Sick Day

No photo today, because I spent yesterday home sick and got absolutely no knitting done. Instead I;


  • took a nap
  • took a bath and listened to a podcast
  • ate a vegetable
  • made some hot honey lemon water and read a book
  • took another nap
  • ate some pretzels
  • read about the history of vaccines
  • went to bed early
Apparently that was the perfect mix to get me back on my feet for today!

Getting There


Happy Monday! This weekend ended up being quite a bit busier than I planned, but I still got a nice big chunk of this top knit up. I've got two more repeats to go on the back, and then it just needs seams, a collar, and blocking. Each repeat takes around an hour to knit, so I'm feeling pretty good about getting this finished. The pattern is with my tech editor now, so look to see this pattern coming out sometime next week!

I also managed to read quite a bit this weekend, despite running around all the time. By the time I got home last night, I was too tired to turn on Netflix, so I finished a couple of library books that have been languishing in my TBR pile. I'm notorious for checking out lots of books and never returning them on time, so it felt really good to get a few finished and returned.

I don't have anything planned for tonight other than cooking up some freezer meals and hopefully getting another library book finished. It's supposed to be pretty cold and rainy the next couple of days, but it should clear up by the middle of the week, and I'm hoping to get over to my community garden plot to get some stuff planted before the weekend.

Patterns and Recitals and Gardens, Oh My!


This top is growing, and I'm hoping to get a big chunk of the rest knit up this weekend. I don't have anything scheduled for tonight, so my plan is to cozy up in my chair, throw on some Doctor Who, and whack out as many rows as possible. I've blocked off tomorrow as a pattern writing day, but if the writing and formatting goes quickly, I can get some more knitting done tomorrow afternoon.

The recital for the dance studio I help out with costuming for is tomorrow night, and I'm really looking forward to seeing some of the dances. Two of my favorite instructors are leaving this year, so I definitely want to help celebrate the work they've done with their classes this year.

Sunday I have my first meeting for the community garden, and I'll get assigned my plot space. I'm so excited to get started growing things—I always hated helping my mum in the garden when I was growing up, but I definitely see the appeal of cheap vegetables now, and after getting so interested in houseplants over the past year, I really love the rush of seeing something that I'm responsible for grow and flourish!

On a Wednesday


I can't believe it's already Wednesday. Tonight I have my last choir rehearsal before the summer, and tomorrow night we're singing the national anthem at the opening ceremony for the Special Olympics. My dance class ended last week, and with choir ending it feels like I should be getting lots of free time now—alas, it's only for a couple weeks: summer theater rehearsals start at the beginning of June.

I'm making slow progress on my new top, but I haven't been able to knit during my lunch breaks the past couple of days. Hopefully I'll be able to get some good knitting time in tonight. I'm hoping to have the pattern ready to send to my tech editor this weekend, even if the sample's not quite done.

Last night I assembled the aquarium stand for my new fish tank, and I'm hoping to get the tank itself out of my car and cleaned up this weekend. I already have some aquarium plants sitting on my counter, waiting for their new home, and I'm really excited to get the system set up and ready for my goldfish in a couple more weeks!

Weekending


As I expected, it was a pretty busy weekend, but I made it through. I actually made a surprising amount of progress on the back of this top, despite having practically no time to work on it. I brought it to my brother's graduation party just in case, but by the time we had everything set up, I just wanted to drink coffee and hide with Mystic, so that's what I did. By the time the parties and graduation were over, I was exhausted, so I drew a bath and watched The Mummy (Boris Karloff, not Brendan Fraser) (Side note: getting a portable dvd player for the bathroom was the best decision I ever made, and I heartily recommend it).

We still have tons of food left from the party, and every time I swing by Mum's house, she gives me more to take home with me. I made a quiche last night using leftover Canadian bacon, and lunches this week are going to be open turkey sandwiches with some of the two pounds of turkey we have leftover.

Yesterday I had Mum come over for coffee, and it was great to spend a couple of hours with her. I see her pretty much every day, but there's still something really special about just the two of us sitting down together. I'm so lucky to have the mother I do, and I'm so glad that we're this close. She's really the best mom I could imagine having, and I'm so glad she's mine.

