Not sure how it got to be Thursday, but here we are . . .
I see that in the Tuesday Marina photo, you’re doing the cuffs on circulars. Are they 12″? Do you do all your cuffs on circs? Curious. Thanks!!
I use 12″ circulars if I can. Most of the fair isles I’ve done have been successfully navigated with 12″ circs. Every now and then I make something with a tighter cuff that requires dpns. But for colorwork, I find it much easier to use a circular than dpns so I do so whenever I possible can.
Sock question: to make a sock that fits nicely all the way down despite standard variations in the general leg shape, would you use a 2×2 ribbing for the whole thing? or 3×1? What do you think would give the best fit? Thanks!!
I try to do a ribbing that pulls the sock in as much as possible, so I’d use a 2×2 over a 3×1. Depending on what the total number of stitches is divisible by, sometimes I do a k3 p2 ribbing.
Yes, I am a wild woman.
I am sure my mail carrier hates me by now.
Mouse mail! I got mouse mail!
Mousies from Karen in Huntington Beach, CA, Rachael in Oakland, CA, Tiffany in Marietta, GA, Samantha in Austin, TX, Julie in San Mateo, CA, and Allana in New York, NY. Thanks to all!
And Lucy says thank you to Karen for the treats and to Allana for the fuzzy catnip balls!
By the Way . . .
Not all those packages were mousies, nosireebob! I betcha at least a couple of you recognize the big blue bag. I know Geane does, don’tcha? Huh?
Because the big blue bag is from Jamieson & Smith and was filled with this!
Two bags full. Here’s the flip side of those bags:
Look at that! Some of the yarn is in balls with ball bands.
(Hello to Joyce and Lesley at J&S and thanks very much!)
Anyone want to hazard a guess what two projects I’ll be knitting with this wool?
And that’s not all . . .
I got this:
It’s an electric ball winder, capable of winding up to an 8 oz. skein.
Be still, my heart.
