Tim (teejtc) started up a nice idea of the "Tradition" gift a while back. Patrick (celowin) was the next to offer something and now I'd like to follow suit and offer a gift.
I just wanted to let you know about a new knitting video podcast (just 2 episodes so far) called "Knitterati".
"The Reader's Digest Knitter's Handbook - A comprehensive guide to the principles and techniques of handknitting" by Montse Stanley; 1986,2001; softcover; 318 pages.
New Directions in Fair Isle Knitting by Patty Knox, 1985, hardcover, oversize, 119 pages, out of print.
Lucy Neatby has to be one of the top knitting artists and instructors. I have her other DVD's and loved them.
Here are a couple of projects to pass the time until my knitting wools arrive from the Shetland Islands.
Here are two devices I found useful for stranded knitting. Neither is new but I thought I'd post about them for anyone who is considering this knitting technique.
I just couldn't resist the purchase of the Royal Doulton mug dated 1936. When you look at the photos, I think you'll agree it is a must-have!
There is a small chain of yarn shops in NZ which this past year sponsored our Knitters' Weekend. As a follow-up they issued this mug - I wonder if they were thinking of me?
For those of you who knit the 4-ply stranded patterns, where do you source your knitting wools?