Moving On and Busy Weekends


If you're wondering if this is the newly-cast-on back for my new top, you are correct! I'm pleased with the progress I've made this week, and hopefully I'll be able to get into a regular knitting rhythm after this weekend.

We're having a brunch for my brother's graduation party, so tonight I'm going to be making a couple of coffee cakes to have on offer. I've also unfortunately let my housekeeping get away from me, and I should probably try to clean some tonight. There's a large sticky patch on one of my fridge shelves from I don't even know what, and that probably needs to get taken care of.

Tomorrow's going to be crazy busy, between my brother's graduation party and having to stop by some of my friends' kids' graduation parties, but I've managed to keep Sunday mostly open for rest and recovery.

Catching Up


Oh man, it feels like it's been forever since I've sat down to have a proper chat with you all! There's been so much going on—I went to visit my best friends in Minneapolis a couple weeks ago, I had auditions for the summer musical, I came down with staph, I had to get a filling this week, and my brother is graduating from high school this weekend! No wonder I've been feeling stretched a bit thin lately!

I actually haven't knit much the past couple of weeks. It feels a bit too convenient to blame my crazy schedule, but I think that's the reality. There's just been so much going on that when I have some time to just sit, I don't feel up to knitting. I'm hoping this feeling passes soon—I had my brother's last high school concert last night, and I managed to get a few sweater rows knit during that, so hopefully my knitting's going back on the uptick.

As you can see, I'm very close to finishing the front of this new top sample. I'd hoped to be further along by now, but like I said, life's been crazy. I just have this little bit left on the left upper front, and of course the neck decreases mean that every row is just a bit shorter. I'm still tickled pink by how this is knitting up, and it's almost making me ready for summer!

Mission Hill


My dream throughout most of high school was to move out and live in the Mission Hill neighborhood in Boston. It’s a small, historic neighborhood popular with students, and living there and going to college in Boston was the best future I could dream of for myself. Of course, life turned out a bit differently, but I still love the character of Mission Hill, and I visit there every time I’m back in Boston.


Mission Hill has a deep brim, perfect for warding off cold New England winds, and features a wide garter rib pattern.


Mission Hill is 20% off on Ravelry through Thursday, May 9th, with code BOSTON

Aust Cliff


Aust Cliff is a gorgeous fossil site in South Gloucestershire, England. It’s made up of layers of red and green mudstone, alabaster, limestone, and black shale, and is especially known for the numerous samples of Triassic-age insects found there.


The Aust Cliff hat is meant to work with hand-dyed yarns to evoke the color layers of its namesake, and the four-row stitch pattern is easy to memorize, making this a perfect choice for a portable project.


Aust Cliff is now available on Ravelry, and is 20% off through Friday with code CLIFFS.

Walking


It's finally gotten nice enough this month that I can start walking to work more, and I'm really glad to be back in that rhythm. Soon it will be too hot to walk, so I'm appreciating being able to do so while I can. I usually cut through the park and take this dirt access path, which is a bit more forgiving on my feet and knees than pavement.

Tomorrow I leave to visit my best friends in the cities. It's been almost two years since I've seen them, and I'm really looking forward to it. I had hoped to get the front of this top sample finished before I leave, but given that I haven't started packing yet, that's not going to happen. I have a list of things I want to get cleaned in my apartment before I leave, so tonight's going to be pretty busy for me.

I also just put through a bunch of renewal requests on my stack of library books. I'm reading too many at the same time, again, and none of them are going to get finished this week—I know better than to think I'll sit down and read a book while I'm at my friends' house, it never happens!

Busyness


It's been a very busy week for me, and I feel like I barely have time to breathe before I'll need to start getting ready to go visit my friends later this week. Things that have been helping me relax are:

-knitting this top

-housesitting for my friend, who's new puppy is a whirlwind of energy

-coffee. so. much. coffee.

