To check gauge, cast on thirty to forty stitches using recommended needle size. Work in pattern stitch until piece measures
at least 4" (10 cm) from cast-on edge. Remove swatch from
a ruler over swatch and count number of stitches across and
number of rows down (including fractions of stitches and rows)
in 4" (10 cm). Repeat two or three times on different areas of
and rows than called for in instructions, use larger needles;
if you have fewer, use smaller needles. Repeat until gauge is
correct.

Now wake up and get clicking! Ten-ish years ago, Pam Allen used that
phrase to sign off the fi rst ever editors note for Knitscene. In the last ten years,
Knitscene has grown and evolved in so many ways, and its humbling and terrifying
and daunting to try to write an editors note for this, our tenth anniversary issue
more so than every other editors note Ive had to write. I talk more about the last
ten years of the magazine on pages 42 and 44.
Knitscene has always strived to provide fun knitting projects that can be
completed relatively quickly, trying to blend projects a new knitter could tackle
while also providing a little challenge to more experienced knitters. In this issue,
were running our fi rst brioche story, Brioche Building Blocks (pages 1622). Brioche
knitting is one of those things that generally appears more difficult than it isif you
can work in knit one, purl one rib and create yarnovers, you can knit brioche. Plus,
we have an excerpt from Mercedes Tarasovich-Clarks Brioche Chic to help you get
started. Already proficient with this technique? There are a couple of projects for
you, too.
We turn the pages back to the 1960s and 70s for our Style Icon story (pages4655);
six projects inspired by fashion icons such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Brigitte
Bardot, and even David Bowie! A Good Yarn (pages 3035) pairs delightful yarns
with beautiful projects. Finally, designer Mari Chiba delivers four fun and seamless
cardigans and sweaters in her design collection (pages 1215).
Thank you for knitting with us these last ten years, and heres to many more!
Happy knitting,

Thank you to the Poudre Landmarks Foundation for sharing the


amazing Fort Collins Water Works facility with us, and for the

Designer and tech editor


Kate Atherley has a passion
for helping knitters better
understand knitting patterns.
o

Ga
Weve invited Kate to share her
rrett Evans
knowledge in this new column to
aid fledgling and experienced knitters alike.
First up: choosing yarn.

D e b or a h H e lm ke
Once youve decided a particular pattern must be knit,
its time to look for yarn. Its easier to choose the pattern first,
then find the yarn. Im going to focus on accessory patterns, to
keep things simple.
Interweave patterns list the brand and name of yarn,
fiber content, yardage, and put-up (both the shapeball or
skeinand weight of the yarn, generally given in ounces
or grams). Any pattern should also tell you how many units
of yarn youll need and list the color name or number used
for the sample. This information helps you buy the right
yarn, in the right amount, for the project.
Generally, yarns are chosen to best suit the project, and
its simplest to use the recommended yarn. But there are
many factors that lead to yarn substitution, so lets figure
out the necessary information to do so.
Figure out how much youll need to buy: multiply the
number of units used for the pattern by the number of
yards per unit to get the total yards used. In this pattern
example, Id need 520 yards of yarn to knit the cowl.
Check the put-up mentioned earlier, as some brands
have different sizes. Some sock yarns come in both 50and 100-gram balls. If the pattern calls for one ball, I need
to make sure I get the correct weight.
Take into consideration that different fibers weigh different amounts. Cotton is heavier than wool, so a
100-gram skein of worsted-weight wool will have more
yards than a 100-gram skein of worsted-weight cotton. Also consider the type of fiberif its an animal
fiber, stay with animal-fiber-based yarns; if its cotton
or another plant fiber, look to that family of yarns. Is the
texture fuzzy or smooth? If a solid or semisolid color is

used to highlight a texture pattern, stick with that. If you


cant find that exact yarn in your LYS, look it up online to
get a sense of what it looks like.
Once youve chosen a yarn, take that total-yardsused number and divide it by the number of yards in
the chosen yarn. In our example, if a new yarn has
110yards to a unit, Id need 4.73 units of yarnso Id
purchase five units of my substituted yarn.

