If you are looking for the Material Whirled blog, it has moved! You can now find it here. This will now be my more personal blog, The Happy Needle Notebook. While you can still find fibery goodness & MW happenings here, this will mostly be my personal stuff, more knitting & autism stuff and less business-y stuff.
So, with that out of the way, let's talk about what is happening here in happyneedleland. I have become Ravelry obsessed. I have also become sock obsessed. I'm currently devouring Cat Bordhi's New Pathways for Sock Knitters.
I'm still on my first baby sock, and much like when I knit Elizabeth Zimmermann's patterns I am going on blind faith. I know these ladies are way smarter when it comes to pattern writing then I can ever hope to be, so I trust them to lead the way.
I'm headed to Etsy to go buy some alphabet stitch markers -- I tried to make my own, but it was dismal & I just resorted to markers that are dissimilar. Works for the baby sock, probably won't work so well when I need more then 2 markers. I have promised myself that as soon as I finish this pair of baby socks I will go back to my yarn over cable socks that I have been neglecting. But then look out New Pathway book, you are all mine!
