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
GORGEOUS —-can’t wait to see the finished product. So far, it is my favorite.
Such talent — Grammy is up there smiling.
Good for you! It’ll be done in no time!
Enlarged close-ups with fuzzy details? Hoohoooooo.
I don’t have a copier, per se, but I do have a scanner with photocopy feature and I love, love, love it! And, if you can imagine, I love it even more when it’s working with its partner, the color laser printer.
Copies are the only way to go…engorged copies!
We are all getting back to our woolly sweaters…must be fall!
