Knitting in blues and pondering Find Your Fade

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 00:58:07 +0000

I’ve been working on Melanie Berg’s On The Spice Market, but I am temporarily foiled by the m3k3s in section 3. I somehow am making 4 instead of 3 perhaps? It is a mystery, I am going to wait until I can get to my knitting group and pray for an intervention. In the meantime […]

2016 year in reading

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 03:18:25 +0000

According to Goodreads, I read 88 books in 2016. I don’t ever do a great job tracking manga/comic books in Goodreads, so that represents most of my fiction reading. Fiction/SciFi/Mystery books I greatly enjoyed in 2016 include The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin, Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick DeWitt, Uprooted by Naomi Novak, and the […]

Yarn acquisition

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 22:46:13 +0000

I have generally slowed down on yarn shopping because I have so much, but I’ve bought a little bit recently. I got some more Woolmeise! I got 3 regular skeins and one of the more squishy MCN-like skeins. This is now dangerous because now I feel the urge to collect more Wollmeise in a different […]

Knitting Retreat 2016

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 00:25:50 +0000

So this was my second year going to the knitting retreat at Alta. Last year it was very warm and I was able to go on a hike but this happened shortly after the drive up! So it was a good excuse to stay inside and knit! This is my still in progress Walk on […]

Knitterly Updates

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 00:33:18 +0000

Random drive-by blogging knitting updates! This is all stuff that I’ve been working on/doing for the past several months. I started a new project – Walk on the Moon. I’m using three colors of Wollmeise that were in my stash – greyish pink, pink, and lapis lazuli. This is the teeny tiny bit of it […]

Too much purple yarn is never enough

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 00:51:34 +0000

I was delighted when my friend Margene decided to destash, because she set aside some awesome purple yarn for me! That is some incredibly high quality purple (and pink, and reddish pink) yarn there. So excited! Some of it might become….SOCKS! It could happen! My one pair of finished socks accidentally got sent through the […]

January knitting update

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 01:47:53 +0000

I have finished one thing and made good progress on a new project. The thing I finished was a belated holiday gift – it is a sockhead hat made out of 1.25ish skeins of Koigu KPPM from my stash! Hooray for using up stash yarn! The other thing I’ve been working on is The Joker […]

2015 Year in Reading

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 19:11:40 +0000

I need to post about my reading adventures for last year before January gets away from me! I read (or at least managed to track on goodreads) 77 books last year. Highlights include: The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater – So much more creative than most YA fiction out there, and so well-written. Inspector […]

Kicking off the new year with some knitting

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 03:16:06 +0000

I finished my long koigu entrelac scarf of doom! This was six skeins of koigu, I started it way back in April 2013 and finished it Jan 1st! This was very much a background project that I worked on occasionally while knitting other things, and it felt very good to be starting off the new […]

Knitting Retreat fun

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 02:52:12 +0000

I was very excited to be able to go to the Alta knitting retreat for the first time. My knitting buddies have been going to this for years and I’ve always wanted to go but never managed to block off the time before. It has been a long time since I’ve had a solo vacation, […]
