Argyle’s Continue

First off, with summer here it’s time for a bloggy re-do.  I have changed up the theme, so you may need to clear out your cache if you’re not seeing the changes.  I really don’t have any programming skills at all, but I’m always amazed at how many awesome free blog designs there are for WordPress and how easy they are to change.  Also, with my banner design software, it’s super easy to take a plain banner and mix it up a bit.  Sometimes I think I really could get into this blog design thing.  I would love to learn more about the in’s and out’s, so it’s not all trial and error for me.  I’m thinking of checking out a community class at our local college this fall for it.  I think I saw one over there before.

Anyway, what is everyone doing with these rings ‘n things that are hanging out on the sidebars?  Has anyone else noticed that ring surf has really changed.  You don’t need all these previous, next, random bits.  Click on them and they take you to the ring surf page and you surf from there.  Now the Fiber Arts ring is different – that one works the regular way.  I just think hmmm… with Ravelry now things are changing at least in the sidebar blog world.

Anyway – onto the knitting.  The Argyle sock does continue.  I was telling Julie that I really am finding this project a bit tedious.  When she asked why, I said, well I think it’s the knit/wrap combo.  With Fair Isle you knit wrap and continue knitting until the end.  For some reason I can’t get the rhythm with this.  Maybe it’s the fingering weight yarn.  I’m not sure.

Plus I’m on a production schedule with this project.  I need to have them done by a certain date and really I think I’m a process knitter mostly.  I do production when I have to, but really I think I’m process at heart.

  • The wraps get easier with time, or at least more thoughtless. I was so happy to learn a way around the long floats, that I just grinned every time I did it.
