I’m willing to bet there are more people reading this post who don’t know I have a Cheesylove in progress. I casted on for this project almost two years ago.
See, the problem is, I miscalculated how much stretch I would lose in the two-color part. And unfortunately, I need lots of stretch in that area.
So, cheesylove went from this to this…
I’m trying to decide if I’m going to knit the two-color part with a bigger needle or if I’m going to increase a few stitches (actually, 12 stitches — that’s one repeat).
Bigger than a breadbox
I got a new toy. A Portable Light Tent. Fun!
One not so small problem. It’s huge. HUGE. Here it is
Granted, it’s a small kitchen. But take note — it’s bigger than the stove. I guess I never really thought about how big 36 inches really is.
The Cheesylove pic I took above was in the light tent. It’s pretty good but I need a couple more hinge lights to make it work well. Still, it’s not bad. Click on the pic to see it larger. You can actually make out the ribbing. In fact, you can even see a few Isabella hairs. Damn cat.
Despite its size the tent folds up compactly — into a carry case the size of a jumper cable bag. It can easily fit in a coat closet or under the couch/bed. The vendor had smaller sizes too if you’re interested but not ready to commit to something this big.
Tubular Bind Off
After reading through yesterday’s comments I decided to put together a slide show on how to do a tubular bind-off. It’s going to take me a few days to get the pics together but I will post a how-to for you all.
