[knitting] a little update

Knitting for grown-ups

oh dear, this section of my poor blog is completely abandoned! and let’s not talk about my Ravelry project page 🙁 A few years ago, I used to compile lots of information on both this blog and my Ravelry page and it was very useful for me: I knew which size of needles I used […]

[knitting] On my needles

Knitting for grown-ups

No sewing this weekend, because nothing went as initially planned, but I did manage some knitting and pulled out this combo of mittens and fingerless gloves, perfect for the cold mornings ahead. Yes we had our first frost this morning so winter is definitely coming! The pattern is from Spin Off magazine (fall 2010): Teresa’s […]
