When J.P. was in town over the weekend, he brought a little something to me. And it is too pretty not to share! Cristi, J.P. and I put in an order with BMFA and had it delivered to him with the promise that he would hand deliver it. And wow is all I can say. [...]

February 6, 2008

There isn’t any! Well, there is a very tiny bit and a couple FOs (I guess I could post one of those today) but following my lovely incident and the welcoming of Stitchy, I haven’t done any knitting. Seriously. None. Not a bit. I have been typing for work, but I have been resting my [...]

It’s all about the eyes!

January 29, 2008

Eyelets that is! This week I did the 3 Increase pattern swatches. 2 of them are identical in what they create, but they use different mirrored decreases to get there, so it is fun to see them come together and compare the two – which is the point. 8 of 16 swatches knit!
