To celebrate, of course, there must be contest.
You know you want it.
But, if you don’t, the winner can also choose to take home …
a skein of The Knittery’s merino/cashmere sock yarn, in Forest Moss.
How to win? Share your input on one of these four knitting and blog-related questions. I’ll draw the winner’s name randomly from all responses left before 11:59pm on Sunday, September 30.
(1) So, say you knit a sweater, doing a shit ton of math to make an XXXS size to fit the recipient, but then it was still too big, and instead of doing the thing properly, you just stitched the side seams up on your sewing machine and now it fits perfectly…
Except the recipient accidentally revealed last week that the side seams are (understandably) bulky and uncomfortable.
(2) Do you use lifelines in lace knitting? If so, how do you do it? If not, how often do you find yourself having to rip back your lace a row or two to hunt down where you’ve added or lost a stitch?
The Peacock Feathers Shawl (it’s now grown to about twice the size it is in this photo) is the most complicated lace I’ve ever done, and I’m learning that I really shouldn’t do it in front of the television.
(3) What’s the best book/web site for learning intarsia knitting? My new project demands it:
(4) So, say your fabulous grandmother died and left behind four tiny fluffy 10g balls of cream and rose 100% angora yarn that smell like her (a good thing, as your late grandmother was always impeccably turned out and prettily perfumed, albeit with a dab of paint or glue somewhere on her person), and you’ve been sitting on the yarn for 10 years.
Thanks in advance for your insights and input!
Oh, and a big thank you to Kris, who sent me a skein of the same Wollmeise yarn (modeled here by Wilma) she used for her So-Called Wonder Woman Scarf. Thanks Kris!!
