Brought to you by the letter B

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter B. B is the beginning of a bazillion wonderful things. Like babies! My best knitting friend from Chicago is expecting, so it goes without saying that tiny handknits had to happen. This precious little pullover by Ysolda Teague is called Wee …

Miscellany

Handknit socks. I knit these in 2012. I know because they were from a mystery sock knit along I did that year. They’ve been part of my winter sock rotation ever since, but I’ve been wearing them lately on my walks. They are perfect. The pattern is Chiendent by Yvette …

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, …

Unraveled Wednesday Update

Summer teaching is in full swing, so progress on both the knitting and reading fronts has been slow. My Fade is coming along, though, and what a fun knit! The pattern is easy, but you’ve always got the next color shift to anticipate, so it doesn’t get boring. I’m just …

Unraveled Wednesday

Joining in for Unraveled Wednesdays

Remember the Yarn Along hosted by Ginny Sheller on her blog Small Things? If you do, you’ll know that in March of last year, Ginny decided it was time to move on to other things, and she brought her weekly reading and knitting check-ins to an end. I was sad …

Still Yarning Along . . .

Despite the sad demise of the Yarn Along, knitting and reading continue as always here at Casa Knit Potion. It was cause for celebration when Anne Lamott’s new book arrived on my doorstep the day before yesterday. Here’s the quote from the back cover: I’m not sure I even recognize the ever-presence of …

Yarn Along

I’m racing a storm to get this posted before the power goes out, so I’ll just leave this with no additional commentary other than that I highly recommend both the pattern, Inlet, and the book, Michael Pollan’s Second Nature!     P.S. Doh! I’m a day early!!!! I’ll update tomorrow with …
