In this episode: The thing that must not be mentioned, which we will never speak of again. Two stacks of knitting, both alike in dignity, in fair Llanteg, where we lay our scene. A summation of knitting triumphs and tragedies from the past several months. Data about the data. What’s next for Cast On.
Tragedies: Ester. I knit a cleverly constructed sweater that turned out not to be my sweater. It was some other girl’s sweater, and I’m sure she looks great in it.The Summit Shawl. I want one. Just not in this yarn.
Triumphs: Knitting! Stacks and stacks of it. Very pleasing. Especially the Simmer Dim, by Gudrun Johnston. After months of personal knitting FAILS, finally, a successful project where yarn like buttah and a pattern of extraordinary ease and beauty result in a knitting project that doesn’t suck. Lessons in getting out of the way of your knitting.
My new shop! Look around. Links to the shop and are here, there and everywhere.
Data about the data running through our knitting, our lives and, in particular, one project of enormous weight and substance. You can almost smell the meta coming off this project. The Artist’s Edition of the CD ships later this month. If you need a dose of meta NOW, baby, check out the cool meta badges on Felix’s blog and in her Etsy Shop. (Meta badges like these ship with the Artist’s Edition. Made from vintage knitting patterns, they are the awesome.)
