New Photos!

I don’t really have too much to post about today, but I do have a couple of photos to share of projects that are now finished. Let’s start with the fun stuff, shall we… As far as actual progress goes, I’ve sort of been piddling around with stuff.  I did manage to finish the first …

Shoulders Up

My Corona hoodie is looking fabulous.  I finished the second sleeve earlier this week and got the two attached.  I’m now working on the raglan decreases.  Of course, I finally got to the point where I’m counting the sleeve-head stitches to see how much further I have to go, only to discover that they are …

Still on the easy part

I’ve been working steadily on my Corona hoodie.  The wide ribbing at the hips is finished, and I’m nearly done with the waist decreases.  So far, it’s been easy-peasy.  I anticipate a bit more difficulty once I get to the armcye and neckline with the cable pattern, but we’ll jump those hurdles when we get …

Starting a “Save My Sanity” Project

I’m beginning to think that the Vogue Stockings are a doomed project.  Attempt number three, while improved, has been side-lined by a dropped stitch.  Now, I’m adept enough that I can salvage a dropped stitch, say in stockinette or garter stitch, but not in this lace pattern.  Plus, I didn’t realized I’d dropped it until …
