    Both such beautiful pictures! Hope you two had a great Sunday!

  7. Sounds a lot like my Sunday afternoon! Also, I recently received “The Lovely Blog Award,” and I have the opportunity to pass it on. I read your blog through my RSS reader and love your posts. Here are the rules if you choose to accept:

  8. I just finished reading your entry on “Blame the Internet” re. steeking. I had to smile, as I actually ventured fearlessly into the world of steeking, blissfully ignorant that I was supposed to be afraid. When I googled the technique, I came across the article you had written for Knitty. At the time I was knitting Jade Starmore’s “Butterfly”, and your article was for reinforcing a Norwegian piece. Regardless, I figured out by looking through your stranded/Fair Isle projects, and my beloved VY site, that 2-ply Shetland was magic string and I’ve never once had an issue with unraveling. Or fear.

    I’ve also lived on the edge with Lopi wool. I just completed a coat, and could not figure out how I was going to shove the length of it through my sewing machine. I reinforced it by way of a crochet chain stitch along the top, cut the steek, and it’s already begun felting through use. The row of steek stitches are unraveled and make up a fringe along the opening.

    As always, I love your work Wendy!