-watching my plants turn to reach toward the light

-romance novellas

I hope you all have had a good week, and are finding things to keep you grounded if you've also been crazy busy!

Weekending and New Tops


I hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was pretty much lazy for me—I went and picked up a new-to-me aquarium from a friend in the afternoon, but otherwise just napped and read all day. Yesterday, though, I did a bunch of cleaning, cooking, and pattern writing. I have two new hat patterns written up and ready to go to my tech editor as soon as I can finish the yardage measurements, so be sure to keep an eye out for those in the coming weeks (if you sign up for my newsletter you can find out right away when the patterns are available, plus get a shiny special discount code).

I seem to be over my hat kick for now, but I have a few more waiting in the wings in case I get bitten by the hat bug again. My sweater sample is still going well, but it's more suited to evening knitting than to being carted around in my purse, so I cast on a new, more portable, top. I love the tweedy pink of this yarn, and I've had this design idea floating around in my head and sketchbook since last summer. It's a really enjoyable knit so far, and I'm looking forward to adding it to my summer wardrobe.

A Little Baby Sweater


My new second cousin arrived yesterday, and from the pictures I've seen, he's absolutely perfect. Clearly I didn't get his sweater mailed off before his arrival, but I'm letting that go. It took several days for me to actually make myself sew the buttons on this (There are only four buttons! It should not have taken me a week to sew them on!), but now it's blocked and buttoned and ready to go in the mail tomorrow.

I kind of had to wing big parts of this sweater (really, it's more of a vest, but it's going to be spring soon, so he doesn't really need sleeves), but that was all my fault. I didn't have the right needle size, so I used a larger one, and I had to fudge some repeats to avoid making the sweater too long or the armscyes too deep. I'm really pleased with how it came out, and I hope it'll get plenty of wear this year.

Finished: Filled With Secrets


I finally caught up on FO pics last night, and I'm so excited to finally be able to write about this sweater. I mean, look at it! It's adorable! I've had the idea of a cropped version of this sweater floating around in my head for a while, and back in December, I cast on.


I went back and forth a few times about extending the colorwork throughout the sweater body, but I'm glad I did. Not only does it look FANTASTIC, but I also ended up using all but a few yards of my main yarn, even with these mods.


The relevant details: I knit my exact bust size, repeated charts 2 and 1 after dividing the sleeves from the body, and did the bottom ribbing right after the repeat of chart 1. The body ended up being about nine inches from the underarm, which is just a smidge shorter than what I'd hoped, but it's definitely still wearable. I started decreasing for the sleeves right away, to keep them fitted, and I threw in a repeat of chart 1 on each one before the ribbing.


I'm so pleased with how this came out, and I'm really looking forward to we
aring it! I was worried that I'd put off photographing it for too long, and that it was going to be too warm for a wool pullover, but we're due for an April winter storm tonight, so I might just get to wear it yet this week!

Lazy Weekends and Instant Gratification


I got into a bit of a funk over the weekend and needed some instant gratification, so now I appear to be on a bit of a hat kick. I already have one new hat finished, and I'm hoping to get the pattern sent to my tech editor tonight, and I'm almost finished the brim of this hat. It's taking a while, because I want a folded brim on this hat, for extra cozy factor, which means an extra three inches or so of knitting.

This weekend was pretty uneventful. Saturday ended up being a total lazy day—I managed to get two loads of laundry finished, but otherwise I was just napping and reading. Yesterday I tried making granola, but I burned it. I might try again tonight. I had a whole list of things I wanted to get done over the weekend, but apparently my brain just needed a couple days off.

Some New Friends


One of my hobbies is collecting and caring for houseplants, and this week I scored two new beauties. Wednesday afternoon I was running some errands and I had to swing by my property management company, and there were these two big rubber plants in the foyer. I've been wanting a rubber plant for a while, and these ones were looking really sad. One of the realtors popped her head out from her office and said that they were free, as the team was sick of taking care of them.

