Being at the totally amazing location of the Marin County Civic Center, I had get special pictures of everything I’d knit that I had with me. This one had been photographed before, but I felt like this needed another try, it’s hard for a person to be model and stylist at the same time.

So I knit these originally a long time ago, and was very happy with them at first, but then they started slipping and slouching. I really didn’t want it to be a wasted effort (and I love the yarn), so I took out the foot and knit 4 more tiers of entrelac with 1 less stitch per block. It pulled in the ankle nicely, and voila, leg warmers!

I discovered that my leg warmers are also quite reasonable wrist/arm warmers.

I made a tiny baby robot similar to others I have knit. This time I experimented with a different looking arm/hand-claw design. I was going for the traditional Robby the Robot kind of arm.

These weren’t the only moments of knitting in Y The Last Man, but two of my favorites. Love knitting!

I was just trying to get some picture of this skirt, but I eventually ended up getting better ones later.

Trying to get a good pic with the phone … nope, not really. (Ravelry)

This is the first picture of a subsequently much photographed skirt.

Johannes gave me this fabulous yarn last time he was here, thank you so much! I made Sideways Grande Cloche from Boutique Knits. I like it a lot! It’s knit sideways, as the name implies, with the last few inches knit on a smaller needle to draw the fabric in. This makes the hat comfortably slouchy in the back, but pulling it up off the face. Brilliant! The “cable” is just two stips wrapped around each other and sewn down. The book says 3 twists, and I thought I did 3, but it looks different than the book. I guess I count my twists differently. I should have given mine an extra twist because it doesn’t seem quite firm enough (it occassionally comes untwisted slightly).
All in all, a fast satisfying knit!
