This week’s KnitBits patterns were inspired by the Icelandic tradition of the 13 Yule Lads, mischievous tricksters who wreak havoc around the holidays.
While knitting the first of two Kertasnikir Boot Toppers, I didn’t pay attention to the issue of yarn dominance. I trusted that blocking would work its usual magic and that the Geode colorwork would be more prominent. I’m always trying to improve my knitting diligence so I did some reading and decided to pay more attention on the second Boot Topper. You can TOTALLY tell, I’m completely sold on the importance of yarn dominance. ( In other words, if you knit with both hands, it matters which hand holds the CC!)
Has anyone ever learned from a knitting mishap? Can we blame the Yule Lads for all our knitting accidents?
