What is your all-time favourite yarn to knit with?
Colinette Point 5. This yarn is beautiful. I have only knit two things with this: a sweater for Gina P and a scarf for Emily's fourth grade teacher Abra. But I think it is the most beautiful yarn in the world. I would like to be buried in it.
Your favourite needles?
You all know the answer to this! Say it with me: Denise Interchangable Needles.
The worst thing you’ve ever knit?
I made a flesh colored/cotton speck bobble sweater for my mother in, oh, 1980. It looked like smallpox. And the neck was real small. I recently saw it in her closet - she can't bring herself to through it out but not even a librarian (she's a librarian) could wear it.
Your most favourite knit pattern?
Hands down: ChicKnits Ribbi Cardi. All the parts fit togehter perfectly.
Most valuable knitting technique?
It's gross but great: instead of tying your yarn togehter, or worse weaving in the ends, lick each end of the yarn. Really yick it up with spit. Then, splice the ends together and roll them on your thigh. Get some real good friction going. This will felt the ends together with no knot or seam at all. Unforutnately, this only works with wool. And I'd recommend it only in the privacy of your own home: I did it at knitting group and got a lecture about germs.
