About Kathleen Cubley

Hello daily knitters! I'm the editor of Knitting Daily. I've been obsessed with knitting for about ten years now and my favorite projects are sweaters. I like the occasional smaller project, but there's nothing like yards of stockinette with a well-placed cable or a subtle stitch pattern here and there. I crochet a bit now and then—especially when I need to produce a baby blanket in time for the baby shower. I've been in publishing for 20 years and I'm finally exactly where I want to be: at the crossroads of knitting and communication. I live in Spokane, Washington and when I'm not knitting I enjoy gardening, snuggling with my dogs, swimming, reading, and playing in the snow in the winter. But, really, I'm pretty much always knitting!

  1. Good afternoon:

    I’m hoping you can help me with one of these patterns, the Ribby Slipper Socks. I don’t know how to change from knitting in the round to knitting flat, as the pattern calls for after round 6 to begin the leg opening. I’ve searched the internet and simply can’t find anything relating to that. I’ve tried but all my stitches won’t fit on one needle.

    So how does one unjoin rounds to knit flat? Help!!!!

    Thanks for any assistance you can provide. I’d like to understand the “ingenious construction”! I don’t have any LYS so this is maddening …

  4. @sheilla Keep all the stitches on the DPNs. Just TURN the work when you get to the end of a row and then purl the purl stitches & knit the knit stitches. Turn again when you reach the end of the row. The work won’t be joined between the 1st & 3rd needles for the heel. You’ll then pick up stitches along the selvage to create the cuff.

  5. Thank you so much for these fantastic patterns! I love everyone of them! I so admire the thoughtful designs of Interweave Knits. Always thoughtful, special and fabulous. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to make use of them all. I refuse to give up knitting, but I am plagued with arthritic joints and connective tissue problems which limits my choices in which designs I can go for. I can use the needle sizes here. The tiny ones, sadly I can’t. And the yarns are all practical choices I can find in my area or workable substitutes. May I ask, can you include information more often on ways knitters with limits can make adjustments to a pattern where necessary? I would so love to use many many more interweave designs!
