line break

by Nova on May 2, 2013

the autumnal nip in the evening air here has encouraged me to reach for the sticks again. Yay.

I cast on Line Break at the weekend &  so far so good – ish. I had a bit of a hiccup with my foray into short rows last night so I need to back track a bit but with the help of the Short Row class (FREE!) on Craftsy, I  will be on my way again later I hope.

It’s a big knit, well the biggest thing I will have knit to date so I am not expecting a finish any time soon, meanwhile I am just enjoying the process & it feels nice to be playing with yarn again. :)

Yarn details & projects notes all over on Rav.

Ok, back to my Craftsy class to figure out those Short Rows!  Have you popped over to Craftsy yet? I have been enjoying their classes, I am currently mid way though another class (more on that in a later post when I have completed the course & perhaps a project or 2 related to it!).

As well as the paid full classes they offer lots of mini courses which are all free. Hurrah! While I love a good peruse around YouTube for a visual tutorial I’ve found the  Craftsy mini classes are really well structured and informative plus they are saved to your page so they are easy to find for future ref. There are plenty of sewing ones too of course!  Here’s another couple  I have in my stash to watch Creative Quilt Backs by Elizabeth Hartman (Oh, Fransson!) & also QuiltCon Lecture Series 2013 which features lectures from the event, given by Heather Jones, Angela Walters, David and Amy Butler, Jacquie Gering, and Mary Fons. FAB!

I enjoy all your creation. I haven’t tried knitting, yet. I can’t wait to see the finish. :)

Oh this is looking lovely Nova! What a fabulous yarn. I am just on the last run of another fan shawl (my fourth to date) but I just know that I’ll have cast on another before the end of the weekend! Luckily there are lots of chilly days still in England to justify it! x

That is looking gorgeous already. It’s been warm enough to go without a jumper here this week for the first time since September… Vicki must live ‘up North’! xxx

Look at you go! It looks perfect of course. You don’t have to knit the wrap on this one like you do on the socks…

funny, i am knitting (or was) veera’s secret of change (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/secret-of-change) and have color affection downloaded, too. i stopped somewhere after starting the short row section as i got something really mixed up!! i really love the lines and simplicity of her scarves and wondered if the class would help. do you remember which section helped the most? i started watching from the beginning some time ago and know it’s not all applicable!!
