Holidays and knitting

Dear blog, It is nearly midnight on December 22nd. Christmas is so close I can taste it. I hope everyone has been having a pleasant holiday season, I certainly have been enjoying mine. There is snow everywhere which is rare for us, and all of the kids are enjoying playing around in their big coats and hats and snow boots. I enjoy being surrounded by my family, we're having lots of fun, eating good food, watching good movies, and trying to learn Na'vi, the language created for the movie Avatar which came out recently. I know it's not knitting related exactly, but I'm finding it to be not only a challenge, but a deliciously geeky past time. I have nothing but respect for the creator of Na'vi, he's clearly a mad genius in my book. I would only suggest that perhaps he need not have tried quit so hard to make it sound so 'exotic'. Today I found out that I am totally incapable of rolling my R's. I spent hours asking other people to demonstrate, and making the most ridiculous noises, spitting, gurgling, blowing raspberries, and in general making a complete fool of myself; Sounding like a dying car engine or an air mattress with a leak. I'm sure this wont be the last of the road blocks in this language's phonology!

I never did post pictures of my fetching gloves. I will get around to it eventually, for now I'll just say I have been convinced in the power of blocking. I used to imagine that blocking was only ever really important when you were knitting fancy things like lace, and I certainly felt that it was unnecessary for cables. However after blocking the Fetching gloves I realize what a terribly ignorant misconception that was. I shall be blocking all of my knitting from now on. (with exceptions for the acrylic stuff, of course.)

I'm nearly done with the Empress coat. I felted it yesterday, and let me tell you the sweating that went into it....
It was so easy. All I did was stick it in a pillow case, put it in the wash, and forget about it. Later after the wash had finished I pulled it out, lay it out flat on the floor, and let it dry. Just moments ago I had my mom try it on, and it seems to be a perfect fit. I can not say how both delighted and relieved I am. Just a few buttons and a quickly knit belt are all that remains before this project can be crossed off my list and graduated to FO status ^__^

FO's for the win

Hey blog!

I'm writing today in a simi-sleep deprived state, after having managed to complete both a pair fetching gloves and a crofter's cowl. I suppose it was only a matter of inevitability that I would screw up. The fetching pattern turned out to be so freaking fun to knit (and such a darn pretty end product to boot) that I started another pair. (Of course my favorite part is the thumb. Maybe I'm just new to glove construction but I find the thumb to be particularly sweet).
Anyway, I finished the first glove, and then started the other (while watching the Syfi movie Alice, and later Bourn identity) And I totally forgot to reverse the cables for the second glove! Sigh. The crux is always in the details, right? I suppose I could have just kept knitting, but that wouldn't have done full justice to the pattern, so I frogged it @_@
I'm much too tired to begin again tonight, but I'm enjoying my little knit marathon. I've got several more projects lined up, including the finishing of the Empress coat and The 9 to 5 socks. ( I know the sock has been a WIP for a long time. And I feel bad about that, but it's day will come soon. )

Pictures and rants about why I now love knitting thumbs in a future post!

Knitting Update

Hello Blog,

Just thought I'd pop in with a little knit update. Making steady, if slow, progress on the empress coat. Nearly done! Just have to seam in the second sleeve, work the collar, and deal with all the finishing. Awesome.

I've also just cast on a pair of fetching gloves. It was only a matter of time, right? Mastered magic loop method for real in order to knit these on size 6 needles, too (my double point needle collection being rather non-existent) . I'm on a bit of a deadline for these so I'm hoping I can finish them by the end of the week.

More knitting when school ends, I hope.

What to do when things don't fit

Blog, it's been a long time coming :

I have finally finished Hey Teach. Sort of. It looks ok, right? I'm not digging the button bands so I'm actually going to rip them out and do them at a smaller needle size. However, there is more...

I should have realized that my abnormally narrow shoulders would probably not be accounted for in the pattern sizing, but I didn't. So I've got a chunk of fabric up there that needs to be taken in. Not sure what the best method for this will be, I'm going to take it to my LYS knit along and pole for advice.

In other news, the empress jacket is also coming along. But more on that in future posts ^__-

Big Project Pending

Hey, Blog. Guess what I scored yesterday?

