Bits and Pieces
After all the worry, there's not a flake of snow on the ground here in Hendersonville. There may be some in Asheville, and up at Biltmore, but not enough to hamper our plans. It may snow later, and my flight tomorrow might be affected, but I'll worry about both later (when worrying might actually do some good... snort).
At any rate, here are a few bits and pieces from SAFF and this trip.
I applied this temporary tattoo on Friday- it's still bright and clear.
The Ravelry party on Friday evening.
A wonderful needlefelted sign- a gift from my friend DeeAnn
Condom dress in a window in Asheville!
A single solitary Yarn Bomb!
DeeAnn and me together after 42 years!
SAFF Booty- have I shared this yet? I can't remember. If I haven't: yay. If I have, oh well.
It's time to hit the road- I promise many pics of the great big house, though they may not be posted tonight, and I have to leave for the airport by 4am tomorrow... (I hope).
Diamond Rib Lace Sock
Rnd 5 of the lace pattern should read:
Rnd 5: YO, SL 1, K1, PSSO, K 2, YO, SL 1, K 1, PSSO, K 2 , K 2 tog, YO, K 2
The Chart on page 116 is correct, though the Legend should read :YO, SL 1, K1, PSSO
Round Worsted Weight Afterthought Heel Sock
Add to Toe Instructions: Decrease as for the heel.
Next Rnd Heel Division should read:
K 12(18, 22, 24, 26, 30), sts, place marker, K to end of rnd.
Round Fingering Weight Afterthought Heel Sock
-page 32, 33
Page 32 Next Rnd Heel Division should read:
K 18 (22, 26, 30, 32, 36), place marker, K to end of rnd. Page 33, Add to Toe Instructions: Decrease as for heel.
Clarification : All foot measurements in the instructions are to be measured after the heel is finished. Measure the foot flap and gusset heel socks from the gusset edge, and measure the foot for short-row heel socks from the first full round after completing the heel.
When you come upon instructions that say knit as for, referring you to a different pattern for the next step (for example, to the 40 stitch flap and gusset heel), knit that portion of your heel as you would for the referred pattern. In other words, knit it in the same manner, using the same short-row technique as in the referenced instructions. Knitting "as for" does not mean that you are to use the same number of stitches (which would be impossible, since only the 40 stitch heel uses forty stitches). Work the first two rows of your listed heel instructions, and then continue in the same manner as the 40 stitch flap and gusset heel (in other words, work one more stitch on each row, before doing the decrease and turn), until you have worked across all of the stitches.
Listen to the Knit Picks Podcast Interview
40 minutes of me blathering on and on while Kelly Petkun of Knit Picks asks some very good questions. Twice.
You (individuals, not companies or corporations) may knit as many items from the Freebie Friday patterns (or any other original free patterns posted here) as you like. You may sell those items and make a bazillion dollars doing so. I would rather you didn't repost the pattern pages, or print them to hand out to others. Link to here so people can download their own copies, please. I would also prefer that you not teach the patterns as classes without contacting me first about it. Crediting the design and designer would also be nice.
I would love for people to send me jpgs of items knit from the Freebie patterns. I'll post them if any come in.
I'm a writer (6 mysteries, one mainstream novel, 5 knitting books, lots of designs and reviews, paper dolls, blather), wife, mother, and grandmother. I knit, I watch TV obsessively while I knit, I spin, I read, I listen to music, and I talk. A lot.
