knitting gauge

technical editors Tracey Davidson, Karen Frisa, Lori Gayle, Julie Gaddy, Robin Melanson

To check gauge, cast on thirty to forty stitches using recommended needle


size. Work in pattern stitch until piece measures at least 4" from cast-on
edge. Remove swatch from needles or bind off loosely and lay swatch on
flat surface. Place a ruler over swatch and count number of stitches across
and number of rows down (including fractions of stitches and rows) in 4".
Repeat two or three times on different areas of swatch to confirm measurements. If you have more stitches and rows than called for in instructions,
use larger needles; if you have fewer, use smaller needles. Repeat until
gauge is correct.

Our summer issue always comes out at a kind of strange time of year. For instance,
the fi les that make up the issue youre holding in your hands were fi nalized and sent
to a printer in early Marcha decidedly un-summery time of year. As Im writing
this, Im actually kind of stuck in my house because northern Colorado received
about two feet of snow in the last 24 hours. Looking at photos of projects designed for
warmer weather is causing an incredible disconnect for me.
That said, I absolutely cannot wait for those summer days to show up. I dont
mind the snow; Im just absolutely enamored with the projects in this issue. Our
Tropical Heatwave story (pages 2435) makes me long for sunny beaches and visits
to rainforestsin fact, Ive already cast on for Noriko Hos Heliconia Wrap because I
have to have my own!
Our Indigo Blues projects (pages 4255) are inspired by ocean blues, pool blues,
and everything in between. Knit mostly in plant-based fi ber yarns, these patterns
will keep you feeling and looking cool all summer long. Be sure to read Leslie Ordals
article, starting on page 56, for an overview of the process of indigo dyeing and its
history with fabric.
Featured designer Heather Zoppettis design collection (pages 1621) includes
three utterly feminine, utterly unique pieces that youll want to cast on immediately.
Sarah Solomon, in the fi rst part of a series on decreases and increases, walks you
through the most basic k2tog, ssk, and centered double-decreasesafter reading her
tutorial on pages 3640, youll be a decreasing pro. Last, but most defi nitely not least,

PATTERN PL AY

Size Matters
How to choose the right size every time
Kate Atherley

Photo by Garrett Evans

Weve all been therethat point at


which we fall in love with a knitted garment pattern but agonize over what size
to knit. Pattern guru Kate Atherley is
here to share the secrets to choosing
which size to knit for any garment.

There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right


size of a pattern to knit, but there are two key things to look
for: information about the garment itself and information
about the person who is to wear the garment. Information
about the garment itself can be found in the printed pattern.
You might see the headings Size (or To Fit) and Finished
Measurements (or Actual). Whats the difference?
Size describes the person who is to wear the garment.
Sometimes size is presented as lettersS, M, L, XL. For childrens garments, its often presented as an age (e.g., newborn,
3 months, 1 year, 2 years). Sometimes its given as a measurement (e.g., 36", 38", 40" chest). Think of this as what you read
on the label in the clothing store. Size says very little about
the garment.
Finished Measurements describes the garment and is the
key listing to help you determine a size. If a pattern lists that
the sweater has an actual finished bust circumference of 40",
if you measure it, it will be 40" around at bust heightthat is,
the front and back will each be 20" across. In Knitscene, the
measurements at the top of the materials list under Sizes
are the actual measurements of the garment when knitted
to match the gauge listed. (See my Pattern Play column from
Knitscene Winter 2015 on achieving gauge.)
Different types and styles of garments are worn differently: a bulky sweater-coat is worn loose, while the shell of
a twin-set is worn more fitted. The finished measurements
of the sweater-coat would be much larger than the finished
measurements of the shell, but both could be worn by the
same person. To help choose the right size, you also want to
consider the person who will be wearing the garment.
Youve probably heard about ease. Ease is about how
you wear a garment, the difference between your measurements and the measurements of the garment. The measurements of my winter coat are much bigger than my body
measurements; it has a lot of ease, so I can fit a sweater
under it. The measurements of my favorite summer T-shirt

