Thanks everyone!

knitting frenzy

CRAPPY WEATHER. I work outside as long as I can bear it. The flat is halfway turned into a fiber studio, and looks like a tornado hit it. My current projects are mostly repair, BUT I got a coolish commission last night: To knit a pair of Christmas stockings from a 1930ish pattern for two young kids. Evidently granny has knit abot 30+ of these stockings for the family, but is too old to do it anymore, and the youngest are the only ones bereft. It's not hard: The pattern is poorly written, but I have a sample to work from...Just a long skinny stocking with chilren in intarsia, then a panel with santa, and then a panel with pine-trees before it becomes a standard stock bottom. What I stand to make from these will pay half a month's rent. AMEN! And, I borrowed a digital camera, soI can finally photograph some of my knit projects. Hoo hoo!

Lace Dillema

So I am making my first foray into lace and I am at a loss. How do I not do a stitch and carry the yarn with me in the squares that are marked as black boxes?

Officially killed

Grandcarriage killed meMy Sock Wars death has arrived. Actually, I traveled to Portland this past weekend and met my killer, Grandcarriage.

Thanks, Bob, for killing me with such handsome gray socks.

For the next 30 days I'm going to go on a knitting fast. It's NaNoWriMo time! I've failed to complete it for the past two years... here's hoping for a new result (a minimal RSI)!
