Because it would be a pain in the butt to try to measure out a length of heel color stripe against another stripe, I think I’m just going to start the entire heel over with the next stripe in sequence. Not only will this be easier than measuring, but it will be easy to reproduce on Sock #2.

Today, I was complimented on the policy I have on the Highwayman Armwarmers pattern: Distribute the pattern freely but don’t sell it. You may sell armwarmers made with this pattern if you give me credit for having designed it. Since I don’t plan to make and sell armwarmers, it’s not taking any money out of my pocket if anyone else wants to do so. Feel free! Have at it! Enjoy!

I feel like such a dork saying it, but omg! people are making the armwarmers! I saw someone on the LJ knitting community recommending them, and someone on a UK knitting forum did the same, and someone on Ravelry has cast on for the pattern too! I should probably relax a little bit, but I can’t help squeeing just a little!

It’s still not cool enough to wear the Stripey Striped Scarf, but I’m sure it will be soon! I’ll try to get some pictures of its public debut, possibly under the trees which are just now starting to turn pretty colors.

My wrists have been hurting, so I’ve been trying to knit and type a little less. This is frustrating, but I’d rather take a few days off knitting than have to take a month off after I really overdo it.

And lastly, I know this isn’t exactly knitting-related, but in about ten minutes the realtor is going to pick us up and take us to see our first bunch of houses. I’m *so* excited!

I thought about this for a while and decided that the Highwayman pattern really needed some kind of included copyright information. So I put this on there. Since I don’t plan to make and sell armwarmers, I have no problem if anyone else does – it doesn’t take money away from me. However, it’s important to give me credit for the design. Here’s the copyright notice I came up with:

Important Copyright Information:

You may sell the armwarmers you make provided that credit is given to the Knitting Pirate for the design.

I wonder why most pattern designers don’t want people selling objects made from their pattern?

Thursday night I saw the Yarn Harlot at Borders. As soon as I pull the pictures off my camera, I’ll post them with a recap of the evening. It was fantastic!

hiwymn_platePirate-Husband asked me to design “manly black armwarmers” for him to wear while riding, and explained that he needed something to close the gap between his leather jacket and his gloves. Cables were the first thing that came to mind. He liked them so much that I made a pair for myself as well! These are just the thing for scenic motorcycle rides in the country – or blustery fall days in the city. Made of 100% wool, they are warm without being too bulky, and fit tightly to help keep the wind out.