are much closer to my own actual measurementsI wear


it quite closely fitted, with only a little ease. The finished
measurements of my yoga top are the same as my measurementsI wear it with zero ease. The finished measurements
of the leggings I wear at yoga class are smaller than my
measurements, as they stretch to fitI wear them with
negative ease. Go through your own wardrobe and measure
items of clothing: different types of garments will have wildly
different measurements, depending on how you wear them.
Note: The finished measurements of the garment that are
listed in a pattern are exactly thatthe measurements of the
garment. There is no ease built into garment measurements,
since there is no ease without a person in the garment.
The finished measurements of a garment you make will
rarely match your own measurements. Choose the finished
measurements of the garment based on your measurements
plus the ease you want. If you want to wear a garment
loosely, you might choose the size for which the finished
measurements are your own plus 34" of ease. That is, if
your bust measurement (more on this below) is 40", you will
want your sweater to be 43" or 44" around. If youre making
a stretch-to-fit piece, such as a sock, the finished measurements might be smaller than your actual measurements.
Some patterns dont list a size specifically. Always look
for the measurements of the garment, such as numbers on
a schematic, and guidance on how to choose which size to
make. There may be a statement (e.g., choose a size about 2"
larger than your actual measurement). Look at the pictures:
How is the model wearing the garment? Is it very tight? Is it
slim-fitting? Is it roomy? Consider the garment type and style
and how you would wear it. Find something similar in your
wardrobe and measure that!
I love a pattern that offers a schematic, as its a way to
virtually try on a garment. Before I decide on the size Im
going to make, I hold a tape measure around myself to get a
sense of how big a size is relative to my body. If its a straight
sweater with no shaping measuring 42" around, I will see
what a 42" circumference looks like around my body at
various points: my hips, my waist, the fullest part of my bust,
my upper bust. Ill also look at the sleeve lengths, the neck
depth, and other key measurements to get a sense of how the
garment will fit me. After that, Ill choose the size that most
closely aligns with the measurements I want, and then I can
get started knitting the perfect size for me!
A few minutes with a tape measure can guide you to
better size choices and radically improve the fit of your garments. Measure yourself, measure your wardrobe, and then
measure out the pattern youre looking at. If youre going to
spend hours making a garment, its worth those few minutes
to get the perfect fit!

HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF


Grab a friend for a measuring party. Wear a tight-fitting
tank or a swimsuit and take the key measurements.
The handy chart and illustrations on this page come
from Alex Capshaw-Taylors new book, Dressed
in Knits (Interweave/F+W Media, 2015). The most
important measurement is bust, but probably not as
you expect: for your bust, take your upper torso measurement, just under the arms. The size of your full
bust doesnt reflect the size of your frame. A D-cup
slim but curvy woman and a B-cup, broad-shouldered
competitive swimmer might both measure 40" around
the full bust, but they couldnt possibly wear the same
size shirt. The high bust measurement gives a more
accurate sense of the size of your frame. The key to
flattery is a proper fit in the shoulders and frame.

The Beginners Guide to

Writing Knitting Patterns


Reviewed by Louisa Demmitt
Knitting up a pattern that has come from your own creative
mind is an awesome feeling. You make decisions on the
fly, tweaking something here, adding an element there, the
project is beautiful and original, and you want to share your
creation with the knitting world! But will your notes and
schematics, your overall pattern, make sense to someone
who isnt you?
If you want to make sure that your pattern is understandable and accessible, The Beginners Guide to Writing Knitting
Patterns by Kate Atherley is the handbook you need. Kate is a
designer, teacher, and tech editor, and she has an incredible
wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things knitting.
I especially like that she asks you a lot of questions in this
book, helping you really think things through. Should you
be writing in rounds or rows? Is your list of notions comprehensive? Many of the questions might seem small, but they
matter, and they make a huge difference when youre trying
to knit a pattern.
As Kate says, Its simple: Good pattern writing matters
because we want knitters to keep knitting. Its so frustrating

to see photos of something you want to make, only to fi nd


that the pattern is convoluted and confusing and not worth
the time to decipher. With the information in this book, youll
ensure that your patterns make sense and become projects
that people knit time and time again and recommend to
others as well!

