Twist Collective

I haven't investigated this site too much but what I did find looks promising. Check it out if you get a chance. It is apparently free as are all the back issues.
Enjoy.

Happy Holidays

To all my dear friends and fellow MWKers -

May you all have many Blessings through this Holiday Season and the coming New Year. Whether you celebrate the Solstice [like me], Christmas, Hanukkah [which was early this year], Kwanzaa, New Year, Lunar New Year or whichever and whatever your heart desires - or even not at all - I wish you Peace and Happiness in the time ahead.

I'm starting my first double-knit lace project. The pattern is by a young New York City lad by the ravetar of Aptenoknits. It's available free on Ravelry until March. I'd never considered lace before, having gotten trapped in a double-knitting energy vortex years ago in my reckless knitting youth. Trapped in the vortex as I am, lace always seemed inaccessible and remote.

Help, how to do an uneven edge

My wife saw this hat on a. craft table and I'm trying to make her one, but I'm not sure how to do this edge. It's not exactly scalloped but not straight and even either. Any advice? Thanks.

Here's an article I ran across that some of you might find interesting. Apparently lots of grammar school children of a certain age are almost knitting. According to this article it's the biggest kids' fad of the year. I wonder how these kids would react to a teacher who could actually knit these things. For your consideration:
