IK winter 2005 preview!

Look what's been going around blogland: the IK preview. Is it me, or is this issue coming out really late (dec 13)? Maybe they got so busy with Knit Scene that they put the regular issue on hold... Anyway, I love the idea of seeing the projects before the magazine is even printed.

Another thing going around blogland:

Your Birthdate: May 3

You are more than a big ball of energy - you are a big ball of hyper.

You are always on the go, but you don't have a type a personality.

Instead of channeling your energy into work, you instead go for fun and adventure.

Witty and verbal, you can have an interesting conversation with anyone.

Your strength: Your larger than life imagination

Your weakness: You tend to be pretty scattered

Your power color: Lime

Your power symbol: Lightening bolt

Your power month: March


Well, it is true that instead of "channeling my energy into work", I am writing a post... And I love my power symbol: the thunderbolt! (Better than a snowflake).


I've also been doing some dessert knitting. Yes, I've been a bad girl. The veggies (Mermaid, the Brioche capelet and the DNA scarf) were completely tossed aside last night in favor of my first attempt at Fair Isle. I received the Vinternatt mitten kit from Nordic Fiber Arts (super friendly owner by the way)! Since I had never done Fair Isle before, I practiced on some scrap yarn for about oh, 10 rows... then I dove in! I've got the cuff done, and I'm 7 rows into the mitten. I also finished the lining for the cuff, using Marnie MacLean's no sew hem technique: you pick up the stitches that were on hold, knit up your lining with smaller needles then you fold over your lining to its final position so the lining stitches and the regular stitches are all lined up. Finally, you knit together one lining stitch with one regular stitch all the way around. Then you just go on knitting your regular stitches. Brilliant. And neat!
