  • Just Imagine

    I love boxed books. Singles, sets, whatever. Take a handsome book, put it in a slipcase, and it becomes a treasure. The book doesn’t even have to have been that handsome, really. I think of the boxed sets of Laura Ingalls Wilder paperbacks my grandchildren have all loved. So much more impressive...

  • 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...

  • Captivating Knitting

    The Nereid Shawl Knit lace is captivating. I've always been attracted to lace, especially lace edgings for pillowcases and hankies and the like. Perhaps the most epic lace knitting projects are shawls. The beauty of lace translates wonderfully; the ethereal quality of the openwork lends itself to...

  • Knit Shawls You'll Wear!

    People have been knitting shawls for centuries. Shawls are knitted for practical reasons, such as keeping us warm, and for special occasions such as weddings or births. And some shawls are knit just for the fun and challenge of knitting them. Kate Gagnon Osborn's Conifer Shawl is a favorite of mine...

  • Knitting to Travel With

    When I travel, I always take a knitting project. On my recent trip to New York City, I took a shawl, which was a great travel project. It was knit from the tip upward, so it started out small; I got a lot done on the plane rides, but the shawl never got too big to deal with in my tiny plane bubble. Amy...
