Traveling Jogless Stripes

Recommended Posts

I sweartogod I want to form a band just so I can call it The Traveling Jogless Stripes.

But seriously, can anyone help?  I just bought the cutest pattern for a "Mary Tyler Moore hat" (you know, the one she flings at the end of the opening credits) that I am very excited to make.  I am a decent knitter, but it has been a while since I've done anything more complicated than a scarf.  This hat has stripes and, obviously, many color changes.  It is knit on round needles and the pattern gives instructions for "traveling jogless stripes."  I have read it over and over but cannot make out what it means.

Never mind--I found a great You Tube video.  Don't know why I didn't think to look there first.  What a great resource for knitting!

I’m not a great knitter but I do love crochet—the Crochet Crowd people on facebook also have a knitting counterpart you might check out. They have a ton of very user friendly videos. It’s how I finally figured out the magic ring. :)

Very Pink knits often has good videos as does Sockmatician. 

You Tube has really transformed knitting and crocheting.  You can learn all kinds of things at any hour of the day, in your own home and if one person's method  doesn't click, there are 15 other videos to try. I love it!

I'm a very beginning knitter even though I've been at it a few years.

I originally took a local class and like the teacher, but I just can't learn from her each time I have a question -- she's more inclined to do it for me, and I can't yet follow along mentally.  Youtube has been my salvation!  I google the thing I want to know, find a video where I can understand the speaker, and then play it about three dozen times, most of them in slo-mo.

I'm still finding my comfortable hand positions and increasing tension consistency and speed -- no colorwork for me yet, or perhaps ever (I'm a solid-color kind of gal.  Stippled is about as much pattern as I like.)  But I enjoy reading about others' projects.  Want to see those traveling jogless stripes!  (the yarn as well as the band...)

I'm currently practicing continental style by way of a garter-stitch lap blanket, plus working on my first post-class pair of socks.   Feeling partly inspired to make myself a slouchy hat as well...

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
