Fridays with Franklin: From Bun to Blanket

One authority’s response was, “Granny squares? Oh, they’re easy. Just a ring and then double crochet and make sure to work four corners. You can do more corners or fewer if you want a different shape. Okay? Bye.”

I was reminded of a Victorian knitting pattern in my collection that instructs you to make a baby’s jacket by first casting on “stitches sufficient to reached around the baby.”  Super helpful. Thanks.


Nothing gets me over-excited like trying out a new way to knit a familiar shape. I hate stopping to eat, or answer e-mails, or see people. I just want to go go go go go go until I find out whether it’s going to work or not.

Cage Match, Part Three

I was at a gathering once with a knitter who held up her shawl-in-progress and squealed, “This has been so much fun to knit! I’m actually slowing down because I don’t want it to end!”

I had no idea what she was talking about.
