A day after I finished my handwarmers, I bought a needle and started the Wingspan.  I'm using Knit Picks Chroma in the colorway Mix Tape--I'd seen this one by shastastevens on Ravelry and fell deeply, deeply in love and knew I had to have one for myself.

So far, things are going pretty well.  I've completely finished the first two triangles, and am nearly done with the third--all in a week!  Go me.  I worried at first it would be like "scarf hell" but there's enough moving stitch markers and fun color changes in the yarn that I'm not bored at all.  I actually am sort of loving it--we'll see how I feel when I get to the last triangle!

Only the first two triangles, but you get the idea.

Gettin' stuff done.

This is an amazing feat, but team--I finished another project!


Just some simple cabled hand warmers to go with my cloche.  The pattern is called Blue Monday and is a freebie on Ravelry.  Its super easy to follow and I didn't have to use my brain too much, which is always nice.  I like how they turned out and they'll be lovely and warm and cushy when the weather decides to be cold again, and not 95(F).

Next up, I'm thinking of going for a Wingspan.  I rather like the version with the holes, which I think is referred to as "Angel" (there's a Ravelry page here, and the actual blog post about it is here.)  I fell in love with several versions people have done using Knit Picks Chroma in the Mix Tape colorway, so I decided to do one myself!  Sadly, I don't seem to have the right needle size (of course), so a trip to the LYS is in order.  Shucky darn!

Simply Green


When I started these socks, I expected them to take only a month or so.  They were basic, with 2x2 ribbed leg and a stockinette foot.  How long could it possibly take me, especially using the 2 at a time magic loop method?


Four months and 18 days.

P.S. You'll notice the color of the socks looks different from the post below--my camera is a pain.  The brighter, more saturated colors in the "Kermit" post are more accurate.