The Only Knitting


History You Need
An Art History Majors Take on
Sandy Blacks Knitting: Fashion, Industry, Craft
Louisa Demmitt

bit.ly/KFICbook

When I started trying to write a review of this book, I spent


three hours with an open document that just said This book
is Not because I couldnt think of what to say, but because
there is too much to try to distill down to one review!
Knitting: Fashion, Industry, Craft
(V&A Publishing, 2012) by Sandy
Black is an extensively comprehensive and incredibly beautiful look at
the history and evolution of knitting.
Filled with rich photos, many from the
esteemed Victoria and Albert Museum
in London, and detailed stories, there
is information about the crafts origins
as well as how different cultures have
created unique methods and fabrics,
all starting with similar fundamentals.
You will learn about the development
of knitting from domestic handcraft
to one of the most sophisticated
computer-controlled textile production
processes used in fashion, and how
the transition of knitting from a folk

10

art to the inclusion of knit fabrics in


mainstream fashion happened. From
homespun to runway ready, knitting
has taken off over the years!
One of my favorite sections talks
about the history of knit accessories,
like gloves and mittens. There is a
really fantastic example of the
Scandinavian technique known as
tvndsstickning in Swedish, or two
end knitting (also called twined knitting). This involves using two strands
of the same color yarn, knitting one
stitch with one strand, the next stitch
with the other strand, and then back
to the fi rst. It creates a really thick,
warm fabric, perfect for keeping out
cold winter wind. The mittens shown

are very dense, but the knitting is so


delicate, the patterning is so subtle. I
have used this technique before, but
did not know about its origins.
Paintings, photographs, manuscripts, and other historical documents
and references are included, creating
a fleshed out history that propels a
reader through the book. As an art
history major with a special place in my
heart for folk art, this book is a perfect
creation. It combines the beauty of a
coffee table book with the information
of a text book into one tome for knitters
everywhere to treasure.
Louisa Demmitt is assistant editor of
Knitscene and is more than slightly
obsessed with folk art.

6/5/15 9:57 AM

A typical interaction with Mari


Chiba begins with I have a
vision! or I have a crazy
idea!and quite often,
these wacky ideas (or some
version of them) become
reality. I first met Mari at
the Summer 2012 TNNA
Trade Show in Columbus,
Ohio, when she was working
in the Lotus Yarns booth. It
wasnt long after that chance
encounter that she became
my colleague at Stitchcraft
Marketing.
Over the years, Ive gotten to know
Mari better, despite the fact that we
live in different parts of the country;
an integral part of our day involves
chatting over Skype to discuss issues
related to work, designing, and yarn
and sometimes, completely random
things that have nothing to do with
the fi ber-arts industry!
Unsurprisingly, Maris crazy ideas
spill over into the world of designing.
For proof of that, look no further than
her Two Hands series, which puts
an interesting spin on traditional
colorwork motifs by splitting an image
in half between two wearable pieces
(mittens or gloves). When asked about
her approach, Mari admits that she
designs things she likes to knit and
wear: I go for clean lines, and I like
pretty simple stitches. The result is
a body of work that features designs
that are eye-catching, modern, and
easy to wear.
Like so many fi ber folks I know,
Mari has an interesting backstory:
her mother tried to teach her to knit
when she was eight or nine years
old, but it didnt grab hold until many
years later when she was serving in
the Peace Corps in Armenia. Living
in a small village, she needed something to entertain her during the long,
cold winters, and re-learning how to

Allotrope Pullover
Knit in the round to the underarms, this
pullover features an all-over diamond motif
in the body. To keep the knitting seamless,
Mari picked up stitches to form the sleeve
cap before knitting the sleeves in the round
down to the cuff. Yarn Anzula Haiku

Solitude Jacket
This seamless cardigan
is worked in one piece to
the underarms, before the
sleeves are knit separately
and then joined to the body
to work the yoke. A deep ribbing pattern at the shoulders
and bottom hem offset a
simple garter-stitch cowl
shaped with short-rows.
Yarn Solitude Wool Romney
Semi-Worsted Spun
Pattern page 60

knit suddenly became an appealing


option! This second attempt was
self-directed for the most part; while
a few volunteers had helpful tips to
share along the way, Mari mostly knit
and re-knit the same things again
and again to experiment with how
adding a stitch here or decreasing one
there would change the shape of the
finished fabric.
It wasnt too much of a leap to
begin designing: Mari admits that
she has never been a person to follow
directions, and after a few frustrating
attempts at following patterns with
lackluster results, she began to make
up her own designs for hats, cowls,
and shawls, mostly by trial and error.
By this point, she had moved to China
to teach English, which is where she
happened to meet the owner of Lotus
Yarns. This serendipitous encounter
proved to be mutually beneficial.
Mari started writing patterns for the
company in exchange for free yarn,
opening a veritable Pandoras box
(albeit, one filled with yarn).
When Maris pattern appeared on
the cover of the Unofficial Harry Potter
Knits (Ginnys Cardigan), the compulsion to design only grew stronger. I
dream of sweaters and they wont stop
bugging me until they come into life
in yarn! she jokes, but only a little
like most jokes, there is a grain of
truth behind the punchline, and Mari
has an incredible drive coupled with a
truly artistic approach. I get an idea,
and I develop it into a design, but once
its out there, its up to the world to
interpret, she says.
While Ravelry has made it possible
for virtually anyone to share a design
with the world, it takes quite a bit of
determination and creativity to make
working in the fiber-arts industry a
job that can reliably pay the bills. Mari
does a little bit of everything during a
typical work week: in addition to selfpublishing her own work and submitting to well-known publications such
as Knitscene and Interweave Knits,
she teaches part-time at her local yarn

