That's gorgeous stuff. Bling's not normally my thing either, but it works so well in that piece!


I just bought a cheap 40 year old knitting machine off eBay, perfect for churning out stocking stitch! Though, like most knitting machines it only does thinner yarns (max 5 ply), so it probably wouldn't cope with those two yarns together.

It is a great shade of blue.


Easy way to prevent curling at the edges of stocking stitch - start every row with one purl stitch.

This gives a neat finish with a handy 'channel' for sewing along, if needed. Also works well on loosely-knitted garter stitch, where the edges can otherwise look a bit bumpy.

(Thanks to my great-aunt Kit for this tip -- it's served me well over the years. Now, if only I could match her perfect tension!)
