Aibrean is finished. It still needs a vigorous washing and an aggressive blocking to soften the linen, but I think it will be fine. Do you see the three sleeves? No? Good. I knit three. The first was way too wide, so I aggressively narrowed the next two, and they... Continue reading

Hi, My Friends. Freddy here. Have you missed me? I've missed being in this space. Remember in the good old days when Monday was my day? Oh, well. Maybe I'll make Tuesday my day. I have a very good excuse for my absence. I've been sick. I had pancreatitis. I... Continue reading

It's spring...isn't it? Snow is predicted tonight, but I'm sure they don't really mean it. I put away all my wintery winter clothes...got out what passed for transitional spring clothes last year, and pretty much wonder what I really wore, since everything looks blah this year. So I grabbed the... Continue reading

I wish I remember where I read to roll that plate into a ball. You are the second person who said to knit right from the plate and that makes so much sense!! I’m going to knit the contrast plate without rolling!! Thanks for confirming. Sent from my iPhone

really?!? Thanks for the tip. I read somewhere to roll it, but just pulling makes more sense. Rolling puts additional strain on that fiber. I’ll try it when I do the colorwork around the yoke!!!

A long lost friend. Rusty by Steinunn Birna Gudjonsdottir has been shuffled around in the 'yarn closet' for what seems like years (but since I failed to input a start date in Ravelry, I guess we'll never know how many).

I'm feeling much better, thank you very much. I was a very, very sick little boy. I was listless. I didn't eat. I threw up. I slept round the clock. I didn't jump on any furniture. I didn't even eat my poop. All my usual symptoms when Mommy goes out... Continue reading
