365 Knitting Stitches a Year
I got 365 Knitting Stitches a Year--Perpetual Calendar. It is so cool. I'm really empressed with all the different stitches.

http://store.martingale-pub.com/cata...product&id=316

Does anyone else have this little book? What are you making? I am going to make an off-white afghan with the 4x4 swatches from each day.

I would recommend it if you enjoy trying new stitches.

I've had mine for many months...I love it, I've used it for cuffs in socks by using some of the lace, cable and texture patterns. I made a few scarves with it...it's really very useful and lots of fun to experiment with! it!!

I too have this book, it was mentioned in another thread. There is also a website out there that helps with making the calendar a bit more useful by telling you which dates have similar number of cast on stitches.

ah found it, that thread is here.

OH
Rorshach, I must have missed that thread. I did print off the list of the different multiples. I guess I wasn't the only one with the afghan idea. I started out doing an 8"x8" square but that just took too long since I really want to try a new stitch a day.

Some of the stitches I'm like but I'll go to my lys and have her show me the correct way.

Which ones have you all found more difficult?

Have a great weekend!
Carla

Hi, Feministmama (aka muse)!
I do knit and crochet, but these are all knit. Neat what you can do with different stitches, eh?
