August 6th, 2007 | Rekindled interest

Sorting through the stash reminded me of various projects I am partway through. I may make them the focus of my summer knitting, after I get one baby hat and sweater done. (That’s imminent–they’re drying, before finishing, and I’ve even bought buttons!) Here’s a blanket you may remember from the winter, if you’ve been reading [...]

July 11th, 2007 | RPW: Knitting!

The Pimlico Shrug has grown. I now have the seams sewn, and several rows of 2×2 and then 3×3 ribbing completed.

If you are interested in adding to this worthy cause, and can send a scarf or two by the end of March, e-mail [...]

March 8th, 2007 | Resurrected UFO

Here is a pile of knitted up pieces in a gorgeous chenille in some jewel-box-type color from Lion Brand I think. This is from about (at a conservative guess) a year back in my knitting history, and has been ready for sewing up for about that long: I knit it, I blocked it, I stacked [...]
