Ripped!

A term I thought was only referenced socially when intoxicated.
After joining ravelry.com I found out that this is the social term used when you just have to rip out the stitches of a project and (if you so choose, as I usually do) try again.

I “ripped” Sea Foam Progressions Inspired yesterday…again!
It was going so well too but then I suddenly felt like it didn’t represent my inspiration and it was turning out to be NOT my best knitting.

So I’m trying it again (again, again).

Better luck next time chap!

Peace, love and Ripped!

Yarn Along!

Yarn Along via Small Things: sharing your yarn creations and your current reads 🙂


Today I’m contemplating friendship and reviewing which tech-knitting book I would like to purchase for my birthday in May. I’m split between Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Knitting Rules! and Jackie Pawlowski’s Field Guide to Knitting.
I’m leaning towards the Yarn Harlot Stephanie and her simple yet straightforward advice. It also has other little tid-bits about life in the knitters lane to ease the rigidity that book guides can have. What do you think?

I’m still working on Sea Foam Progression Inspired baby legs, they are turning out wonderfully.

This week I’ve finished the hat and booties that my Mother ordered from me for a friend who’s having  a baby boy.

Join Ginny and friends over at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along! every Wednesday.

Peace, love and baby booties!

Work In Progress: a pair of baby leg warmers named Sea Foam Progression Inspired.
I’ve been inspired by the Northwest coastal range my entire life and fell in love with sea foam as a toddler. The leg warmers are an artists interpretation of the progression of colours from the sea to the land with the magical delight that sea foam has taken in my life.
