Does anyone know of such a thing?

OT - Protecting Your Privacy

Lucinda Shastid
 

from the WaPo today,

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2018/12/30/fake-porn-videos-are-being-weaponized-harass-humiliate-women-everybody-is-potential-target/

Basically, people can put their victims' faces onto porn videos.  Here's what caught my eye:

"But recent breakthroughs in machine-learning technology, employed by creators racing to refine and perfect their fakes, have made fake-video creation more accessible than ever. All that’s needed to make a persuasive mimicry within a matter of hours is a computer and a robust collection of photos, such as those posted by the millions onto social media every day."

For me, that's one more reason to stay off social media.  (I hope that Ravelry will never become like Facebook.)

Re: A new way to steek your knitting

Joan Conca
 

Jamieson’s yarn is great!  I purchased a good bit of it in the Shetland Islands this past June.  It doesn’t ravel when cut.  It’s used for Fair Isle and Norwegian knitted garments when steeking is part of the pattern directions.

Joan J

P. S.  It’s cheaper ordering directly from Jamieson’s in the Shetland Islands…..even with the shipping.

how serindipidous! I happend to watch several videos yesterday morning on this same blog and now I see your message, Lucinda. The video about steeks got me thinking about knitting with Jamieson yarn (which I am totally guessing is the yarn used in Meg's swatch--but an educated guess, since Schoolhouse sells Jamieson yarn). I've never knitted with Jamieson.

Goat Fiber?

Lucinda Shastid
 

I just met a new friend, Melanie Berti, who has 5 bags of raw goat fiber.  She's looking for someone to clean and spin it.  I'll bring one bag to the next meeting to see if anyone is interested. 

She is also looking for a knitting group near her - she lives in Brewster/North Salem.  Does anyone know of a knitting group there?  I've copied Melanie on this message if  you want to write her directly.

If anyone is interested in the goat fiber, please either come to our next meeting (Sunday, January 6) or write me about getting together some other time.

Lucinda

A new way to steek your knitting

Lucinda Shastid
 

If you want to knit a whole sweater in the round, instead of dividing at the underarms and knitting back-and-forth to the shoulders, or if you want to knit a cardigan in the round, then steeking is your friend.  A "steek" is a "bridge" of about 5 stitches that's knit on purpose in order to cut it apart later.  Here's Meg Swanson's description: https://www.schoolhousepress.com/blog/megonsteeks/

And here's Meg's video with a new way to keep the stitches from raveling.  I was first taught to machine-sew the stitches.  Then someone came up with crocheting them, and now needle-felting is added to our repertoire.
