Even a round or 2 of beading done! Its hard to see, but the cast on is a
bit of an edging. First an Italian (tubular) cast on, followed by 2
complete rows of simple double knitting—a complete row requires 2
passes to “work” every stitch. Then, as I joined ...
The foot of the Tyger, Tyger socks is
almost 6 inches—a nice bit of progress. About 2/3rds done—but
progress will halt—When I get to 7.5 inches, I am going to start on
my next pair of socks, blue ones for myself. I'll bring the Tyger
socks with me on Thu...
A quick little nothing—Knit in a
week, and now a month later finally finished. Fringe is a nice
finishing touch to a garment and/or accessory—but fringe is slow
and tedious to do. This was some of the yarn I purchased on my
Mayday trip to Smiley's closing...
Here they are, completed. It was a
good thing I had my DD try them on—I had added a few extra rows,
and the socks were just short of 8 inches when she did—and they
were still a half inch too short. 8.5 inches of the foot—then another
2+ a bit for the toe s...
Actually, I have met my target--(7.5
inches) but—I am not satisfied. I will do an other 2 or 3 rounds
before I stop. On LEGS, the sock looks long enough to fit, but LEGS,
like most display models, has small feet. For years, the display
size for shoes wa...
By any measure. Just 4 inches. My
size 9 feet need about 9.25 inches of foot in a sock. These socks,
for my DD (and her slightly larger feet) will need 9.5 inches of foot
in a sock (if not even more!) so with 4 inches done, they are still
short of being ...
There are disadvantage to apartment
living—different ones than living in a house with neighbors,
sometimes worse--Like leaks. I have been suffering from my upstairs
neighbors carelessness for almost a month...Intermittent leaks. Over enthusiastic auguring ...

Not quite a polymath, but way more commited than a dilettant, I am one of those people who has failed at specialization.
Currently, I am engaged in pattern writing—specifically for knittng, but I also blog and maintain a web page, make videos, and... the list goes on.
I am occasionally achronisitc, but more often, I am slightly ahead of the curve (for my age cohort) –most often I am 2 standard deviations from the norm!
NYC born and bred, I can't imagine living any where else.
