One of my handiest knitting accessories won’t fit in my knitting bag — or any knitting bag for that matter.
It’s my copier.
I am one of those people who would never, ever write in a book. (although I get a secret thrill when I come across a page that has someone else’s writing on it) This includes pattern books. With the copier, and in my own home no less, I am free to scribble everywhere — and if it gets to full of my knitting hieroglyphics, I can always make another copy.
Another faboo thing is the enlargement feature.
Yeah, I said it. And I think you know what I mean.
Engorge enlarging charts!
Through the magic of enlargement, I was able to make my BWA Halycon somewhat portable! With these nice giant charts, I don’t have to concentrate quite so much when reading them. And because it was a copy of the original pattern, I took a scissors, cut out each individual chart and am now able to use a smaller magnet board.
In the past two days, I have knit 16 rows!
Today is overcast, muggy and dreary.
What does this have to do with anything?
This sweater does not photograph well with the flash on my camera – it seems to drain out all the detail of the cables (I think because the yarn has a heathered look to it). But I was forced into an indoor photo shoot. So here you have:
- large view with anniversary flowers
- focused shot with no visible detail
- fuzzy shot with some detail
- close up fuzzy shot with detail
