Today’s segments include: drafting, Gen Con 2013 top ten, and noteworthy. Let’s knit together!


Vanilla socks top down with a heel flap and gusset. In Desert Vista Dyeworks Zien colorway Nashville Nights on a size 1/2.25mm signature circular.

Ruislip hat by Wooly Wormhead in my handspun! Corriedale Children of Time, about 200 yards of DK weight.

Goodale Cardigan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald in Sanguine Gryphon Bugga colorway Northern Purple Gold Beetle. It’s a top down cardigan. I am really enjoying knitting it so far! This is my Nerd Wars dissertation, which I am submitting for Encyclopedia, O is for Origami, since you fold the fabric over to make the pockets on the Cardigan. I finished the body and now I just need to work on the sleeves and the finishing.
