About Me

I started knitting a few years ago, simply because I didn’t want to pay the outrageous price for an e-reader cover. I thought to myself, ‘I could make that,’ and I haven’t stopped since. I’m always looking to challenge myself, try new techniques, and I always have at least two projects on the go.  Like many others, I find knitting to be extremely calming, a therapeutic artform.

I’m Canadian, a history geek, museum professional, and a Whovian.

  1. I just found your post about knitting a basket weave Sontag. I have started knitting a Sontag using that pattern but cannot make the increases look right. Yours look lovely on the post. Would you be willing to share how you increased along the outside edges. Many thanks and happy knitting!

    1. Hi Lynda! Thanks for reading.

      For my Sontag, on rows when I’m increasing into a knit stitch, I would simply knit front and back into the first stitch. For rows when I increased into a purl stitch, I would purl 1, then Make one by picking up the bar between stitches and purl into the picked up bar.

      I hope this helps! Have fun making your Sontag and happy knitting to you too!

      1. Thank you for the help! I think the edges are looking much better. I am using bulky yarn – #5 – so am adjusting the pattern accordingly. That may have been part of the trouble the way I was doing it before. So far so good. Have a great day! Lynda
