It’s been a while, I know, but here are some things I’ve been loving lately:
• Felicia on the most important lesson there is: learning to read your knitting. That is truly the point where everything changes, so if you don’t know how to read your work, go read every word. (See also her amazing quilt roundup, swoon)
• The incredible Nido has branched out; how amazing are these Telar textiles? (Did I learn to weave yet? I really am getting that Cricket Loom soon.)
• Better living through yak down
• Tara Hurst in a sweater her grandmother knitted in Emma’s Lovely Lady series. (I love Tara’s blog.)
• Coveting this simple tee
• Amazeballs (thanks, G)
• Next year I’m going to the Scandinavian festival with Lori
• And in case anyone hasn’t seen it, this is your brain on knitting
Do you know what pattern that is? Want, want want to make it!!
Tara Hurst’s lovely cardigan. My question was answered in the comments below :)
Great round up as always, Karen!
That sweater on Tara Hurst is beautiful! Her blog is amazing, too. I think I might be the only person who hadn’t read “This is your brain on knitting”, thanks for the reminder.
Love the post about scribbling on Aran sweaters. I’m totally going to do that and sell them on Etsy.
The Telar textiles are making me drool!
The “reading your knitting” links are so fantastic. I finally understand why ssk and k2tog lean in opposite directions!
haha, bring a hearty appetite, the viking dogs were Amazing! yes weaving! i put that loom on my wish list now.
LOVED the k2tog collection! OMG never seen knitting like this before – inspiring!
just rec’d my fabulous safety scissors and cable needles – enjoying my yarn ball printed bag too!!! I’ve been spreading the word about fringe association here in Cannon Falls MN. Thanks for all the great links etc..
Thank you, Marci!
It’s true. Learning to read my knitting made the greatest difference in my confidence.
Wow, that sweater is gorgeous! I might have to make it. :-) It’s the Landfall Cardigan, by Veronik Avery, right? Here’s the link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/landfall
Good eye — looks like it is, just with some changes to the stitch pattern.
Come take one of my weaving classes!
One of these days, that will be happening.
Thank you for helping us share our story at The Rocking Yak!
