So, no homework this weekend but I did make a super cute bag. And really, what's more important? I followed the Meema's Marsupial pattern in the first SnB but used Cascade 220 so my finished product is handbag sized. I must say I'm quite pleased with myself. Thank you Emily and Ami for the needles and thank you Reba for the tutorial.

Fluid Knitting

This is Bill. Yes, I know I keep posting to knit knerds as Emily, but we are really the same person so it's okay.

Fellow blogger and knitter Amy Stender of the White River/Hanover area has posted some pictures of a beret she made and I thought I'd link to them if for no other reason than to keep this blog fresh during its fragile "new blog" stage (it still has that "new blog" smell).

The beret post is here. The rest of her blog (which is often about knitting but also about books, science, comics, writing and her personal life) is here.

Queen of the Knerds

So, mostly I'm avoiding homework and web site updating I need to do but...
At our last SnB Emily was talking about how your pattern will come out looking different if you plan on regular graph paper because stitches aren't square. I had some trouble finding knitter's graph paper so I found a picture of some on line, estimated that the ratio is about 1.5:1 and made some of my own damn graph paper! Any way, I made 2 sizes in Excel and also made them available in PDF for anyone who doesn't have Office. I also threw up a knitting icon I found online. Any who, here's where you go:

Test post #2

This is me showing Emily how to post. Just like I do on my blog!

First Post

This is not Emily, this is Bill. This is Bill testing the Knit Knerds blog. Had this been an actual post, information and anecdotes and links would appear in this space instead of my silly blathering. Move along... nothing to see here.
