1. Help!

    I think I’m losing my mind. I’m making the Valois Shawl from Knitscene Accessories 2013. Rows 18-19 are giving me fits though! After the garter stitch border, there are ten stitches on the left needle in the first section, but row 19, as far as I can tell, after counting, recounting, drawing it out, and counting some more, I pretty firmly believe at this point you need to have 11 stitches in the section in order to have the three stitches at the end that you need for a sl 1, k2tog, psso, instead of the two that I’ve come up with. Please please, has someone done the shawl and knows where I went wrong? Or if the chart is misprinted?

    So I’ve been looking through a bunch of my art books lately as part of a book downsizing effort.  I stumbled across this painting in one of them (Painters of Reality, which is online and searchable here) and thought it might be of interest to the readership here, because of the woman in the center.  I’m not sure if this is actually the right kind of thing for this blog, and sadly I am not able to offer any info other than that the artist is Giacomo Ceruti and that the painting is thought to be from the 1720s.

    I tried my hand at dyeing a gradient yarn using Wilton food color paste  for the orange and RIT Dye for the black. They ended up looking like Tiger Static, but I like them. 

    They’re Halloweeny socks for one of my witchiest friend for Christmas.

    Woah I love these.
