in which I write about stuff

Mistake Braid

Not sure yet whether to make M or L size, so I’ve paused at the first place where the patterns diverge.

After looking up some stuff about foot sizes, decided to go with the original measurement that Elizabeth sent. (Aka 11”, so size L.)

12/13 – after conferring with the yarnaggedon gals, decided that I need to pull back and knit size M. (sigh)

12/16 – did the pulling back, managed to very neatly restart from the place where the sizes diverge!

12/19 – started gusset increases. I like the way this is going, it’s maybe just a smidge over intended gauge.

12/29 – once I got through the rassafrassing heels (I really didn’t like the doubled w&t with pickups. if I’d done it better, it’d look amazing. But I had a terrible time with it.) it went really fast, and they look cozy!

Hedgehog!

I think the gauges on the two yarns didn’t quite match as well as I was hoping. Could’ve gone with one bigger needle on the face/belly. Also, the eye & nose yarn should be fairly heavy, more like an aran or even bulky, but the worsted I had on hand looks cute too!

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.
