All morning I’ve been “down the rabbit hole”. This is how I describe the phenomena of being swept away from web link to link, with no visible end. Eventually you take pause and wonder how you arrived at where you landed. This time spent in the hole I have no regrets about. I learned so much.
I think it started here ↓These instructions on how to make a garter stitch tab at the beginning of your shawl project may not interest everyone, but I urge you all to check out Tricksy. This site is replete with interesting things like this↓
It was just the other day, I was admiring the well-marked paper pattern I was working from. Decorated with chicken scratches, check marks, and circles, it was full of the history of my knitting adventures. I wondered to myself how folks with iPads managed to follow a pattern, unable to draw pictures and make notes where necessary. I mumbled to myself “I bet there’s an app for that”, and of course there is. A PDF reader in fact. Read about it here
I will never get the hours back I spent playing with this Chart Maker, but I don’t care!
I also found, in no particular order:
this very useful head/hat size chart↑
a tutorial on how to weave in ends which includes weaving into ribbing stitch!
a how-to decode decreases: how to make them, how they look, and when to use them.
There was more
but I think that is quite enough for today!
Apologies if you get trapped in the rabbit hole.
