Hi friends and happy …. day whatever today is. Just kidding, I know it’s
Wednesday, Thursday. We arrived back to our little stone house Tuesday late afternoon, and boy, have I had a major case of the jet lags. I’ve done enough long-ish haul travel that I’ve developed some pretty strict rules from for myself (all stemming from one disastrous trip to Copenhagen many years ago, in which I managed to pretty much sleep through the vacation because of poorly managed jet lag). Overnight flight? Sleep as much as you can. Arrive. Stay up as long as humanly possible. Never go to bed before 7 pm local time. Never take naps.
Hi friends! And happy new year!
Wow, how is it the first Thursday of the month again, let alone of 2018!
I’m still traveling in the US, so this will be quick, but I didn’t want to miss the first sock post of the new year! And luckily, I have some new socks to share!
Hi friends! Hope you’ve been enjoying a peaceful and restful holiday. A few weeks ago, I mentioned I was hoping to take part in Knit British Wool Exploration, and today, I’m ready to talk about my first swatch (not a moment too soon as the deadline for reviews is tomorrow!)
Well, I’m a day late and a pair of newly started socks short, but it’s (the day after) the first Thursday of the month, so let’s talk socks!
Hello friends! Phew, Tuesday is already over — how’s your week going so far?
Usually, when I finish a project — especially a big one — I wait until I’ve gotten it photographed and (ideally) done my blog post before wearing it. Silly? Maybe! But I like to make sure I get pictures before I wear it in case some sort of disaster occurs (ha!)
Hi friends, and happy Friday! Today I have two one skein projects that I finished last month to share with you. Both feature special yarns and took just one skein. I love projects that feel like a treat while their being knit — the knitting equivalent of a trip to the spa or a pedicure, if you know what I mean. And I’m so happy with the finished objects.
So, first up: Melodia, by Janino Kallio (aka Woolenberry), knit in the Knitting Goddess BFL/Masham Sparkle 4-ply.
