An Actual Knitting Post

No, really! I haven’t done a lot of knitting (or spinning, and certainly not crochet) lately.  And by lately, I mean… the last 18 months.  Or thereabouts.  But in the last week or two I’ve picked up a couple of … finish reading “An Actual Knitting Post”

Nearly done!

Just two rows to go on the Gap Year Travels shawl now: I’m planning to finish it and leave it blocking before I go to bed. Yay!

Ap*ply*ing myself

I need an editor to stop me from making horrible puns, don’t I?  But it’s true, today I have been applying myself to plying two bobbins of handspun together.  I haven’t done the whole lot yet, and there won’t be … finish reading “Ap*ply*ing myself”

Stitch by stitch

When I’ve not been out (Tuesdays is the day I volunteer at the library) or on the computer today, I’ve been industriously knitting away on my Travelling Woman shawl.  I’m determined to finish it soon!  I am a little worried … finish reading “Stitch by stitch”

WIP Blitz

The last, oh, while, I’ve been feeling quite determined to finish off all the knitting projects I have sitting around partly done.  Which is good!  Right?  Right.  It feels like I’ve done more knitting this year than I actually have … finish reading “WIP Blitz”

Y is for Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn!

The hot weather is continuing, and now it’s got to the point where it’s really too hot to sleep at night.  Not so much fun.  Especially with a cat who’s determined to plaster himself against you!  Ugh.  I didn’t even … finish reading “Y is for Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn!”

T is for Tan (or lack thereof)

I spent most of today on the beach, which was marvellous – the weather is warm and sunny, but with enough of a breeze to keep it comfortable.  I sat and knitted, listened to music for some of the time, … finish reading “T is for Tan (or lack thereof)”

P is for Projects

I had a sudden bout of startitis today (the urge to cast on new knitting projects) but I’ve managed to restrain myself!  Why did I do that?  Well, for the last… oh, good while, I’ve been resolved to finish the … finish reading “P is for Projects”

K is for Knitting in Public

So, today was World Wide Knit in Public Day (or at least, the start of WWKIP week) for 2010.  We had a little meet up and knit in Princes Park in Eastbourne to mark the event – there were just … finish reading “K is for Knitting in Public”

J is for Jumper

I’m not very good at knitting jumpers and cardigans.  Or at least, I’ve knitted them, but them completely failed to sew them up in two cases, and in other cases I’ve just not got very far on the knitting itself.  … finish reading “J is for Jumper”

A is for Ambition

I’ve decided that a good way to keep myself going with the daily posting is to do the meme / exercise that I’ve seen on some other blogs, and do a letter of the alphabet each day.  Obviously that leaves … finish reading “A is for Ambition”

And I’m back again

Oh dear, I haven’t posted for far too long!  A billionty years!!  Or to be more precise, just over five months.  Whoops!  I don’t know where the time’s gone to.  I’ve obviously been busy doing… stuff.  Yeah, that’ll be it. … finish reading “And I’m back again”

Let There Be Glove

My “Damson Gloves” [Ravlink] are my current main knitting work in progress.  I have no gloves, you see!  I lost mine a couple of years ago, and it seemed silly to buy new ones when I could make some, so … finish reading “Let There Be Glove”

31: What to knit?

I was knitting on those socks I posted about earlier, but it’s just occurred to me that I could knit my February Lady Sweater instead… it’s been languishing for ages, and I’m sure it won’t take long once I sit … finish reading “31: What to knit?”

12: What I’ve been knitting

I’ve been doing a bit of knitting… although I need to go and cook soon.  Anyway, these are what I’m working on right now: I’m a little worried I won’t have enough yarn for two whole socks, which is why … finish reading “12: What I’ve been knitting”
