Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

First off, I need to send out an apology to PDXKniterai. We're in the middle of a transit strike right now, and so my ability to get things done is severely limited. I'm getting paid today, and so I'm hoping to be able to get your package out by Wednesday at the latest. I am so sorry!!!

In happier news, Josiane (winner number 2) met up with me on Friday. We hung out a knit-knackers for a bit, then walked to Aunt Olive's for food where I met her boyfriend and we talked about all sorts of stuff. I gave her yarn, which she's hoping to weave into a scarf for her boyfriend. It was great to meet her!

Saturday was a Christmas party, and Sunday was laundry day, so not much knitting has gotten done. I have been working on my fiancĂ©'s socks, and I'm still hopeful I'll have them done for Christmas. I’m at approximately 6 inches in length for the leg. I’m starting to think about how long these should go. I’m pretty sure I saw somewhere that the leg should be about 8.5”, but now I’ve read other suggestions saying it should be about the same length as the foot, or an inch longer. That would make an 11” (ish) long sock. Is that too long? Or should I stick to an 8.5" length sock. I really have no idea what boys prefer in terms of sock-fit.

I'm also torn about what to start next. Either, Bella Paquita, or the garter stitch jacket from fleece artist. Those of you reading since last year (lol) will remember this gorgeous yarn from my fiancé's parents. I finally feel 'strong' enough in my kitting abilities to work with this awesome yarn.

    No worries! I've been madly working on a Christmas gift for a friend (me, who doesn't do Christmas knitting), and it's going to be my next pattern for sale. You've kept me on the straight and narrow by not distracting me with the new yarn!

    Today's a snow day in PDX, so I've been procrastinating on the Christmas cards, but getting a lot of laundry done...I really need to proof my pattern, though. Have to knit a gauge swatch, first!

    That yarn matches your header. =)

    Also, you should totally knit it. It's calling out to you. ;-)

    Sorry I didn't write again earlier to say thanks and to let you know how great it was to meet you - when I finally made it back home, I had a lot of catching up to do: work, life, Christmas, and snow shoveling - though that one's not quite done yet!
    It was great meeting you too! And thanks again for the yarn - really, I had been looking for the perfect yarn for that project, but I couldn't find anything that was just right... and there you are with the perfect yarn for it! I can't wait to see how it turns out, and I won't forget to send you the link to a picture. Unless I show it to you in person when I go back to Ottawa in March? :)
