So many fandoms!

Dump all your yarn on the floor. Dump it all out. Seriously. Dump it on the floor or the bed or whatever. Then sit there for a while right in the middle of the pile looking at the colors, feeling all the fibers. Pet it. Snuggle it. Close your eyes and feel at random. Put each skein back into its…

I may have taught this spider to knit. I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows. After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.

I BROKE MY SHEEP TAPE MEASURE THIS IS DEV ES TAT ING

Sleeves have been sewn in. I used mattress stitch and eased in the arms pretty well I think. I do like this part of finishing off a project. I know that is unusual, most knitters don’t. I can see why. You have all the knitting part done and you want to get on to something new and all this piecing and sewing is a bit of a pain. I have found that if I take my time it’s much easier. Also I’ve learned a few sewing up techniques and they really help as I know what I’m doing now as opposed to before when I just used any old seam. Anyway next up I will mattress stitch the side and arm seams.


Those seams are nice!

NEW SWEATER COMING UP, I’M SO EXCITED!!!

The first hank pictured was one I got almost two years ago, when I first started knitting. It was briefly a shawl, which I didn’t really like and had no plans to wear, so I frogged it and spent a year looking for something to pair it with to make a sweater. I FINALLY FOUND A MATCH - THAT BLUE STUFF - which is on its way to me, and will soon become the sweater I’ve been dying over for months and months.

Both yarns are Miss Babs’ Yowza Babette skeins (Nobody but You and Innovative). The sweater is After the Rain by Heidi Kirrmaier ($6.80CAD).

Got some stash yarn you absolutely love, but don’t know what to use it for? Here’s some color-blocking inspiration for you!

The first three could be just about any plain sweater pattern, but the fourth would be very well suited to Alicia Plummer’s Ease!

Sweaters and an afghan! …Wait, was that rhetorical?
