No love

Dear Stephen West, I’ve been a fan of your designs for quite some time. I signed on for the Color Craving MKAL 2013-09-27 07.40.50 because I couldn’t imagine your designing any shawl that I didn’t love. I was quite wrong but will continue to work this piece because I’ve already invested a good deal of time and energy. I usually don’t frog half-finished objects. I give them the benefit of a doubt. I don’t like the large gap-py ladder-like center of the striped section which is continuing in clue 3. This piece may live in a drawer or may be my at-home shawl. No love, me.That covers the WestKnits MKAL. I’m making good speed on clue 3 so hopefully will get to work some on my other just (k)nits in progress project, Halloween Socks. Sock 1 has been to the frog pond. I was using the OMG heel treatment but felt no love for it either so frogged back and started a regular gusset and slip stitch heel.2013-09-27 17.15.51 I didn’t like the way the OMG heel fit. I worked the gusset to the heel turn and found a dropped stitch so frogged about half the gusset a second time. The third time was the charm and I’ve turned and worked the heel and started the leg.

I also worked on my just (k)nits for others Robot the Peanut2013-09-27 17.14.11. I will add legs to him tonight. I want to knit Bitty Bee next but need to make a lovie for a baby that may be baptized soon. So will cast that on next.

I got a surprise in the mail. Well, not really a surprise because I received a shipping notice but thought it a club shipment. I’d pre-ordered the Got Candy? colorway from Fibernymph Dyeworks and had forgotten it. I’m hoping to make another pair of Halloween socks but not sure that’ll happen. 2013-09-27 17.16.37

I forgot to mention last post another reason for changing my Christmas knits plan is that I signed up for a Spinzilla team. This is a week-long spinning focus that’s a fundraiser for TNNA’s mentoring program. Basically each team spins as many yards of singles as they can.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
