Happy New Year’s / The Knitters Life book

My knitting friend Grace gave me a book for Christmas called “The Knitter’s Life List”  by Gwen W. Steege.

 This book is a fun read and you can learn a lot a long the way.  In fact, if it were not for this book I would have continued to knit uneven (twisted) stitches when making the simple stocking stitch pattern.  It was not something that anybody really noticed, nor did I, till I knit a top down cardigan.  The top of the cardigan was knit in the round and the rest was regular knitting so it wasn’t apparent till finished.  I noticed there was a distinct but subtle difference on the two styles of knitting.   I had been trying to figure it out for a very long time till this book set me straight, yay!  The info is on page 67, check it out!!!  The book that she is referring to is called Confessions of a Knitting Heretic by Annie Modesitt.  I ordered this book on Amazon and should be here by the new year.

I wish everyone a most wonderfuly creative and happy New Year!
