My idea was to learn how to knit socks in Sock-tober, that quintessential of knitting skills during that quintessentially cozy month for knitting, as the days shorten and the chilly mists set in.

However, my summer knitting project, Barbara Bensen's lovely Earthbound Mi...

At last the sun and warmth are here after such a long wait! It's a perfect time to finish a depths-of-the-winter project, the Bundled in Brioche Scarf by designer Stephen West.

What could possibly be more fun than one MKAL (Mystery Knit-a-Long)? Of course, mmmmmore MKALS!

As life becomes more complicated I turn once again to my most therapeutic and addictive hobby, not to mention my favourite one, knitting! I've been able to finish two smallish-medium projects, and since my new favourite yarn is merino, both projects are in merino wool.

Knitting happens to be more child-friendly in my life than quilting, since the sewing machine has to share the kitchen table with the meals and snacks, whereas I can whip out my knitting basket whenever, wherever, snack or not.

Knitting also has the distinct advantage o...

 Knitting has been taking over my crafting activities as summer has arrived and with it vacations to beaches and such. Yarn and needles are so much easier to transport than a sewing machine and cutting table!

The project I've finished most recently is a sweater I made f...
