About Me

 Of course, this is only about knitterly things.

I am aware that there a are quite a few contriversal issues in knitting that provoke much arguement. I’d love to say I don’t take sides, but frankly, I do. So, here are my opinions:

On Crocheting:
Vastly, vastly. inferior to knitting. No compitition. My reasons are good, and of course I’m not biased or anything *plays innocent*:

-It takes three times as much yarn

-The texture of crocheted fabric is unpleasent to me. (Of course it is, I’m a knitter.)

-Knitting is awesome. In it’s awesomeness, it’s juts so… awesome, that in comparison, crocheting is… um… less awesome (I’m losing ground here… -( )

I like crochet now! Wooo!
On Circular vs. Straight Needles

Circulars, but I personally prefir knitting really large quantities of stitches in the round on double-pointed needles. It makes me feel like I’m actually getting somewhere fast as I finish each needle.

Synthetic vs. Natural Fibers

I like some synthetics, (microfiber is cool, and ribbon yarn and the occasional furry or fuzzy yarn never hurt anyone) but I like natural fibers much more (who doesn’t?). Wool, alpaca, cotton, and linen are a few of my favorites. I’ve never knit with angora, but I’ve been anxious to try it for some time. Just that fact that it comes off a shaggy bunny is immensly appealing to me.

Continental vs. English Knitting

I’m a Continental gal myself. Though sometimes when I’m knitting, I throw the yarn instead of picking it for no reason in particular.

Yarn Weights

I like fingering, worsted, and chunky weights.

    Hi.

    Ann and Eugene told me about your visit to Philosopher’s Wool and said you had a blog site. Your Dad gave me the
    address, but he tells me that your most recent peices aren’t posted yet. Anyway the things you do have there are fun and I am delighted to see all that adventurous stuff going on.
    Good luck with the local craft store.

    Best wishes,
    Debbie New

    My favorite of all the pieces is the skullcap. It looks like it’s made from ribbon. What good luck to find Philosopher’s Wool. You are really making some good connections, Grace. Best of luck on your knitting entries.

    Grace!

    My beautiful, beautiful scarf of the exact perfect length, color and feel arrived! Thankyouthankyouthankyou. I went out of town for work w/out sending a note/reimbursement but I will. I wore it in (warmer) Arkansas with a non-turtleneck sweater earlier this week. As above, it as beautiful and perfect.
