30.05.03: Sweater for the mister.

This is after I frogged and reknit 60 rows. That's right. Sixty. Please, make it stop. The cotton raglan sweater I'm knitting for my husband is turning into a nice lazy project; I've only been knitting a few rows every...

14.05.03: Hello. I'm a snail mail glutton.

Just a few more rows, and we're blockin'! I'd really love to finish off the remaining 10 rows on both front pieces of my pretty cotton jacket, but I'm too busy getting some great surprises in the mail: Nancie Wiseman's...

10.05.03: Becky Needlehands.

Dear Santa, Can I have an extra pair of hands for Christmas? Yeah. And I want them with knitting needles already attached to them, like the way Edward Scissorhands has scissors attached to his hands. That way, I could leisurely...

07.05.03: Send aspirin.

Ah, nothing like going to a playground packed full of screaming kids to get one's adrenaline pumping and a stress headache to end all stress headaches. Really, I have nothing against kids, but I don't like them when they're in...

05.05.03: Chain selvedges for crochet edgings.

Oh, just finish me already. Doesn't that look tiny? It's the beginnings of the right front piece of my pretty cotton jacket. The right end looks a bit tighter than the left end, but that's because the right end is...

05.05.03: It's spring. No, it's summer. Wait, it's still winter. No, it's spring...

Dear Weather People: Whuddup with the freaky weather? First it's sunny, and then it's cloudy. Then it's cold, and then it's hot. Then it's windy, and then it's not. You know, I've got some short-sleeved and long-sleeved cotton tops to...

22.04.03: Stretchy boy's new sweater.

I finished my son's raglan sweater in time for Easter! I may not like seaming sweaters, but I really don't mind investing the extra time it takes to do finishing. And this sweater required a lot of it: joining those...

17.04.03: I see the light at the end of the seaming tunnel.

If I only had a neckband. My husband has been home all week on vacation, and yesterday we decided to go to Place des Terreaux for a stroll with the kid, and then for lunch at the Arizona Grill, which...

15.04.03: Incessant knitting blab is goooooood.

Pardon me, my selvedges are showing. Random notes from all over the place: 1) The weather hit the 70s today and all I could think of as I got my hair cut [perky, flippy, short 'do, thank you] was "Damn,...

13.04.03: Two or three aspirin oughta do it. Yep.

Seam this for me and I'll give you chocolates. Finally got off my lazy bum and am halfway through seaming my son's raglan sweater. After spending a somewhat hellish time sewing the sleeves to the body of the garment, which...

07.04.03: Queen of Procrastination.

Okay, okay. I know I had a date this weekend with these sweater pieces for some seaming, but I broke it. I did nothing knitting related all weekend long, and when I got the chance on Sunday evening to do...

04.04.03: Seaming! For Joy!

I've got a date this weekend with a particular pile of sweater pieces for a hopping seaming session. They've been sitting on my little work table for a week, all blocked and dapper and wanting me to piece them together...

01.04.03: Swatch City.

During my first year of knitting, I never swatched. Never measured, either. [What? Waste all that yarn? Pfffft.] Moreover, I was the type of knitter who - gasp! - never read through or studied a pattern before beginning to knit....

29.03.03: Look, Ma! I did a swatch!

In one of my previous jobs, a great part of what I did consisted of negotiating transactions. Now I do it with my knitting as a (somewhat lame) means of remaining focused on certain projects. Sometimes it works, sometimes it...

29.03.03: Pretty Cotton Jacket.

Pretty, oh so pretty cotton jacket with bobbles, cables and seed stitch using Aviso cotton yarn and 4mm needles, following a pattern from Phildar's Tendances Spring 2003. View this project in pictures and visit the rest of this page...

19.03.03: Blue on blue raglan, 2x2 ribbing and tubular cast-on. Oh my.

I haven't been able to dedicate as much time to knitting as I usual do, but over the last few evenings I've made nice progress with my son's raglan sweater, and have completed the back piece and am about to...

18.03.03: Raglan with Vertical Stripes!

Child's raglan sweater with vertical stripes on the sleeves using size 3mm needles and Phildar's Lambswool, following a pattern from Phildar's Pitchoun 2003 spring catalog. View this project in pictures and visit the rest of this page for additional images...

16.03.03: Finished fuzzy!

As it is Sunday and I know that all the cool people visit my site after a busy weekend, I hereby present you with [drumroll, please] the screaming pink Muppet Pimp Coat! And can I add that even though this...

13.03.03: Sewn-on facings are the best kind of knitting fun.

"You can talk the talk but can you walk the walk?" That's a little phrase we like to say in my family, only half-jokingly, when someone opens their big trap about being able to do something, but comes up with...

10.03.03: How to: Not set embroidery on a white baby sweater.

Ironing embroidery is, well, a dumb thing to do...

04.03.03: Knitting lady blabs incessantly.

Random notes from all over the place: 1) A great, big, public thank you to Patricia for sending me this adorable berry hat pattern for no reason other than she is thoughtful and saw that it was on my wishlist...

28.02.03: Dragging my butt on the Muppet Pimp Coat.

How to: Procrastinate in knitting in a somewhat productive manner. Don't work on a Muppet Pimp Coat, but knit a t-bar baby shoe for no reason other than it looked cute in the book.Me? Procrastinate? Uh-uh. Rowan Cotton Glace in...

26.02.03: It's like a valium, I tell you.

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm really bored with the Muppet Pimp Coat (thanks to Kersten for coming up with that one) and only find myself knitting it if I'm watching television at night. Unfortunately, I haven't been watching television very...

21.02.03: Fuzzy!

As I mentioned before, February is for knitting pink because I like being Valentiney in a kitschy way. So my current project is the fuzzy pink sweater with red mohair trim a few of my kind visitors suggested that I...

18.02.03: Say it with me now, "tweeeeeeeeeedy coat!"

Here it is - my son's tweedy coat! (Click the thumbnail below for pictures.) It's a bit large now as I had resized the pattern; the largest size in the pattern is for two years but I added on a...

14.02.03: Happy Valentine's Day ;-)

Click me, please. That's a little sneak peek at what's in my knitting bag right now. And there's something inside of the bag for you, too. Go on...click, click!...

14.02.03: "Muppet Pimp Coat"

Woman's fluffy pink sweater with red mohair trim at the neck and wrists. Knit using Phildar Neige and Aurore, size 6mm needles and 4mm needles following a pattern from Phildar's Tendances Automne 2002 catalog. Click here to view a...

12.02.03: Backstitch collars on the brain.

My son's tweedy jacket is seamed and almost ready to go! All I have to do is embroider the pocket and sew it on. The collar was finished last weekend, and was sewn onto the jacket using free-loop backstitch....

09.02.03: The Mexican Pink Scarf.

"Con dinero y sin dinero Hago siempre lo que quiero..." Remember the Sex and the City hat I knit specially for my friend Elise? Well, she liked it! So I just finished knitting a scarf to go with it for...

06.02.03: Knittin' blab.

I promise I'm not procrastinating on seaming my son's tweedy jacket. Me? Procrastinate? Never. We all know that I just rushed to sew that jacket up, because seaming is like number one on my list of Top Ten Favorite Knitting...
