Work-in-Progress Wednesday (07/23/14)

Posted by 55799468 on

What are you working on this week? This week I'm working on resting my back, which I seem to have thrown out somehow. (Not literally THROWN OUT, I did not disconnect my back from the rest of my body and put it out with this morning's trash... although I kind of wish that was possible, and that I could just run down to the Farmer's Market this afternoon and get a new one...) In knitting, I'm almost done with socks for a friend... SO MUCH COLOR. I love it. She wanted wild, and that's what she's getting. The million ends...

Here's what I'm working on this week - A pair of socks I'm calling Wild Kaiso (the pattern is Kaiso by Judy Sumner). The crazy pink is something I dyed up when we had the yarn store, but sadly I forget what the two yellows are. Another Driftwood pullover, modifying it for short sleeves (since I already knit one with long sleeves). A pair of socks (Whitby by Nancy Bush) in my base yarn, Tiptree, in the discontinued color Afternoon Skies and the available color Weathered Wood. I'm also knitting on my 12-in-'14 project (Ragna Cap by Elsebeth Lavold) but after I took...

What are you working on this week? I've got my fingers in half a dozen pies (not literally, although later this week That Poor Man will be making a few pies for a 4th of July party we're going to). I'm knitting two pairs of socks (for friends, a couple that I adore, and I promised them socks late last year and have yet to finish them) and getting ready to cast on for my 12-in-'14 project; I'm firing the kiln as I type this; I'm planning my next big soap-making adventure; I'm getting International July yarn club in the...

Things-in-Progress Thursday (06/26/14)

Things-in-Progress Thursday! Instead of Works-in-Progress Wednesday, because the last couple of weeks I have not been able to check in on the blog on Wednesday. Oh, life. What am I working on this week? In ceramics, I'm cleaning a lot of greenware... ... see? A lot. I'd love to get the kiln full and fire again on Friday, but there are a couple of pieces still not dry enough to clean, so firing might happen next week instead. In soap, nothing much this week; I worked on it a lot last week and had a small update over the weekend,...

Things-in-Progress Thursday

Posted by 55799468 on

Do you ever have one of those weeks where you suspect someone must have put a curse on you? A real "Murphey's Week"? Where nothing goes spectacularly wrong, but not a single thing goes exactly, 100% right? Yeah. Me too! What are you working on this week? This week I'm knitting on two different things; a sweater out of Emma that I've been working on while watching Game of Thrones on Sunday nights. I'm almost done with it... ... and I've been working on my June 12-in-'14 project, out of a skein of Andre in a test colorway for club...
