Slight Delay

I experienced a slight delay getting started with my socks. In my last post, “Getting There – Slowly”, I mentioned that I had everything together to get started. It was actually too late for me to start when I finished on the computer that night so I got everything out the next evening. It was… Continue reading Slight Delay

Getting There – Slowly!

There seems to be a lot to get done and catch up on, but I think I am getting there – slowly. The big news is that I have finished the second coffee cozy, the one I actually started first. (See “Production Line” for a photo of the first one finished.) I have taken photos… Continue reading Getting There – Slowly!

Production Line

I feel like I’ve started a bit of a production line for dishcloths / washcloths. The photo above was taken yesterday morning before they were wrapped up as part of two separate parcels and posted away. Since then I have finished another one and started on the next. You should be able to count eight… Continue reading Production Line

Dishcloths Galore

I am starting to get dishcloths galore! I have decided to include dishcloths / washcloths in a number of Christmas presents this year. The ones that need to be posted to Melbourne are finished, which is a relief. They can be posted on Monday. In the photo at the top you can see the five… Continue reading Dishcloths Galore

Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions

Hokitika Set Is Finished

My Hokitika set is finished! Actually, I finished it on Saturday but have only got around to taking photos this afternoon (Monday). I am really pleased with how it has all turned out, but the mittens followed the same construction path as the hat. The pattern I used for the fingerless mittens was a plain… Continue reading Hokitika Set Is Finished

So – There Was A Wool Sale …

Last month (August) was the tenth anniversary of a knitting event called “KAN”, or Knit August Nights. SKEINZ had a wool sale, as they usually do, to help celebrate. It was very tempting but I managed to hold off until the very last week of it. They had some lovely yarns and some very good… Continue reading So – There Was A Wool Sale …

Finished Just In Time!

I’ve finished the little pink baby set, and I literally finished just in time. It turned out that my sister was down for the weekend and I asked her if she could take the set back with her. I finished putting on the last button five minutes before she arrived to pick it up! Fortunately… Continue reading Finished Just In Time!

Moving Forward

It may not be full steam ahead, but I am moving forward. In January 2018 I published the post “Changes Afoot”. I wrote this after changing to WordPress as my hosting provider. The change was actually made in December 2017, so it is not too far off two years ago. When I changed over I… Continue reading Moving Forward

In The Pink Again

It’s been a while but I’m knitting pink baby clothes again. My niece’s new daughter is over two weeks old already, having been born over three weeks early, but I’m hoping to get a few things knitted quickly enough that she won’t out grow them too soon. I’ve chosen a set from a book I’ve… Continue reading In The Pink Again
