SAVING THE WORLD - ONE STITCH AT A TIME

THE WOOLLY ARSENALLIST PURLS ON:

  • and is a very happily retired high school English teacher who is slightly confused and perturbed by the fact that she now knits more than she reads. Who knew that there was SUCH mystery, passion, sensuality, excitement and solace to be found in wool? Meanwhile, there are a thousand projects on the go at any one time. Knitting in public is a joy and it is her aim to be photographed in swanky restaurants and social gatherings multitasking, thus proving that creativity and psychosocial satisfaction are the new black.

THE WOOLLY ARSENALIST IS ALSO A FLAPPER OF WINGS

I am MsBubblefish on Ravelry

IT'S IN THE BAG - ON THE NEEDLES -ON THE WHEEL

  • Yes, I confess. I am a KNITTAHOLIC.
    At any one time I will have about six or seven projects on the go. Some are better to knit in the daylight hours. Some are easier to take to the wine bar because one does not have to overly concentrate. I haven't taken my wheel to the pub, but there is time yet. Carding boards and weaving looms are portable. Sock knitting is a joy. It all depends on the pattern. Dinosaur armour plates. Cupcakes. Strawberries. Small bears. Hexapuffs for a quilt. Arne and Carlos' Christmas balls. Then there is the boyfriend I promised to knit Senior Constable Emma ;) I'll post photographs below. Eventually.

KNIT TIPS I WISH I'D REMEMBER

  • TOO MANY PROJECTS ON THE GO???
    Neglected projects? Carefully NOTE which part of the pattern you are up to every time you put a project down - line, stitch count, whatever. Keep pattern and yarn and needles altogether. If you adapted pattern, note HOW - any needle size changes, cast on changes etc. YOU WILL RUE THIS IF YOU DON'T.
