I am knitting merrily along on a new sock project and I had come up with a name for the pattern at the very start:
Why? Because I spent an embarrassing amount of time this weekend watching the Ninja Warrior marathon on G4. There’s nothing like a weekend of viewing six-pack abs and rippling muscles to make you feel really really out of shape (although I must say, it was serious eye-candy).
But my new sock design has six-pack abs and rippling muscles. See?
As I said yesterday, this sock is being knit from Dream in Color Smooshy sock yarn in the Lunar Zazzle colorway. I’m using my ubiquitous 2.0mm needles.
This is a stay-at-home project because the pattern repeat is 33 stitches by 32 rows, so I have a commuter sock knitting project as well. But it is a secret, so it will not appear here.
Lucy is busy trying to select a toy to play with.
A Ravelry Survey
Following is a letter from one of my blog readers who would like our help with a survey she is conducting.
Have you ever wondered about how other people use Ravelry and why it has become so successful in such a short amount of time? Well, I have. And now I need your help answering these questions. I’m a student at the University of Trier, Germany and this semester I’m taking part in a seminar on innovation management and am writing a term paper on online communities. Since knitting has taken over my life, nothing seemed to make more sense than studying Ravelry and finding out why everybody seems to want to get in and use it, and how those already in actually do use it. If you’re interested in these questions as well and would like to help a fellow knitter (crocheters are also welcome, of course , I would appreciate it if you could take 15-20 minutes to fill out the following online survey. It’s open until. As a little added incentive, I’m also giving away 4 skeins of Tausendschön handdyed sock yarn!
Thank you for your time and happy crafting!
