Socks for big damn heroes

Ladies and gentlemen, I promised a full update when my new sock patterns were up for online consumption, and I’m pleased to finally do so! Hi, I’m a geek. Have we met? I mean, sure I love artsy things, and inspiration can and does come from everywhere. But sometimes, my friends, that inspiration is television. […]

Pretty cunning, don’t you think?

I’ve been getting steadily busier the last couple of months here at Knitting to Stay Sane, with designs and designs-still-being-dreamed up. I have a list of sweater plans the length of my arm. At least two shawls. And no fewer than two Harry Potter inspired knits, now that the final film has been released and […]

Tangentially related to knitting

There are some days when, despite having a blog devoted almost entirely to knitting, I come across something else that I can’t help but want to show off; like finding a cool thing and needing someone to run to and say “LOOK, I found this cool thing,” because finding it makes your day better. Sometimes […]

We interrupt this knitting geekery for regular geekery

Particularly in the summer when mainstream TV goes on hiatus, I tend to go through bursts of DVD watching or re-watching as I knit. Lately it’s been the X-Files, and since I finished off Season 8 last night (which, interestingly enough, goes by pretty fast when you skip half of it) and still haven’t gotten […]

This is the story of a pair of socks

I’d like to offer proof-of-life photos and reassure you that yes indeed, the vest has been steeked, finished, and is still alive, but the darned bugger is still damp from blocking and I haven’t been able to get it on to photograph yet. Soon. Soon. It’s cold and it’s vest-wearing time and that Ivy League […]

Tease

If you’re not in North America…look! I distract you with a picture of upcoming blog fodder! Lalalala! (Um. That Ribby Cardi FO post is coming, I swear. Any moment now. That collar is just about done. Totally almost done.) BUT, if you’re in North America and are a TV-watcher and a knitter, don’t miss Pushing […]

Just the links, ma’am.

No new knitting pics today, although the nail-biting action continues as I work through the 2nd front piece of the Ribby. Fingers still crossed for button-band-worthy leftovers. This morning while jogging I listened to the most recent Stash and Burn podcast (some days having that new podcast is what gets me out the door), and […]

Discovery

First, I must make a fannish PSA and relay some information I was mentioning to a couple of the gals at knit night last night (and for anyone else reading this who is a fan of Firefly/Serenity, or Joss Whedon productions in general). Tonight through Sunday, internationally (largely US and Canada cities, but some prime […]

The ‘Brennan Cardigan’

[Edited note, Dec 2013 – I’m no longer able to make this pattern available. Many thanks to those who have knitted and shown interest in it! I’ll be sure to keep bringing  my attention to new designs in the future :) ] So, a couple of posts ago I mentioned how my sister had just […]