This is 15 balls of Ella rae classic in color 114. The color is sort of like a muted brick-red with muted purple overtones. It is destined to become the Empress coat which I will be knitting with my LYS's Empress coat knit-along. I'm not really sure how this project happened, I found out about the knit along and within days the pattern and yarn were magically in my possession. Truth be told, I'm not too fond of either the pattern or the color, and wouldn't choose to wear either, but fortunately my mother has volunteered to be the recipient of this item when it's finished, giving me leave to enjoy 3,200 odd yards of stockinet stitch joy ^__^

This project couldn't have come at a more ideal time, either. My argument with Hey, Teach has been putting a dampener on the knitting lately, but with fall quickly turning to winter, and my midterms coming up, (not to mention all the cold rain we've been getting) I think this whole knit along is going to be a real sanity saver!

I've also been making progress on the sock. The real breakthrough was when I finally memorized the pattern repeat. (I know, it's only four rows, I'm ashamed it took this long ) I'm chugging away at the second sock, mere inches from the heel flap

Of course, all of this red yarn is starting to tire my eyes, and I'm really looking for an excuse to knit something else, like this lovely green :

This is a swatch for the Sideways spencer redux sweater. I've been really itching to knit this pattern for a long time. The only problem? I wanted to do it in a dark red, but I think if I buy any more red yarn for a long time I'll be absolutely sick, or possibly damage my poor eyes!
I'm not really into this color as a sweater though. So I think I'll knit a hat, or maybe gloves instead. Something with cables, hopefully.

Hello blog,

Just a quick update. Haven't knit much, Hey Teach is in hibernation.... I've only just now started knitting again (sock knitting!)

Hope to see more activity here soon.

Bad days and religious conversion.

Hello blogverse.

I had a bad day today. In fact, I've been having bad days all week. I don't mean to complain, but I've definitely been off my game.
It all started when I finished blocking Hey, Teach and started attaching the first sleeve. That's when I discovered that I can't sew, that I'm not merely 'a little bad at finishing' but am actually at a disaster level of incompetence, and that no amount of video tutorials or desperate cries for help on the Ravelry forums is going to save me.I am going to have to find a real live breathing person to help me figure this out, which means I will probably have to drag myself to an actual yarn store, which I am loath to do. (I'm kind of a hermit, it's just my nature. )
The Hey, Teach fiasco was just the start of my downward spiral though, I went off my gluten free diet with all the subtly of a starving person and made myself sick within 3 days, my classes are boring, and I don't have enough (stimulating) homework. The fact that I have just written that last sentence in all seriousness is a little scary, don't you think?

But it hasn't been all doom and gloom. I've got some DK weight yarn and a faire isle hat pattern all picked out, all I need is the right needles and I'll be good to go. I started knitting a completely different hat to keep myself happy, and I knit it entirely in the continental style. I think I'm hooked ^__^ I'll be totally prepared to do two-fisted color work when the time comes. The hat in question is the Brainmonster hat, knit in some leftover Vanna's choice, and a few other scraps here and there. My room-mates all think it's awesome, and I have to agree with them.

pardon the horrible bathroom photo 0.o my camera is officially dead, and I am now using my trusty laptop's webcam for picture-taking.....

Blocking today

Hey, Teach is officially blocking. There are no words for how excited that makes me feel ^__^
I'm knitting the XS size, (my bust is like a 33) but when I went to block this I found that all of my pieces were bigger than shown in the schematic (and BTW, what a fun word. Schematic. Yumm. ) Anyways, so I've blocked all of my pieces to the S size measurements. I think it'll work out since I was actually noticing that it might be a bit *too* snug so hopefully it'll all work out.

more soon!

August ends

Hello blog,

It's slow around here. I didn't knit nearly as much during the summer as I had thought I would. I literally spent 5 or 6 hours a day doing Japanese related things, watched an indecent amount of hulu, and I managed to scratch or in some way hurt my eye. After two weeks of searing pain, an eye doctors visit, and another week of daily eye-drops, it has been determined that the 6 months of vision therapy I had last year are wearing off, and my eyes are yet again refusing to corporate. They hurt, I'm getting insane head-aches from trying to read books, or the internet, and my light sensitivity is way high. You wont catch me admitting this to my parents, but the glare from my computer screen is so painful that I've turned the brightness down to only three bars, and hulu is pretty much off limits. (I could force myself to watch it, but it only makes me blind with pain. )

