‘finishitis’ to be mere myth.  I can say with great joy that this isn’t the case.  In the span of just a few short days (well, maybe […]

Ms. Fixit

I’ve been working on my Imbolc socks, which I cast on a few days ago on Yule – keeping to the schedule so far, which is to be expected since this is only the second pair of my self-imposed challenge.  These are my first pair of toe-up socks, and are a lovely KSD odd-duck of […]

One down, seven to go

I finished my Yule socks!  And what could be more fitting than to photograph them in the snow?  Though I will admit that this was the fastest shoot I’ve done, since it’s bloody cold out there today.  I’ve also been working on more holiday knitting/crocheting, which I of course can’t blog about just yet.  One […]

Challenge

Sorry for the dearth of posts – been working on holiday knitting and can’t blog about that in case the recipients see! I recently gave myself a challenge.  I’ve been following the Yarn Harlot’s tales of her self-imposed sock club, and I loved the idea.  However, I know myself too well to believe that I […]
