F.O. Gimili Spinning




Project Details:
Well I finished another sport weight yarn. I now have a total of 1044 yards of this yarn. I'm very close to to being able to knit up the sweater I want with this yarn. I might start and see if I need more yarn or not (since I still have another 4 oz left). Thanks Anne for selling me more of this - I so love it!!!

Were you wondering if there was any spinning happening out here?

F.O. Tilted Duster




Yep. FINALLY FINISHED. Blocked and with buttons.

Project Details: 8 skeins of Berroco Peruvia (which the pattern called for) on size 9 needles. If you remember gauge was hard for me to get on this project. I got the fabulous buttons at Village Wools in ABQ (for anyone that is local). I started on August 19 and finished on September 19th. Not bad for a sweater I thought was going to take me forever.

Things I changed in the pattern: I lengthened the sleeves (I have long arms). My row gauge wasn't the same as the pattern so I stopped 10 rows short of what the pattern called for because my measurement was what I wanted. I picked up more stitches around the neck because I wanted something less tight (I hate stuff squeezing my neck). I think it doesn't look too bad and it stays away from my neck the way I wanted it to.

Overall a fun knit with interesting construction. I'd highly recommend it!

Almost There

After a hard weekend push I'm almost done with the Tilted Duster. I just need to weave in loose ends and block it!

RV WIP

Race weekends normally mean a lot of knitting progress. I'll say this and please understand that right now I'm just feeling it - THIS FUCKING SWEATER ....

So what do I mean? Well I'm half way through the bottom of this sweater and for every decrease I increase one extra. It is really taking forever. I feel like I'll never be done!

UFO Domination Continues!

Well all I had to finish on this fall quilt was the binding. I decided to buckle down and knock it out (fall really is on the way).

It ended up being a big king and screams of all things bright in fall!

I swear I'm working! Really. I've started the skirt on the Duster Sweater and I'm working on a pair of socks!
