On Ice

Hi, Everyone! Thank you all for the nice comments and all the Ravelry hearts on Baudelaire. The weather finally turned cool enough around here for me to wear it a couple of times, and I'm very pleased.

I'm sorry about the long blog absence. It's been nonstop around here, and I haven't gotten much knitting in. On a recent trip, I did manage to resurrect a WIP: my double knit scarf. The problem was that I made a mistake when I logged my needle size into Ravelry. I put that I had used a size 5 when I actually used an 8! It's been so long since I worked on this project that I didn't realize my mistake until I looked down and saw that my stitches were a lot smaller than they had been. Oops!

In truth, I think I like how it looks on size 5s better, but not enough to start from scratch. Right now, the scarf is in the freezer. Several years ago, I read that it's easier to frog Kidsilk Haze if you freeze it first, and that tip has seemed to work before.

I really am trying to stick to my plan of finishing up some WIPs before casting on more things, but I don't know if I can pull it off. Meanwhile, I've got some other non-knitting things to share with you in the coming days.

  1. I haven't heard of freezing KSH, I can't wait to hear if it works. But still, I feel for ya!
