Now that we're well into February, I thought I better update what was on, then off the needles in January. First of all, I finished the Abalone cardigan for a friend, an Alice Starmore design knit with the original Campion... Continue reading
Thank you everyone! I hope you had; or are having a wonderful New Year!

When it was August, I decided to knit hats instead of sweaters since it's always a bit hot to hold a large sweater on my lap. I thought that hats would be nice and small and wouldn't contribute to making... Continue reading
Thank you everyone! I should be getting lots of wear out of it, but it's been so bitterly cold that I've been wearing my really heavy sweaters.

Since I haven't written a blog since March, there is a lot of knitting news to catch up on. After finishing Rheingold, I wanted to focus on Angels, a cardigan design by Jade Starmore which I purchased from Virtual Yarns.... Continue reading

During this local winter of massive snowfalls... about 130+ inches here so far, I have been getting a lot of knitting done. Not a lot of blogging done though. I find with Ravelry fulfilling my needs of a go-to knitting... Continue reading

I planned this bike tour of Provence last September, so it seemed to take "forever" to wait for this September to have the time arrive. Ususally, I try to plan my bike tours for the fall so I have all... Continue reading

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Summer Solstice will arrive in about an hour and the sun hasn't even set yet. I love those long days and midnight sun of summer. We are now receiving 19... Continue reading

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at the end of April. At that point, it seemed like the snow would never leave, but then every April I seem to think that. Of particular interest was our "two... Continue reading

I can't believe that's it's been so long since I composed a blog entry, and this will be a short one too. It's been long enough that the sweater that I began March 4, is already finished and ready to... Continue reading

I was able to finish 3 projects in December. My Henry VIII tunic, and my Pistazie socks, which I already blogged about, and then I tackled one of my longest on-going projects which was begun in 2007. Finally... I finished... Continue reading

Actually, it was the event of 5 centuries since the last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solsice was 1538. The eclipse began here at 9:30 Alaska time and I watched the entire thing by 15 minute... Continue reading

Just in time to wear for the holiday season... I finished knitting Henry VIII on Tuesday. I haven't washed and blocked it yet though. The colors just glow in direct sunlight, so yesterday when the sun was actually shining... during... Continue reading

I spent October finishing up the pair of ordinary socks that I began on our Vermont vacation , and then body of Hal (Henry VIII). Finished one of the sleeves in a week, but then had to "drop everything" to... Continue reading

It has been a very long time since I have composed a blog. On fact, I've never gone this long without a post. First of all, my computer crashed and my hard drive was fried. This happened in June when... Continue reading

Just a follow up to my last blog. Judging by appearances I haven't knit a thing. I'm still working on Fulmar... sweater for life; I'm beginning to think! I completely finished the front but I didn't take a photo since... Continue reading

With my DH and I being sick with bronchitis for two weeks and trips out of the house reduced to a minimum, I have been getting LOTS of knitting accomplished. Instead of working on one item all the time though,... Continue reading

Before I get lots of comments telling me that the Equinox is March 20... silly! Let me qualify my title by the explanation that because of our latitude... the physics of which I don't understand, we "achieve" 12 hours of... Continue reading

I was hoping to finish my Dale of Norway tunic that I've been working on since January 1 during the Olympics... that marathon meld of great knitting and TV watching, but it didn't happen. I didn't miss by much though.... Continue reading

Sometimes I feel like I have the attention span of a gnat! Was it only a month ago that I was so absorbed in knitting Hal, that I was feeling disgruntled about starting the new KAL, Knit a Norwegian on... Continue reading

About the time I thought I would be madly knitting away on Henry VIII, it was time to start a new Dale of Norway project so I could participate in Ravelry's Knit a Norwegian KAL. I have had all the... Continue reading

Disappointing... No, we didn't travel to Lapland for Christmas. That would have been fun and interesting, although the amount of hours of darkness and the weather would probably not have been a big improvement. No, that is the name of... Continue reading
