Yarn Along Jan 30

yarnalong_gsheller_grayIt's Yarn Along Day again. Ginny from Small Things loves to see what crafters all over the web are knitting and reading so every Wednesday we all photograph our projects and the books we're reading. If you're a crafts blogger you should join us. It's a fantastic way to discover new blogs to read (and books too for that matter).

I've had to pull out good old June again. That's right. I needed to use the Principles of Knitting by June Hemmons Hiatt. It's my knitting bible now, for all things technical about knitting. I'm still plugging away at the Shakespeare Cardigan, but I'm sick of taking photos of it so instead of I have my Multnomah Shawl.

Anyhoo, I needed June to answer a question about decreasing. On the Shakespeare cardi, you have to decrease a bunch of stitches evenly across one row and it didn't specify what kind of decreases to do or in what intervals. I consulted June. Alas there was no mention of evenly spaced decreases in the index that I could find and I didn't have the time to read the whole section on decreasing to find out if it was there anyway so I turned to the trusty interwebs. They didn't fail me. There's this nifty calculator that makes the math easy for you. It saved me from a serious headache.

What are you knitting and reading these days???

That website is awesome :) It's like someone read the minds of knitters and did all the math for us!

I have made the Multnoma shawl and it turned out very nice. It's a good pattern.

What's going on now?

Husband is employed. I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
