A meandering blog with no clear topic. You will find me talking about knitting, building, kids, social and economic issues, Alaska, and lots of other stuff.

As you can seen, I got a couple of projects finished: another pair of socks, and a pair of fingerless gloves. The yarn from the socks was something I bought on eBay, and it was not supposed to have a stripe, so I thought it would be perfect for socks with cables. As I started knitting, however, it quickly became clear that it was in fact striping, and stripes don't look so good with cables. So I made them fairly plain, with a wide rib to give them some extra stretch. They are very comfy.
