A Study of Neglected Projects in their Natural Habitats


This past week has been trying for my poor knitting projects. My wrists have been complaining bitterly, so I’ve had to take some time off. Apparently, only pain will get me to stop knitting (and even then, not really) and give you a blog post.

The following pictures have not been modified in any way, including moving projects to better lighting, giving you a series of snapshots into my life and habits as a (completely disorganized) knitter.


Damson, by Ysolda in Rowan Purelife DK, chillin’ with my niddy-noddy by the window.


Citron, by Hilary Smith Callis with Malabrigo Lace, on top of the yarn bin by the bed.


Corona by Canary Knits, with Dream In Color Classy. Less than 6” left to go on the hood, it lives in my bag and comes with me almost everywhere in hopes of getting finished.


Finished projects awaiting finishing touches, hanging out on the board game shelf (top to bottom)- First half of the merino roving that I got from Mind’s Eye Yarn in Boston, waiting for the other half to be finished. Op Art baby blanket, blocked, waiting for ends to be woven in and gifted. Pi Shawl, blocked, waiting for ends to be woven in.


Bits and pieces of fleece waiting to be washed, separated or carded.

My mother is coming to visit for a few days, and she’ll be bringing a whole alpaca fleece with her, so I have to get my a$$ in gear to make room for it.


Good thing my wheel’s empty, huh?



  1. This was a heartwarming study of the epitome of Forlorn, one could almost feel the yarn crying. "Knit me, finish me, sigh..."

  2. Sorry to hear about your wrist. I hope you did not forget how to knit!
    How did you manage to have empty wheel? Is it sick or something? Waiting for anual oiling or are you gonna paint it pink?
