Lo scialle della dissolvenza è finito!

Okay, so sadly I don’t speak Italian. I just thought the post about my finished Find Your Fade shawl called for something special. Because it is! I LOVED knitting this pattern. On one hand, so many people have said so many things about this design that I feel like all I …

Unraveled Wednesday: Knit this Sweater, Read this Book

Woohoo for the Tecumseh sweater!! I’m knitting mine with DWJ. Check out Yards of Happiness for details and pics of Dana’s amazing progress, and join Dana’s Ravelry group for lots of great Tecumseh chat. I’m knitting with Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK. It’s the first time I’ve knit with this yarn, …

Caffeinated

Remember six months ago when I finished the Caffeinated shawl? No? Well, I’m not surprised. I didn’t say much about it and didn’t even get around to photographing it until today. Blame it on this crazy year. Despite the delay, I am stoked about this shawl. The minute the pattern came …

In the good things department . . .

Hello, my friends. I’m just popping in to share a quick update on my Find Your Fade shawl. It’s coming along!   We went down to the creek near our house today for a little summertime R and R. We took Django and did a bit of hiking and splashing around …

Bird by Bird

A week or so ago, on a day that wasn’t going so well, I posed a question to the members of a small knitting forum I’m part of. I asked people to share an experience in which knitting had helped them through a difficult time. There were a number of …

Hello, Friends! I’m still here. Still knitting, reading, teaching, doing each next thing. As usual on Wednesdays, I’m rushing to get everything ready for my marathon teaching day on Thursday, but I did want to pop in for Unraveled Wednesday. The log cabin squares continue to be every bit as …
