The internet has so many great resources for knitting.
Everyone knows about Ravelry of course and You Tube videos.
I would like to tell you about a great site called Planet Purl.
It is run by Beth Moriarty and it is full of free lessons and other knitterly stuff.
Last night I signed up for her free class on knitting a moebius. Yes I bought the Cat Bordhi's book (2004), A Treasury of Magical Knitting where she talks about the moebius and the magic of the design. I looked at all the pretty pictures and promised myself I would knit at least one design. I vaguely remember looking at the directions for the cast on and saying , "manyana" ("an indefinite time in the future" according to the freedictionary.com).
When I saw the Sunset Moebius class offered on Planet Purl I knew I had to sign up, even though of course I did not really have the time. But there is nothing like seeing someone doing something even if she is in the virtual world.
I feel very "techy" when I am sitting there in front of my computer taking a class. And believe me I am not (just ask my kids!)
I am a pretty good knitter, I design, I constantly read about knitting, some people would even tell you that I knit in my sleep, but this cast on blew me away. I made some mistakes and I will have to start over. But there is a class next week to finish up the moebius with a beaded picot bind off or an I-chord bind off.
Her classes are archived and you can go back to them from what I understand, but I haven't tried that yet.
I took another class from her, 2 at a time socks! It should be archived and I keep meaning to go back and look at it again. Manana...........
