The KOARC posted this on his blog, but I think it is worth repeating here.
Disclaimer: Yes, in this video you can see piles o’ crap on my floor. (That would be a stack of knitting books, a tote bag full of sock yarn, and a couple of priority mail boxes.) I would be mortified if I had the energy. But I don’t have the energy to care, much less to actually clean the place up. So, onward to socks. Here is the first Hearts for Heidi sock:
Looks better on a foot!
It has briefly crossed my mind that what I really ought to do is pull all-nighters for the rest of the week. Finish these socks and bang out another pair, bringing the total for the Summer of Socks to 20 pairs. Upon reflection, this seems like a not-so-good idea. So my prediction for the total is 19 pairs.
Do you find that you have to frequently tighten the Options connection or is that just me?
I never have to re-tighten the Options connection. But my buddy L-B does. So it’s not just you.
Clara Parkes, of Knitter’s Review, is hosting a virtual fiber-guessing game and I was invited to participate. In anticipation of her new book, The Knitter’s Book of Yarn, once a week for four weeks, Clara is sending the participants a small package with two yarn samples and a question about them, plus a clue to help us figure out the answer. Here are the samples:
Mystery Fibers 091807
The clue: both of these yarns have a merino base plus one other fiber that gives a distinct look and feel. Can you guess the other fiber in each yarn? A hint for one: be sure to wash your swatches in warm soapy water.
I have my guess — what do you think? We’ll find out from Clara at the end of the game!
Enough with the camera!
