Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

First Mosaic Knitting



I really like this technique. So well that I'm taking my knitting to the office today!

I think the garter-stitch version produces a superior fabric since the stitch definition is better and it doesn't curl so much.

I have visions of an eventual jacket...but since I know of an impending baby I may start with a blanket for practice.

Hey! That looks super cool! I'm going to have to get Kenny, my knitting Yoda, to teach me how to do that!

Thanks for the comment on my blog, BTW. you're a peach! :)

That looks really nice. Can I take a wild guess that the book that's part of that picture so happens to be Barbara Walker's Mosaic Knitting?

Is is any good?

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. Very much appreciated.

And I hadn't read the yarn harlot yet. Must make time to do that. I can't read and knit at the same time.

Oh yes, that is indeed the book:

and it's VERY good--got great how-to and enough patterns to keep one occupied into the next decade. I've already got Post-its all over the pages dividing up the different sections just as I did with my favorite textbooks!
