Finished!

It’s finished! Now it just needs to dry so I can take pictures that will prove it has a sweater shape! ;o)

Effortless Fini

Thank you to everyone who entered yesterday! The winner will be posted tomorrow so don’t forget to come back to see if you won!



The Beginning…

…of a sweater always starts out so promising. You have pretty yarn, you have needles, a pattern, if you are lucky, a nice bag to put it all in

you cast on, you knit. You check the pattern, you keep knitting, back and forth (if it’s a flat knit), knit, purl

Effortless Cardi

you admire the fabric you’ve made so far, you count stitches to make sure you haven’t gotten ahead of yourself

Effortless Cardi

you decide to blog your progress, you pull out the camera, artfully arrange your knitting…

…and then realize that at this point, the only thing it resembles is a shapeless blob.

Effortless Cardi

…but you blog about it anyway. ;op



Trying to get back…

…into the blogging saddle – can you tell? ;o)

I’ve been so busy making bags, I have barely had time to do anything but sew, sleep and eat and the blog has suffered immensely. I’m going to try to put a stop to the suffering – of course, I’ve said that before but this time I have a blogging buddy! My friend Sairy and I are both knitting a sweater and we’re going to blog our progress (she’s a bad blogger too, hehe).

I have my yarn wound and my pattern on my new toy (Santa brought me an iPad) so I am ready to go!

The Beginning

Any guesses on what pattern I’ve chosen? ;o)

Also, over the weekend I celebrated a blog milestone. I’ll be back tomorrow to continue the celebration so get ready for a contest!
