Promises, promises

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Back on July 13 I promised I’d give you more information about the Sevilla design. I can’t believe it’s been more than a week already! Gads. Sorry about that. Here’s the pattern info for you:

Pattern: Sevilla, of my own devising, currently being test knit by Dixie.
Yarn: Fibre-Isle, Kami Bison, 2 hanks in Bleuice.
Needles: Size […]

A few photos

Monday, July 13, 2009

Other than this brief introduction, I’m going to do my best to imitate a photo blog today. Click on the images to make them bigger.


Okay. Can’t resist. You get some description, anyway.
Row 1. The bird had flown full tilt into a sliding glass door. Knocked out cold from the impact. I’m happy to report […]

TNNA report

Friday, June 19, 2009

Dave and I had a fabulous time in Columbus, Ohio for the summer TNNA trade show. We talked to tons of people, fondled lots of fabulous yarn, and managed to find time for some fun along the way.
Getting there
Our flight out of southern California was on time, but early, early, early. A friend came […]

Domus Aurea

Friday, May 29, 2009

Done. Blocked. Photographed. Pattern released. All done. And I love it. I love it more now than I did when I was knitting it. I got bogged down in the middle (low threshold for boredom, very, very low), but once I got past that part there was no stopping me. Just look at it on […]

Nameless shawl photos

Thursday, May 7, 2009

As promised, I have pictures of the finished, blocked shawl for you today. If you have an idea for what this one should be called, please be sure to leave me a comment before the end of the day. The person who comes up with the name I end up using will win a free […]

The Posh shawl is done

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Yes, you heard right. The knitting is done (I stayed up until 1:30 am to do it!), the shawl is blocked, and the pictures have been taken. The pattern needs to be tweaked a bit, then it will be test knit. Then you’ll be able to buy the kit from Posh Yarn. I’ll let you […]

It’s blocking

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

The dress is done. Border knit on, seam grafted, neckline and sleeves finished, ends woven in. And pre-blocking photos. I really need to get a little slip-on or zip up cover made for Nicole. The sheet adds ugly thickness to lacy little things, but you can get the idea anyway. Since none of these pictures […]

On socks and future flowers

Friday, March 6, 2009

The second Línea de la Playa sock is finally finished. It took a while to knit it up, not because it was causing me any trouble—it was a good little sock—but because I used it as my Monday knit night knitting project. You know, when a sock is only knit on once a week progress […]

Can’t believe it’s after noon already!

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

I have planned a great post for you, a recap of this year’s Stitches West fun and yarn and frivolity, but not for today. Today you get finished pictures of the shawl I’ve been working on, In the Summer Shade, a.k.a. The Bee Shawl. Yes, it’s done. Remember how I couldn’t decide what to do […]

Finally felted

Friday, February 20, 2009

First off, I want to thank each and every one of you who came out of lurk-dom to leave me a comment over the last couple of days. I truly appreciate the effort you took. It made my day. Truly.

In fact, I felt so good that I finally felted the clogs I knit back […]
