WIP Roundup

April 29, 2013By 4 Comments

Hi all! Things have been quiet behind the scenes here at Sweeter Lemon, but that just means I’ve had more time to knit. Case in point: I have three project bags filled with Works In Progress (WIPs): What’s inside? Let’s take a look! Project #1 is the Circular Stranded Baby Surprise Jacket I wrote about […]

New Knitting Project: Circular Stranded Baby Surprise Jacket

March 21, 2013By 5 Comments

I continue to slowly but surely feel better and better every day. It had been almost two months since I had the energy or desire to do any crafty handiwork. When I had the desire to knit something, I knew I was on the mend. A little over a week ago, Franklin at The Panopticon […]

2012 Crafty Year in Review

December 31, 2012By 1 Comment

When I was thinking of this post, I honestly thought, “I don’t think I did all that much this year.” Ha! Seeing it all in one place makes me realize I had a really busy year! I learned a few new crafts, including canning, needlework and weaving. Knitting remained my go-to craft, but I also […]

Every once in a while, I finish a project and don’t want to look at it for a while. Something about it strikes a nerve. The yarn was fussy, the pattern had errors, it was just a horrible slog. Something happens that makes me fold it neatly in a drawer and put it away when […]

Cats and Yarn, Part One Million and One

November 12, 2012By 0 Comments

It starts out innocently enough. Two cats on the bed, one with her paws resting cutely on the scarf I’m drying. Then Ruby spies a yarn end. This cat cannot resist anything string-like. Yup, it’s over. (I love how Zelda in the background could care less.) Ruby was quickly removed from the scene, and the […]

There is a lot of action going on behind the scenes these days that I can’t blog about quite yet. Mostly I’ve been working on new shop items that I want to debut when they’re all complete, not just a few at a time. I also finished my Trapeze shawl but it really needs a proper […]

I’ve been on a roll finishing half-completed projects that have languished in a pile in my craft room. A couple of weeks ago, I pulled out the awesome Macro Mitts I started in March 2011 – over a year and a half ago! One weekend of focused knitting, and they were done. What took me […]

In one weekend, I had two complete projects, the first being this Dipped Infinity Scarf: Here are the details: Pattern: Dipped […]
