Vacation means knitting time!

My vacation has just begun and already I’m enjoying the additional time to knit and crochet.  I finally got the second overlapping leaves sock finished.  They are a little large just about everywhere, but I still have the problem of the leg being a little too snug to slip easily over my heel to get …

Let’s lose the placket.

I managed to finish the curried cable jacket without using another skein, and I’m pleased with the results!  I took apart the placket like I talked about in my previous post.  With the yarn, I was able to finish seaming the sleeves and set them into the armscye.  Plus, I still had enough yarn to …

Making a Matching Sleeve
