in which I write about stuff

Brown Aran Socks

So I had to do some …interesting… things to adjust the heel to two-at-a-time magic loop. Should probably write up.

10/27: getting a little nervous that I’m going to run out of yarn!

11/2: ran out of the Najad, knit in the leftover blue Cascade 200. quite possibly going to run out of that as well, I think I have some Lion something or other in tan if so. (started the toes, though.)

11/3 – managed to finish the toes in the blue! still have to weave in ends & block.

Bandana Cowl

Got slightly off on the short rows, probably very early on when I was still figuring out how they worked.

Not quite enough of the yarn to finish, but I like the gist of the project so I might buy some. note: used same style in a different color.

9/9 – restarted. 75 St remaining.

9/11- may have decreased one too many, so I increased back again in the final purl row.

Very cosy. I’m pleased, it’ll be nice when we have cold weather. Interesting effect with the heathered green & the tweedy black.

Update, November 2014: OMG this is amazing in cold weather. A++++ would knit again.
