Quote of the day

"Take anything you find in an instruction book, including this one, with a large grain of salt... There are scores of different ways of doing things in knitting, and none of them are wrong, but they are sometimes unsuitable."
- Elizabeth Zimmermann, Knitting Without Tears
It's also a relief to discover that someone as knowledgeable as her also had issues with the long-tail cast-on. I will not feel guilty for continuing to use my "knitting-on" cast-on, although I will experiment with knitting between each stitch instead of through each stitch.
Today Melbourne has a sudden temperature drop so I am wearing my lovely warm purple wool handknit socks and over-sized grey handknit jumper. Mmm. Cosy.
