Yarn Along: Technical Difficulties with Photos and Knitting

Hello! I've been having a few technical difficulties. Namely, blogger says I have no more space to upload photos.  I knew this was coming, but I haven't yet figured out what I want to do about it.  It's probably about time I migrate to self-hosted wordpress.  I've been putting that off because it's not something I can figure out on my own.

In knitting news, as I continue my obsession, I took a short break from my garland to make this cable-braided cowl out of the soft seafoam aqua yarn impulse buy.  I totally messed up the seam...it was supposed to look completely seamless, but it ended up backwards somehow so it's a stripe of purl stitches where it should be knit stitches.  On one side I tried reversing the kitchener instructions (purl, knit, knit, purl instead) but ended up with the same result.  Oh well, it is still soft and cozy and beautiful.

Wearing my first ever knitted wearable item: a cable-braided cowl. Cozy!

As for what I'm reading...Still working through Legally Wed by Patty Froese.  When I say working through, I mean finding time to sit at the computer to read and knit. It's a wonderfully engaging book.  The December/January choice for book club is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, so I'll start reading that soon.


PS: I just started another cowl project and discovered that after a good 5 years of hanging on to this yarn waiting to figure out what to do with it...I hate it!  I'm not sure if it that it's acrylic and I just miss the feel of wool, or if it's all the nubbiness that hides the stitches (that I like to show off now that I've learned how to knit properly with uncrossed stitches.)

  2. Looks soft and comfy; makes me wish I knew how to knit! And I didn't know you could run out of room for pictures on blogger. I don't know what I would do!

  3. I love that cowl you made! Looks so cozy.

    I use flickr to host all my photos, it's a pretty cheap yearly fee and has been pretty good to me so far.
