my handspun sweater is done, and my winter coat will soon have pockets

Each Wednesday, I post little snippets about what’s happening, and what I’m working on.


I knit the last couple rows and bound off the shawl I was working on, now it’s sitting next to the couch waiting for a good soak & blocking.

I wove in the ends on my handspun sweater.

Which was a surprisingly huge number of ends.


For some brainless knitting, I pulled out the pockets of my winter coat again. Funnily enough, before I pulled them out of the project bag, I thought that I had an inch of knitting left on the first pocket, but it turns out I have an inch to knit on the second pocket. I don’t remember knitting that second pocket at all. Maybe it was elves? Or maybe I have a magic appearing pocket?

So, not a heck of a lot of knitting happened this week, it was mostly finishing things up – and working on secret projects.

(Wondering what happened to that project with 1800 yards of thread, from last week? Well, that project is done, the total thread used ended up somewhere north of 3,000 yards – to give that some perspective, we also bought the fabric shop around the corner out of white thread…)
