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.

knit-mojo come back!

Posted by Amber on July 21, 2006

Last night I seriously screwed up my Miranda Pattern socks, and ripped them back out. Tried to cast on for some ribbed socks. Screwed up, ripped out. Apparently it was not my night for an actual sock.

I did turn the heal on my artyarns toe-up sock in class, and get almost to the cuff.

Other projects have been slow going. I finished the first ball of yarn for the top down raglan – still haven’t gotten to the knitting in the round part. I’m around 6.5 inches on the raglan (of 10″). So slow. I’m reconsidering waist shaping all together, and I think I might just leave it for when (if) I make a Picovoli.

The cabled hoodie (found the pattern) hasn’t been touched all week – the sleeve is still at 11 inches. But at least now I’ve got a good idea about how the cables work and how to reverse them. I’ve read about un-venting a cable, but it clicks with me when I finally just sit down and work it out.
