knit at nite

some entries about knitting and family to keep myself motivated at projects and the daily grin, i mean grind.


trick me once, shame on you, trick me twice...

cindy, is done. it made a nice debut at a yarn swap our snb had a few weekends ago. no pics though. then i brought it home and blocked... or, rather, felted it. you'd think i'd have learned by now, but no. that 'hand-wash' setting on my washer is just too alluring, somehow i can't resist it. but it's a machine - it doesn't have hands... i'm a lazy mortal with a short attention span and the setting seduces me every few months.


start picoverli


here is picovoli before she is unravelled. i love the pattern, i just knit it too small. you don't want to see it molded, i mean modeled... believe me.

finding last year's summer top (the one underneath picovoli) so comfortable, i think i'll get started on a second top with a similar shape.

speaking of unraveling; notice the rapid deterioration of any undertaking (even something as simple as some quick snapping of blog pics) i attempt. welcome to the kids' summer vacation. day after day of downpours is not helping.
