Show 11 – A long thread
Welcome to series 2. I enjoyed the break, but I’m also glad to be back. There’s a lot to get through in this week’s show. There’s a report on knitting while those around you lose their heads (not Madame Defarge, Turandot the opera). My new peojects for the new year and a review of Richard Rutt’s classic knitting book A history of hand knitting. And much, much more.
If you’re in Australia and interested in getting the KnitPicks interchangeable needles, here’s the link. The Icarus shawl I’m making is here, and the instructions for knitting backwards are here.
