Links I’ve Liked This Week

Posted by mtmom on January 9, 2011

Work continues on the 2 tams for summer 2011 Cast On, but in the mean time, here are some links to a video, a photo tutorial, a clever product, and a lovely poem.  The first 3 were referenced in a recent Berroco KnitBits e-newsletter, and the last, from Nicky Epstein’s “Talks from the Yarniverse” interview by the folks at the Lion Brand studio in NYC.

(1)  Berroco video about attaching a buttonband that has been knit separately (Norah Gaughan) (embedding not working today);

(2)  Photo tutorial by Sarah of the “Live and Let Knit. . . and Craft” blog, about a Japanese version of 3-needle bind-off;

(3)  Make your own fabric-covered buttons with a kit, recommended by Cirilia Rose of Berroco;

(4)  Loved this Knitter’s Christmas poem when I heard interviewer-Patty and Nicky Epstein read it at the end of their “Yarniverse” video interview.  It was written for Nicky by her husband as a Christmas gift!

    I’ve missed being able to blog more regularly, but catching the train at 4:50 in the morning is harder than I thought. i do get more knitting done, but tend not to post them. My knitting has really been in demand with family and friends clammering for it. I especially like the look of the pink tam, very soft and feminine looking.

      Good for you, Jean, making that EARLY train, and getting so much well- appreciated knitting done! And thanks so much for the tam feedback. (I really like that one too!)
