Tidying up odds and ends


I went through my project drawers and bins this week and pulled out a lot of knitting projects that were finished, but not yet absolutely finished.  It is a continuum!

They all were fully knit (knitted?) but still had ends to be sewn in or needed to be blocked,

These cowls just needed the ends sewn in.  They are my brioche and eureka cowls.


Blocking is sort of an issue since we redid the floors.  I can’t pin quilts or block knitting without worrying about scratching the floors.  It leaves only the rec room for blocking – not a safe place due to all the kids-jumping-during-video-gaming going on, and our bedroom.  The still carpeted bedroom works if the cat doesn’t get too interested, but the largest floor space is between my side of the bed and the closet.  If I forget that something is pinned there, I step directly onto the pins and wires when I get out of bed in the morning.




But we must suffer a little pain for gorgeous hand knits, right?

The red crescent shawl is the Puaka Shawlette, and the gray zig-zag wrap is Volt.

And I have a lot more to wear now after all this tidying up – two cowls and two shawls added to the quite-full-already drawers of wearable knitting.
