Progress on Several Fronts

First of all, it appears that my lap robe may turn out to be more of a shawl now that I see how far my yarn is going. I probably should have followed my first inclination to knit a couple of more inches before starting the decreases for the rectangle, but I’ll continue on asContinue reading “Progress on Several Fronts”

My Hand-Spun Throw is Taking Shape

I started with two stitches, the way I do with washcloths, and now I have 200 stitches on the needle. I will increase on one side: K3, YO, knit to the end of the row, and decrease on the opposite side: K2, SSK, YO, SSK, knit to the end of the row. This will giveContinue reading “My Hand-Spun Throw is Taking Shape”

Finished Ludlow Shawl

I’ll get another photo after it’s dry. Pinned out it is 72″ across the top edge and 33″ deep from the topContinue reading “Finished Ludlow Shawl”

Time to rip out those rows to fix the mistake, also known as frogging. Rip it. Ribbit. Yeah. Frogging. In anyContinue reading “Frog It!”

Stash Diving Again

Somewhere in all of this stuff there is a ziplock bag with left-over yarn from my knitted socks. I can see it quite plainly in my mind’s eye but as yet I haven’t managed to unearth the blooming thing! I always keep the left-over yarn in case I need to mend a pair of socksContinue reading “Stash Diving Again”

Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts

I finished these last night and I’m wearing them today. Very comfy. It’s a bit humid here today so we are enjoying being indoors with the A/C running. I haven’t looked to see if we have more rain coming our way or not but it wouldn’t surprise me. I went in for PT on myContinue reading “Making Progress On A Couple of Fronts”
