Meg Swanson's Fairisle Slipover

Back in the day before YouTube instructional videos, I wanted to learn stranded knitting and steeking. As strange as it might sound today, almost no one knew what steeking was and Fairisle knitting was definitely out of fashion. I can remember numerous discussions here on MWK about these two subjects.

Just a pair of socks.

Nothing special, I did these for the wife if a friend who was having a
birthday. They were out of town and I was housesitting so I found a pair of her shoes and used them for sizing. That's not creepy, is it? :-))

Koolhaas Hat

if you don't mind cables, this is a great hat. You can do them without a cable needle.

Help understanding Provisional Cast-on method

I'm a little confused by the terminology. It lists a "knit one front and back" as the same as a bar increase...? I know the bar as the yarn that runs between stitches, and a "make one" as pulling up that bar, twisting and knitting it (R or L as need be).

Striped Corrugator

Hi all,

It's been quite a fall/early winter and I haven't been on much. At the end of September, I moved back to the US after 14 years in Turkey. I have been knitting here and there though,and as life settles down, I've slowly been getting back into old habits. :) Also enjoying some new ones!

Diagonal Stripes Too

After the challenge from michaelpthompson, I thought hard and long about how to do this. The other night, at 1 am when I sat down to watch "The Interview", I decided to do a sample. Doing it in your head is not always the same as actually doing it on the needles!
