Hope this is the correct place.... I'm currently "trying" to knit the Sipula Bag but have hit a snag.... I'm working the the triangle center pieces and it doesn't click in my brain... Any advice, tricks or hints on how to work the four triangles.
Jerri, I suggest two places to ask about this. First, click here for discussion about this bag over in the Colorwork KAL. I haven't done this pattern myself or I would give you more of an answer.
Also, we just started a new KAL — Ask the Fairy Godknitters. You might start a discussion there. We think this will be a good place to ask questions of all sorts. I think since this KAL is new, you will certainly get a response there.
Has anyone knitted the Elwood E. Elephant yet? I am thinking about doing it for a new baby. Her nursery is Dr. Seuss. I thought it would make a nice toy/room decoration.
What do you want from the book? I mean, are you looking to learn new techniques, patterns, etc. or are you looking to glean insights into EZ's life? Each of the books that Cheryl mentions have different purposes in mind. All are wonderful and well worth getting!
Knitting Workshop also comes in video format (DVD) which is a bit of a companion to the book. You could check your local library to borrow them and get an idea of what it covers before purchasing them.
Knitting Around is a fascinating look into her life and how she "discovered" her special way of knitting. It has patterns dispersed between diary-like entries regarding her life and travels as a young woman. I love all her books and have most of them.
Also, her daughter, Meagan, has authored quite a few as well. Good Luck! It's a tough choice for just one....
Excellent suggestion on looking at them at the local library before deciding which to get. And excellent descriptions of the books.
Thanks for the suggestions. I don't really know what I want from them. It's just that she's a classic, and everyone talks about her, so I want something by her. Maybe I'll end up collecting them all.
Has anyone here knit or is familiar with the Thick Knit Car Coat pattern?
Sorry! But I don't know anything about this pattern.
The link to the errata already on the site is HERE. You might have to scroll down to the pattern- they're in alphabetical order on the page.
