I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day. I'm definitely thinking about the fallen soldiers today. Especially my dear grandfather, who passed away a few years ago.


This is a memorial for the civil war battle at Shiloh State Park in Shiloh, TN.

WIP Wednesday: May 11, 2016

I had finally picked up my cross stitch project a few days ago, so I now have some progress to show you. 


I have finished everything above the banner, out lines and all. I'm going to be working on the banner next, do the out line and stitch the month on the banner.

Today, I've been working on the Cabled Knit Cardigan. I started the back of the hood and working on casting off right now. (The picture is from earlier today.)


My gauge is off so I didn't pick up the 88 stitches the pattern called for. You can see in my notes what I did on my project page, which you can find here.

I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with this project. Hopefully I'll have it finished soon!

What have you been working on this week?

Share it with me in the comments below or in the WIP Wednesday thread in the Ravelry group.

WIP Wednesday: May 4, 2016

After missing a Memory Monday post this week, I thought I would do a WIP Wednesday post. It's also been a while since I had one that wasn't a podcast episode. (I'm going to try to get a new episode out in the next few days by the way, I had to work this morning which is a reason why there isn't an episode for today.) 

It's been a while since I've posted about the pair of socks I've been working on so I thought I'll talk about it a little. The pattern is Longing for Spring by Caoua Coffee, I'm knitting it as a gift for some one I'm close to and I think they will really like it. The pattern just looks like something they would like.


I'm working on the second pattern repeat for the leg of sock one. My stitch count got off a few times so it looks a little off but not enough to really make me want to rip back and fix it. I'm knitting it out of Universal Yarns Pace in Navy on US 0 needles. I'm really enjoying this knit. :)

What have you been working on this week? Share with me in the blog's Ravelry group!

Happy Knitting!
