Rose Verde

There has been knitting going on around here, in small amounts here and there.  I have to admit, I'm a bit surprised I've been able to get any in at all. My hands are very full, but there is some down time while PB sleeps, or someone else is entertaining her.  I've also mastered knitting, … Continue reading Rose Verde


Day 19

I'm feeling a bit speechless about my Rhinebeck 09 experience this morning.  All I can really come up with are snippets, moments, and snapshots from the weekend to share.

This weekend I cast-on and finished one small project, and rescued a long-languishing work in progress from the pile and finished it too. To be fair, I did take Coraline along to a cookout where she got to be with other … Continue reading Slow and Steady

For the Love of Ishbel

Ishbel turned out to be one of those projects that was impossible to put down.  Once I cast on last Sunday, I was a knitting fiend, putting in some time on a row or pattern repeat whenever possible.  It must have been the perfect storm of yarn and pattern, because both were equally pleasing to … Continue reading For the Love of Ishbel

Weekend Knitting Progress

It was a good weekend for starting and making good progress on new projects.  I love the feeling of excitement when I get interested in a new pattern.  I start dreaming about knitting it, stalking finished objects on Ravelry, imagining what yarns I could make it in... Sometimes this process is satisfying enough that I … Continue reading Weekend Knitting Progress
