Has anyone purchased any of her books?
Knit Your Own Zoo just came out this week and I find the concept so cool.
Shaped KnittingA couple of friends of mine are professional knitters, in that they design garments, stitch patterns and even one-off items as requested by textile companies or fashion designers. In addition to creating thousands of swatches of knit-stitch patterns, they have also been asked to create things like, fuzzy dice, high-heel shoe, fire hydrant, etc.
For me, just creating the shaping that creates a heel on the tube of fabric called a sock, stretches my talents to their max. I honestly can't imagine figuring out how to shape a giraffe's nose using knit stitches.
Current Knitting / CrochetFinished one of the two socks, and the nice part about having started the second one, is that the pair is now almost finished.
I figured since this is the standard sock recipe I posted in the last blog entry, you might want to see photos of what it looks like.
Readers' Comments/QuestionsLeslie noted that I had used knit-jargon when I referenced the "E-Z's sewn bind-off".
I guess I considered this to be like an abbreviation in a pattern...an abbreviation which required a translation. And that is why I linked to a video detailing what it was. Kind of like putting SSK in the pattern and then having a key to what SSK means.
