6 April, 2008 at 10:10 am (caturday, knitting)

lots and lots of other things. I’m knitting up a storm in an attempt to clear some WIPs before I start some other things that I’m desperate to get to.

So I’ve got one blue stocking down:

and I love it. Absolutely adore it. It fits perfectly, mostly because I changed the pattern a lot in the calf/cuff; once I finish the pair I’ll write up the mods. I’ll get better pictures once they’re done, too, and let’s not talk about the contortions I had to go through to get this one.

(Looking at it now I’m wondering if maybe I should’ve tried to squeeze a third repeat into the back panel. Hmm. Perhaps I’ll block it and frog back if necessary… no. No. That is crazy talk. They’re fine the way they are. I have other things to knit. Must not rip back a day’s worth of work just to be a perfectionist. Must. Not.)

No sweater jacket progress, still, although I’ve been working on pattern grading. I’m hoping to get back to the knitting part of it this week, though.

In other news, the cats have officially been introduced.

This makes life… interesting.
