Well...now you have a face to put to a name.
Joe-in Wyoming's blog
Okay, you gents. I am now on Ravelry. Still Joe-in Wyoming, all one word. [Why won't they take my spacing?
Quinton beat me to it but here's my "Thank You" to Brady and Frank for the great Knitting Retreat and all their work to make it happen.
The Pointer Sisters song title says it all. Less than 24 hours until Quinton and I leave for Rocky Mountain Men's Knitting Retreat.
Well...the tie was knitting up fairly well.
I am planning to knit a pair of socks [Quinton would now be saying, "Of course."] but the change is that I'm using a commercial pattern vs. designing my own. [Okay, pick up your jaws - and knitting needles - off the floor.] It's the traveling stitch design from Mountain Colors for the "Jonesy's Toe-up Socks." I'll be knitting from the top-down, adapting the twisted stitch for my lefthandedness, and think it will be nice in the jawoll yarns colorway of muted blues, greens and browns.
Finally started the bow tie I mentioned an interest in last January on another posting. The KnitPicks pattern is not as well written as it could be since it is very yarn specific for their product. Plus, I feel the gauge notations [which were already updated once] are all gobbledy-gook...my gauge swatch didn't come out to their specifics but, if it had, the finished tie would be appropriate for a clown's costume.
I just read about a new Ann Budd book, over at 'Knitting Daily', where she had sock designers contribute patterns.
I just got a KnitPicks Harmony 40" circular needle in 3mm [the larger US2] last night.
Just saw the news release that a great actress and humanitarian has died. I'm not surprised, given her ill health for many years. Still, she will be missed.