Mattress
Stitch
Sachiko Burgin

Seaming up those flat knitted pieces is a lot easier than


you might expect. Mattress stitch is best for sewing
vertical seams of stockinette stitch, such as the sides
of a sweater or edges of a sleeve. Appearing virtually
seamless from the right side, mattress stitch gives your
knitting the most professional appearance.
It is best to use the same yarn that was used in the project;
however, if your yarn easily breaks or is bulky or uneven, you
can opt for a stronger, thinner yarn in a close color. For demonstration purposes, these photos use two different colors.
First, block all your pieces to straighten the edges and
even out the tension, so the seams may be worked easily and
evenly. Lay your pieces on a flat surface with the right sides
facing you and the two edges about to be
joined side by side.
If your cast-on tail is long enough,
thread the tail on a tapestry needle. If the
tail is too short, cut a new length of yarn.
Working one full stitch in from the edge,
insert the needle from the back and out to
the front above the two bars of your caston edge (Figure 1). Pull the yarn through
and repeat this step on the other corner
(Figure 2). Pull the yarn tight to close the
gap (Figure 3).
Returning to the piece with which
you started, gently pull the two edge
stitches away from each other to see the
horizontal bars running up between them (Figure4). Insert the
tapestry needle under the next bar and pull yarn through to
the front, leaving a small amount of slack in the yarn between
the two pieces (Figure 5). Repeat this step on the corresponding horizontal bar on the opposing side (Figure 6). Continue
in this manner for about an inch, then fi rmly pull the tail
upward to bring the side edges snugly together (Figure 7).
Avoid pulling too tightly, as you want to maintain the elasticity of the knit fabric and not create any puckers. Working in a
zigzag fashion, continue until your seam is complete. Weave
in all your ends on the wrong side.

For fi ner knits, you can work under two bars at a time
for similar results, but your preference for this will be established with practice and experience. s

Heather Zoppetti is the fastest


knitter I know, and I know a lot
of knitters. Shes been designing
for only six years, yet she has an
impressive library of designs and
two books under her belt. Shes
prolific partially due to her speed,
but mostly due to the fact that she
has a head full of ideas that she
needs to bring to fruition. She just
doesnt stop. When folks ask me
about her design business or her
quickly growing pattern-distribution
and yarn company, I always say the
same thing: Shes a force of nature.
When Heather began knitting,
she followed the trajectory that many
of us designers do. She just couldnt
leave well enough alone. She had to
fi x things, change things, and make
things her own. That quickly led
to designing her own patterns. Her
fi rst design was actually for a Knitty
competition, using her handspun yarn.
But then she got serious. She did an
entire blog series on her next design,
the Nancy & Judy shawl. She blogged
the process, from inspiration to
publication, on her website (www
.hzoppettidesigns.com/blog/designseries-nancyjudy). At this point,

Heather was still an aspiring designer,


but she didnt mess around. She
was quickly published in Interweave
Knits, and her Dahlia Cardigan from
Interweave Knits Fall 2011 continues
to be a perennial favorite.
In addition to her prolific design
career, Heather runs a highly regarded
small yarn company and pattern
distribution business, Stitch Sprouts.
She started this business in the midst
of writing two books for Interweave,
because the woman never slows down.
She wanted a business that supported
the industry, from designer to local
yarn store. She started out distributing
patterns and selling stitch markers,
but quickly progressed to having her
very own yarns milled. She currently
has two yarn bases, Yellowstone and
Crater Lake, which are already being
featured in magazines and books.
Twice a year, she sets up a booth at
The National NeedleArts Association
(TNNA) show, where she exhibits her
yarns, her crazy popular class kits, and
the patterns she distributes for 30 of
the best designers in the industry.
At this point she has a waiting list of
designers clamoring to be a part of
her vision.
Heathers personal design process
starts with the big picture. She begins
with the itema sweater, a hat, a
shawland then drills down to the
details. Once she knows what shes
doing construction-wise, she starts
looking at stitch patterns. Thats
the dangerous part, because the
stitch pattern she is considering for a
top-down cardigan might scream to
be a lace shawl, and then comes the
temptation to drop everything and
cast on for a shawl that must be made
immediately. Sometimes the hardest
part of designing is sticking with the
project at hand.

This collection for Knitscene came


together very organically. Heather
started with the idea of petalsall
softness and ruffles. She didnt use
any of her own yarns in the collection because she relishes the chance
to play with other peoples beautiful
yarns. The resulting three-piece collection is decidedly feminine with just
a hint of modern edge.
Whats coming up for Heather? Her
biggest goal for 2016 is establishing a
solid library of pattern support for her
Yellowstone and Crater Lake yarns.
Whether she designs and knits these
things herself or acquires designs from
her network of talented friends, there is
no doubt the yarns will be well represented. And then Heather can jump to
her next amazing thing. s

