Three on Thursday | 2.22.18

This week there are some crazy fun things in my world this week! Thing One: If at first you don't succeed… find a better decrease! I tried valiantly to work the fancy SSK's that were shared via Mason Dixon Knitting on my Carbeth but, in the end, they just did not work...

Unraveled Wednesday | 2.21.28

I have lots to unravel today, so let's get right down to it! First up, today is my 1,111th post here on As Kat Knits! I had planned on acknowledging that momentous occasion  on the 1,000th post, but yeah... it blew by with little notice from me! When I realized it, I...

Tiny Moments | 2.20.18

After my finish of my Olympic-Bang-Out-A-Carbeth sweater, this morning I am indulging myself in Ali Smith's Winter and a lovely iced coffee (yes, the weather here is divine!) I have nothing more pressing this morning than finishing up the laundry and blocking my...

Long Weekending

That's right, the weekend carries on one more day. Thus far it has been a very good weekend with lots of replenishment time! And, with no plumbing or equally un-fun tasks! There was Olympic watching and yes, knitting - lots of knitting! I have to say, I just LOVE how...

And Three Become One

Yes, Gentle Readers, the sweater progression is moving rapidly along! Last night I joined the sleeves to the body and this morning I am ready to begin the decreases and I am going to take Ann's recommendation on how to work them. This is such a fast knit, it feels...

Commonsense Must Prevail

I cannot with good conscience participate in something as trivial as Three on Thursday, today. We are 46 days into 2018, just 46 days – 6 and a half weeks – 1 and a half months – and in that short span of time there have been 19 school shootings. That is roughly 1 in...

Unraveled Wednesday | 2.14.18

Happy Valentine's Day – or as Compassionknit says, Happy GALentine's Day, Unravelers! I got my knitting back on track yesterday and the body of my Olympic Carbeth is done and a sleeve is under way! Despite the little bits of time that I have had to knit on this, it is...

Sometimes Monday | 2.12.18

Comes too darned fast! (And, looks like a budding sweater and, I need to add dust the blinds to my list! Haha) I don't know about you, but my weekend sort of flew by and not in at all a pleasant way. Saturday, someone (not me) had the brilliant idea to replace the...

Going for Gold

That's right, Olympic Knitting starts now! Or rather at 6AM EST as Sprite so kindly advised me of. So, yes… I was up early and cast on, (not once but twice…grrr!) Above is my progress thus far on my Carbeth. I will be sitting down with Sherman Alexie and get some...

Three on Thursday | 2.8.18

I was poking around a bit on YouTube and found a few things that I thought you all might enjoy! I know I did! Thing One: "Bob Dylan" singing... Thing Two: SpaceX Live has blown my mind Thing Three: Skating with an Olympian… If you want to see more amazing things, head...

Unraveled Wednesday | 2.7.18

Greetings Unravelers! It is a snow day here in Pittsburgh, so Steve is home today. Yeah, that changes up my day a bit! But, the knitting is really heating up and we are only seven days into February! Clue Two will be out tomorrow and my mystery socks are eagerly...

Twenty-Nine Years Ago…

...this amazing baby was born! It was cold and a blizzard was raging as we headed off to the hospital. But, Rachel was a bright ray of sunshine as she entered our lives! I am bursting with pride at what the incredible woman she has become and at what she is...

Sometimes Monday’s should come with a nap

Last night was a light on sleep night here at Casa del KatKnits! The game was actually a game and we watched it to the end! I thought the commercials were not all that super and the sound at the halftime show was, well, poor sounding. I am not sure what they did to...

Friday Links, Open at your own risk…

This post comes with a disclaimer… these links are dangerous! I have cast on more things in the past week and there are at least 3 things linked below that I want to cast.on.right.now. I have some seriously knitsanity going on here. Good thing it is Friday and there...

3 on Thursday: 2.1.18

The February sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within. William C. Bryant While there is no sun today, these words this morning filled my meditations with hope. February is short, and her days are lengthening! In Pittsburgh we will...

Unraveled Wednesday: 1.31.18

Welcome, Unravelers! And, just like that January is over! It was a good month for knitting! I managed to finish three projects! And, I have cast on another sweater for Berroco's Lopi-Along! I started Strokkur yesterday but, I am not too far along. I love how Ysolda...

Tiny Moment Tuesday: 1.30.18

Juliann began with this idea on her blog last week and it just feels like the perfect thing, so I will be joining her here. Today, my thoughts are all about letters and handwriting as I get ready for the Month of Letters in February! Want to be on my list? Let me know...
