A Tale of Two Sweaters

I’m finally making some progress on the Secret Sweater. Even with all the chores I’ve been getting done around the house. We have a lot going on right now, so I decided to put most of my knitting away and just focus on two projects. Little does my husband know, this is actually my primaryContinue reading “A Tale of Two Sweaters”

Snow Outside Means Knitting Inside

I have so much to do today and this snow is making me want to just curl up and knit. The area I live in is not known for its snow removal abilities and most people have vehicles that don’t mind the snow. My car, however, hates the cold and gets mad whenever I tryContinue reading “Snow Outside Means Knitting Inside”

Forgetting Sweaters

I keep forgetting to work on my husband’s secret sweater. I’ve been so focused on finishing the shawl that it doesn’t even dawn on me until after he’s home that I’m not any closer to done with it. To be honest, I’m a bit of a scatter brain, but I like to chalk it upContinue reading “Forgetting Sweaters”

The Struggle is Part of the Joy

I’m honestly having a lot of fun knitting these, but at the same time, I wish they were done already. I’m getting sweater fever and would rather be working on the visions in my head. Thankfully, I only have so many needles, so unless I want to put these projects on some scrap yarn, IContinue reading “The Struggle is Part of the Joy”

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 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. I’m using two strands of yarn for this one and am hoping to make it a bit smaller than the last two. This first section turned out beautifully and it wasContinue reading “Another Story Shawl”

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! I meant to sew that little hole up, but I’ve grown attached to it. And the bit whereContinue reading “Sister Shawl: Part II”

Scarf for my Brother

As requested, I’m making my brother the Fourth Doctor Who’s scarf. I looked it up online and found one with a pattern from the BBC. I sketched it down on paper, bought the colors I was missing, and have been having a lot of fun with this. After finishing my Sister Shawl (more on thatContinue reading “Scarf for my Brother”

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”
