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.

Mosaic Knitting 2.5

Well that whole violet and green thing didn't work out at all. First because there wasn't enough contrast between the two colors so that the pattern stayed unrecognizeable even after thirty rows and second because even on size U.S. 0 (zero) needles the gauge was too loose for clothing.

New plan: thicker yarn in slightly more contrasting colors. I'm considering a double strand of the Speed-Cro-Sheen (can you tell I prefer to wear cotton over wool?) perhaps in combination with my Cotton Twist.
