    It's November, and many of you smart knitters already have your gift knitting well in hand. But some of us don't, and we need some ideas STAT! We moved last weekend, and God knows where my stash is, so I'm out this year, methinks. But it's not too late for you! Save yourself! I've...

  • Learn Something New: Vertical Stranding

    Lorilee Beltman is so great. She's a knitter, designer, teacher, and innovator. She developed a super cool color knitting technique—vertical stranding. At the second Sock Summit, I was lucky enough to take a class from Lorilee and learn her vertical stranding technique. It's very slick...

Sometimes this means I get to learn along with the readers. In Knitscene Winter 2014 , we included a small section...

  • 7 Must-Knit Patterns for Fall

    This weekend was the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, more colloquially known as Rhinebeck. The weather was... odd, but the people were fantastic, and the sheep were sheepy. I went with the goal of only buying yarn to make a gift for my mom, and ended up falling in love with the idea of an orange sweater...

  • Use a Toe-up Sock Cast-on to Work Hems

    Have you ever worked toe-up socks? There are a few methods to cast on for a seamless toe in these "backwards" beauties--methods such as the figure 8 cast-on, which requires winding yarn in figure 8's around two double-pointed needles to create parallel sets of stitches on two needles. A...

    We just launched this kit for the Whitewood Beret and Mitts from fall Interweave Knits , and it got me thinking about my stash of berets...time to pull them out for Fall.

  • A Matched Set

    Do you like things to match? I do, sorta. I don't love a matchy-match, such as patterned tee shirt with a hoodie lined with that same patterned fabric, but I do like to pick up colors among the elements of my outfit. A stripped scarf in which one of the stripes matches my top; that's what I'm...

  • A Work of Art in Handpainted Yarns: the Daisy Field Sock kit

    As sock knitters, I feel like we all have at least one thing in common—we're frequently drawn to the fun multicolored yarns. Variegated, hand-painted, space-dyed—you name it. We want it. And then we hold our newly acquired skein of variegated sock yarn and think "...now I have to...
