In my blog on Saturday I made a casual remark about developing RSI. By Tuesday afternoon I was sitting in the emergency room of a large London hospital

Wondering around the Internet to give my hand a rest from this morning's knitting, I came across a really simple but effective aid for planning Fair Isle designs

I'm enjoying knitting so much that - along with my preference for natural worsted and chunky yarn - has got me thinking about spinning.

My current bedtime reading is Elizabeth Zimmerman's "Knitting Without Tears". I came across her method for joining a new skein of yarn while knitting, without making a knot.

I've just finished my first experience of raglan decreases on a sweater and I'm hooked.

Imagine you were going to have to create the sweater to end all sweaters. A real guys' sweater, in a really big (super) bulky/chunky yarn, meeting the following criteria:
- 100% natural fibre, preferably wool;
- Tension of 2 or 3 stitches to inch;
- Reasonably felt-free;
- Earthy or dyed colours;
From the above, it's obviously going to be a heavy garment, that's part of the concept.

I managed to call into "I Knit London" yarn store this afternoon, now that they moved to their new location next to Waterloo Station last Saturday
