in Glam Knits - Texturized Tweed Coat

I told you that I finished the Tweedy Coat, and now I owe some pictures. I really like the pattern of the fabric for the body. I could see that being a cute pullover, too. There are a lot of buttons on this thing, too. I think the buttons actually cost more than the yarn! […]

Well, folks, I know I have said it before, but I'm back! I am now working from home, so no long commutes. I will be able to knit, take pictures, and even update this thing more regularly. Shocking, I know! Want more shock? I finished a sweater! OMG! It's the Tweedy Cost, and it's drying […]

I have been working on knitting the second sleeve of the tweedy coat so that I can get it done and off my plate. I’ve actually knit it about 3 times now! I keep messing up the split, and have to keep ripping back. I have no idea what is wrong with me. The real […]

Knitting Recap

in Corona, Glam Knits - Texturized Tweed Coat

Well, I can't very well start back up knitting and blogging if I don't know where I was when I left off, can I? Ok, the big project I was working on is the Tweedy Coat. After I looked back, I have made some progress, but not as much as I normally would have. As […]

Moving right along

Recently, my dance card has freed up, thus I have more free time on my hands, so I've been working on the Tweedy Coat. Here is the collar portion all completed. I did not do the full number of repeats as indicated in the pattern. I am a little concerned about having enough yarn to […]

If you've gotten through the San Francisco breakdown, you soon realized that I did zero knitting while there. That doesn't mean I haven't been knitting while I've been off work for 10 days (ahhh). I have been feverishly working on the Tweed Coat. I want to get this sucker done so I can start on […]

So, that means fall is here! Man, I love fall. Not just because sweaters can start to be worn (not really yet since it is still in the 70s), but because fall fashion is just so much neater. For example, people wear more clothes, so they tend to look better…I like less skin! I'm actually […]

Well, the hand is healing. I don't have to do physical therapy, but I figured knitting would be a good way to get some dexterity back into the fingers. I'm still "broken", but I'm allowed to do things. Just not contact sports. But sky diving should be ok…no contact there, right? So, I decided that […]

Hey, there! I hope everyone enjoyed a day off for Memorial Day and had wonderful weather. We've been having some strange weather lately. It was a gorgeous weekend, but tonight is rainy and cooler. Anyway, you didn't come here to read about the weather! I actually got off my lazy butt and took some pictures […]

New Beginnings

in Glam Knits - Texturized Tweed Coat

Yeah, yeah, I seem to have new beginnings a lot. But, why not, right? Anyway, here is the beginnings of my Texturized Tweed Coat from Stefanie Japel's Glam Knits: 25 Designs For Luxe Yarns . I really like the texture, and it's easy to do on the train. I think it's looking good so far, […]
