WIP Round-Up

So in the two months that I’ve been missing from the blog, I’ve had a fun case of startitis. And most are still in the WIP stages.

We’ve got:

- Magpie MKAL. Yeah this guy is from the beginning of the year, and I still have half the clues left to go.

- Hermoine’s Everyday Socks, which I keep messing up on the heel.  I’m not sure if I’m going to keep knitting these or frog.  The heel is just…

Its been too long……

Hi world. You are still there, right? It’s been an insane few months since my last post.

-I started seeing a new doctor, no help there on the migraine front.  Although I can now say I have medical proof I am perfect; she was…

My first graze box. Don’t know how exactly vegan they all are, but they sound yummy, and the cinnamon honey almonds with poppyseed pretzels are pretty good.

NEW PATTERN: Fairy’s Heart

NEW PATTERN: Fairy’s Heart

It’s here! It’s here!

I finally have this pattern all done and ready for you guys! I’m so excited!


May I introduce Fairy’s Heart? A simple garter stitch shawl knit in three colors of DK weight yarn that gradually evolves into garter stitch lace by means of asymmetrical rays of eyelets. Just the sort of thing a fairy might wear on her way to do a bit of shopping for her and her sweetheart, or…

Pattern designing jigsaw puzzle….. Time for math and actually knitting

I might have gone shopping…. good thing since I found awesome patterns for next years classes and I found stitches designs that will will work for what I am designing next!!!

I need help finding lace stitches that kind of look like these super awful sketches….. anybody have any good links to share?

They’re finished!!! Now it needs to not be 100 so I can wear them!

I love it when publishers put pretty things underneath the book jackets

6 projects OTN and what do I do? Start another sock…..

WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! And it’s April! The year is officially a quarter over, and I’m trying to figure out where it went…

I’m working on my Magpie this week, trying desperately to finish this up by this time next week, so I can wear it out and about! And so that I can work on the Magnify MKAL guilt free now that the first clue has been released!

Isn’t it pretty?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the beads!

WIP Wednesday 2.8

Happy Wednesday! March is flying by, and I still have two shawls and an engagement gift to finish! But that’s a good thing, time flying means I’m busy and productive. I like busy only when it is combined with productive.

I haven’t done much knitting on my Maenad shawl, but I love how the yarn is striping with the garter stitch short rows. And I am SOOOOOOO in love with my new Addi Clicks! The…

Happy Wednesday!

I promised you progress shots of my Maenad shawl and my Fairy Lace hat! I remembered!


I love how the shawl is so jewel-toned. I can’t wait to finish it! The hat I love too! Even though the black dye came off onto my needles… Good thing I bought a new needle set! See the shiny metal needles on my Maenad? Those are my brand new Addi Click Lace needles I got from a super nice…
