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.

Stitch Comparison:

These guys are VERY close relatives:

Ballband Dishcloth (from Mason-Dixon Knitting)

"Big Dotty" piano bench cover stitch (also from Mason-Dixon Knitting)

They are the same process carried out over differing numbers and types of stitches.

The dishrag pattern is two rows of plain stockinette stitch with one stitch out of every six slipped over three additional rows of reverse stockinette.

The dotty pattern is two rows of garter stitch with two stitches out of every eight slipped over six additional rows of regular stockinette stitch.

Therefore if you can do one, you can by definition do the other. Cool or what?
