Blog Contest Entries
As the final chapter in another QueerJoe blog contest, I present all of the entries. Which would you have selected?
Guest Blog Entries
I was going to try and combine all of the entries into one HTML or PDF page, but it proved too difficult for my technical skills and/or patience. Instead I present links to each blog entry.
Enjoy the reading.
I finished a few more inches on the final sleeve for Passing Lane, and it’s moving along at a good clip now.
I am more and more optimistic each day that I’ll be able to present the Rebekah II sweater to the Unicorn editor at Stitches.
I also have to get a picture of Rebekah wearing her cotton version of the sweater when I get it finished. Those of you who know me, know I’m not overly fond of children. I make the exception for some children, and Rebekah is certainly one of those for whom I make an exception.
She is an absolutely beautiful child with a matching personality.
There are a lot of folks that know Annie Modesitt from her blog, Modeknit. She’s quite an amazing designer, but she’s also given a great gift to those of us who suffer wrist pain when we knit by documenting what she calls combined knitting.
It’s basically a method of creating the same Knit and Purl stitches as standard knitting, but done without as much wrist turning.
When I first taught myself to knit, I taught myself incorrectly how to purl (by wrapping in the wrong direction), and ended up with twisted stitches. I knit that way for the first year.
Now Annie shows how I could use that to my best advantage. Thanks Annie for documenting a great idea and sharing it with web knitters.
