a few quick things

This is the sample of a pattern I hope to publish soonish.

This is Fireweeds in Spud & Chloë fine, which I’ve been working on for the last couple of busy days.

This was my snack this afternoon. God bless pre-packaged rice krispies treats. Image

 

This is the yarn I bought today. 3 skeins of Colinette Jitterbug, a skein of Imperial Yarn Tracie. All lovely. 

Not pictured includes my hellish day of travel to Arkansas earlier this week, and the ridiculous amounts of busy I have been in between. 

Good night. 

 

twist

Apparently, doing a long-tail cast on unplies S-plied yarn. This usually isn’t very noticeable, but becomes a distinct pain in the ass when you have to do a 350+ stitch cast on more than 3 times, because your tail is never quite long enough. 

I can’t figure out if the twist issue is due to my technique or the cast on itself, though the lack of similar reports point towards me doing something wrong. Oops?
