Works in Progress



Technique Tip

How to do a smooth bias bind off. Check out this tutorial and pictures by Cocoknits. This is a great way to get a smooth neckline

Q&A

Lisa from New Zealand asks:
I notice that you knit your shawls, scarves, socks and mittens etc (smalls) in neutral colours and your larger items sweaters and tops etc in brighter colours. Is that true or a reflection on the seasons/where you live/just a coincidence of what you have been doing recently?
I’m a new knitter and very keen (at this stage) to knit items in colours I will actually wear (a lot) vs colours that look so pretty to knit but not in my comfort zone for clothing.

Have a question? Ask! I'm happy to answer questions in the show.

See you next week!
