On The Edge

Brrr! It's a cold and windy morning in New York City. While I really wanted to stay home with my tea and my knitting, I compromised with some subway knitting.

I'm especially happy with this edge. The pattern directs me to use a slip-stitch edging, and for the first time I've achieved matching edges with both a slipped purl and slipped knit stitches. Maybe this was obvious to all of you, but I like my edges much better if I relocate the yarn for the following stitch after I slip the first stitch. Normally, I would have done this only for the knits. Thus: uneven looking edges stitches.

I've been knitting for ten years, and I'm still finding little ways to make my projects better.

 

I'm glad to hear I am not the only life long learner. I've been knitting for 47 years and still learn some little tidbit every time I'm with other knitters. It makes for better projects and relationships too. Love all the new fibers too!

I still haven't mastered the art of the slipped purl. LOVE the slipped knit.

Thought of you last night as I knit on the Red Line. on my way to an XMas party in town. Was all dolled up with the heels, strappy dress and a sparkly bag. And a sock for the train.

are there really people out there who don't know what fluff is?
that's sad.
