Great Green KAL Update

(Please note: there are NO affiliate links in this post.) Oh my goodness. By the sixteenth of this month, I began to think that I should gracefully (and fitfully) bow out of the Great Green KAL. Luckily, I did not and as yet I have not. I decided when it came time to pick up …

Currently On My Needles

photo unsplash.com (In addition to working on my green Love Note sweater) I am currently working up the Coffee Shop Wrap.  If you recall, I received the whole kit for Christmas.  The kit came with cotton yarn, but for my first one I am using Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn.  Why?  Because it is still winter …

By day four, I was beginning …

Now You Want To Know About My NaSweKniMo Project, Right?

photo from unsplash.com Yeah. No. It didn't happen. I can't even tell you for certain if I knit anything at all during the month of November. I know I bought another pattern, Ursina, because that is the 'twin' to the Ursa pattern I bought previously (and nope, haven't worked a single one yet.) This month …

NaKniSweMo Update

https://www.instagram.com/p/CHesvb4JYcx/ Nope. No sweater this month.  At least not yet.  Maybe I will start something later this month, but not right now.  I have not been feeling well—which is not an odd thing for me—I just do not have the energy to start something that requires that much attention and thinking. I am working on …
