I love a thoughtful, detailed tour through a knitting project. It’s the essence of a knitting blog: the highs, the lows, the drama of whether the neckline will flop.
Come here and sit beside Alice as she talks us through the making of her Perfect Sweater, V Neck Edition. She’s a regular Julia Child of the knitting needles–her sweater’s as purty as a perfectly roasted chicken.
Stitch Marker Larissa is in a square mood right now–she is just beginning a cool knitalong for afghan squares which she’ll be showcasing in her upcoming book about knitalongs, and also to be donated to charity. You can get the details here–it’s an extremely groovy pattern, and it requires the use of sock yarn. Which really ought to be required just about all the time, for everything. Good luck, Larissa!
PS The sweet peas continue to head straight UP. A leaf would be nice. Just saying.
