Tuesday’s Stitch and Chat…
She was all set on her Two Harbors Poncho, really knit a lot. Jane wasn’t kidding when she said she was happy to be knitting again, she made awesome progress since last week.
Next she wants to knit a cover up. In preparation, she is going to knit a long swatch sampler in a yarn she has copious amount of, to see what stitch she want use.
She asked me to measure it. I brought out a tape measure.
Allison said, “That’s a good idea”.
Me: “Versus what? How have you been measuring it?”
Allison: “Eyeballing it.”
It may not be as funny in retelling it. We got a good laugh out of it. Maybe you had to be there. It was still a blogworthy moment. The poncho went off to the finisher.
We had a discussion about organizing patterns. Especially if you are a paper person. Eileen and Lois much prefer to sift through printed patterns than virtually online.
Eileen has folders with tabs so she can flip through patterns by category.
Lois created a binder with tabbed dividers.
I do use Ravelry to organize my pattern interests. Patterns that I have printed are sorted into dividers. I am considering going through all the paper patterns and if I have a online copy, I’ll toss the paper and reduce how many binders I have. Then I can use the Ravelry search filters when looking for a pattern.
