Sockapalooza 4

Filed under: knit-a-longs, knitting, life in general — Marie @ 11:48 am

I’m just dropping by to announce Sockapalooza 4, which I immediately signed up for. I plan on getting back to doing some serious knitting this summer. I’m really looking forward to a few weeks of freedom in May after classes are over, so that I finally have time to knit more often than once every two weeks or so. I’m gearing up to do some conference knitting this weekend (I’ll be in Salt Lake City), but first I have to figure out how I’m going to string the beads I have on yarn to knit this. I’ve heard that floss threaders are good for this purpose, but since I forgot mine back in Louisiana (Yup, I’m home in MI for spring break) I’ll have to think of something else.

In other news, LDH has been invited down for a FINAL interview in my (new) neck of the woods. Keep your fingers crossed at the end of the month for him…



  1. I hope everything goes well for LDH. That would be great if he could be closer to you during your schooling. Did you figure out how to string the beads? I used a bead threader when I knit it up.

  2. Good luck to hubby on the job. As far as stringing beads on yarn, the method I use most frequently involves my favorite product, super glue. I put a little on the end of the yarn and twist it tight and fast (being careful not to glue myself TO the yarn). I repeat this until I have about 1 inch of the end glued and tightly twisted. Then let it dry, and string away. Once all beads are strung, snip the glued end and begin knitting. Good luck.
