Pattern: Waterlily by Meghan Fernandes. Originally published in Pom Pom Quartlerly, Issue: 8 (Spring 2014) Yarn: Quince Sparrow (linen) in Banyon Skeins/yards: I regret to say I didn’t keep track of how many skeins I used. But I bought enough yarn because I have an entire skein left over, and it just might be yours! See details …

 

Waterlily Tee-Getting Closer!

   I am in a knitting rut. Three projects stuck on the needles. All unfinished in various stages of progress. Back in the olden days (two months ago) when I was a monogamous knitter, this never would have happened. I would have remained focused. One project. Then the next. Instead I am desperate for a …

 

Hello? You’re looking for me? I’m over here. You know, by the pool. Lounging in the shade with my cocktail, staring longingly at my pool floaty, wondering what system I can possibly devise to enable me to knit my sock WHILE floating in the pool without risking my entire skein becoming overly saturated or otherwise …

 

All things considered, I am making great strides to complete my knitting bucket list for the year. I’ve finished the last of my 2015 projects, and my Waterlily tee even double counts as a tunic. (It came out a bit long, so I’ve been wearing it with leggings.) I dabbled in colorwork and even managed …

 

Knit Early and Often

Things that make me grouchy: Not being able to knit every day. Not being able to walk or exercise every non-working day.  (I just spontaneously bought this GoKnit pouch to finally try walking and knitting socks. I believe this might fall under the category of two birds with one stone. Or, a future broken ankle. Remains …

 

As I wrap up my final stitches on my holiday knits, I promise myself I will never knit socks for Christmas gifts again amidst a barrage of under-breath-muttered profanity, tense neck muscles, and dark thoughts, calmly allow my mind to wander to the future with poise and patience not unlike a Buddhist monk. My next …

 

All the Pretty Blues

My knitting bag may be a giant, disorganized jumble of random needles, loose stitch markers, and bits of torn paper containing invaluable (illegible) pattern development notes, but at least it’s color coordinated. Blue. There’s the multi-toned blue sock that was going to be a holiday gift. Except it came out too small. So now it’s …

 

Finishing and Plotting

I am sure you already know this…but…it’s November. You know what this means? It’s panic time. Holiday knits?!? Uncork wine. Deep breaths. Or, chamomile tea (with extra honey). Xanax? Yes, please. Consider just making cards this year. (Too tacky to simply send post-it notes? Emails? Text messages?) No hand knits. Every knitter needs a year off sometime. …

 

Close Call

It’s incredibly smoky at our house from the forest fire bonanza that is ripping through our community. To escape to fresher air, we’ve taken daily outings ocean-ward to spare little Reed’s precious lungs from hazardous air quality. I have been taking my Waterlily tee with me for car knitting, having finally figured out I can …

 

Starting Fresh

   Over the course of a single summer, I went from being a Serial Monogamist Knitter (SMK) to having three projects on the needle at once: my socks, a Waterlily tee, and now this.  Never would I have guessed this would ever happen to me. Before you know it, I will be exercising daily, ceasing …
