Into the Unknown

We got chatting about Maine and the move and other big 2022 events… Puddles 10-year gotcha anniversary ☹, and cough, turning 40, cough. She threw out “into the unknown”. And ya know what, it was perfect! Not a daunting kind of ‘unknown,’ but a year of adventure in stitches which didn’t restrict the creative juices to one particular cast on / bind off method. “Into the Unknown” was born with joy and friendship, new possibilities, and future new locales!

Grafting Trick

One of the things I hate to do is undo the provisional cast on in order to graft. So I spent some time trying out different methods to see just how required it is. For visible seams, it’s worth it, but for ones nobody will see, check out this trick instead! https://www.instagram.com/reel/CWZJEeOJqzt/ The Instagram reel was filmed with dear sweet Puddles and since I can’t recreate that, I decided to post the reel into a blog instead of remaking it for you tube.

My companion and joy, one of God’s best temporal blessings in this life, our GDCJ, the branch manager of monumental size branches, my Great Dane knitting “blanket”, my sweet boy would have been 10 years old today. Instead, he is running free on the rainbow bridge with my first Great Dane, Cheeky, his cousin, and Osgoode, Chudleigh, and Pumpkin.

This Is Not Your MKAL

As the reveal of Terran is just around the corner, Puddles and I wanted to “paws” and take a look back over the design process of it. With over 1.93 GB & 490 files in the design folder and 11.9 GB & 969 files in the media folder (!!!!) there is a lot of Terran that you will never see, including some really adorable Puddles WIP photos. He said share the picture love, human! So, journey back in time with us as we take a look at “this is not your mkal” and the frogged and forgotten stitches of this MKAL design.
