Winding Way Mitts

March 14, 2018

I had to rip out about 15 rows of the second mitt after realizing I should’ve started at a different place in the chart! But it knits up fast enough that it wasn’t a big deal.

Pendulum

TBQH, I’m very disappointed with the bind-off. I tried a stretchy one for a few stitched, didn’t like the look of it, and redid with my regular bind-off held loosely. It was too tight after blocking. 🙁

I may seriously unravel the bind-off and try again?

March 22, 2018

I unraveled the bind-off (undoing the woven-in edge was kind of a nightmare) and redid it with a stretchier technique (k2tog style) with a #8 needle in the contrast color. (Didn’t have enough of the MC.) I really like both the feel of the stretchier edge, nicer to wear, and the almost eyelet-like look with the contrasting color. MUCH BETTER.

I left the yarn tails dangling from the tentacles, which makes for a nice visual. Not including those danglies, it’s about 6.5” long, 4” in diameter depending how you squish the bell.

Views Add-Ons

I did a little presentation about this at the Olympia Drupal User’s Group, so I thought I’d share it here: Modules I can’t imagine using Views without: Views Bulk Operations Views Data Export Doing complicated stuff with Views: Views Conditional Views Field View Integrating Views with other modules: Date Views Views content panes Administration views

BoB bracer prototype #2

This version has the correct cabling, does not have the purl across row before the pattern, and IIRC only has decreases after the pattern. (I found that shaping a bit thru the pattern gave it a better fit.)

BoB bracer prototype

This is the version with the skinny cables, which don’t look quite like the logo, and without the garter sections or any shaping.

July 27 – Made a swatch to clarify the cable pattern, now making a prototype bracer to see about overall fit.
