Why do you use Judy’s magic cast-on? Do I have to use it or can I do this CO another way?
How did you come up with the idea for the Knitter’s Keep?
Julie: It started with a cable needle – and what the heck do you do with it when you’re not using it? I’ve seen knitters hold it in their teeth or behind their ear, but usually it falls into the couch cushions and you have to dig around to find it. I had a friend who would tuck it into her hair on top of her head; one time she found it while driving in the car, still securely perched in her hair!
Most of the knitters that I interact with during my classes and trunk shows are “of a certain age.” So I was especially thrilled to receive an email from a young woman named Sadie… but not only because she is a talented, young knitter!
The design house Mulberry put together a wonderful little video called “Spinning A Yarn” in which we get to meet two of the knitters responsible for the handknits in their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Fun to watch while knitting!
