I’ve been working on the medium size for my longies pattern that I’m writing up. They’re coming along very nicely in this lovely Purewool yarn. I just love knitting with Purewool! It’s so soft and squishy…. mmmm…
And speaking of my longies pattern, I’m so grateful to all of my wonderful pattern testers. Y’all are so amazing and your insight is priceless. Thank you!
Just put the finishing touches on the brown and green longies, and another pair of green shorties that I’ve been working on.
The longies are knit in Araucania with Cascade 220 trim.
And the shorties are knit in Purewool (Forest of Pines colorway) – which is quickly becoming one of my favorites… it’s so deliciously soft and fluffy!

Guess this is not officially a “work in progress” anymore, but I wanted to share anyhow. The first pair of newborn longies are officially finished!
All finished, drawstring and everything! Aren't they cute?!
And yesterday I started on the second pair in this lovely Araucania yarn, with subtle greens, browns and yellows. I’m using a dark chocolate brown Cascade 220 for the trim.
Newborn longies #2
I’ve tried so many longies patterns and never found one that really fit perfect, so I’ve been working on writing out my own pattern… it’s been a long, long road, but it will be finished one of these days!
I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
Happy Blue Monday!
I just thought this was too great to pass up.
Oh no! I lost a day! Well, here you go, wip thursday!

After much deliberation and soul searching (okay, maybe not soul searching) I have finally succumbed to the urge to jump on the band wagon and start doing “WIP Wednesdays”. For those of you who don’t know, “WIP” is an acronym for “work in progress”. So, with no further ado, here are some WIPs for today…

The Stash Buster Afghan
I started working on this afghan about 4 years ago when we lived in Boulder, Colorado… put it away for a LONG time and just got it out again.
I’m using all of my left over stash yarn (hence the name) on this one. Mostly it’s all worsted weight, single ply, but there are a few other random things thrown in here and there (some bulky single ply and some worsted multi-ply) .
It has gone in and out of the dresser several times over the last four years. Previously it has been my “movie watching project” and my “wine drinking project”, due to it’s super simple “k1, p1” pattern but most recently I took it out as something that I can work on while sitting in a mostly dark room waiting for my little one to fall asleep. I usually only get two or three rows done in a sitting, so this is still a very long term project!

Just knit up this delicious kerchief for a certain someone who cannot be named… smiles… wonder who it might be?
Hmmm… and what’s that underneath that yummy green kerchief? Could it be a tantalizing stack of knitting books? Why yes, it is! And right there on the top is my current read, A History of Hand Knitting by Richard Rutt, and it’s absolutely fascinating. I just love that the cover depicts both women and men knitting, so cool.
On that note, I’d like to say how thankful I am that someone, a long time ago, invented knitting!