Slanting
Stitches
The ins and outs of decreasing
Sarah Solomon

Lace often looks so complex that it can be daunting, but


in the majority of cases, what looks like an intricate lace
pattern is made up of relatively simple combinations of
decreases and yarnovers. Because working decreases
is fundamental to working lace patterns, this article will
focus on how to work the decreases most commonly
found in lace knitting and illustrate how they change the
shape and appearance of knitted fabric. Although these
techniques will help you in lace knitting, the properties
of each decrease are best demonstrated on a background
of stockinette stitch, as in the swatches on pages 3738.
Learning to read your knitted fabric and to identify
individual stitches is an essential skill in knitting. Once
you can recognize them in stockinette, it is easier to
identify them within lace knitting, and knowing which
way each decrease will slant will help you to read your
knitting and to predict where a pattern should be going.

SINGLE DECREASES

Well begin with the decreases used most frequently: single


decreases. Single decreases reduce two stitches to one and
lean either to the right or to the left. Decreases can be worked
on either the right side or wrong side of the fabric. The
descriptions in this section refer to the directional slant of
the stitch viewed from the right side of the fabric, regardless
of which side they were worked on. In the stockinette-stitch
swatches shown, right side refers to the knit side of the fabric and wrong side to the purl side. Due to the directional
slant of the various decreases, they are often worked in mirrored pairs, either leaning toward one
another or away from one another, to
anoth
keep balance within the fabric. Each
single
sing decrease is grouped with its
most
mos common partner.
The instructions for working the
decreases
are based on knitting in
de
the
th Western style, with the right
leg
le of the stitch sitting on the front
of the needle. If you knit in the
Eastern
or Combination style, you
E
will
w need to work your stitches
differently to achieve the same
result. For more information on

how to manipulate stitches for Eastern


or Combination knitting, see www
.grumperina.com/table.pdf.
K2tog: Knit two stitches together.
Insert the right needle into the second
stitch, then into the fi rst stitch on the
left needle from left to right, wrap the
yarn as if to knit and pull up a loop,
dropping the two stitches off the left
needle. K2tog leans to the right.
The left-leaning decrease usually
paired with k2tog is ssk.
Ssk: Slip, slip, knit. Slip the next two
stitches on the left needle knitwise,
one at a time, to the right needle. Insert
the left needle into the front of the two
slipped stitches on the right needle
from left to right. Wrapping the yarn
around the right needle as if to knit,
pull up a loop and drop the two stitches
from the left needle.
The directional slant of decreases
has a powerful effect on knitted fabric,
whether shaping a stockinette fabric
or creating a lace pattern. Where you
place your decreases within your fabric
can alter the appearance dramatically,
especially when stacking decreases at
regular intervals, as you might do for a
raglan armhole.
Swatches 1 and 2 show decreases
worked two stitches in from the fabric
edge. In general, it is preferable to
work decreases at least one stitch
away from the edge of the piece; this
results in a smoother edge and greater
clarity for the directional slant of the
decrease itself. Swatch 1 uses k2tog at
the beginning of the row and ssk at the
end of the row. Swatch 2 reverses this
pattern, using ssk at the beginning of
the row and k2tog at the end of the row.
Observe how differently the fabric lies
in each example.
The wrong-side equivalents of these
two decreases are p2tog and ssp.
P2tog: Purl two stitches together.
Insert the right needle into the fi rst
and second stitches on the left needle
from right to left, wrap the yarn as if to
purl and pull up a loop, dropping the
two stitches from the left needle. P2tog
resembles k2tog when seen from the
right side of the work.
Ssp: Slip, slip, purl. Slip the next two
stitches on the left needle knitwise, one
at a time, to the right needle. Return
these two stitches to the left needle in

their current orientation. With the yarn held in front, insert


the right needle from left to right through the back of the
second, then the fi rst stitch. Wrapping the yarn as if to purl,
pull up a loop and drop the two stitches from the left needle.
Ssp resembles ssk when seen from the right side of the work.
Swatch 3 shows pairs of decreases being worked on both
right and wrong sides of the fabric. The right-side decreases
were worked using ssk at the beginning of the row and k2tog
at the end of the row. The wrong-side decreases were worked
using p2tog at the beginning of the row and ssp at the end
of the row, which stacked the wrong-side pair of decreases
with their right-side equivalents, resulting in a smooth and
continuous line of decreases.
Now that you can clearly see how the single decreases are
formed, lets take a look at a few alternatives that can make
working left-leaning decreases a bit easier. When you need to
work ssk with some frequency, as is often the case in lace, it
can be handy to have a simpler way of working this decrease,
without as many distinct movements. In the alternative
method below, this is done entirely on the left needle, without slipping any stitches.
Ssk (all on the needles): Without slipping any stitches,
insert the right needle knitwise into the fi rst stitch on the
left needle, then maneuver the right needle to the front of the
work and insert the needle knitwise into the second stitch.
The right needle will now be through both stitches and
pointing away from you on the wrong side of the work.
Wrapping the yarn as if to knit, pull up a loop and drop the

