Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

You've got a few more days still to make your patriotic ponchos.


Aprons.

Shopping bags.

And flattened doily women?

New (to Me) Ravelry Feature

This may be old news but I just noticed that you can now upload photos to Ravelry project pages from your Instagram.

That saves me the step of putting my photos on Flickr to access via Ravelry. Cool!

I finished the most boring hat in the world--plain, gray, acrylic. I knit most of it at the movies the last two weekends. #rosekimknits

I'm sure it's the impending heatwave that makes this Big Ass Knits look even more horrifying.



Wait, no, it's the just the sweaters.

Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

Well, I know what all the gents will be wearing this fall.
Now, how to convince them?

1. Creates a masculine, broad-shouldered look.
2. Keeps arms warm and cozy.
3. Makes junk decorative yet accessible.

RIP Fitbit. Guess I'll be ordering that Apple Watch now. #rosekimknits

Bear Sweater Duet

The Seattle Knitters Guild is knitting teddy bear sweaters for Camp Erin again this year. I didn't participate last year because I was working on other charity knits and there was a devoted fleet of knitters churning out knits for bears at the Guild. This year there haven't been nearly enough bear items knit and I decided to pitch in. I already gave you a look at a hat that I turned into a tiny bottom-up raglan. And I knit a simple bear sweater in Berocco Quasar that I completely forgot to photograph before handing in.

I knit another one in Manos Maxima which I did photograph.

And then I started another one at knitting on Monday but I didn't have any markers with me to mark the raglan increases. Instead I fudged my way through a top-down yoke sweater with roughly the same proportions in the same yarn.

Next I'm thinking maybe one with helix stripes...

Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

Pinterest, I think your algorithm is broken. This was one of my "promoted pins" this morning.


I'm not sure if it was my interest in knitting or jewelry making that made the me an obvious target for this "fashion" line.
