I’m still in my Stephen West phase; finished the Honeycombs shawl, then the Botanic, which I gave to my friend Coton Julie, who looked after my puppy for me in the UK for six weeks (no truer friend!!) before we could get him to Hong Kong where I live. Now I’m on Crystal Fragments, having just done SW’s Modular Knitting course which I highly recommend to anyone new to modular knitting. He also, in that course, explains his version of how to do short rows, which seems to me to beat all the other ways hollow. It is SO easy. And SO effective. I’ve also got Cafe Knitting on the go. I’m kind of impressed by people who have lots of wip-s going at once. I’m always torn between finding it easier to keep just one lot of instructions/pattern in my head at one time, there’s always that having to re-learn it when you chop and change? Or maybe it’s just being less young than I was (!!) and forgetting more easily?? But it does, on the plus side, keep one’s interest going, especially in anything massively repetitive. Crystal Fragments is fun because you change colours so often, and that is entertaining in itself. And SW’s ‘weavin’ Stephen’ way of weaving in ends as you go is such a help. I’m really enjoying this modular technique, it’s so neat and satisfying. And you don’t need to buy the course to learn his techniques for short rows and weavin’ Stephen, they are, along with many other useful videos, all on YouTube.
