We can all probably agree that I’m a bit (or more) obsessed with knitting. Most nights I go to bed reading about knitting, looking at patterns or watching knitting videos. Not long ago, and I think I mentioned it here, Denise sent me a link to a video about a very neat way to make buttonholes. She shared pictures of a sweater she finished using this technique for buttonholes.
Ever since seeing the video Denise shared with me, I couldn’t wait to make buttonholes and try the technique. Last night I was able to try those buttonholes and I am so happy with how they turned out.
They’re close to perfect and after having done them, I think I can make the next ones even closer to perfect.
I know I’ve mentioned it before but The Knitting Guild Association has so much info available to members, including articles and patterns that are published in their quarterly publication, all of which are available online and can be downloaded as individual pdfs. I believe the dues are $25 per year and it is so worth that price.
Don’t forget about youtube videos. I don’t think there’s anything you can’t find on youtube. When I’m not sure how to make a certain stitch or something isn’t making sense to me, I can almost always find clarification on youtube.
I’m so thankful to be living where there’s so much information at our fingertips. I do remember the days when I pulled out a World Book encyclopedia when I needed to find information. Yes, I waste too much time on the internet and yes, there are bad things that happen on the internet or because of the internet but it certainly can be an invaluable resource.
