WIP Roundup

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

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

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 […]

Trapeze Shawl

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

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 […]

Behind the Scenes

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 […]

Macro Mitts – Perfect Mittens for Holiday Knitting

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 […]

I didn’t get much work done on the blanket this weekend. For whatever reason, I got an itch to finish a couple of projects that have languished in the WIP pile for ages and ages. In one weekend, I had two complete projects, the first being this Dipped Infinity Scarf: Here are the details: Pattern: Dipped […]
