Hi Kim, I've been missing you as well! Would love it if you'd share the vest pattern if possible, I've got some stunning reddish orange yarn yelling VEST! Great to have you back.


I love the colour you have chosen for your vest. Beautiful.
I wonder if I might enquire which vest pattern you use? (I am on a constant hunt for the perfect, or even a little imperfect, vest.)

HI KIM - good to have you back--- life always throws us these little hills to climb eh?

- have moved and been busy while you were away - need to get back to my knitting

- those nice mindless projects sure are the best through busy , stressful times

cheers and hugs --pat j


I just tried a short row heel, and ended up having to unravel the entire sock. I restarted it, but may convert the heel this time. I don't like giving up on a technique, so maybe I'll try it with some spare yarn and bigger needles to fix what I'm doing wrong.


Good to see you! Hope the nagging issues are quieting down.

How do you do the nupps? Mangofeet's method is pretty easy. Doesn't involve trying to purl X stitches all at once.


Kim, So good to read your fine post. I actually prefer shorter blog posts if that is any encouragement! Love the photos, especially the sock with the wee pumpkin.



So great to see you back!
Loving, absoluteling loving that sock!


Glad to have you back and hope that whatever made the summer rough will be gone and you are able to enjoy the autumn. Can you tell me what pattern you use for your "dye uniform"?
Look forward to more frequent posts...who cares if they are short...just glad to hear from/about you and yours...and knitting of course.! :)


Kim that is a great post. I hope that you are feeling better. I appreciate the link to the Tao book which I think is exactly what I have been looking for.
The Pea Vines shawl will be wonderful, I like the color of the yarn of all three projects.

Kim, every day I check in on your blog and I was happy to see you back. I think brief little posts are a good idea and I pray that each day finds you feeling a little better.

I'm sorry you've been going through a tough time. Hope you find your own personal "Spring" soon.


So good to have you back! Hope you're feeling better. I've missed you! Love that sock color.


What can I say...I've missed you. Missed hearing about what was happening and how you were doing. It is funny how much you grow to depend on these threads of connection. I do hope that you are feeling better. This summer has been crazy and wild all at the same time, I for one am looking forward to a change in the "weather".


It's so good to see your posts. Everyone's lives are so fast paced and it's hard to keep up with blogging the way we did. My plan is the same, to make smaller posts, more frequently. This post is lovely Kim. You've captured the essence of fall. Sending hugs and good thoughts your way, with lots of love.


Kim, I'm so glad you're back. I've missed you, as well. Shorter, more frequent posts will keep us all in touch, and that's a good thing. :)

Love your Keukenhofs. For the record, I'm not a fan of short heels, either.

And the pea vines!! Oh. My. Even mid-way through, even unblocked, it's beautiful. The color is perfect, too.

You're like me, I have to have mindless knitting around in addition to whatever else is on the needles. You know how runners cool down after a run? My plain, comfy raglan sweater (or vanilla socks), like your vest are my cool down at the end of the day when I still want to knit, but I'm done with the intricate for the day.


I'm so glad you blogged, I have really missed you. (even though I've seen you, figure that out!) Anyway, I love that sock. What a gorgeous rich brown and the pattern is beautiful.


It's so good to see you back Kim! I've missed you. I'm hoping that things improve and that you'll be feeling much better soon. Pretty knits you have there.
