Squirrels like to nit!!


I'm in Salt Lake City for a few days, doing a small training/consulting thing for JBoss. It's been great to get the chance to see friends and family while I'm here, and tonight I went to Uncle John and Aunt Andrea's house to catch up and visit....

Sunday Sock Update

Well, with my time being sucked up this week with family events and the Komi mitten, I didn’t make much sock progress. I did get to the heel on the Ladybug sock, but the ribbing is really boring me right now...

I thought that i'd finally dive into the world of socks and chose this pattern as a starting point. However, i made the mistake of not reading through the entire pattern before i begun and now i'm at the toes and there appears that part of the pattern has been omitted...

Yarn querie...

I got four balls of yarn yesterday from Wally World. Two Bernat Baby Bubbles and two of Red Heart Treasure. Now the Bernat comes with a pattern and I was planning on doing it for DD.

Learning Fair Isle!!

I'm so excited. I am teaching myself Fair Isle! I always wanted to learn this but I seem to like the sweaters that are certainly for an advanced level of skill. I figured I would never reach that level - until tonight. Tonight I just said, "What the heck, I'm going to learn this." I had no idea it would be so freakin easy. Granted I am using colors that wouldn't be used together ...

Row gauge

I realized after finishing the back, that while my stitch gauge is dead on, my row gauge is way off. Like, the back is a good inch longer than it should be (more if I measure it holding it up). This wasn't apparent when I did my swatch. For now, since at this point I've finished half the front as well...
