Knit Night Results

April 26, 2012

Having a regular knit night is great for productivity. I was FINALLY able to join the sleeves to the toddler dress I’m working on and it now actually looks like recognizable clothing: I also cast on the Dollar and a Half cardigan for a mini Knit Along with Magical Grammar and Adaly Myles Place using Knit […]

The Heartland

April 23, 2012

Back from a weekend in the Crossroads of America. Spent a thrilling Friday cheering on my sister in the Indiana University Little 500 Race. Her team came in a close second.

April 14, 2012

Picking up where we left off yesterday, here’s the rest of the Delancey Cardigan. The sleeves were a real test of my patience. Lots of counting and re-counting, it’s enough to make you abandon a project for something new and exciting! But the Knit Along group were great motivators and I carried on. Progress (and photography) […]

Fancy Delancey – Part 1

April 13, 2012

Eight weeks ago, Sweatshop of Love hosted a Knit Along for Alexis Winslow’s Delancey Cardigan. I was sad to miss out on this one – it has been in my project ‘to do’ list forever – but I’d just put in a yarn order and that was going to be it for the month. Then, […]
