Nouvelle ligne outil de tricotage: taille Calculator Shaping So it's Friday. It's Spring. Don't you think we all deserve a little teensy goodie today? Tricot à partir de votre cachette: tirer le meilleur parti de votre fils! While most people spend the first few weeks of January thinking about diet- and exercise-related resolutions for the new year, we knitters have all resolved to buy less yarn and to knit only from our stashes. Am I right? You did, didn’t you? Of course, like all resolutions, these intentions will be abandoned by March 1; however, while we dig around in and rediscover our lovely stashes, I thought I would put together a quick tutorial on how to use up every last bit of sock yarn, for the stashbusting inclined.

"Tableau de multiples augmentations et diminutions" I had a great time this week speaking at the Around the Bay Knitters' Guild, in Dundas, Ontario. We had a fun discussion on Sizing and Fit. The most interesting part of the evening, however, was a handout offered to the rest of the membership by the lovely and clever Anne, a long-standing member of the group. The handout is the Machine Knitter's "Chart for Multiple Increases and Decreases". It's a very clever sheet that provides a mostly math-free way of figuring out how to evenly distribute decreases across a row.

Provisional Cast On A provisional cast-on keeps cast-on stitches "live" so that they can be knit later. It's a very useful technique when you're not sure what kind of edging you'll want or how long to make something. With a provisional cast-on, you can make these decisions at the end of a project, allowing you to respond to the actual garment. I made this tutorial to go with my 70's Ski Hat Project Journal, the provisional cast-on is used to make a cashmere lining for the hat. There are a few ways to make a provisional cast-on.
