So I read this story and just HAD to draw it. I can’t even remember the last time I did a comic… It was so fun! I’ll have to do more. :)

"Really, all you need to become a good knitter are wool, needles, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence. Of course, superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage." ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

Favorite missing book quotes Hermione’s hats

I’m pretty sure Hermione’s knitting skills are just fine… but seeing as Ron lives with Mrs. Weasley (knitting witch extraordinaire!) he probably has really high knitting quality standards.

Since I’m on a bit of a quirky bend, check out this amazing, but odd, but totally AMAZING, Parrot Scarf.  For purchase via Ninafuehrer on Etsy.  One for the knitters.

Tonight, I finished what I have been working on for the last two months about an hour before my “deadline”. This is my first anniversary dress.

Based on the 1930’s Alora Evening Gown Pattern x

Knitted with 100% cotton fine crochet yarn from Michael’s (the name escapes me at the moment).

This is probably the most frustrating and rewarding things I have ever made. I could not for the life of me get the three gores of the skirt to all be the same length (see my previous post about undoing a 248 stitch cast off…twice). I finally figured it out and could not be more pleased with the result. I bought a slip from Goodwill, modified it to be backless, sewed some cuppies in the top, and attached the whole thing to the dress.

I felt like Kate Middleton in this dress. I received so many compliments (usually accompanied with an expression of shock) about it. I even heard a group of three women whisper about how beautiful it was as I walked by. In my book, there is no higher praise to a knitter. 

I am positively glowing over my latest project and intend to wear it for the fall Dapper Day Soiree in September. 

239 notes in two days? You guys….I’m flattered.

University of Washington student Geraldine Gilbert knitting, Seattle, 1918

Not one to waste time, Miss Geraldine Gilbert, sophomore in the college of pharmacy at the University of Washington, knits two socks at one time. Knitting with the standard four needles she knits one sock inside the other. The outside sock is knit ‘inside out,’ the American way, while the inside sock is knit ‘right side out,’ the Continental way. She was able to make one sock per day while knitting on street cars and during class lectures, or at least during classes with lenient ‘profs.’ Miss Gilbert donated her knitting to the downtown Seattle headquarters of the American Red Cross.
