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.

    Urban Aran

    Mariah: Ella Rae Classic

    Lucy in the Sky

Finally!

Posted by Amber on April 13, 2007

The cough medicine is wearing off and I’m having clear thoughts again!

It just occured to me that if I make Tricot as a cardigan (I like the half zip, but I’m not a half zip wearer. I’m a cardi wearer.) then I can do the body in one piece with no seams. (Well, no seams except for the sleeves – like I said, I’m off cough syrup and not having crazy thoughts like “I can do intarsia in the round with no problem!”)

Yay for no seams.

Also: My Pomatomus is almost done. But it’s Sock 1, not 2. (If you want to be technical, it’s 2.1. With Sock 1.1, I got through the first repeat, and then stopped decreasing for like 4 rounds. Wasn’t a good look. With all the twists and yarn overs, it wasn’t good. And they were in Lorna’s Laces, which was just too thin for the pattern. Sock 2.1 is koigu, and looks and feels much better.)

    I like the look of that sweater! Sometimes I’m a half zip person, sometimes I’m a full no zip person, and other times I’m a full zip person. I think it just means I should knit more of everything ;)

    I prefer Koigu for socks. It is nice and sproingy (my new word for the day…)
