I always have many things I intend to post, but for some reason or another, I always get behind and some things never get posted here. So, today I’m playing a little catch-up and promised myself to post a few highlights of some of the long-over due things over the next few blog entries.
About 2 months ago, fabulous Jamie of “Jamie and Abraham” got stuck on a sock pattern that was weirdly written. I showed Jamie how to do the “magic” provisional cast on as dubbed by Cat Bordhi. The pattern he was working on seemed really weird and oddly written, but I wasn’t 100% sure since I really am no sock knitter. However, after consulting with other people in the knitting group as well, we all concluded that the pattern construction was written in an odd manner, and not in the “odd but creative” or “odd but adds to the pattern” kind of way.
Many many months ago, Zona alerted me to an artist’s fair/sidewalk sale in August at The Camp and The Lab. They gave me a fantastic booth area in a pretty high traffic area. There weren’t as many people as I had hoped, since I think people were getting ready for last minute school shopping. However, I fared pretty well compared to another fair I did that month. My handpainted silk scarves and reversible headbands were a hit and everyone liked the hippie chicks. Can’t say much about handknit stuff – but it was really really hot to be thinking about wool for most people! Of course wacky knitters think of wool 24/7.
