The annual Big Event of the MN Knitters’ Guild, Yarnover, has come and gone. I took Japanese Knitting with Donna Druchuna, she of Ethnic Knitting Discovery. Awesome class. I learned how to convert this
And how to turn this
into a full sweater.
The Japanese patterns are amazing. A small block of text, a few schematics and maybe a stitch chart, and there it is, everything you need to knit a garment. That they are all sized small or extra small means some adjustments are needed, but that is why knitting is good for your brain. Ya gotta keep thinkin’.
Anyway, it made for a very fun day, and yes, my brain is tired. In 3 weeks and 10 minutes, my little girl will be walking down the aisle, so I think it is time I go concentrate on other things. Like the sweater I am supposed to wear that is still no more than a peplum. A very lovely peplum, but it needs a bit more, really.
