in which I write about stuff

This a test

I’m goofing around with IFTTT to see if I can convert things that I write in Evernote¬†(because I do that from time to time) into posts on my blog.

Coffee Socks

8/4 – started leg pattern. Sort of wish I had an actual cabling needle.

8/21 – dropped a stitch somewhere yesterday. :( Going to try to pick up today, hoping it’s not actually in the cable! OTOH, I’ve definitely gotten the hang of doing the cabling w/out a cabling needle.

8/31 – started heel flap of sock A.

9/2 – finished heel flap & turning heel.

9/4 – finished heel of sock B.

November – had to go to one at a time for the toes.

12/7 – had dropped for a while after having him try on the first one & it being a smidge too small. Pulled back to end of cabling pattern for toe and reknit with a few extra rows of K1 all around, finished it and length was perfect.

12/15 – omg finally done.

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.