The upside of this is that I've had loads more time to think....and day dream about all the yarn I want to buy/knit with.
using the Techknitter blog and videos from knittinghelp.com I taught myself how to knit continental style so that I could try color work with one color in each hand. I've knit things with two colors before, but in a random method-less way that I don't ever want to revisit. I have a pattern all picked out, (A hat. Surprised?) and some lovely sport weight yarn, but have only just realized that I do not have any circular needles small enough. My smallest circular is US 6, I need US3 and US4. I do have US2 DPNS, but..... I will kill myself before trying to knit a hat on DPNS. I hate DPNS. I guess this means I need to cross my fingers and pray for another knitpicks gift card. (And we wont mention the intense jealousy this recent palette stash has caused me. I'm trying to be a better person )

I *did* recently score the summer 2009 issue of The Knitter magazine, complete with interview with Meg Swansen and Jared Flood. Sweet =)

Also, I'm mere inches away from binding off on the right front side of Hey Teach, which just leaves two sleeves, some button bands, and a whole heck of a lot of seaming. Math has never been my strong point, but why does it feel like I'm still less than 50% done with this project?

The fall Semester starts on monday!

Other fish

Just thought I'd pop in briefly and mention Hey, Teach.

After a month of ignoring this project I'm finally back in the game! finished the back piece tonight and ready for more :)
sixer : you've had plenty of time to catch up, prepare yourself to be left in the dust ^__^

BTW, my camera is still in it's death throes, so the color in these photos are pretty off.....

To frog or not

Hi Blog, Theo here.

I feel as if perhaps I was leading you on with my last post. It's true that the duplicate stitch has seen some success, but in actuality all is not well with the snowflake arm warmers. The yarn isn't actually itchy.....
there's just a lot of tension and it feels.... funny to the touch. But not all the time, depending on the time of day I want to frog it and never-ever touch it again, or I feel that it's actually soft and I'll enjoy wearing it against my sensitive skin.
Furthermore, some days I hate the way the duplicate stitch bunches when I bend my elbows, while other days it seems normal and un-problematic. I'm so conflicted I don't know what to do. Should I dump this project and commit the yarn to something else? (perhaps a fair isle hat?) or should I persevere and learn to love the FO?

I don't know, I feel like I need some distance.

One snowflake.

Hello blog,

I'm pleased to be able to write here today, that I have finally beat teh monster known as 'duplicate stitch'. I consider my completed snowflake as a solid victory.

( I did this while listening to chasing the bard. When they say "not appropriate for the office, we recommend wearing earbuds" consider yourself warned.... )

Once I finish doing the duplicate stitch on this glove, I think I'll finally be able to return to Hey Teach ;)

Duplicate woes

So it's been awhile since I mentioned this swatch :

I thought I had the duplicate stitch thing all figured out. I mean, sure, it was a little ratty, but I did it while watching TV, so the real deal was bound to turn out better, right?

Wrong. OK, maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but this looks like crap. I'm going to take it out and re-do it, but first I'm trying to figure out just what the heck I'm doing wrong. I'm using this tutorial as my guide, and as far as I can tell I'm doing it right..... (except that some people claim that my stitches are twisted, no-one can tell me how to fix that, )

Gack. I'm knitting another swatch, will update later. If you spot some glaringly obvious thing that I'm doing wrong, by all means PLEASE speak up @__@

Movies at Midnight

Wow. So I just realize that this post was never finished and that FO photos have yet to be uploaded. Whoops! Life goes on even when it's not being carefully documented :) here they are at last!


I cast off at exactly 7:36, plenty of time to make it to the midnight showing!


Um, what else? how 'bout some FO stats?

Pattern : Dark Mark Illusion scarf
Needles : US 6
Yarn : (1) Red heart designer sport in Brown, and (1) bernett softee baby in aqua

BTW, the bernett softee is pretty flimsy IMHO. It's a little splitty and lifeless, so despite the very good color selection I doubt I'll be using it again. Sigh. I know, nice acrylic is hard to find. Shocker :)

Dark Mark Scarf Update #3

I have just four days and a little over 90 rows left in order to finish this scarf in time. It's going to be a close one, especially since my summer class starts on monday, so that'll eat up some of my available time. (But I couldn't be happier to be returning to class )

In addition to working on this scarf I've been reviewing my Kanji, thoroughly cleaning my room, and listening to a new audio book called the 7th son. It's one of the best books I've read in a while, it's highly recommended!

