Knitting Again!

Hey all y'all! I've missed you! Yesterday I checked off a major box on my to-do-list, which is a load off everyone's mind. That means we can breathe for a second and I can update the blog. :) Then it's back to the grindstone. :P

I've been knitting, but it's all been so slow-moving, there hasn't been much to share! I think I do still have a pile of FOs to show you from way back in December and maybe beyond, but I promise they will appear soon!

I've been finishing lots of WIPs from years past. It feels amazing to finish the things, but working on them has been nothing short of torture. This is mostly because I'm also trying to be monogamous(ish) with the projects and they are almost all stockinette sleeves. Ugh!

This week marked the end of endless fingering weight stockinette sleeves and the beginning of some worsted lace ones. The difference is magical! I can't believe how fast this sleeve is working up! If you have an amazing memory, you might recall that I frogged these sleeves about a year and a half ago in the interest of a well-fitting sweater. That sweater should be realized as soon as this weekend (you know, 6 years too late...)!

Friday, I'll reveal either a newly finished minty sweater or a finished-a-couple-weeks-ago flannel dress. Or both! The sun has decided that staying up later than 5:30 is the cool thing to do, which I really appreciate. :)

What are you guys working on? Are you snowed/iced in? I've enjoyed many knitters' Instagram photos of snowed-in knits. I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow myself, but it will take more than 6-9 inches to get the university to throw in the towel.


  1. Arkansas has gotten more snow in the last three days than in the last three years and I'm loving it! Lots of knitting and spinning happening at my house. No WIPs to FOs, unfortunately. Not yet, anyway.

  2. Glad to hear you're knitting again and I'm looking forward to all of your FOs. Unfortunately no snow here at all, I think spring is starting already!

  3. Not even remotely snowed in, unfortunately. It's already spring here in the Pacific Northwest. Winter seemed to pass us by, and it feels so strange.

  4. Fingering weight stockinette sleeves. I feel your pain!

  5. Those sleeves are worth it! I love fingering weight sweaters - all the vintage patterns are that weight. I just think they sit better. It will be worth the pain! I am not snowed in - I am heated in (can't think of a term for when it is too hot to go outside!!)

  6. i've been finishing off wips too, so satisfying! love the color of your sleeve :)

  7. Ugh, I've been in the same boat re: not knitting much, and am just getting back into it (and also into catching up on my blog subscriptions, as you can see!). I just managed to finish off a sock that had been on the go since December. A single sock!

    Anyway, focus on how good it feels to mark projects complete on Ravelry and you'll get through it somehow, that's my advice :D


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
