Oh dear, what has the world come to when there are knitting memes to be completed! There will be a real post soon, probably tomorrow after SNB about the progress of the Over the Kneee Stockings. Until then, tide yourselves over with my answers to Jewell's meme:
What is your all-time favourite yarn to knit with? Lamb's Pride Bulky or Karabella's Auroras (but I try not to play favorites)
Your favourite needles? Clover Bamboo Straights
The worst thing you've ever knit? Those goddamn slippers from Weekend Knitting
Your most favourite knit pattern? Cabled Newsboy hat from SNB Nation - mostly for the bill. I really liked doing the bill!
Most valuable knitting technique? Cables - they can make something so simple look fancy and difficult.
Best knit book or magazine? For technique: Stitchn' Bitch by Debbie Stoller. For patterns: right now I'm favoring Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick (though I'm not sure why, you'll understand after I've written up that post.)
Your favorite knit-a-long? I don't really do knit a longs.
Your favorite knitblogs? Check out the sidebar
Your favorite knitwear designer? I don't really have one.
The knit item you wear the most? In the winter, the Sparkly Hat from the first SNB. Or any of the myriad of scarves I own.
I will pass this on to Mud and Katy!!! Have fun kids!
