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.

Let’s pull out the Freud

Posted by Amber on April 10, 2007

Last night I had a dream that I dropped Samus off at the the tailor for a zipper, and she charged me $700 for it.

Sadly still not a dream: The day I thought it would be easier to do a provisional cast-on and then graft the top of Samus to the saxon braid edge, rather than pick up 160 stitches over 240 rows (I tried twice – I kept picking up 50 stitches over the first 100 rows. Not easier, in case you were wondering. I grafted the first twenty stitches to the edge, and it looks like crap. Now I’m thinking I’ll go back, pick up those 160 stitches, knit one row, plus knit one row from my provisional edge, and try grafting those together. Unless someone has a better idea.
