Figuring Out Knits

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m terrified of knit fabric. Cotton is so stable and solid — the edges meet nicely, my needles behave with it and it isn’t complicated. Knits, on the other hand, have never seemed to like me. They slip around, are temperamental with even the best stretch needles… I could … Continue reading Figuring Out Knits
