I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of cast ons and bind offs beyond the basics. You can find it on Amazon here.
Now I know I promised a peek at the design I'm working on, but I seem to have hit a snag. Somehow I keep ending up with two extra stitches and I can't figure out why. I'm thinking I will have to knit up a second sample to figure out where the problem is, which won't be too bad since I was planning on knitting a heavier weight version anyway. It will just take a bit longer for me to get it to you, dear Knitters.
But in other news, after I finish up my current commission, I have a design lined up for Knit Picks using their Aloft yarn in 4 gorgeous colors. I can't wait to get it started! I've already used Aloft in my Mariposa Shawl design, and it is heavenly soft and WARM. I couldn't believe how warm this lightweight lace shawl kept me.
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
