January 29, 2006 by knitter Short knitting sabbatical LC-USF34-014621-D This week I’ve taken a bit of a break from the needles so that I can do a little bit of reading and research on both lace and two-end knitting. I’ll be back next week. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
I love that picture!
Can’t wait to see what you do with the two-end knitting. I keep taking an old paperback out of the library that has an article about it and a pattern for mittens.
I believe there’s also a pattern in “Homespun, Handknit” and Beth Brown-Reinsel has a pattern for some cute socks.
Can’t believe I’m just getting around to the whole two-end knitting concept.
The other day I came across a book titled “Hand Knitting Techniques” published by Threads Magazine. It has a couple of articles about this topic and includes a mitten pattern. Perhaps this is the book you’ve seen.
I’m trying to get my hands on another old book called Twined Knitting. Apparently, it’s popular and/or rare because it cost a small fortune to buy used. I check with the two library systems in my area and several of the copies are “missing” or haven’t been returned.
The Japanese book that I mentioned in an earlier post has some two-end knit mittens and a hat that I’d like to knit. They’re done in two colors, black and a multi-colored yarn.
