Angela, thanks for the beautiful LO pics!
I love all the WIP pics!
Amy, stick to bland & BRAT (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) if in doubt.

gotta run...sunshine and 60 degrees is calling...

I like twisted cord too..

My notes..

I modified it a bit. I casted on 100 stitches with size 7 needles and only repeated 13 times in row 5 and then repeated 14 times in the last row 7 it tells you to repeat

Grrrrrr don't you hate it when a yarn behaves so nicely for the body and even the gusset (no pooling at all it looks great) and then you move to the legs and it pools awful. I am fighting with blooming now I *think* I may have fixed it but I need to knit a bit further to really tell.

Yes. I usually have the opposite problem though.

What's brown sugar bacon?
I was a veggie for 15 years, and then when I was preggo I started eating bacon I won't eat any other pork, but I still eat bacon now!

Love those!
The colorway part does look a little bit blurry...but I'm not sure if it's because all the colors are playing tricks with my eyes...like when you are looking at something striped.

for badly behaving wool!

So you guys know what TIG Carys BFL is like?

I'm ordering my stuff on Lindon because I've heard that is great, but I have no idea what that is like either!

Ok those of you who use the lucet, is it really any faster than i-cord? It looks like it would be more difficult to me

I think that could be it because I took a picture of something else and it looked clear.
