I am working on a jumper using DPN's; I now remember why I always avoided them in the past. But, it's not an option with this project so I have to persevere.
This is my latest garment, just off the jumper board -and, just in time for spring and summer so I'll have to wait to wear it until next year.
I just had a look at the attachments to my latest 3 blog entries and I see the photos are the size of a house. I didn't realise it when I up-loaded them.
Here it is - the grandpappy of Fair Isle knitting books by the grand dame (she should be given an OBE for this work!) of Fair Isle knitting herself: Alice Starmore.
Another Alice Starmore book is The Celtic Collection - 25 Knitwear Designs for Men and Women; hardcover, 1992; 144 pages; out of print.
Recently I purchased a number of knitting books. This one is Tudor Roses by Alice Starmore; 1998; soft cover; 126 pages; out of print now.
I just discovered this new video podcast today. The focus is teaching a newby to knit.
Thanks to Mike (stickywarp) I now have the shorter DPN's that I need. However, I am still looking for the 40 cm length DPN in the following sizes: 3.25 mm, 7.75 mm, 4.5 mm, 5 mm, 5.5 mm.
There is a new podcast by a knitting guy you might want to have a listen to:
I just received this traditional knitting belt from Jamieson & Smith in the Shetland Islands. I also ordered the 2 sets of 40 cm DPN's.
