I’ve always been sad that I drifted way from this blog and the connections I made through it. A lot has changed since then, like Facebook, does anyone still read blogs anymore? Is anyone still reading this one?
I think I’ve come to a point in my life where I want to make a personal blog priority again, so I have a choice – resurrect this blog or start a whole new one.
Reasons to start a new one
- I’m tired of the “rogue2408″ user name & handle. Though I’m not entirely sure what would replace it. Possibly geekgirl24 though that’s tied to my Etsy shop & some librarians know that is me and it would make it easier for them to find the new blog.
- a fresh start
- new title
- I’m not sure how much knitting there will be and this blog has become mostly about knitting.
Reasons to resurrect this one
- I like it here
- I could just redecorate (new theme & new title)
- already have readers (theoretically, no idea if anyone is still out there)
- When it started it wasn’t about knitting

After languishing in my wip pile during the heat of Georgia summer and fall I finally picked the Seed Stitch Card back up. Everything is done except the button bands and collar. But I think its gonna get frogged.
At first I thought the problem was the yarn I subbed, the pattern calls for Pear Tree 8 ply 107 yards = 50 grams, I used Frog Tree Merino Melange 101 yds = 50 grams.
But no I think I either should have made a size smaller or that I would like it better with a lighter weight yarn (its dense) or its just the pattern. Thoughts?
Its too bulky/loose under the arms
Its tragic really because it is a beautiful sweater and those cables are lovely.
the yarn is beautiufl
and I managed to successfully modify it for long sleeves
I think part of the problem might be how much I still love my central park non-hoodie, in fact if this gets frogged that’s what the yarn will be.

You know what makes me sad? The are only 4 photos in my 2009 WiPs set on Flickr. FOUR photos and I haven’t finished one project! In all fairness the first half of this year was insane! However, I’m taking some steps to taking by my time, including saying no sometimes. I’ve been working on the Seeded Cables Cardigan since January according to Ravelry. Not sure when I’ll actually get to wear it down here, but I know it will love it. The back and right front are done, I’m almost done with the left front. So close! I will finish it by the end of August!
