There's been no time to write recently, as I've got back to my day job and have an approaching deadline for my MA term assessment. I have been knitting of course, and I've also been thinking about different ways to write about knitting. So here's a list of knitterly things I want to tell you about over the coming days/weeks/months/whatever/did I mention I'm busy? ;)

  • How it feels to cast on 547 stitches in Channel Island cast on, and just what is Channel Island cast on, anyway?
  • Using stuff from my weird techniques class in real life: why knowing how to knit (well, purl!) backwards is making me very happy as I work on this 10-stitch triangle.
  • Sometimes the chart's just too damn big -- Cairdeas on hold for now.
  • Itching to get back to sock design work over the spring and summer when I'm on break from the MA. Stay tuned.
  • How would you guys feel if I said I was seriously thinking about offering a class that's nothing but cast ons? And another that's nothing but cast offs? Would you laugh? Or would you be like, "Wow, I wanna take THAT!" (Assuming you take knitting classes at all, that is.)

and back to work.

I've been using some of your techniques from the Weird Techniques class IRL, including cabling without a needle, magic loop, and both magic and Turkish cast-ons (I have been knitting a doll, cast on with magic cast-on, knit head with magic loop and then used Turkish cast-on to increase for the shoulders!). Having great fun....

why not do both in the same class. Then we could cast off what we've just cast on! Caroline
