Blogs

Updated Info.

Hey, guys -

Haven't been on this site in several years. Actually quite happy that it's still around. I updated my Instagram photo link. Sorry if you've tried to visit that page and couldn't get to it. I forgot to update the link a few years ago when I changed it; sorry :-( Drop by it and say hello/follow and I'll follow back. Thanks, guys.

How Time Flies

I can't believe it's been over 3 years since I've been on this site. Or posted anything.

It's not that I haven't been knitting in that time. I've done several large pieces mostly, and mostly as gifts for other people. Inspiration sort of waxes and wanes, I guess. I have several pieces sort of languishing unfinished in the closet next to me as I sit at the computer right now.

Spirit Day

Once again, I write a rare blog post for this group.

However, I want to remind everyone that October 19th is Spirit Day. A day to show support for our youth - especially LGBTQ youth - as they deal with bullying. In this time of turmoil in the world, they need to know that there are adults who choose to love them and respect their right to be who they are. No qualifiers. No strings attached. No judgement. Just acceptance and support.

Please, more than ever, be one of those adults.

Progress on Sock

Hi guys,
I made some modifications to two patterns and melded them together in this sock. Originally, it said to begin and end each row with a purl stitch. Even though it can be done, I really dislike starting a row in the round with a purl stitch; just my personal preference. So, I just moved the side cables closer to the center main cable and added three stockinette stitches on either side and decreased the purl stitches accordingly. Here is the result.
