  I have had the Blooming Cotton Scarf languishing in my WIP pile since 2009. 2009!!! I would start it, but then have to rip. 400 stitches is a lot. I would always be off somehow. Or I would twist my stitches when joining in the round. So I would rip again. I finally have up for […]

I’m kind of taking this sewing thing seriously. So seriously I bought some fabric to make a coat. Eeek! Who makes a coat?! Um, guess I am. Anyway, the Robson Coat is the newest pattern over at Sewaholic. What’s weird is that I thought to myself that it’s too advanced for me. Then Mood mysteriously […]

OMG! It’s been months! I have been so busy with work and everything else that I totally haven’t found time to blog. But I have been knitting and sewing it up!

Since I decided to start the Ribby Pulli. You have all heard about it incessantly. IT’S FINALLY DONE! Really, it is. See the picture over there on the left? So, I decided to go with the scoop neck. I do think I need to rip out the ribbing and go down several size needles to […]

Craftsy (my new bestest friend) has a coupon for 50% off Market Admission. I printed it out just in case I decide to actually drive out to Schaumburg. Maybe I’ll […]

Damn! I had no idea it’s been a while since I last posted…oops! Anyway, I have been knitting. I have FOs galore. I have, however, not taken any pictures of them or any modeled pictures. I think I’m getting lazy. Remember the ChicKnits Ribby Pulli? I’ve only been working on it since 2007. Well, I […]

Hi, everyone! I hope you like the look of my new blog. There are still some things that need to be changes/updated/etc, but I’m getting there. I think it’s enough done that I can start using it. Not only did I change my look, I’ve changed platforms. I used to be on Typepad, but I’ve […]

To Shawl or Not to Shawl….

My roommate from last year is getting married in February and we are having a shower for her in November. I was wondering if I should knit her a wedding shawl for her to wear at the (anticipated) very cold wedding. I was thinking that I could work on something to give her by her […]
