The new Twist Collective came out recently, and I thought I’d give you a glimpse at the elements that went into inspiring Ziarre. As with my last Twist Collective Design, Sachertorte, I was inspired by a vintage silhouette (read about my last Design Inspiration) as well as a bit of nature.

Build a Better Fabric: Combination Knitting
Description of Class
Have you tried learning continental, but the purl messes you up? Do you feel like you often have uneven tension? Or perhaps you are already a combination knitter and you’ve ever been told you knit “wrong”, or been asked “what are you doing”, take heart . . . there are no wrong ways to knit as long as we control our stitches. A combination knitter works through the back loop to knit, and the front loop to purl. It can be a fast and easy way to knit, but simple adjustments must be made to follow Western patterns, like how to knit in the round, and understand left and right slanting increases and decreases, and how to work twisted pattern stitches. If you are a Western knitter, then learn the amazing advantages to this knitting methods and how and when you would combine it with your own. If you are a Combination Knitter, learn how to make stitches better and easier for your style.
Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, know simple increase and decreases. Recognize the knit and purl stitch and be able to work them in a pattern without supervision.

This year I spent my birthday with the Rochester Knitting Guild. If a girl has to be away from her hubby on her birthday this is a pretty great place to be. I was surrounded by wonderful knitters who were funny, nice and talented . . . and there was cake involved.
