Read this great Atlas Obscura article about knitting and espionage. Did you know the UK banned knitting patterns for fear of hidden messages during WWI? These spies were absolutely brilliant. Why is there not a British TV series about this? Or is there?
Three’s A Throw
I was gifted these great, wide, wooly scarves a few years ago. While each of these scarves are truly wonderful on their own, I decided they would be more wonderful and get more use if I stitched them together.
I picked a grey wool yarn to just whipstitch them. I like the contrast, and the visible stitches. Three unworn scarves are now one chunky, graphic, textural throw to hunker down for a rainy weekend of British TV and cooking shows. It remind me of a Swiss army watch for some reason.
The Most Frequently Asked Question
What is the most frequently asked question knitters receive? Pretty sure it is “How long did that take you to knit that?” Am I right?
I recently bought a couple ginormous balls of Noro Kureopatora, and I am dying to cast on for this lovely striped blanket that I can’t seem to forget since I saw it at Close Knit in Portland, Oregon.
I figure it will take forever to knit, and maybe longer, so I may need to order some of these awesome woven labels… but no time soon.
