Cable Studies

This post is a bit different from my usual “patterns”. The more I delve into knitting patterns, the more I realize that my pattern writing is seriously lacking. They help me recall projects, although a more experienced writer would cringe. But I digress… I’d really just like to share some of the new cables I’ve learned … Continue reading Cable Studies

Pillow Cover

When I started this project I had no idea how long it would take. For something so simple (it’s really just two squares woven together) it ended up being the most knitting I’ve ever done.

I also used twine (I love twine). While twine can be a bit difficult to work with, the end result is well … Continue reading Bright Basket
