Earlier on in the month, I spoke about joining two year-long projects. One involved doing a little bit of embroidery every day, and this is the other one. It's called Sew My Style, and the wizardly organizers have chosen one... Continue reading

I'm in the middle. With a person on my left and on my right. Anyone else remember that song? I can't remember where from, but it's been going through my head today. I am still in the possession of the... Continue reading

Hullo to you all! It's been ages. I have missed you so. I am one of those who was overwhelmed by 2016 completely. My mom was ill, but is happily on the mend. I spent a lot of time on... Continue reading

I love blocking the things that I knit. It surprises me when I hear about knitters who hate it. There is a lovely alchemy that happens for me at the end of a project. You finally cast off. Woo hoo.... Continue reading

What is it about knitting sleeves? There is a kind of rhythm to knitting a sweater. Usually you start off with the body. There are things to do. You can see how your project is developing row by row. And... Continue reading
