OK - it's not the most intricate or impressive of jumpers so why am I so chuffed about it? Well, simply put, it's my emancipation proclamation. I have finally taken control of my knitting and feel like I've entered a new phase of the craft.
I've always wanted to knit in-the-round seamless jumpers but frankly I could never quite figure out Elizabeth Zimmermann's formula. You need to understand that anything that has to do with ciphers, calculations, percentages, maths and spacial reckoning makes my eyes glaze over; I get so bewildered that I begin to wonder if Alzheimer's Disease has set-in. Then, luckily for me, Warren told me about the book "The Sweater Workshop" by Jacqueline Fee. A visit to Amazon.com and the book was mine. I couldn't believe how clearly she teaches the EZ method (with permission).
