I've moved...

I got tired of blogger's closed layouts - I want wider yarn pictures!

You can now find my knitting blog at Wordpress

I've made some progress on it...sadly just some, but happily just some due to my sweater. Pictures forthcoming of the sweater!

Rambling Rows for Rauscher-to-be

It's baby blanket time! There's another little Rauscher on the way - a little lady - and I'm making the Rambling Rows Afghan in celebration.


I love the color choices and it's flying so far.


I've started spinning...

First, I tried spinning on a friend of a friend's wheel. It went meh.


Next, i got the Louet Drop Spindle Kit. This is my first handspun and plied attempt.


It's terribly inconsistent but actually plying some singles helped me know what to do next...I press onward.

2008 Year in Review

I really came back to knitting in 2008. Even with the qualifying madness, I still knit a bit over 3 miles of yarn this year (around 3.07 miles, to be exact, or 5,405 yards). I made...

Two and a half pairs of socks
Two handbags
One baby blanket
Four dishcloths
3/4 a full cardigan
1/3 a short sleeve cardigan
One scarf (finished), one scarf (that will never end) still underway
One lace shawl
One lace shawl I gave up on
One baby mitten
One hat

And that doesn't count things I've knit and frogged out and already forgotten about (like some oversized baby booties and a sweater that only Escher's child could wear).

So what do I want to do in 2009?

Finish the wool cardigan
Finish the cotton cardigan
Finish the socks on the needles
Make another baby blanket
Make a bunch of baby stuff for the bunches of babies that are coming
Make myself some socks for a change