Until next time! ^__^

Dark Mark Scarf Update #2

progress continues on the scarf, as you can see. I'm now entering the exciting stripe section. I've also began to wonder if I'll have enough of the brown yarn to finish..... Hmmm.

Nothing else exciting to report, the green yarn broke which is why there are all those nasty lose ends in the picture. I'm working through season 4 of Stargate SG 1 via hulu while I'm knitting this. My life is pretty much awesome ^^;;

Dark Mark Scarf Update #1

Hello blog!

with the help of photoboth I am ready to update you on my dark mark scarf progress ^__^ I'm knitting on this project pretty much exclusively right now, but it's still going at a snails pace. I have 21 more rows to do to finish the first dark mark, then miles of patternless middle, and then a second dark mark on the other side. And there's a deadline. Deadline knitting is kinda stressful but awesome at the same time. Anyways, on with the photos :

Pretty sweet huh? I'm basically knitting two scarfs in one, instead of following the instructions in the pattern for shadow knitting, I'm knitting this with the double knitting technique, so it's reversible ^^;; There's a good tutorial on double knitting here if you're curious.

Looking at what I've knit so far, there are a *few* places in the pattern where I wish I had altered things a little differently, but overall I think it's coming out nice. I can't wait to finish!

That's all I've got for now,

Progress without pictures

Hello guys.

Sad news. My camera is dying. It's slowly, desperately dying. Every now and then I can get a picture or two from it, but it insist that the batteries are dead. No matter how many times I put in brand new batteries, the poor camera just can't go on for much longer.

Even without photos, I thought I'd better post a little update on my current WIP's. I officially have five projects going now, here they are :

1. Swallow tail. Gorgeous project that's not hard, but scares the living daylights out of me anyways. I haven't touched it since december.
2. Nine to five socks. Finished the first sock and am working on the ribbing for the second.
3. Snowball's chance in hell arm warmers. Finished the first glove and am trying to do the duplicate stitch on it. Not going well despite successful attempts on swatches.
4. Hey Teach! I'm doing the armhole shaping for the back piece. I love this project, although I wont lie, figuring out how to continue the pattern during the armhole shaping is a lot harder than the pattern writer seems to think.
5. Dark mark scarf. I finally found some colors that I liked in sport weight yarn. The bernet sofftee that I'm using is too lose and splitty and I don't like it much, but the color is spiffy and I think the scarf will come out decent, even if a little flawed, and I'll love it once it's done.

So, that's about it for now. Hopefully I'll be able to wrangle some pictures soon, untill then

Hey, Teach!

Hello guys.

So, even though I have several projects currently on the needles, I have been looking forward to casting on for Hey, Teach! for quiet some time now. I bought the Yarn and the needles several months ago, but have been waiting to start this project in order to do a knit-a-long with my sister who will also be starting her first sweater soon. (did I mention Hey, Teach is going to be my 'first sweater type project'? ) My sister got the yarn for her project recently and is only waiting for her new harmony wood knitpicks needles to come in the mail to start, so I went ahead and cast on a few days ago. I simply couldn't wait any longer! After all of the projects I've been doing lately on DPNS this project feels like a breath of fresh air. I'm knitting them on size 8 knitpicks circulars, which are like a dream to knit with, and I'm using the new comfy worsted yarn. It is so, so soft. I can't stop touching it and petting it. I love the way it's knitting up (although my gauge seems to keep changing and it's a bit noticeable in some places) I could probably finish this project super fast if I'm not careful, but I'll try to pace myself!



Maryland Sheep and Wool

Hello blogverse, and wow!  I've been extremely silent lately haven't I? Over the next week or so I'll try to update you on what's on the needles, today is the much belated Maryland sheep and wool post. 

So, Maryland Sheep and wool was way back in the first weekend of may. I went on sunday with my room-mate, and if you remember, it was cold and rainy that day. It was the most miserable weather, cold, wet, and MUDDY. Despite this we managed to have loads of fun looking at the sheep and all of the gorgeous stuff for sale.  Although, being an unemployed student did make the trip a little depressing. So much stuff that was just totally out of reach for me. For instance, the spinning wheels. Wow are they pretty! 

