But that also means housekeeping! Things I have neglected for--let's hope not 15 years--are being attended to (like cleaning out the bathroom cupboards). One of the bigger things was to make my BLOG into a real BLOG (that you could subscribe to)!
In the past, my BLOG was just a document I wrote and posted on my website. But now I have subscribed to blogspot.com (and how easy what THAT?!?!), so people can subscribe. I will eventually transfer all those old posts. But you may always visit my website--www.sallymelvilleknits.com--for lots of free patterns, an offer of free knitters' graph paper, knitting tips, my schedule, etc. Hope to see you there, hope to see you here, hope to see you somewhere!
PS The subject of the book is pattern drafting. I am very excited about it: it's wonderfully comprehensive, and it's probably the material I love to teach most.
Some call this work "design," but there is a difference. Design is finding the vision of the garment you want to make: drafting is turning the vision into a garment.
My first suggestion to anyone approaching this material is to
- go to your closet
- find something you love that you did not knit
- use the material of the book to measure, draft, knit it!
