Having to create this page is an admission to what appears to be “looming dementia.” All too frequently, I remember reading really neat stuff out on the internet, often on someone’s website or blog. And as I’m reading it, I think to myself, “This is great. I’ll refer back to this often, ’cause it’s so informative, accurate, handy, too complex for me to remember.”
And then, when I actually need the information, I remember that it’s out there, I remember reading it, I remember recognizing that I would refer back to it, but for the love of lemon meringue pie, I can’t remember where the hell I saw it. (This would be easier if I only read 2 or 3 blogs, and instead of playing on the computer, I scrubbed my kitchen floor more often) I once went practically certifiably loony trying to find a blog post that reviewed knitting charting software. It took days before I found it again, and now, sadly, I’ve forgotten who posted it again (but I do remember the recommended program’s name!!)
So maybe I can keep a list here of the really neat stuff that I expect to need again. (If I remember to keep adding the links, it’ll be great!!)
- Judy’s Magic Cast-On — Recommended by Wendy for all her toe-up socks, and who would disagree with Wendy on sock construction?
- Children’s Simple Mitten Pattern – Great for charity projects. I’ll never find this again!
- Short-row for Toe-up Socks – looks really neat, once you get good at it!
- 2 Toe-Up Socks on 1 circ – Magic Loop – I would never remember where this is! With MANY pictures, the complete directions for getting 2 toe-up socks started on one long circ. Lots of picture support for short row heel and sewn bind-off. Wow, I don’t want to forget where this is.
- Jogless Stripes on your Socks – Grumperina SCORES again with her way to spiral several colors up a sock, easily, without a color-change job. Brilliant. Her following post gives more instructions and photos.
The current time in Sydney, Australia is found here http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=240
Really neat patterns on other people’s sites that I have to make and will forget where I’ve seen them if I don’t put them here.
- Cookie A BFF sock patten - top-down, every other rib has a cable twist. 56 st.