Anyways. I wont bore you with much else. Watched the shawl auction which was pretty cool, and BTW the kettle corn there was TO DIE FOR.  This is what I bought :


The candy wrapper came with the yarn. Since the yarn dyer is from Idaho she included the candy with the purchase! I thought that was a very sweet touch ^__^
The candy was.... marshmallowy dipped in chocolate. Not really my cup of tea, but not half bad either!
I love the colors in the yarn and cant wait to knit it!

progress report

Hi guys.

Just thought I'd leave a quick little update. No photos, but the sock is progressing. The mistake wasn't as huge as I thought, only had to go back a few rows and now I've finished the gusset and am working my way up the foot. If I didn't have so much darned school I'd be finished with this sucker already but, there you have it.

Have not actually started on the arm warmer project yet, I need to go up to a needle size I don't have so. Got to get me to a yarn store sometime soon.

Speaking of which, MS&W is this weekend (yay!). Planning on going Sunday, we'll see what happens. Cross your fingers and hope it doesn't rain!

Snowball's Chance Summer armwarmers

Hello Blogverse, Theo here.


My knitpicks order came in today. Two projects worth of yarn, for Hey Teach! (Guess which color I picked.) and for the Armwarmer Project.


I've already started swatching for the arm warmers, but there's a lot of anxiety. Me and math don't really mix well and in order to do this project you have to measure your arm and put in all these numbers. What if I finish it and it ends up not fitting??? Uggh. Angst.

Anyway, I'd love to start swatching for Hey Teach!, but I've got to wait for my knitting buddy to get her yarn together so. Meh. Also, went to Michaels looking for yarn for my HP scarf but the only color they had in the red heart sport weight were pink and green. Pretty but Meh.

soul of disaster

Hi Blog. Theo here. I'd like to report to you a tragedy. Brace yourselves.

So, I 'turned the heel' today, I was really excited because it's a big step and all, I read and re-read the instructions (unfortunately they are a bit vague, the pattern has already been unfortunate in other places as well) . I even watched two different videos on how to do it first.
so I get to the part where it says "knit the instep in pattern, p1 k4" and (after desperately googling to find out witch part of the sock the instep is. Seriously, is that common knowledge among normal people? ) I notice that in order for the pattern to show up on the outside of the sock correctly, I now have to k1 p4 - directly inverse of what the pattern states. Now, I know what your thinking, little red flags should have gone up at this moment, that yellow triangle hazard sign should have flashed passed, but no, no, I had to wait until I had crossed the instep and picked up the other side of the gusset to notice.

Do you see how in the top photo, there's a little row of bumps? A rather attractive row that rises above the knit stitches? That is showing up on the inside of my sock. It should be on the outside. How did this happen? I'm sure I followed the pattern correctly, but at some point I must have turned the sock one too many or two few times, and now I get to experience the joy of tinking back all of those little stitches and starting from scratch. This is a mistake too huge even for 'good enough' person like me to ignore. However (and rightly so, I think. ) I am way too mad to start this task now, so I'll fume for the rest of the night, read my Kanji book, and day dream about picking up a more intrinsically easy and relaxing hobby.

Until next time

Hard choices

Hello Blogverse, Theo here. 

Today I'm having a bit of trouble. I recently got some giftcards as an Easter present, and I fully intended on using them to buy yarn for Hey, Teach! the cardigan I've been planing to knit this summer. The trouble is that I had wanted to order knitpicks comfy in the lilac color, and it's sold out! I don't want to wait until July to order, I'd like to have this project to be knitting during midterms, (because there's so much stockinette stitch, it'll be very relaxing. Just what I'll need! )  The problem is I don't really care for the other color options. I want a bright, cheerful color but the colors are either too bright like October, or Marlin, or else they are too pastel for me, like the honey dew. I also don't want to get a dark color because.... spring should be lighter, right? I let Sixer talk me out of ordering the chocolate brown color , so for awhile I was considering blackberry..... but after all I think that's too dark too. So now I'm thinking about the silver sage....  I don't know what I'll do. Choices, choices! 

I'm also going to order some Shine sport weight to try to do the snowball's chance in hell arm-warmers.  I hope that the cotton knits up OK for gloves. I'd have preferred wool, but the exact color I want is in the shine sport, so that's what I'm getting.

