This is great. I'll need t check out her book.


I like the talk!


Aaarrghh--mis-crossed cables! I'm just a few hours from finishing a Aran baby romper. It only has 3 different cables, the sort of thing that you remember after just a few inches. Sure enough, when I looked over all the pieces, before picking up stitches for the neck...I screwed up 2 " from the top of the front piece. Memo to self: don't knit anything slightly tricky while watching Lamont-Lieberman primary or similar nervous-making events.


Definitely a book to get for my collection. Thanks for the shout out on my blog.


You know I love you, right? Great article. Honestly, in the middle of reading it I had this overwhelming urge to get my hands on some needles just to knit. I think it's because you reminded me of how wonderful it is.

Sahara - I have to admit to heart palpitations just reading this post. I start sweating thinking about all my mistakes and trying to rip out and fix things. I think I need this book.


I just put this on my "purchase" list. Thank you so much for the review and the interview. Your blog is always a rewarding read.


That was a great article! I was twitching a little on some of the mistakes I saw. I even put my finger on the screen as to try and fix it or push the stitch in. I know, it's crazy. I just have this OCD.
