Note to Self

Dear Self,

When knitting top down garments please remember that you hate having to fuss with turning an entire sweater around in your lap once you go back and begin working the sleeves. Yes, it is very convenient to not have to sew seams. Yes, I agree top down raglans are very sweet. But please, please, try and remember to stop shortly after separating the sleeve stitches and put the point protectors on your circular needle, drag out some dpns, and get to work on those blasted sleeves… Continue

OMG math!

So I'm in the process of designing and knitting a new garment that I am not at liberty to divulge the details of right now. You will all have to hang tight and watch back here sometime in late Summer. With that being said, I'm going to talk about the design while attempting to remain a little cryptic.

By the time we finally made it home to hang out I was really too tired to knit. I did try, though. Gave it a valiant effort, but sleepiness overcame me and I ended up passing out while the guys chilled. I… Continue
