Torreyana Shawl: Knitty Spring+Summer 2010 Casting On: This shawl begins with a provisional cast on, worked at what will become the border between the shawl body and the edging. To avoid having to pick up hundreds of stitches from an ordinary provisional cast on, Judy’s Magic Cast-On is recommended, worked using two circular needles. This way, when it comes time to work the edging, the edging sts are already waiting on a needle. Mop Top Mascots © June Gilbank 2009 Mop Top Mascots are a fun way to use up scraps of yarn.

Transferring Dart Markings from Pattern to Fabric – Tutorial I mentioned last time that I was working on Colette’s Crepe pattern, and so far it’s coming along all thanks to Gertie’s Sew-Along posts! I’ll have more construction details later but I thought I’d share a tip about how I transfer my pattern dart markings to paper because I’m really not a fan of thread tracing (but I will do it if I have to) and I don’t always feel like using tailor’s tacks and I haven’t used a tracing wheel/carbon paper yet so this has been working for me so far! Before I begin, let me just highlight that I always work from a tracing of the original patterns, and you may wish to as well if you’re using this method and don’t want to damage the original pattern.

Cabled iPad Sleeve (Pattern) « haramis knits As promised, I tinkered with the Kindle sleeve pattern, and now have an iPad version available. I should have anticipated that there would be a demand for the pattern in the first place, as right after I finished my Kindle sleeve, my friend Abbie, also known as The Green Wife, asked if I could make her one for her iPad. If I’d listened to her at the time, I would have had both patterns ready at the same time! Instead, I spent the last couple of days knitting one up for her, this time out of some lovely The Plucky Knitter Superwash Merino Worsted in Love Letters, and I dropped it off at her house yesterday. She sent me some lovely photos of it today, so I can now share the pattern with her photography. I plan to knit a second iPad sleeve out of Malabrigo Worsted for a future giveaway, so please check back!
