Books and more

Here’s the picture of the completed Hippy Crunchy socks. I like how they look rather well. I decided to use only three pattern repeats, partly because of the time crunch. I needed to hurry up and finish them. I’m happy with the result, so I’m calling it a design decision, not cheating.

Small Items

Have you ever misplaced a needle, only to find it in the laundry a few days later?

I’ve been busy! I finished the Flamingo socks and mailed them off, sans mutant Zebras. The person who will receive the Zebras has already returned to the Cities, so I will gift these separately. Pictures are forthcoming.

Postscript

Here’s a PS for the recent post. I’m trying out* the ZenPhoto gallery, which some WordPress bloggers use. I love its clean interface and bulk uploading features. There’s a ZenPress plugin for WP that makes inserting images from the gallery fairly easy and painless.

Both appear to be relatively young in development; I think ZenPhoto has [...]

1-? Hats

I wasn’t very project-monogamous in November. Instead of devoting myself to my gift socks like a good knitter, I took breaks with several quick projects. The first two I worked on were hats.