They were both droopy and bone dry, and I ended up pulling off quite a bit of dead material from them. One of them is already starting to perk up, but they're both going to need plenty of tlc for the next few weeks. I gave them each half a gallon of water on Wednesday and again yesterday, and the soil is still rock hard and dry after the first half inch or so. I'm also working on getting the humidity in the room they're in right now up to hopefully help as well.

I'm really excited to have these two plants in my collection. I love big plants, but most of mine are small to mid-size, so these rubber trees really make a statement. Right now they're in my studio, and I think I like them there, but we'll see how they do in that light.

Wednesdaying


I was so excited to cast on this shawl back in January, and then it got set aside while I worked on finishing up some other stuff. I picked it back up this week after binding off the baby sweater and I'm really loving working on it again. I love these colors so much, and I can't wait to get to the lace section.

Handbell Choir has started up again for the spring, so I'm back to long Wednesdays of back-to-back  rehearsals after work. We're working on some great music though, and I really enjoy being back with my group. 

My kitchen is kind of a mess right now—my sink wasn't draining this weekend, and there's still a pile of dishes I need to catch up on. It's not going to get done tonight, unfortunately, since I'll be out so late and have such a long day. I'm generally not too concerned with housekeeping, but I have pretty much no counter space left right now!

Sweaters and Sweaters


Hiya, kittens! I hope you all had a good weekend. I finished the baby sweater for my cousin's new sprout—all it needs now is a blocking and buttons, and then it'll go right into the mail so it's ready for the little guy when he comes.

I also cranked out a bunch of work on my new sweater sample and made it though a quarter of the body. My mum came over yesterday and took this awesome picture of the sweater in progress, and I'm really hoping to hit the halfway point on the body this week. I don't know how realistic that goal is, though—it turns out fingering-weight sweaters take a while to knit.

On Saturday I tried a new recipe and made chickpea nuggets. They're good, but I don't know how often I'll make them going forward. They were a bit more labor-intensive than I'd like, and they made a bit of a mess. They're also made almost entirely in the food processor, so I can't really make a big batch all at once. It was fun to try something new, though, and I still have some nuggets left for a couple of dinners this week.

Weekend Planning


Who's ready for the weekend? I know I am, for sure. The baby sweater is progressing along nicely, and if I don't get it finished this weekend, it'll at least be pretty darn close. It took all of five minutes to finish that first front after I bound off for the sleeves, so I'm sure I can sneeze out the rest of the body tonight, no problem.

This weekend I'm hoping to get some cooking done—I've been meaning to make gluten free chicken nuggets to keep in my freezer for a while, and I'd really like to get that done. I'm also planning to go to Captain Marvel tomorrow, which I'm super excited for. My current sweater sample is perfect cinema knitting, so hopefully I'll get a nice chunk of that knit up, too.

What about you all? Any fun plans for the weekend?

Knitting for a Sprout


I didn't really knit much during my conference or during the flights, which was very surprising. Now that I'm home, I'm feeling the crunch to get my cousin's baby sweater knit—I want it to arrive before the little sprout does, and I need to allow for a few days in the mail, so I've been hard at work the past couple days.

I went back and forth a few times trying to choose a pattern. I pulled these yarns from my stash a couple of months ago, and when I found Purl Soho's Little Baby Sweater before I left for my conference, I knew it'd be perfect. 

I'd really love to get this finished by the weekend, but I don't know if that's an unreasonable expectation. This is currently both my lunch knitting and my evening project, and that's making for some pretty decent progress on the body, so hopefully I'll have something vaguely sweater-shaped in the next few days.

Home Again, With Socks

Hello, friends! I am so glad to be back home, and I missed you all terribly while I was away. I had a great time at my library conference. I went to some great sessions and met some really cool people, and I really can't wait to go to another one.

I got back late Thursday night, and the past three days have been pretty much recovery-focused. I slept a lot, talked to my plants, went to visit my mom and snuggle the dogs, and knit. I admit, it feels a little weird to be jumping back into my regular routine, but I'm sure I'll settle in just fine.


I do have a bit of a backlog of finished knits that I need to share, but I'm a bit behind on photographing them. Now that the sun is staying out until later in the evening, I'm hoping I can catch up. But! I do have pictures of my Ex Nine socks that I knit for the Juntos KAL and finished just before I left for Florida.

