Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Frankensweater – It Lives!

Mostly just to throw the sleeve from “Spring Fling” in there. It’s the many sweater of many sleeves.

I know I haven’t talked about the not so fair theoretical lately – after unraveling the front (and much cursing at the yarn) I did the sleeves and the back, and then put it aside for a while before starting the front *again.*

Now to weave in ends (why oh why did I not spit splice until working on the front?) And also to figure out hemming without making it look funny (I decided to do a hemmed edge, but didn’t consider that this would involve sewing around 42 inches at the hem, as well as around the sleeves).

In other news, I have 8 balls of sock yarn from knitpicks (and I *am* too lazy to take a picture). Two for machine wash socks, and two hand wash — which will probably be mittens, since handwash socks are silly). I think a sock would be a good next project. Small and portable. Sock or a side for Spring Fling. Or both. Spring Fling is pretty solitary knitting, with the small and the lace.