SWATCH 3

38

two stitches from the left needle. This will yield the same
result as the method of working ssk explained above.
Another left-leaning decrease common in lace patterns is
skp (slip, knit, pass slipped stitch over). Ssk is more commonly used, as the resulting stitch is slightly more subtle and
more closely mirrors k2tog. However, skp frequently appears
in older patterns and it can also be used in place of ssk if you
fi nd it easier to work or think it yields a pleasing result.
Skp: Slip one stitch knitwise from left to right needle, knit
the next stitch on the left needle, then pass the fi rst stitch
on the right needle (the slipped stitch) over the knitted stitch
and drop it off the needle.

DOUBLE DECREASES

Double decreases reduce three stitches to one and are a key


element in some lace patterns, as they have a more pronounced result than a single decrease.
Sk2p (slip 1, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over): Slip one
stitch knitwise from left to right needle. Knit the next two

(k2tog). Using the left needle tip, lift the

SWATCH 4

S2kp2 (slip 2, knit 1, pass 2 slipped

the next stitch on the left needle. Using
the left needle tip, lift the two slipped
stitches over the knitted stitch and
drop them off the needle.

Tangled up
in Blue
An Introduction to Indigo
Leslie Ordal

Blue is one of the rarest colors to occur in nature, and


as such, any substance that can confer the color to
textiles and other items has always been highly valued.
Synthetic dyes, usually cheaper and easier to use than
natural dyes, were first developed in the 1850s and were
subsequently adopted as the dyestuff of choice by most
textiles manufacturers. Yet one of the oldest natural
dyesindigohas retained a certain magic and mystery
that, along with its extraordinarily complex blue color,
have kept its dyeing traditions alive.
Indigo is derived from any number of plants, most of which
grow in the tropics, but also in the more temperate climes
of Europe and eastern Asia. Plants in the genus Indigofera
produce the greatest amount of indigo, but its also found
in substantial quantities in plants such as woad, which has
been cultivated in Europe as a dyestuff since at least 700
BCE. Indeed, indigo shows a remarkably long and varied
history of use throughout the world. Fragments of indigodyed linen were found on the urns containing the Dead Sea
Scrolls. Intricately patterned indigo-dyed cloth from Japan
has been traced back to at least the seventh century CE, with
the dye and its traditions likely brought over from China even
earlier. Woad mills dotted the landscape of thirteenth century
Germany, providing indigo to textile producers in other parts
of Europe. Plants of the Indigofera family flourished in the
southeastern United States in the late eighteenth to early
nineteenth centuries, a particularly dark chapter of the dyes
history wherein its demand and production supported the
transatlantic slave trade.
Indigo-dyed textiles have been recovered from archeological sites around the world, with cultures from Japan,
Southeast Asia, West Africa, Latin America, and Europe
each creating their own methods and rituals for the production and use of blue textiles. Many cultures use indigo to
make ikat textiles, where the yarn itself is dyed in sections
that will create a particular pattern when woventhese
have been especially important in Japan and other parts of

Asia. Japan has a strong tradition of indigo dyeing that has
dwindled to about a half-dozen families, but the knowledge
continues to be passed on and maintained. Several groups of
ethnic minorities in China are renowned for their unique use
of indigo, such as the Dong peoples preference for heavily
saturated and stiff indigo-dyed clothing, which is so dark
and shiny it takes on a metallic, almost coppery appearance.
This coppery look is also prized by the Touareg people of
the Sahara, who use mallets to pound indigo pigment into
already-dyed cloth. Indigo also retains a following in Mexico,
especially in Chiapas and Oaxaca. Even with the arrival of
both synthetically produced indigo and other synthetic blue
dyes, numerous small communities such as these keep the
practice of indigo production alive through their own local

