Where does the time go? I don’t mean to be away for so long, but life is definitely getting in the way of my blogging efforts lately. Nothing bad, thank goodness… just busy with work and daughter and stuff.
I started Skew a few days ago, after re-reading The Magic Loop by Bev Galeskas, which I had bought at Knitter’s Day Out. It took me a few tries to get the cast-on and the first few rounds of the toe going, and then it took me a couple of days to convince myself that what I was doing was actually correct. Because if you look at the work, it looks kinda… off.
But then you try it on, and you realize that you’re actually getting it:
As for the Magic Loop method… I admit, I kinda like it. But I’m not sure if I like it enough to give up my DPNs. We’ll see what happens after I finish this project.
Meanwhile, I’m waiting for my Cider House Rules Vest pattern to arrive. I’d be thrilled if it came today, but not surprised if it comes next week.
Busy day ahead of me today… among my Things To Do: spend a little time watching (and counting) birds. Why, you ask? That’s a blog post for another day, but mainly, this weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count, a great way to spend some time away from the TV, computer, and all things indoors. Betcha didn’t know I had other interests besides yarn… ?
