I'm still catching up on bloglines after a week of vacation. If you want eye candy and can't read french, check out
Beautiful stuff. Fair isle galore!


I believe that Emily Post would say that Roger's brother's wife is actually not your SIL, but no relation at all. No slight intended to Roger's brother's wife, I'm sure. I forget why we looked this up once, but we did, in an old etiquette book. Maybe the rules have been updated since.

I love that Coriolis sock, but I'm not keen on making a sock with yarn held double. I'm not at all sure I want that thick a sock. However, increasing that way is a cool idea. And I would have to Magic Loop it, because I always do.


The construction on that sock looks really interesting, but I'm afraid I can't quite understand how it's done. Guess I'll have to do it myself one of these days.

For the last 2 months or so Bloglines hasn't been updating my Livejournal blogs regularly. The rest seem pretty timely, but all my IRL friends use Livejournal and I'm forever behind on their news.


I'm fascinated and intrigued by that sock's construction. So cool!

Btw, I'm new here (from Summer of Socks), so this is out of turn, but I love your handspun!!


You are officially my sock knitting idol. I have all the knitty gritty's tapes so I'll have to go home and search for that episode.

I'm plannign on swatchign for my sport weight sidewinders tomorrow. I've read your interpretation about 5 times over and I think I understand what you did. Do you think I can use the magic cast on instead of the turkish one when starting out?

By the way, how's your spinning coming along?


I wanted to do the Coriolis too, but wasn't really in the mood for knitting with two strands. I'm sure I'll get around to trying it eventually!


I have to try the Coriolis now, too. Another thing to add to the list :0


You point out an awful lot of interesting things on this blog you know. Now I've got to remember to look for that book when it comes out. I better start a list.


Wow that was fast and such a cute sock! Thanks for the link to the coasters. ;)


I am catching up on bloglines tight now (type faster, read faster!) Love the pattern modification, although the little toe hatch was amusing in it's half-constructed state, doing without it - genius!
