On the Needles.

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! It’s been a while since I paused mid-week to share an update on my knitting – wanna see? First up, the project that has seen no action since November 7 – yep, Shifty. (Ravelry link)I got the second sleeve started that Sunday and then set it aside for a project that required a lot less focus (not gonna lie, all those ends – and that’s just the body – there are even more on the sleeves! … aren’t that exciting either). That would be Caramel (Ravelry link). Inches of 2×2 ribbing with a whole lot … Continue reading On the Needles.

In Process.

This marks the almost-end of the first month in a very long time that I didn’t make a list of things I wanted to accomplish. I did have weekly to-do lists to be sure the must-do’s got done, but that was about it. So I have things in Process now.

Smitten with Autumn Colors.

Happy Tuesday friends! We’ve had some gorgeous weather this past week – blue skies, chilly nights, and sunny days warming to the 70’s. The colors and textures are stunning. And … my Shifty Pullover (Ravelry link) is finally showing progress … more colors and texture! I’m smitten! When I chose the colors for this sweater, I really didn’t have “autumn” in mind at all … but these are certainly colors I’m seeing outside. and now I’m wishing I had a brighter blue, and maybe a pink?! …maybe next year!
