The new issue of MagKnits is up so go there and take a look when you have a chance. There are three rather intricate looking sock patterns of interest. And beaded fingerless gloves, which between the fingerless and the beads I am a total sucker for!
Also, thanks to those of you who are starting to put pins on my guest map. I like this feature because I know there are a lot of you who probably do not feel like commenting or are a little gun-shy about commenting and so you can go to the map, stick your pin in, and I know generally where you are from without you having to come up with something snarky to say to me. As I think I mentioned in a previous post, sometimes on sitemeter, I'll see that someone has logged in from really far away like Bali, and they actually stayed to read, but I don't know if their server is in Bali or they are in Bali, so the map can help me tell the difference.
I'm almost finished with Callista's yeti dress. No, ladies, much to your chagrin I did not stop and remeasure the gauge, etc. I did not do this because a) she is still growing and though it might be a misled idea, she could always grow into it and b) when I attended a Candace Eisner-Strick workshop a few months ago, she described a sweater that she knit that she ended up having to cut, and just for the experience, if I have to do it, I will. I'm ready to leap off of that ledge.
