A Series of Tubes

(This post was delayed by many minutes as I had to set up a major search and rescue operation for my camera’s USB cable. My life would be measurably improved if each manufacturer undertook to create their cables a different color, to distinguish them from the rest. TAKE NOTE. And what’s the deal with airline food? Anyway.)

I have been assured that, after washing, blocking, and seaming, these four parts will be joined into a thing that will fit on a person.

Frankly, I have my doubts. But we shall see.

A merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate. And for those of you who do not, I bid you a happy Wednesday Tuesday Eve.

    Told you. Expect the pieces to roll like hell. Blocking will help. Not 100%, but enough to seam. After that, no more worries about the rolling. Congrats on finishing and best wishes with the seaming!

    Merry Tuesday! That is what it will be when you wake up and read this. You have obviously been knitting around and around and around so fast that you have gained a day on us. I have a bit of tubular knitting to finish as well. I hope that you have a great holiday season.

    Ha! I like that explanation better than just having forgotten what day it was!

  • hope the hamsters didn’t get em

  • Yep, that’s a sweater. No doubt about it. A sweater for what is the question. (But I am sure you will enlighten us with finished and modeled photos, right?

    The beauty of USB — Universal Serial Bus — is that it is universal. Your camera’s USB cable and any other USB cable should be interchangeable — UNLESS, the camera manufacturer stuck a proprietary connector on the camera end. That would suck, but it’s totally possible.

    And, early commenters seem confused about what is shown above. It’s a sweater knit flat: sleeve, front, back, sleeve.

    Unfortunately, it’s not the USB end that’s the problem.
