A Knitting Q&A

Alissa posted this quiz. I can’t pass up a good quiz.


1. Share an image of a knitting pattern you love but would probably never knit. Hue Shift Afghan. It’s gorgeous. I love it. There is no way I’d make it.

2. What is your favorite knitting technique? Cables

3. Yarn: wool, alpaca, cotton, linen, hemp, silk, or acrylic? Wool or wool blend

4. Needles: wood, bamboo, metal, plastic, or casein? Metal

5. Would you go on a knitting vacation? If yes, which country’s yarn shops would you like to visit? I’d love to go on a knitting vacation. It would have to be to Iceland. I’ve wanted to go there forever.

6. Lace, fingering, sport, DK, worsted, or bulky? (If you had to choose just one) Fingering

7. Do you eat while knitting? If so, what? Not usually but maybe a few M&Ms. I’ll pause my knitting to have a snack in the evening.

8. Speckled yarn: yes or no? Yes. I say yes to most yarn.

9. Favorite knitting slang word? Tink

10. Can you do anything else while knitting? Watching or listening to something doesn’t count. I have read while knitting stockinette. Doing so makes both my knitting and reading slow so I don’t do it regularly.

11. Favorite knitting pattern designer? Martina Behm for shawls. Elizabeth Zimmermann for clothing.

12. Favorite yarn brand? Cascade for workhorse yarns. The Uncommon Thread for Indy dyer.

13. Intentional felting: yes or no? Yes.

14. Who taught you to knit? My mother and grandmother.

15. What’s your next knit? I have a sweater WIP to finish and then I might cast on another sweater. We’ll see.

  2. Wow that blanket is beautiful, I can see why you like it. Looks like that would take me a few years to make.

  3. That is a beautiful blanket, but I wouldn’t do it either :)Every once in a while I try to read and knit at the same time and get the same results – so slow on both!

  4. Tink is such a great term. I love the blanket, but I would never knit it either.

  5. I made the hue shift, but made it a little smaller than the pattern – co 45 st per square. At this size, I only needed one skein each of the already inexpensive Knit Picks yarn. I really enjoyed playing with the color changes, and it was fairly portable. I also made an icord edge around the outside using the leftover colored yarns instead of the black border. It was a back burner project for about a year and a half. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/knitwish/hue-shift-afghan
