We have just begun to swatch for Harbor Springs Video KAL and it’s time to talk fit and the ever so mysterious “ease”. In the last video sweater class for Costa Maya I showed the same sweater tried on several different body types (The Many Shapes of Costa Maya.) This really helped people see how […]
Recently I wrote about how I designed the cables in the Early Fall Vogue Maker feature cardigan. I was very happy how the sweater turned out, but it was not without a few bumps in the road. Today I reveal a bit of riiiiiping that every knitter must go through!

Well, summer’s begun, and with it comes a flurry of activity! Here in Brooklyn kids are running around the neighborhood at all hours, and everyone is heading to the park in droves. It makes me thankful to have a quiet garden to retreat to, when I get the chance.
The love of German Short rows is strong in knitters! Last year we worked with the wrap and turn method in both the Tortola and the Rising Spadesand for Costa Maya we uses German short-rows. In April we learned out to substitute German Short Rows for Wrap and Turn and when I would and wouldn’t substitute. […]
