Stormy Weather fronts and Periscope Experiment

Woohoo!  I took advantage of Tom’s being on vacation and we got busy on the Stormy Weather fronts and Periscope Experiment. Sooooo, a stumbling block has been surpassed. Two blocks, actually . . .

  1. Stormy Weather progress is being made, I knit the Stormy Weather fronts after knitting the back in September 2014!
  2. Videotaping has commenced, and we live broadcasted as a periscope experiment. I haven’t watched the replays, but Tom said he stuck his head in there a few times while I was busy. That Guy!

What is Stormy Weather?

Published in Knit ‘N Style February 2014 – #189, the Stormy Weather Tunic Hoodie is designed by Mary Anne Oger. It is knit in Linen Concerto, which has the appearance of being hand-dyed. What makes the design unique is it is knit sideways.  Mary Anne takes special care when designing so the colors match up at the shoulder seam. In other words, when Mary Anne says to do something, there is a reason to do it and don’t ignore her advice like I did. You may want to take a moment and read through Mary Anne’s hints on her blog, Needles To Say. So much good machine knitting info and inspiration there.

My colors don’t match at the shoulder seam. I didn’t care when I started knitting it, but now? Back in September 2014 when I started this project and knit a size too small, I blogged about a group knitting session and I asked the question:  Do you find you have to tear out after group knitting session, hand or machine?

What is Periscope

Periscope is a way to video stream something immediately and it is saved for 24 hours viewing in the app for later. It was so much fun!! The problem I found that I want to use it as a streaming class mechanism and it is a two-man operation. Here’s the Katch.me Collection for the right front, left front, and shoulder seam [which I’m going to redo, the shoulder seam only, not the knitting]. But I’m debating: mattress stitch by hand or seam on the machine?? I LOVE mattress stitching by hand!!! What would you do?

ClubKnit Update

Finally, I’m moving along on the clubknit.knittingtoday.com knitalong pages. And the subscriber dashboards are coming together in my head. We’re going to go ahead and launch a new knitalong, the Mystery Yarn Club, within the next couple of days. Let me just suggest, if you haven’t already, that you join as a Beta-Subscriber. It is only $50 and they will get not only first dibs on the club, but they will get no less than $32.75 value by already being a part of that exclusive Subscriber membership. That’s a huge savings over the course of the year and a couple of projects.