I really love how these came out—I thought that this yarn would be perfect for this garter and slipped-stitch pattern, and I was right! I really enjoyed knitting these, and the finished socks are so squishy and cozy. I knit them as written, although the toe pocket is a bit long and narrow for my foot. If I knit these again, I'll almost certainly sub in my regular toe. I honestly don't know why I didn't do that this time, but for whatever reason I decided to actually follow the pattern. They're definitely still wearable, and I was definitely overdue for a new pair of socks for myself!

Travel Planning


I did manage to finish my Ex Nine socks last night, which I am incredibly thrilled about. I can't wait to get actual daylight pictures of them and tell you all about them, but I don't think that's going to happen until I'm back from my library conference. The blog's going dark next week (I mean, it'll still be here, and you can reread old favorites, if you have them, but I'm not going to be writing anything new) and I'm going to miss you all.

One of the things I was really worried about for this trip was my knitting. I needed something really simple, but that would last through the flights, the conference, and a six-hour layover on my way home. Fortunately, one of my planned sweater designs for this year fit the bill exactly. It's fingering weight, a buttload of garter stitch, and it's only just been cast on, and even I don't think I can knit an entire fingering-weight sweater in four days.

But, just in case, I'm bringing something for my cousin's impending baby, too.

Pocketful of Posies

Hello, friends! I've had this shawl percolating in my head for over two years, and I'm so thrilled to finally be ready to put it out into the world.


Pocketful of Posies was directly inspired by The Dyeing Arts’ “Pansy Lane” colorway. I wanted a shawl that evoked woodland wanderings, flower-lined pathways, and small bunches of flowers stashed wherever you can fit them.


Pocketful of Posies is worked sideways on the bias. The generously-sized shawl features large lace sections and a picot bind off.


Lace pattern has both charted and written instructions.

Socks and Prep


Well, after a sprint this weekend, I'm sitting with one finished sock and have the cuff and the start of the leg on the second. I'm feeling pretty good about being able to finish these this week, and I'm looking forward to having a new pair of socks for myself.

I feel like this week is going to be a lot of catching up and trying to get ahead on things. Next week I'm going to Florida for a library conference, and there's some stuff I want to get done before that so I can enjoy the trip. I want to get knitting projects for the flight started before I leave, and my return trip has a six-hour layover, so I want to be sure I bring plenty of stuff to keep me occupied during that time!

Socking Along


Why, hello, socks! It's been a hot minute since I last worked on these guys, and it's really nice to be back to knitting on them. I finished my shawl sample yesterday, and my main goal for the next week is to crank out my Ex Nine Socks for the Juntos KAL. I usually let socks languish for a while and take my time to knit them, but I'm pretty confident that I can power through these by the time the KAL ends.

It's finally starting to warm up a little bit, but snow has come along with the milder weather. We're supposed to get freezing rain tomorrow, so I'm not planning on leaving my apartment under any circumstances. I'd been planning on spending the weekend doing some pattern writing, but I managed to get all caught up last night, so now my plans are limited to coffee and sock knitting and not too much else.

On a Monday


I can't believe it's already Monday. I spent a large part of Saturday just recovering from driving three and a half hours on Friday night after working all day, but I now have an aquarium and I'll be able to start looking for something to put it on. I also spent a big chunk of Saturday baking a cake, as Anemone visited this weekend and we celebrated her birthday early. The cake was well-received, and I still have a couple of pieces for myself in my fridge.

I finished the lace section of this shawl sample, and I'm on the final stretch of stockinette before the picot bind-off. I'm hoping I can finish the shawl this week, which might be a bit of a stretch, but I'd love to get the pattern sent to my tech editor this weekend.

It's spring break at the university, so campus is dead quiet right now. It's still going to be a bit of a busy week for me, but I'm definitely going to try and enjoy the quiet while it lasts. I still have a stack of dance costume alterations to tackle, and I have a meeting for a potential new project tomorrow night, so I'm definitely not going to get bored while all the students are gone!

