this post. He's still wearing 'em.)
But a really big part of why I haven't been posting very much since he was born is because there is only one small corner of my home that gets the right kind of light for decent photos (seen here, here, here), but since converting what was our office into a nursery and reshuffling all the extra furniture, that small corner now looks like this:
BUT. I think I've finally figured out a solution and I'm not really sure why it took this long. Shall we practice the new method with a quick Res Completa post? Let's do it.
Pattern: Peponi, by me
Yarn: Wabi Sabi Yarns Glow sock yarn, 1 skein of Orchid
Needles: US 6 (4mm) circs
Start to Finish: A few days in the beginning of June
I whipped this up to display at TNNA* when I noticed that the original golden orange didn't really "go" with the rest of my knits. I am completely in love with this yarn and this color.
And one last item of business: Twitter. I've had an account for a couple of years now, but am finally using it more than once every six months. This week, I've been chronicling my mission to knit a sweater in 7 days (summary: new design almost complete, #$@% lying gauge swatch, gigantic sweater, ripped out last weekend, can it be re-knit in time for TNNA?!)**. Now that I've got the hang of this newfangled Twitter thing, if you want to be friends, please come find me -- I'm @theyarniad.
* Oh yeah! I'm going! If you're going, too, please come say hi -- I'll be exhibiting in the Deep South Fibers section, sharing a booth with Ann Kingstone.
** By far the best, and most unexpected, part of this is that my little brother's friend from college keeps tweeting me things like "PROGRESS PICS!" I had absolutely no idea he had any interest in knitting.
