Recycling

Monday, March 31st, 2003

I made an excellent discovery over the weekend. I was listening to KSYM, the local community college radio station, which as far as I can tell is the only station in town that is manned by djs. I know that the other stations really do have people sitting in the booths, but they tend to […]

Rules of Engaugement

Sunday, March 30th, 2003

The Cecilia Kufi prototype is a failure. When it first came off the needles, it fit my head every so slightly loosely. Now it’s positively baggy. I need to put some elastic in it to make it wearable. I think my problem is that the fiber I was using, a 80/20 cotton/wool blend, was too […]

Self Portrait 2 and Incompletes

Friday, March 28th, 2003

Here’s a second self portrait showing my current fuzziness. I think I look a little less scary this way. It occurred to me after the fact that taking this in black and white makes it harder to discern what those lumps on either side of me are. Those are all the currently in-progress projects I […]

Marsan Kufi

Thursday, March 27th, 2003

I created a new hat this weekend. It is a combination of Gina’s Kufi Recipie and the Marsan Watchcap. I hope the respective creators don’t mind me appropriating their designs. I added a little beadwork to dandy it up. The inspiration for this cap came from meeting a lovely young woman last week. She’s very […]

Self-Portrait

Tuesday, March 25th, 2003

Here is a self-portrait I took last weekend while I took a break from knitting and video games. I have since shaved the side parts of the beard. I was starting to look a little spooky.

Jacket 2

Tuesday, March 25th, 2003

And here is another view of the jacket I’m working on. Can you see the jacket-ness of it yet? It’s a very cool project, but the garter stitch is a bit stultifying. I’ve been keeping myself distracted with other minor projects, like the hat that Jennifer inspired. I got a picture of the president of […]

Alexander: 01/2003 Oliver: 10/2002 Each one gets a jacket. Here’s the beginning of one. View image Don’t see the jacket in that strip yet? Just wait. I’m working on a patter from “The Knit Stitch” by Sally Melville. Update 3/24/2003: Sorry, that’s “pattern”. I’m working on a “pattern”, not a patter. My verbal skills could […]

Evidence of Aran Progress

Friday, March 7th, 2003

At long last – here’s a photo of the Aran sweater. See, I haven’t just been sitting around idle. I’ve been sitting around KNITTING! The little beaded leather thingies at the bottom are the knitting abacuses (abaci?) Follow this link to see the goods. Be warned; it’s a big file and might take a little […]
