I am just thrilled to finally be done with the latest chapter in Stitch by Bloody Stitch, which is for the situation we run into when cardigan instructions have explicit shaping for only one of its fronts. In other words, the instructions have the highly annoying sentence “Right Front: Work as for left front, reversing all shaping.”
I am totally serious. How big a paint brush do you use for different painting tasks?
You use a roller for large areas, and you use perhaps a two-inch brush for getting close around door frames, window frames, baseboards, and ceilings. (And if you’ve never tried the one with the bristles cut at an angle, you’ve been missing out.) Nothing revolutionary or unexpected here.
I shared this news in a new thread in the book’s Rav group, but it never occurred to me to put it right here on the website!!! Duh!
So this post is backdated to the day of the news, which is that Schoolhouse Press is putting a blurb about my book in the next Wool Gathering (#97), which comes out in September (2017).
So I’m finalizing the book (thank You, God!) and stumbled across a good way to verify that those final little edits didn’t turn into big boo-boos.
If you have to frog, you know it’s very easy to rip out the last row you worked.
But what if you find yourself in a situation where you need to frog the cast-on and first row you worked? Can it be done?
Have you ever looked at an Aran sweater and felt like there was no way you could make it? That juggling all those gorgeous cable patterns at the same time was beyond your ability?
It’s not. There is a simple way to keep every pattern on track as you work that dream sweater.
