Off the needles…

My Flow top is finished. I think it turned out pretty well. I am glad I added to the length or it would definitely have been too short for my tastes. I made the straps two stitches wider than the pattern called for as well, and I think that was a good choice.

I’ve started working on some boot toppers knit in Cascade 220. I’m following the Simple Cable Knit Boot Cuffs pattern. I’ve finished one cuff so far. I’m a little worried they are going to be too loose even when worn over jeans, but we’ll see.

I haven’t decided yet what to knit with my skein of Vivax. The colorway is a mix of cream and a gray/green color. I was thinking about knitting the Flora Cardi, but I’ve had second thoughts. I’m worried a lace-weight cardigan won’t be very practical. So, I’m off to Ravelry to hunt for another pattern.

Speaking of Ravelry, how is everyone feeling about the recent color/style changes? It seems like a lot of people are pretty upset about it. Personally, I found it a little jarring at first (and missed the old logo!), but now I’m getting used to it, and I think I actually find the pattern and yarn search pages easier to navigate. I guess some people find the new design harder to use, and some people have said that it even gives them headaches or makes them feel ill. Ravelry is now allowing people to switch to the old look, and toggle back and forth at will, so I should think that would solve the problem for people who feel they can’t use site with the new design. I’m planning to stick with the new look.
