i was gifted with a antique book of knitting, crochet, and "other" patterns, a couple months ago. since i found that a PDF was available, i gave the physical book to someone who would appreciate such a thing, and started in translating antique knit-speak to modern notation. (this is starting to become a theme!)
the TIAS is up and running again, and i'm running behind trying to keep up! i've been an average of two "days" behind the whole time!
here's my composite of days 1-3 and 7... there was a mixup at the end of the first ear (yes, i'm with the rabbit crowd!) and i had to start over again... in the middle of church, which made pictures problematic.
i recently moved a very large plywood bookcase into my bedroom, where i have, if not more open floor, at least an openable floor with no(t much) cat hair, so i tacked a sheet to the bookcase and pinned the wet shawl to the sheet! this wasn't quite as straight forward as i'd have liked, especially since i was sort of MaGyver-ing the whole thing. but...
and a close up!
(there's a right side up pic on flickr, if yer interested!)
the blue one will get its turn either tomorrow or when i get back from Origins... hopefully tomorrow, since i'd like to wear it in Ohio!
maybe someday i'll get blocking wires, and blocking mats, and proper pins (instead of lace pins, sigh) ... maybe...
i am a geek... and i have too many hobbies... there are times when it seems like i should begin devoting specific days of the week to specific hobbies. of course gaming is on Friday, and comics are on alternate Tuesdays, so i'm halfway there?
