Sometimes I think about what to write in the blog off and on all day. I compose paragraphs in my head, edit and rearrange them. Then later in the day when I usually actually write posts my brain seems to think I have and just stops thinking about it. Or it starts to shut down before I have photos edited and time to sit and type so I succumb to the need for sleep instead of the urge to post. A lot of good blog fodder misses it's chance to actually get used.
It would help if I could actually write a short post now and again.
On Sunday I met up with some of the other Seattle knitters in the NaKniSweMoDo Ravelry group. I think everyone else who showed up had met at least once before. They picked a convenient coffee shop as I walked one block to the bus and got off right next door.
I already knew Jessica (Ravelry link) from Guild. I finally got to meet Dorothy (Ravelry link) in the flesh. Thanks for organizing the details, Sharon (Ravelry), and let's do it again. Five of us made a nice sized group for conversation. Amanda (Ravelry) made the fifth. (Now I feel a bit better about the state of my blog posting after looking at everyone else's.)
The weather felt very appropriate for knitting on my cozy cardigan. I got snowed on a bit while I waited for the bus home. The photos are from that evening. Half an hour after the sun break (a Pacific Northwest weather term) fog and snow moved in with the dusk.
I cast off the second sleeve on the ride home so now I'm motoring down the body. At least I'm motoring until I get to the point where I want the pockets. I want to try out the technique for double-knit pockets Lucy Neatby showed at the class I took last year at Madrona. I know I'll need to dig out my notes and find the relevant DVD so I can figure out what to do. I know I'll need to redo something at least once. The process is a bit fiddly but it results in a beautiful pocket.
