In which there is a collar

As of yesterday, this is the state of the wurstwarmer. I've got a good chunk done since then, too!


I am also mid-swatch for a cabled cardigan for a friend... Ambitious and slightly unnerving task...

In which I introduce the ski sweater

So I totally goofed on getting proper FO photos of Celes... Oh well, I know it is getting heavy regular use at least!

But this sweater, oh... read on.


My friend's grandmother knit this sweater for his sister, whom it did not fit, so my friend appropriated it for himself.
My friend's family has a daschund.

If you guessed that I am going to make the wee doggie a matching sweater... you guessed right.
I have no doubt the dog will hate me forever, but it's not really for him, is it?

Now, to find a daschund sweater pattern...

Also, if anyone out there has a dinosaur slipper pattern? That would be amazing.

In which something is almost done!

This photo is a few days old, and now I'm nearly done the edging! After having bought a 4th ball of yarn... I knew it was going to be tight, grrrr!

Still have no idea where/how I can block this... it's quite large!

In which there is yet more star trek

Making headway, only about 20 rows shy of being done the first half at this point. Fast and easy! (at least, until I get to the border)

In which there is a toque!

As proof that I am still knitting...

A slouchy toque for a wonderful person!

Sorry for the crummy photos, but I was impatient!

Not exactly sure what will be knit next... that whole time thing...

In which there is Ishbel

Ishbel (I knit the small size stockinette portion, but the large size lace portion)
Ella Merino Lace (the more purple-y photos are more accurate, but it is a purple-to-gray yarn depending on the light)

In which there is divine inspiration

I was minding my own business doing some homework and most likely daydreaming about a project I had promised to make for a co-worker when all of a sudden the clouds parted and I was bathed in a warm light, and I knew what I must do. Shibui. Stripes. Sockhead Hat (yes, another one). All feels like a little bit of something divine.


Oh, and for those curious, I have begun a 365 project. I am keeping it confined to flickr most likely, but feel free to click through and take a gander.

In which I eat well once in a while

Oh, I just had to share today's dinner with you all!

Lamb kebabs, israeli couscous, spicy mango/strawberry/grapefruit salsa, and a green salad, and elderflower pressee over frozen blackberries. Mmmm, delightful!






In which there is progress

The word of the day is stitchdefinition... Yeah, I know.

In which there is a cake

Ishbel-to-be. This is one of those yarns that changes colour drastically depending on the lighting.

In which I try to find a pattern

So, I'm planning on making this into a scarf/kerchief/shawlette project... Anyone care to suggest patterns?

In which there is no knitting

Hey there people!
I know, long time no update, and I don't even have any knitting to show - I'm between projects.
But I have been making just a bit of time lately to play around with my camera at least (in between school and work).





And you may have noticed that I am not a huge fan of posting photos of myself, but it's been a while, so here you go.

In which a project begins anew

Well, here goes another one!
What do you lovely folks think?
Tanis Fiber Arts + Regia Hand-dye Effect, held together.
Pattern is Blackcurrant by Veera Valimaki.


I'm also getting used to the camera a bit more :)

IN which I am very thankful

So, I don't have too much to say.

Laminaria, Harrisville Designs New England Shetland (Loden Blue), 4.0mm for the shoulder are, then 4.5mm for the bulk of the shawl. Photos are taken on a queen size bed - this shawl is LARGE. I love this pattern, I love this yarn (as always), I love this shawl - 7 weeks from start to photos. In the next few days I will be shipping this out to Philadelphia to the absolutely incredibly lovely Andrea, who graciously heeded my plea and gifted(!!!) me the camera which I used for these very photos after my old one died. I am still working out the camera, but maybe Andrea will have some in-use shots for us all once it arrives! Not to belabour the matter, but THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK Andrea!

Just enjoy the photos.
