A story...

The following showed up in my inbox a few weeks ago. (Sorry, it took me a bit to get it so it would fit here.)

Patty said I could share it with you, which is awesome, since I know, you'll love it as much as I do.The inspiration part has to be my favorite part.

It is beyond charming. I am very honored by such an artist.  Thank you Patty for sharing your oh, so talented and clever son Brennon, with us!

I think Brennon might need his own colorway and maybe a pair of socks knit out of it!

 

Hi Tina,

My son was illustrating  a story for his younger brother as his brother was narrating it to him.  Hmmm I thought why not do ours. So I told him a short story and he drew it.  My only input was showing him the Ravelry sight and the rest was all him!

Hope you enjoy it.  I am sending you the hard copy but he insisted I send it to you ASAP,  So here I am at work where I can use the scanner to send it.  Please let me know what you think so I can let him know.

PS. my son is 10 yrs old

 

Technical Help----

I just joined two weeks ago. The first yarn arrived. Gorgeous.
My dilemma. Gauge: 31sts to 4 inches.
I am currently knitting on 000. And my gauge is 26st. to 4 inches. My shoe size is 9. Could not even knit the smaller sock as that gauge is 28 stitches to 4 inches.

The newest yarn has an even more tiny gauge of 34sts to 4 inches.

Any ideas. I am a loose knitter, but never have I had to go down 3 needle sizes and still not meet the gauge.

Anyone else in love with the yarn but can't knit small enough, or am I the only one?

Yikes.

Thanks for any help. Knitting on toothpicks?

Love March's color

This is such a lovely color! Will additional skeins be available to purchase at some point?

Help with Cast on March

The only type of provisional cast on I have done is with a crochet chain. I don't think that is the correct way to start the March socks. I checked You Tube and found another way.i am assuming I use the non crochet method. Does the color of the waste yarn matters--since later it says to knit 2 together.

It's that time again

It's the last week of March and you know what that means? All the PDFs are up and ready for perusal and downloading.  Team Blue Moon shipped all the Canadian ( countdown begins Hazel) and International packages on Monday. The domestic ones will be out by end of day Thursday! 

Theres a little guessing game on the backs of the tags this go around. First knitter to get their package, guess the correct missing word and respond here gets a yarny prize.

As always if you have questions or issues please let us know! 

Happy knitting!!

having trouble with the gusset

Hello again

Is anyone else having trouble with the gusset and finding blog posts? Every time I sign in, I can post a blog entry, but still have a hell of a time finding where people posted recently, especially regarding these socks.

The forum only directs me to Camp Jabberwocky and those posts are old.

Anyway, I am NOT an experienced sock knitter, and I cannot tell where I am supposed to be on this pattern at the gusset...the purls seem counterintuitive and I'm tired of ripping out, so have just reverted to a basic sock pattern so I know where I am.

If I didn't like your yarn so much, I'd be disappointed. Looking forward to the next shipment and hope the experience improves. Your customer service has been great in telling me what the different pieces of the website are. I just think what I'm experiencing here with what I want to see and how to get there are different?

I'm still confused.
Thanks for your help,
dina

What hue are you? Reveal Skein #1

 I got Katharine's permission to put her skein here for all to see. If you remember, her entry was about how her family makes up who she is, so that was what she wrote about. This skein is what I came up with based on her story. She loves it and I am thrilled. I am waitng to hear how Karyn feels about hers and I am tweaking Contessa's which turned out to be the hardest. 

 

 

Thank you Katharine for this opportunity to make you into a skein of yarn. Smile
