Pause and Take a Deep Breath

I will be off camping nextweek in Lac La Biche, and back on Monday 6/19 with new pictures and stories and knits (I contemplated taking three knitting projects with me for the five-day trip, if that tells you anything!).

Until then, enjoy these links:

This method results in a beautiful, neat neckline

Although books about sweater construction are very common, I've had lots of trouble finding similar resources about shawl construction.  Holly Chayes has comprehensive coverage here

Lise is an amazingly talented knitter and sewist; I wish I could accomplish so much! (website is in French but the images speak for themselves)

Some of my favourite podcasts for knitting: Because News and International Waters (if you like quiz shows), and Double X Gabfest, The Guilty Feminist, and Call Your Girlfriend (if you like your feminism thoughtful and funny)

Enjoy your week, everyone!
