I wanted to post this earlier, but I was trying to post the photos through flickr and couldn’t make it work! It’s not accepting my username/password, which I use to access my blog files normally (ie. upload photos via FTP). It’s not taking my wordpress admin login name either. WTF? Little help?
Anyway, fresh and not so fresh off the needles.
Not so fresh:
Pattern: my own top-down raglan (yeah, I know it looks like glampyre’s, which is cool with me)
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool, 4 skeins
Needles: Denise US7
Finished: November 6, 2005
This sweater’s just right. Cozy, black, easy to wear. Not so good – horrible pilling after only two wears. Sigh. I need to find a good, sturdy, non-pilling yarn for a basic sweater – any ideas? Doesn’t need to be next-to-the-skin soft, since I’d be wearing at least one shirt underneath it anyway. I was thinking maybe Peace Fleece…
Fresh off the needles:
Pattern: basic sock, 64 stitches, short-row heel
Yarn: knitpicks sock garden in “star gazer lily”
Needles: Clover 2.25 mm dpn
Finished: November 10, 2005
I’m almost completely done one of the vera knee socks! Then just the toe on the first one left to go. Another off the needles soon, I hope!
