Knitting Socks: Matching Striped Socks

Knitting socks from self-striping yarn always seems like a good idea, doesn’t it? You get beautiful, color stripes with no ends to weave in.

Knit Sweaters (and more!) for Every Day

Entrelac Knitting: A Master Class

I have had a couple of entrelac knitting projects in my queue for a few years, and I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t cast them on yet! One is the Albatross Cowl, shown at right. Isn’t it pretty? I love the scale of it, and that it can be worn as a cowl, buttoned…
