Knitting Notes

You may remember that a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive a Pop Rocks chocolate bar and some stitch markers from Mel. I won't rehash the backstory here and now, but it all originated with a Ravelry train wreck.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a great picture of Mel's stitch markers, but here's a mediocre picture of them.

I can only pray that Mel will forgive me for such a bad picture of her absolutely BEAUTIFUL and ADORABLE work! I really love the stitch markers that designate the left- and right-side of the work.

If you want to see good pictures of her work, please visit her etsy site, which is located here.

And speaking of Mel, she's just been through a bit of a mess on Ravelry. I am happy to say that it's been sorted out, thanks in part to TPTB (the powers that be). So why am I telling you about it? Because a yarn store owner behaved badly. And I want people to know about it. For the full details, see this entry in Mel's blog.

And in non-Mel-related knitting news, I thought some of you would appreciate this recent exchange between Brook and me on IM:

Brook: weavolution.com Like rav for weavers. Just for future reference. ;) (i just signed up)
me: I'm not a weaver!!! And you're not turning me into one!!!!!
Brook: you said that about spinning
me: Shaddup
Brook: :D


  1. I couldn't figure out what L & R stand for - you need to put them on the appropriate side of the picture for your speshul friends

  2. Those are terrific!
    I love the idea of Left and right. I often use different colored markers for this, but if I wait to long between workign on a project, i forget which color is for which *doh*
