Have been busy at work, but managed to knit a bit on the Nordic Cowl. Progress is moving right along – am more than halfway through the second half, so I guess I’m past 75 percent done:)! When you get this close to finishing a project, you just have to keep on keeping on.

Progress has not been as swift as I would like, mostly because knitting with thick yarn and fat needles can be tough on the hands (I … Continue reading Banging out a Carbeth… or was it Slogging through a Truckbeth?

I am writing this on a work break; in about an hour or so, I will start my late-afternoon, early evening round of client visits, then with any luck to the knitting meetup I have been notoriously awful about attending. I thought I’d start this post with something non-knitting-related and a fairly unusual … Continue reading Well It’s About Time!
