Knitting accomplishments.

In 2009 I pwned that four-row lace pattern on the chemo hat.

Not pwned:

Encouraged by this tiny success, I engaged another, quasi-lace project, the Montego Bay scarf. This was an extremely complicated pattern, involving two (2!) stitches, repeated but offset over a two-row (2! row!) repeat.

After the catastrophic mental strain of the Montego Bay, I conquered short rows heels and toes and learned how to do them so I didn't get holes.

Before:                                                          After:

And then I took it easy for the rest of the year, knitting perfectly ordinary hats and socks and scarves. The end.

    After all that mental strain, the rest was well deserved! 8)

    So, what’s the trick to hole-less short row heels and toes? They don’t fit me well but I’m damned if I can get them to look good.

    Wonder what you’ll try this year. . .

    I knew you could do it!

  5. Dude, if you’ve mastered the short row heel you get to take off as much time as you like. That is a rule. Heck, it should be a law! Happy New Year!

    Oh, I was recently thinking of making the Montego Bay and wondering if I would be able to tolerate the complicated pattern 😉

    Hey, have you ever considered a career as a surrogate knitter for bloggers who purportedly have knitting blogs, but really get no knitting done anymore? 🙂

    Love the trim on those chemo caps! Montego bay hurt your brain? I’ll admit I had to start it, oh, maybe 4 times… but once I got going it was all good. Until I made the second one, which I also started more than once.
