Ask Audrey: Q&A time

We’re doing a “Ask Calagator” thing over on the Calagator blog right now, so you can ask us whatever you’d like to about the Calagator software, our development process, or tech events in Portland. I thought it might be fun to do the same thing over here on my own blog, on the off chance there’s something you’d like me to talk about, whether it’s projects I work on, or baking tips, or how’s that open source world domination thing going. So post your question in the comments. If you don’t, I’ll be forced to make something up.

  1. e-book readers: a great technological advance, or the greatest technological advance ever?

  2. Which will be destroyed by a volcano first, Seattle or Portland
    how about earthquake?

  3. Portland for the volcano (you’ve read/seen The Lathe of Heaven, right?) and Seattle for the earthquake (the ground will liquify under your feet!).

  4. Kelly Guimont

    What’s your favorite method for casting on?

  5. I am really lazy about casting on, so I use the backward loop method any time I think I can get away with it (without being messy or affecting gauge). Otherwise, the long-tail cast on, or sometimes the knitted cast on where you knit a stitch between the last two on the needle.

    If I’m making socks from a pattern I do whatever they recommend, because it’s almost certainly more stretchy than my default choices.
