Let it be known that I did not drag my ass out of bed on a Saturday morning at 7 am in order to be the ONLY ONE to show up to the knitting club. Screw this, I'm going home. Someone else can take over catering to these students...

Hate Your Umbrella Swift?

go here

Kristin Rengren (author of Vintage Baby Knits) has done an amazing job rounding up a few models of the squirrel cage swift, which works a lil differently from an umbrella swift.

The info is great, and worth a look if you find that you don't like the way your umbrella swift works.

Thanks Kristin!

No, Christmas Knitting Hasn't Started....

I have been doing things, mind you. I have been working on the test knit. I am through the torso, and am now shaping the shoulders. Then it's just sleeves and a hood!

Then I started swatching for my dad's Gansey, by Martin Storey. Fourth Photo down on the side scroll, with the guy holding a canteen. :P(rav link)

I somehow managed to get today off. Weird, I know. Tomorrow I am taking a personal holiday so that I can go visit Jared Flood (BrooklynTweed for a book signing and talk. I am so excited! :D

Tonight I am going to go to a knit group thing down the street from me. I really want to get some knitting done in a group setting.

Hopefully all is well with you.
