The journey has been anything but "brainless." I made a comment to that effect on the Ravelry page for this pattern, noting to others who want to use the pattern to pay close attention at the transitions from one section to another. The designer wrote back saying that was why the pattern was called "brainless" and not Brainless. Get it? It's like calling the 300 lb linebacker "Tiny" or a bald guy "Curly."
Hahahaha. Yeah, I'm laughing. Still, the sock is very nice, and I expect the second will be easier, now that I know some of the pitfalls.
And now for some Friday Finds to entertain you as the week comes to a close:
- Girl and Dean have a couple of cheeky little videos made for UK Ravelry Day.
- Knitting Under the Desk has a link to a pattern for a Harry Potter scarf bookmark. You could make a set in all four house colors, or a set of seven, one for each book.
- Knitch online knitting magazine featured an article on Meredith Davey, rockiesfan on Ravelry, who has some lovely glove designs.
- Stephania, Moirae on Ravelry, is getting all sorts of yummy sock yarns ready for Sock Summit 2009.
