Hey guys. One may wonder and be amazed if one finds himself on the UGA campus to notice: Thomas hasn't been knitting.
In fact, I haven't knit one single stitch for 2 months.
And it sucks.
If there were a Susan Lucci of Knitting, who would it be?
So ya wanna be a soft goods software designer? Code this, Suckah!
If you're looking for a hard-to-find needle size (I needed 12" size 2 circulars) and can't get them locally, I'd happily recommend Spokane, WA-based Paradise Fibers.
So, what are you going to do with your extra hour this weekend? I'm planning to do an extra hour of charitable knitting (though sleeping in has its attraction!).
Perhaps you'd like to check out the knitting blog I started a few months ago.
I went online to hunt for the Fiber Trends felted clog pattern that seems to be super-popular here, and I discovered that I could pay $5.95 for a paper pattern, or I could download a PDF of the exact same pattern for $7.95. This seemed odd to me, so I e-mailed the company to ask why.
