Kerfuffle update, and come steek with me!

I’ve got a couple things going on with my Kerfuffle Cowl and Ruffle Kerfuffle scarf patterns right now. First of all, I’m raising funds for American Red Cross Disaster Relief (Sandy) with 100% of the proceeds from online sales of these two patterns through December 15.

Second, I’m about to cast on for another Ruffle Kerfuffle scarf today. I’m teaching a steeking class right after Thanksgiving weekend at Twisted here in Portland. It’s on Monday, November 26, from 6-8 p.m. We’ll be doing the crochet reinforcement, CUTTING the steek, and picking up the ruffle on the Ruffle Kerfuffle Scarf. Class is $20.

All the knitting is done before class. Yes, it’s a lot of homework, but this gives us time to reinforce and cut. There’s still time to get the homework done; if I can do it, so can you! I was going to do mine on a swatch, but it’s way more fun this way. And I loooove knitting with Malabrigo Worsted.

If you’re local, I’d love it if you join me and be the absolute BOSS of your knitting.

  1. So cute!

    I wish I lived closer…

  2. Sounds fun! The RK will have to get in line though – I’ve got some holiday projects to finish. I bossed my knitting last night. I knit up some fingerless gloves, finished them totally, wove in the ends and THEN measured them against each other. Uh oh. Not same. Dagnabit! I supposed that’s what I get for doing them exactly like the pattern… except for all my changes. Ugh!. So no wanting to take it all back to before the thumb gusset, I picked up stitches on the too short one, clipped the yarn, unwove it one row to get the bottom of the cuff off, and knit DOWN from the thumb gusset to get my proper length of cuff. This time, I compared length BEFORE binding off. LOL They now match. Yay!
