Can any of you, gentle knitter-readers, relate to this photo? It is of the neckline of my Evolving Sweater, on which I was picking up stitches when the Expensive Circular Needle, an Addi Turbo, simply folded over and broke. I have occasionally destroyed bamboo-tipped circs, but never a metal one. That is, never until yesterday. Imagine my shock and horror, if you will. It's not as if I'm stronger than I realize, nor was I adrenalin-fortified at that moment. I would be interested in hearing from the knitting public about similar mishaps, so please be in touch.
As is my custom, I've asked my knitting friends to share knitting resolutions for the coming year. Here are most of them:
My resolution is to complete a few fair isle projects and to write more neuroscience-themed blog posts. The first post for the year will be about how fair isle knitting exercises the prefrontal cortex.
Two pics are attached, showing some swatches that I've been playing with.
