  • I’m imagining this in fingering weight. Maybe a fade or random stripey thing. Or perhaps a use for my yarn bombs?

  • So very pretty! And so many options! I need more coffee.

  • Ann – Please share the fried pies location. I could use an adventure that ends with fried pie.

    • I was going to say the same thing! Love fried pies.

      • Hi Jennie and Virginia! Head south on I-65, drive about an hour, take a right to Lynnville, where you will find an adorable village, Lynnville, home of the Lynnville Fried Pie Co. https://www.facebook.com/friedpieguy/

        • Thanks Ann! I’ll be heading there soon.

  • Thanks for all the helpful articles about Field Guide #15. I’m so excited to knit some of the patterns in this booklet I am a little confused though about the ssp in the field guide it explains how to do an ssp but the video Jen Arnall-Culliford made demonstrates a different way and your test knitter, Kathy also recommends a different method. Does it matter which way it’s executed?

    • I was a test knitter also. I knitted the blue Aperture Stole pictured at the beginning of this post. I just watched the two videos that you mentioned and I did my SSP the same way that Jen Arnall-Culliford demonstrated. I followed the SSP instructions from FG#15 (without watching a video). Slip 1 knitwise, slip 1 knitwise, pass back to the left needle and then purl 2 together THROUGH THE BACK LOOPS.
      It’s a bit tricky to do this but it gets easier as you go along. (The other video shows the last part of the SSP as a regular purl 2 together – which is much easier.)
      Ultimately, it probably doesn’t matter as long as you are consistent with your SSPs. It won’t show much in lace weight yarn and won’t show in a fuzzy yarn like Cumulus. If you follow the pattern as written, all of the SSPs are in Cumulus. Hope this helps.

  • Cedar Glade. These are the words that have me going today. I need to plant this. I need to go there.

  • Seeing things closer to home may be one of the best things about this year. We took a trip to west Texas this summer and had a great week just seeing places we hadn’t been before but will definitely go back to! We also had a lot of great Mexican food!
