Closing Ceremony

As is usual, watching ALL of the Olympics (excluding hockey) requires some catching up by the end. It took me three extra days to finish watching everything, so that’s why this blog post is late. I did stop knitting once the closing ceremony was happening in real time though. This is what I accomplished: I… Continue reading Closing Ceremony

FO: Cabled Tea Cozy

I finished a thing! My first finish of the year! It’s the cabled tea cozy I’ve been working on. This one required a lot of sewing up, which is my least favorite thing to do. Each side was made separately and then sewn together. Then a large i-cord was knitted and sewn around the edges.… Continue reading FO: Cabled Tea Cozy

Yarn is Canon Hand Dyes Charles in The Exorcist. There’s a texture pattern in the lighter stripes that is charted. Well, I inexplicably forgot how… Continue reading Knitting Olympics Take Two

FO Friday: Cozumel

(I wrote this a few weeks ago, but forgot to hit “Publish”, ha!) I actually finished a thing! It’s been a while since I’ve done that. For the Cozumel cowl I decided to block it flat before grafting the ends together. I took advantage of the heat wave and blocked it outside. I found that… Continue reading FO Friday: Cozumel
