Too many projects syndrome

Posted on | November 8, 2007 | 5 Comments

I went into the city yesterday and finally got a copy of the winter issue of Interweave Knits. Seeing it physically in my hands was quite different than seeing it online – it feels more real somehow. And it’s thrilling to see my name in the table of contents alongside some of my favorite designers.

Speaking of favorite designers that are in the winter IK, I’m almost done with Angela Hahn’s Dragon Skin Wrap. Here it is, waiting to be blocked.

    I have to go buy my issue today! I too have that problem with loose edge sts….
    and that scarf -Juno Regina- is beautiful. I hadn’t seen it before. It’s hard to keep up!

    I’m glad you have your own copy of IK!
    I’ve never used Annie Modesitt’s edging, but I always thought it looked very neat.

    Nice job on the Dragon Skin wrap! I found that when I blocked it, stretching the diagonal opening edge in the process, the edge stitches looked more even. Also remember they’re slipped stitches, so each one is 2 rows long. I noticed that scarf pattern too–really pretty. (Did you see the Knitting Daily poll results? Your Henley is #1 in popularity in the Winter issue! Congratulations!)

    Loved all your sweater designs – I was flipping through my copy of IK and noticed your design. I’ll have to try to get a copy of the summer Knitter’s. I’m glad to hear that Knitting Etc. is thriving under new ownership. You may have a vague recollection of me from the department based one flight up the stairs from yours in Clark Hall.
