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!