**Also, I'm having a sale on all my Malabrigo patterns this week for Malabrigo March 2019. Everything in this bundle is 20% off through Saturday with code MALMARCH19.**

A Growing Shawl


Well, it is Friday, again, and it's snowing. Hopefully the snow will stop by noon; I have to drive out into the country to pick up an aquarium tonight, and I'd love to not have to reschedule due to bad roads.

I've been working steadily on this shawl this week, and I'm past the halfway point now. It's already huge, and I think this is going to be a great, versatile shawl—light enough for a little something extra on my shoulders, but big enough to squish into a super warm layer under my coat. I kind of feel like I'm in a bit of a knitting black hole right now, but I know I'm adding repeats and using up yarn, so hopefully it'll all come together soon.

I have some pattern writing to work on this weekend. I want to type up the written instructions for this shawl and another shawl, and I have a couple of swatches that I need to measure and work out some math for so I can get my next sweater sample cast on this month.

Weekending


Happy Monday, Kittens! I hope you all had a good weekend. My Saturday was pretty busy—I started out with a fitting at the dance studio, and then it was straight to the show choir competition for the rest of the day—but yesterday was pretty restful. I went to the university choir concert in the afternoon, and then caught up with a friend for a little bit, which was really nice.

It's been such a long time since I've touched these socks—and it's been even longer since I shared them with you—so I decided to share them today in the hopes of shaming myself into working on them some more. I'm knitting these for the Juntos KAL, which ends March 15th, so I'm not quite in the danger zone of not finishing on time yet, but I will be soon if I don't get a move on. Considering that I've abandoned all hope of finishing my second Old Harry anytime soon, it'd be nice to finish at least one KAL on time this year.

Growing Lace


Look at all that lace! This has been my evening knitting project this week, and I've definitely made a lot of progress. There's still tons of shawl to go, but I'm really enjoying watching this grow, and I know it's going to be beautiful when it's finished. I'm really struggling to see the lace pattern now, but I know it'll block out and look great.

We're supposed to have a show choir competition here in town tomorrow, but we also might be getting a bunch of snow. I hope the competition isn't cancelled, but I also don't want a couple hundred high school students and all their families to get snowed in here in town, so we'll see how that plays out.

This week I got a stack of alterations done on dance costumes, and I have one more quick fitting at the studio scheduled for tomorrow morning. Right now everything in my studio is covered in glitter from some tutus that had to be taken in, which I know would frustrate plenty of people (I, however, love glitter, and I think it's fantastic). My studio was already a mess before I brought this pile of costumes home to work on, and I'm looking forward to getting them out so I can maybe tidy up a bit and make that room more functional again.

A Sweater and Snow


I figured out the trick to making progress on this sweater, and it turns out I just have to actually knit it. Wild, I know, but it's amazing how much more body I have since I've been actively working on this again. I'm about halfway through the lower body increases, and it's really starting to look like a functional garment. I don't think I'm going to finish this by the time the Wayward KAL ends on February 28th, since I still have both sleeves to go, but that's all right—there's still plenty of winter left to enjoy this once it's done!

It's been a pretty quiet week here. I went to my mum's last night for dinner—ranch chicken, baked potatoes, and spinach and mushrooms—and then overnight we got a bunch of snow. The snow is currently deeper than the tops of my boots, and my jeans are soaked right now.

I'm currently feeling a little bit overwhelmed by my current WIPs. I have a bunch of things on the needles that I'd like to finish, and I'm currently juggling three or four pattern samples, and it just all feels like a lot. I think I might take the next couple of weeks to just buckle down and get some things finished, but we'll see what happens.

Jeri


I love easy-to-wear cardigans in simple shapes, and Jeri fits the bill exactly. Featuring a boxy, textured body with fitted sleeves, Jeri is equal parts classic and modern and is easy to wear as well as enjoyable to knit.


Jeri is worked seamlessly from the top-down with long fitted drop sleeves. The texture pattern on the body is an easily-memorized two-row repeat.
