I didn’t quite manage to finish writing the post about brioche knitting I wanted to post this week, so I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a long time: a link post! (Click on the links tag at the bottom of the post to visit my other link posts. No guarantees that all sites linked in my older posts still exist, alas.)
Here’s five things elseweb I think are particularly interesting:
- The TECHknitting blog is back (this is big news by itself), and here’s a great article about some of why gauge varies from knitter to knitter.
- How to keep knitted hems from flipping up.
- A Kate Atherley article about different kinds of short rows: Short Row Basics, part 2. Part 1 is linked at the beginning of the article, so make sure to read it too if you’re new to short rows.
- A feature comparison of fourteen different interchangeable knitting needle sets.
- Here is a delightful video from an embroiderer, Charlie of the Stitchery channel on YouTube, who came up with a method for embroidering words using binary code and lattice stitching. This is right up my alley, and if you’re interested in my kind of knitting codes, you’ll like this too.
