Knit One, Purl Too: A Knitlog

She was such a nice girl, before all that knitting

Yes, I am still knitting.

The world doesn’t suffer from a lack of knitblogs, but I was suddenly overcome with a powerful urge to update, so here are a few things I’ve done since we last saw each other: 1. Packed up my family and moved to take a new job in January. Pros: a kickass LYS 5 minutes from […]

The Monogamist

Thirteen months to knit the first chart, four days to knit the rest. It was a lost weekend of the best kind. Evelyn Clark, I love you.

Off to a good start.

Because I felt like leaving behind the feeling of disappointment brought on by knitting a sweater with armholes that are too small, I knit the Knit One, Purl Too birthday boy (aka my husband) a hat, at his request. “Please make me a Moby Dick hat” was all he needed to say, but he also […]

We offer that in “too small” and “slightly less too small.”

Whenever I say I am going to stop knitting to deadlines, let’s just all assume that I am L-Y-I-N-G. Apparently, I love the added frisson of uncertainty (Can I get it done?) more than I loathe the agony of defeat. I brought this on myself. Way back in January, I started Fionn for my lovely […]

You would be wrong.

You might think, after working a month and a half on preparing a sock knitting presentation for my spinning guild, I’d be sick of sock knitting – almost, but you would be wrong. I promised mom a pair of birthday socks, and before I headed off into the wild blue knitting yonder to cast on […]

Another thing for the “life list.”

I once swore I wouldn’t post without photos, so I present the best photo I’ve taken all year: See? That was worth waiting for. 550 yards of a heavy fingering weight yarn, lofty and soft superwash merino from this fiber by AllSpunUp (still damp when I took this). I proved to myself that I can […]

Notes from the Tour de Fleece

Mon, 26 Jul 2010 20:25:11 +0000

Though the last week of the Tour was filled with travel and a visit from my parents, I was still a productive spinner – this is 8 ounces of California Variegated Mutant spun up into about 175 yards of sportweight 2-ply. Of course, I thought this yarn was worsted weight, and I ended up using […]

Never give up! Never surrender!

For me, learning to spin has been an exercise in patience. I balanced the idea that every time I tried to spin it was hard and I sucked against the notion I kept reading about: it takes a pound of fiber to get any good at spinning. So if I gave up before I had […]

All-points bulletin

Now I can't find the sock. Sock #2 to be specific. I know the sock made it home with us after the trip, but it seems to have been tucked away somewhere in a bout of pre-Mother's Day cleaning and might not surface for months. I hope that's not the case, but I've looked everywhere and my optimism is fading. I was just a few inches away from a finished pair, too.

Not for lack of trying.

My one regret? I turned off the Olympics after the (awesome) hockey game because I didn't want to see the torch go out without having finished, and I missed William Shatner and the dancing maple leaves.
