Frogged Secret Sweater

I’ve made it this far and I’m ripping it all out. I’m not happy with it. This cable doesn’t really feel right for my husband. So, I thought I’d try this Baroque Cable and was in the process of writing it out from the chart, figuring out the abbreviations that work best for me asContinue reading “Frogged Secret Sweater”

Another Monday

Back again to Monday. And what a glorious Monday it is! When I walked into the house this morning, after dropping the kids off at school, it struck me all of a sudden. The silence. The beautiful, uninterrupted quiet. I simply stood there for a moment, one hand on the doorknob, the other drifting downContinue reading “Another Monday”

Another Story Shawl

So I’m making a third version of my Sister Shawls, only this one is not a Sister Shawl, but is definitely for someone amazing.

Sister Shawl: Part II

It’s a bit of a strange feeling to be finishing this up. Especially knowing that I’m going to be packing this up until my sister receives her’s. It’ll be a surprise all over again for me too!

My Husband’s Secret Sweater

I’ve begun working on a sweater for my husband, finally. And then of course he’s having more health issues. We’re not really sure what is going on just yet. He has another MRI later today. Last week I dropped him off at the ER and, since visitors are no longer allowed due to the pandemic,Continue reading “My Husband’s Secret Sweater”

Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished

It definitely came out a bit larger than I had intended, but I did have a lot of fun making it. Once I’m finished with mine, I will write up the story that goes with it. I have until Spring to get it done so that I can send it to my sister for herContinue reading “Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished”
