  • Who doesn't need some tweed?!

    One of the stories in Knitscene Fall has to do with Tweed. We lobbied to shoot this particular story in Scotland but alas, it was not in the stars.

  • Autumn and Knitting: Perfect Harmony

    Ropemaker Pullover by Ashley Rao It's still plenty hot here in Spokane, but the temperatures are starting to drop more quickly at night, and the mornings are nice and cool.

  • Short-Rows: A New Method

    Gentle Waves Bag by Myra Wood. Get the free pattern! Short-rows are a valuable tool to have in your knitting tool box.

  • Throwback Thursday: My First Sockupied

  • Learn It: Reading Charts

    Certain knitting techniques come easier to some than to others. Reading charts, for example, was easy to me from the beginning. I worked a lot of cable charts after knitting my first few sweaters, so I became used to applying the symbols on the chart to my knitting. Texture and eyelets create a fun pattern...
