My apologies if you’ve tried to comment recently and your post didn’t seem to show up. For some reason, all comments have been going to moderation before they show on the blog. I have no intention of leaving it this way. I promise I’ll try to figure out what’s going on, and if necessary, I’ll have my geek love-slave fix it ASAP.
Lately, I have been getting much more spam than I deserve karmically, so it may be that Michael did something to the template in an attempt to keep the freaks away.
In other unrelated news that likely falls into the Stuff Nobody Cares About But Me category, I finished making my very first scarf, and it doesn’t look stupid. Yay! In that same category, I officially hate baby yarn. I may end up making my first pair of booties with sport weight yarn instead… How bad could that be? This is not a rhetorical question. Fellow knitters, I ask you, if I were to do such a thing, how funky would they turn out? Say, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the ugliest and weirdest?
Do you know any baby joggers? Cause that would be awesome.
Get the pattern for 1 hour baby booties.
I believe it’s in Stitch & Bitch Nation (??)
And I have no idea about the yarn question!
A kind soul sent me a great pattern to use. It’s just the yarn that troubles me. Oh, the evils of thin, scraggly yarn. Maybe I’ll get my courage up and try taming that booty again tonight…That just sounds dirty – but you know what I mean.
I think Stitch n’ Bitch Nation is a little advanced for my level, but I do intend to buy it. Right now, I’m working on the second scarf in the first Stitch n’ Bitch book, and it too is a little advanced for my level. 😀
I NEVER use baby yarn. It’s ugly and besides that, it’s ugly. I always use the brightest colors of whatever I can find that is a similar weight. The only rule I have is that anything for baby must be totally machine washable – including color fast. The last baby booties I made, I used a small navy yarn with gold thread running through it. It made some FINE looking footware. I have no idea why I didn’t take a picture….
If anyone cares about the moderating problem it is described here.
