Latest Knitting Article
I haven't gotten to do one of these in a while!
Mate to Measure isn't online, but is in the latest issue of Knit.1 Magazine and is a beginner's overview to the process of designing a sweater for a man (the assumed reader being a twentysomething female knitting for her boyfriend).
So you want to knit a sweater for That Guy. Good for you. But before you start, bear in mind the most important piece of advice I can possibly give you: DON'T SURPRISE HIM. Just don't. You've been warned, OK?
It was a lot of fun to write - easier than dance writing and the pay is better, but if your motivation to do dance writing is the pay, you need your head examined. I haven't yet seen the article in print, because I haven't gotten an author's copy of the magazine yet (AHEM. . . )
Knit.1 has also started a blog.
