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.

Other People Have the Best Ideas

Posted by Amber on October 18, 2006

Check out this nifty adaptation of Tubey.

I really like the idea of using two colors, although I’ve heard mixed reports on the Malabrigo (some say: Pills like crazy, prepare to only wear it once. Others say: Awesomest stuff ever…knit tightly). (Of course, it would be possible to knit it in two colors without Malabrigo, but in a way, I’m curious what all the fuss is about). I could also just do it in one color, but the fake layers are kinda fun. I think I’d make the whole sleeve the shrug color, rather than ‘shrug over shirt’ style. I was also thinking that this could be a fun way to use the patterns for tube tops and tank tops that Interweave Knits publishes (that I don’t make because I don’t wear tube/tank tops).

Also: guess what’s dry!
