News you can use: really great tips from the trio who have created Drop-Dead Easy Knits, a juicy collection of gorgeous projects that goes on sale today. On the cover alone I see five things I want to make.
Knitting tips galore. And a bonus: how to create a nice clean chin line in a photo? The answer is here, people. Watch and learn.
One of the projects is a Kay Gardiner Special, a pattern called the Star-eyed Julep Throw.
Kay, I hope you’ll tell us more about how you came up with this idea. You kept telling me you’d cooked up this mind-blowing log cabin pattern. It was like Bigfoot, this pattern—I never saw it, you kept talking about it, I tried to smile and not let you know I thought you’d lost your mind.
Well, count me gobsmacked. It’s a beauty.
