Quick Recap

Something happened last week and every night just disappeared. So a quick recap:

I made sock yarn! Freakishly excited about this. It’ll be washed and dried tonight and hopefully I can start some socks with it next weekend.

365.56 first sock yarn of 2011

I am much closer to being done with the new-favorite-sweater, which I was avoiding for two reasons. The first was I discovered I was a moron and while I noted how much the knit swatch grew in the stitch direction, I didn’t note this in the row direction. By the time I sorted this out, I was done with the body and had arm scythes that went down about 4 inches too far. Which is most certainly not fashionable. (Along with skirts that make you look stumpy. But I digress.) This meant I either had to be fancy, or rip out the whole top. I decided to be fancy and have a post ready for later this week with photos of how you too can be fancy if you somehow screw up and make a sweater for someone about 3 feet taller than you are. The second was I’m on the sleeves and while I’m magic looping two at once, which I will admit is making it better, it’s still sleeve knitting and still boring and I was afraid to get to the caps because then I’d have to deal with the fancy thing with the arm scythes and somehow that stalled me for a whole week.

I fixed it this weekend, though, so progress has commenced again.

And it snowed. Not welcome. That’s all, back to work again.

  1. I’m applauding your spinning sock yarn! Hooray! It looks pretty.

    I’m very curious about this fanciness you mention.