and specialized methods of dyeing and textile creation. All


of these methods, however, must account for indigos unique
properties as a dye.
Unlike many natural dyestuffs, indigo does not require
the addition of a mordantanother substance, usually a
metal saltto fi x the color to the fi ber. The brilliant blue dye
extracted from plants also will not directly color any material.
Instead, indigo has an intriguing dye process that is unlike
almost any other. Indigotin is the proper name of the blue
pigment in indigo-bearing plants, but it will not act as a dye
unless fi rst dissolved in an alkaline (basic) solution. This turns
the pigment into leuco-indigo (also known as indigo white),
which is yellowish-green instead of blue. The dye will fi x to
the fi ber in the indigo-white solution, and then exposure to

air will convert the dye back into the recognizable blue of
indigotin. Indigo dyers have come up with a number of original
ways to facilitate this process, which usually takes place in a
large vat that will be used repeatedly to dye cloth and fiber.
Even though indigotin is the pigment present in all
indigo-bearing plants, the exact color of the dye derived from
different plants may vary. This is likely due to the presence
of other compounds present in the plants (such as indirubin,
also called indigo red, or flavonoids that add a yellow tinge),
which can affect the color. Synthetically produced indigo dye
does not have such a great degree of variation, as it is almost
entirely pure indigotin.
Whatever the source, and whatever the tradition, it is hard
to resist the allure of the rich and satisfying blue of indigo.
Whether its the ikat textiles of Asia, the copper-like brilliance of saturated Toaureg cloth, or even your favorite blue
jeans, indigo continues to entrance and inspire. The universality of our love for the color blue will likely keep natural
indigo dyeing alive for generations to come. s

Go beyond top-down or toe-up construction in
New Directions in Sock Knitting. In the eighteen
designs curated by knitting superstar Ann Budd,
youll be treated to projects that range from
traditional sock patterns to more challenging and
innovative sock constructions.
The socks in this collection use a variety of knitting
techniques including double knitting, intarsia in
the round, short-row shaping, mirrored color and
texture patterns, and multidirectional knitting
in both traditional and innovative ways. These
techniques will have you casting on and knitting
your socks from unexpected placesstarting at
the heel or sole or even from side to side! The
instructions are all written in step-by-step detail
that will ensure success, no matter which design
you choose to knit.
Original, innovative, and unique, its New
Directions in Sock Knitting!

Julia of Hand Knitted Things


(www.handknittedthings.blogspot
.com) uses her space on the Internet to share her lovely projects
and photography. Read on to learn
more about Julia!

Q

Q
A

How long have you been blogging?


H
Seven years, starting in November 2008.
Se
What inspired you to start a blog?
W
Starting the blog offered a way of
St
documenting my knitting projects
and sharing them with others. Having
been taught the basics of knit and purl
stitches as a child, I rediscovered knitting decades later. This, combined with
my interest in photography, provided an
outlet for my creative self.

Q
A

What types of projects do you like to


W
knit and blog?
Living on a croft in the northwest of
Li
Scotland, knitted hats and gloves always
come in useful! I travel often, so I like
small knitting projects such as hats,

gloves, and socks, as they are easy to


carry. Ive made several pairs of the Basic
Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley, because
they are great to wear with boots when
walking around the local hills. Occasionally, Ill embark on a larger project such
as a cardigan, but these usually take me
months to complete, so not many appear
on the blog! I also blog about my own
knitted designs from time to time. These
are inspired by the area and landscape
around my home. My Mini Croft House
pattern was inspired by a local building
located across the loch on the Applecross Peninsula.

Q
A

Which post has been your favorite to


W
write so far?
The post titled Berties Shetland Wool
Th
Jumper (www.bit.ly./Berties-Jumper).
I keep a small flock of Shetland sheep
in a variety of colors and have blogged
about the process of making their fleeces

into yarn. During 2015, six different


natural-colored yarns came back from
the spinners. My neighbor took some
of the yarn to make a sweater for her
dog, Bertie. She came up with a Fair Isle
sweater combining the different colors.
The result was lovely, and he looked
so cute wearing his woolly outfit made
from my sheep fleeces. He even called
round to my home specially to show me
his jumper and posed so I could take
hisphoto.

Q
A

Name one blog you love to read and


Na
share why you love it.
Ive been following the story of the inspiIv
rational Kate Davies (www.katedavies
designs.com) for a number of years.
She writes about her knitting designs
and more recently her new yarn range.
Her blog is extremely informative and
contains varied in-depth articles accompanied by beautiful photography.