Anyways, I've been wanting to try this pattern for ages but I couldn't wrap my head around the duplicate stitch. For some reason I just couldn't get it, no matter how many diagrams, tutorials, and even videos I watched explaining how to.  However the other night I ran across a blog post by purlbee that changed everything. It's the most amazing tutorial for duplicate stitch ever and I feel really empowered now. Thanks for that!

One sock, and Post Harry Potter Recovery Knitting

Hello, Blogverse. Theo here.

Yeah, I know. It's my third post in one day. But, Shh! don't tell anyone.
I have two things I want to share with you. The first is my Sock-in-progress, and the second one is a little knitting project I'm working on in honor of the upcoming Harry Potter book 6 mutilation flick. (Yeah. Wow. maybe I should tone down that negativity...) 

First up : The sock. 

It's my 'first sock', and by that I mean, after doing a small-scale practice sock, knitting a mary-jane slipper, and completing a pair of socks in DK weight on size 7 needles; I am NOW knitting a sock with actual sock weight yarn. For the first time.
As you may have deduced by now I am  recovering from tragic sockphobia
I'd like you, dear 'verse, to witness my emergence as a bona-fide sock knitter, when the time comes. And that time is quickly approaching. 

Yarn : berroco comfort sock
Needles : US 1

so far so good. Almost ready to 'turn the heel' my palms get sweaty at the thought...

Second : Post-Harry Potter Recovery Knitting.

Yes, I am in Post-Harry Potter Recovery. What does that mean? It doesn't mean that I read Harry Potter once and am now trying to recover from it, or that I was once a rabid fan and am now trying to pretend I don't know who Ron Weasly is. What it is is recovery from the lack of Harry Potter.  With the exception of the 7th book, I have read all other copies at least twice, many of them three or four times, and my favorite, (book three ) seven or eight times. Now that there are no more Harry Potter books to look forward to I am at a deep loss. Do other books even exist? Are they worth reading? How many times can I re-read the series in one year and still be considered sane?  I am slowly, but surely, recovering from the absence of Harry Potter from my life. Slowly, but surely, erasing habits like, the constant urge to say "What house are you in? I'm a Ravenclaw!" at parties, or the desire to quote "nit witt, blubber, odment, tweak!"  while nodding sagely.  

Now, there is one obstacle to my path of recovery and that is the Harry Potter Movies. There are still two more left and despite my (rather strong and negative) feelings about this form of HP media, I have loyally been at every midnight showing, and plan to see the movie version through to the bitter end. 
Of course, you can't go to a midnight showing without some sort of fan wardrobe, I am planning on knitting myself a purple-and-black Dark-Mark scarf. I've knit this scarf twice already and while lovely, I would prefer a more in-your-face obvious design, therefor I have been experimenting with transforming the illusion-knit chart into one suitable for double knitting. 

All I need now is the yarn.


Le slouch

Hello, Blogverse. Theo here.

This is a project I finished awhile ago and have been meaning to take pictures of.  (I apologize in advance for the poor quality. Taking pictures of your own head is an art form I have yet to perfect )
The pattern is Le Slouch; an amazing pattern that I adore. I did some modifications; seed stitch brim, and stockinette for the rest. The most important part though, is the yarn.  Hand spun by yours truely merino/tencel.  

Now, I tried my very very best to take in account for the gauge of the yarn and change up the numbers for the pattern accordingly, however, seeing as my hand spun was uneven and not a uniform weight... all of my best efforts were wasted and the brim is just a tad too wide. I'll need to use hair clips or bobby pins to keep it on. But still, I love it. 


New blog

Hello Blogverse. I am Theo. That's not my real name, that's my nick name. Theo. Nice to meet you.
I am a knitter. I already have a blog, but it's my personal blog. Knitting can be pretty personal, so I generally post about knitting on that blog. Plus, until recently I didn't really knit enough to need a separate blog for it. I still don't knit extremely allot, because I'm a college knitter, and even though knitting is good for procrastinating and reducing stress, it's bad for studying and grades in general. However, summer is coming up (MS&W. Zomg. ), and that means not only will I soon have oodles of time for knitting, it also means final exams. Final exams always make me knit. ALOT.

So, from here on out I'll be documenting my knitting triumphs and trials on this space. Thanks for stopping by and witnessing my madness.


PS. I'm on Ravelry too.
