I am going to make a better effort to take some modeled pics of my knits. Since the weather was fantastic this last weekend, I decided to wear my Pink Rusted Root out. BFF was nice enough to take some pics for me. I’m actually going to try to get the Chic Hoodie done so […]

FO Friday!

Yes, my friends, I have finished the second Rusted Root, and I even wore it to work. Unfortunately, I was unable to coerce one of my coworkers to take a pic of me in it, so you’ll have to do with the mannequin shot for now.  I like the way it turned out, and I […]

Because it sure feels like it out there! We’ve been having some rainy, cold weather so far this week. I was able to wear a sweater to work…that’s crazy! So the weekend was good…somehow the Bears managed to win against the Colts. (You know I like both teams, so I’m not sad either way…) BFF […]

So, I got a little ahead of myself and wound some yarn tonight…I decided to wind the Tess yarn for the Cable Down Raglan. It’s ginormous! I took a picture of it, but you couldn’t tell how big it is without something there for scale….this is the yarn with a regular size ball of Pastaza. […]

New Beginnings

Well, folks, I started the new job this week. I have to say that it’s been more eventful than I can imagine…I’ve started taking the train, working high in the sky with a great view (yes, I have windows!), meeting new people, learning new things, and going to see an Oprah taping. Yeah, I got […]

I’m getting the crafty bug…

Sometimes I feel like my weekends are more exhausting than my weeks! Though, I don’t think I’ll every say that I want Monday to get here faster because I want the weekend to end… Side note:I should explain BFF and me. See, him and I dated a while and then we decided to become friends. […]

I’ve been thinking…

Dangerous, I know! But I need to get knitting on something, so I’ve been thinking about what I have and what I like to wear a lot. So, I’ve decided that I think I am going to knit another Rusted Root. I love my black one and wear it all the time. I get so […]

Rusted Root Done!

This was actually a very quick project once I got my act together. I had some gauge issues and some use error, but I finally got it all worked out. I really like the way it turned out. I will probably wear this the way I have it pictured with a floral black and white […]

I told you I would…

…post some knitting. Here is Rusted Root about half done. Well, at least the body is half done. I find I am not knitting on it quite as much as I would like because of some things going on in my life right now. The last thing I need to be thinking about is what […]

Rainy Sunday

Well, Yoda is doing much better! She even had a bath yesterday and smells very nice. I have started working on the Rusted Root again. Originally, I had to rip it twice. Once because I was using the wrong needles, and the second time because I was, um, I don’t know–crazy. It was a bit […]
