    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.

More blog stats than you can shake a stick at!

Posted by Amber on June 1, 2007

Since switching to wordpress I can now see how people are finding my blog. Even if they don’t comment (comment people! I’m secretly a 16 year old fan fic writer, and it hurts me and I’m going to stop posting if you don’t comment!)

Anyway, I’m feeling very listy today and I’d like to take a minute to address my recent search terms:

ribby cardi cotton ease …Is lovely, but needs a zipper before it meets the internet.

knit pattern shawl collar jacket… I love my Shawl Collar Jacket from Artisokka.com! It’s awesome, and you should knit one, too!

discontinued cotton ease colors… I have them and you don’t! Haha! (I have blue, black, and wee bit of sugarplum (purple) left)

no reply from magknits… I’ve heard that’s a problem, but I’ve never sent a message to test the replylessness of magknits.

one piece knit from the top down raglan… I love sweaters like this! I made one using the formula here – but check your stitch count/gauge before blindly casting on extras when you split the body/sleeves. And add some waist shaping, otherwise it’s a little on the boxy side.

siena cardigan interweave… I have not made this. But I did see it over at Sweater a Month KAL recently. Also, try searching Sienna (with two ‘n’s).

picovoli too small… Yes, but I’m hoping for some bloom in the wash, which is why I haven’t talked about it since binding off over a month ago.

elizabeth lavold + february sweater… Huge fan of EL’s yarns, but I can’t comment on how well they’d work for [Elizabeth Zimmermann’s] February [Baby] Sweater. I think silky wool is machine washable, so I bet that would look really nice!

knitpicks kimono styled sweater… In the queue! I’m planning on EL’s Silky Tweed, but I also saw one done in Knitpicks’ Merino Style, and it looked great.

(I have so many things to tell you about!  My Neighborhood Fiber Co yarn came!  But I can’t pick a pattern!  I finally put my Samus together! It still needs a zipper.  I finished Ribbi Cardi #2, and it’s waiting for a zipper.  My Picovoli came back from India Sweatshop  mom’s house (but I still need to block it).  I cast on for my entrelac socks, and they look awesome!  I started the Simple Knitted Bodice (with silky wool … had a math crisis, and then a lost stitch crisis, but I’m back on track now!), I learn how to spin my own yarn in 10 days!  I can barely contain myself!)

    Can’t wait to see some of these new projects, or old ones for that matter, in person. I get a kick out of seeing the search terms people use to get to my blog!

    I’m back! I have subscribed and will start commenting again. :) I can’t find a pic of your Shawl Collar Jacket. When did you post it?

    Commenting now. I’d hate for my fave fanfic writer to stop posting. ;) Thanks for the purchase dude!

  5. […] The only thing in the message was “Interesting.  But I don’t agree with you.”  Which part exactly is there to not agree with?  My sweaters are not lovely?  Magknits is good about responding?  Come on spam, if you’re […]
