I’ve been working on a test knit for my mug cozy for probably a month, picking it up and putting it back down. The intarsia was a slow process, since I designed the color changes based on my own visual likes rather than ease of knitting. I’d also never done intarsia knitting before this. With intarsia, […]
I’ve done a bit more research on the color knitting techniques I should try out for my mug cozy and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to learn intarsia knitting. Before today, intarsia and stranded knitting were all the same to me. Now I know better… When using the stranded knitting technique, the floating yarn on […]
Just a quick update on my knitting pattern design adventure. Worked on this in Photoshop (I guess I gave up on hand-drawing) based on the test knit I was working on. This chart is 76 columns by 42 rows. The color changes are still very spaced apart, so I will need to learn how to […]
I found this quote the other day and I was all, “Man, I could totally see that quote overlaying some mountain climber.

5/13/2009 It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about knitting. I’ve been trying to do more knitting lately and decided to devote myself to knitting a hat for my mom. She’s been asking for one for more than a year now so I needed to get off my butt and just start working! (Actually, […]
Tea, of course. Keeping my plants alive. Occasional knitting (with the softest yarn ever!) My new otocinclus who cleaned the tank all by himself! 🙂 And last but not least: reading. I’m in between 7 books… I must have ADD. (My current reading list) What are you drinking, knitting or reading? What’s occupying you?
