The Charlotte Knitting Guild invited me to do a program on short rows. I sent all the members instructions for starting hats and other projects, but then I began scrumbling again and things changed. I stumbled over a picture of a swatch (scroll down) from the wonderful Nona of Nona Knits and Nona Swatches and changed the program entirely.
Loaded up with extra yarns and needles I went to Guild and invited them to not only learn the basic wrap and turn, but to do it with pizazz. Those who already knew how to do short rows had a bigger challenge—do something unexpected. I saw great success and no one left bug eyed or confused. Okay, maybe I should re-evaluate my standards, but if it ain’t fun, why are you here?
Here are some of the evening’s products:
Thanks to everyone who was there. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Just in case you want some more references to short rows, try these:
