Compulsive Knitter

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt

Finished paper? Check. Successful Thanksgiving and spousal visit? Check. Finished front and back of cable eight? Check. Things are moving along, finally. I now only have to assemble cable eight, but don’t look for that to be finished soon. The instructions say to crochet the pieces together, which I’m not too good at. I considered some other methods, but I’m thinking of trying the crochet first. I ought to google the pattern to see if anyone used a different finishing method.

Today I went to Michael’s to see if I could find yarn for some baby Christmas gifts, but didn’t find what I needed. I may just wait until I’m back in Detroit, where I know the yarn stores better. I did learn something, however. Avoid the area around the mall here on Saturdays close to Christmas at all costs! I’m relieved to have made it back in one piece.

To make up for the lack of bloggage lately, here’s another silly little quiz, as seen at Steph’s (I swear I wasn’t going for the same result; maybe it’s an academic thing):

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

  1. I am Strength! I’ve never seen this quiz before. Very cool.

  2. Hi! I just had to comment on this post, about the finishing. I seamed a sweater today, and used crochet slip stitch to set in the sleeve. I usually crochet any seam I can. First, I can rip it out in a flash if I need to redo it, and second, I read some or other knitter that said it was her preferred method.
    Well, scrap that. I was so disatisfied with the crocheted-in sleeve that I mattress-stitched the second one and compared. The sewn (mattress stitch) seam was so much softer and more invisible than the crocheted one.
    So I’d go with sewing, on the cable 8, especially since you are not comfortable with crochet.
    BTW, I love that cable 8!