shop and is also an account manager


for Stitchcraft Marketing, a full-service
agency providing marketing strategy,
graphic design, and a host of other
services tailored especially for the craft
industry. All of my jobs are fun, though
sometimes stressful, and I feel pretty
lucky that I was able to create my own
niche, she says. Like so many of my
generation, I was underemployed for
a long time, working constantly to try
to make ends meet. Thankfully, things
have improved over the last yearbut
as much as I love designing, I just cant
imagine it would ever be a full-time
thing for me.
Mari and I often joke that we both
need clones to accomplish everything
on our to-do lists, not to mention
everything we wish we could get done
on any given day. However, with the
pace at which Maris design career has
started to take off, I predict that the
grain of truth behind our shared joke
might become less of a punchline in the
not-so-distant future!

Brioche

Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark

Mercedes has done incredible work designing with brioche stitch over the last few years.
Her book Brioche Chic included the most perfect and precise explanation of what you need
to know to knit brioche. So we borrowed a bit of information to help you master this stitch.
For more information and beautiful projects, grab a copy of Brioche Chic!

To begin to work in brioche,


and fully fall in love with the
possibilities of the stitch, youll first
need to learn a few basics. Once
you understand the basic stitch
structure, you can then learn how
to choose yarns and needles that
help you fine-tune your brioche
projects, work cast-on and bindoff methods that pair well with
brioche, and shape brioche with
increases and decreases.

knit (or purled) stitches. Each row or round
is worked in two passes, which equal one
completed row or round. As alternate stitches
are worked, theyre not merely slipped but
slipped while a companion yarnover is simultaneously worked. This stitch, the sl1yo, is what
creates brioche knittings enmeshed structure. Once you have sl1yo stitches in place,
these stitch/yarnover pairings are either knit
or purled in the brioche method, as a brk
(brioche knit) or brp (brioche purl).

SL1YO (SLIP ONE, YARNOVER)

This is a stitch combination that creates a


stitch/yarnover pairing, which counts as a single stitch. Following a knit or brk (brioche knit)
stitch, bring yarn to front between needle tips,
slip next stitch purlwise and simultaneously
bring yarn over needle to back of work (fig. 1).
Following a purl or brp (brioche purl) stitch,
with yarn in front, slip next stitch purlwise and
simultaneously bring yarn over needle to back
of work.

BRK (BRIOCHE KNIT)

This is the brioche version of a basic knit


stitch, and it is as easily worked as a k2tog.
With yarn at the back of work (fig. 2), insert
right needle tip into both a stitch and its companion yarnover knitwise. Work together as
one knit stitch (fig. 3).

BRP (BRIOCHE PURL)

This is the brioche version of a basic purl


stitch, and it is as easily worked as a p2tog.
With yarn at the front of work (fig. 4), insert
right needle tip into both a stitch and its companion yarnover purlwise. Work together as
one purl stitch (fig. 5).
These three basic stitches make up the majority of all brioche stitch structures. From this
point, as in traditional knitting, the options
to expand upon the basics are diverse and
limited only by your imagination!

Choosing Yarns
andNeedles
In spite of brioche knittings unusual structure,
most yarns are open as options. Depending
on your desired result, there are some things
to take into consideration when choosing yarn
and needles for your brioche projects.

GAUGE

Brioche knitting creates a naturally loose,


fluffy stitch. When worked on needles in the
size suggested on any given yarns label, the
resulting stitches are often much too loose,
especially for any garment requiring structure
to fit well. Irecommend knitting brioche on
needles two or three sizes smaller than you
normally might for a yarns suggested gauge.
For example, if Iwere using a worsted-weight
wool that had a recommended needle size of
U.S. 8 (5 mm) on the label, I would use a
U.S. 5 or U.S. 6 needle (3.75or 4 mm) to knit
that yarn in brioche.
For sweaters and other garments that rely
on a proper fit, the appropriate needle and
yarn choice can make or break your garment.
Brioche knit at too loose of a gauge may not
hold its shape and can grow in size over time.
This may not be a concern with smaller accessory patterns that dont rely on fit, but it could
spell disaster for a larger sweater project.
Swatch generously when checking your gauge
against the pattern to be sure of a good match
for your project.

The samples shown are all knit with a


worsted-weight yarn on U.S. sizes 3 (top),
6 (middle), and 9 (bottom), respectively
(3.25, 4, and 13 mm). While the brioche
structure remains obvious on all of the
swatches, the middle swatch, knit on
U.S. 6 needles (4 mm), would be the best
choice for any garment needing to hold
its shape and gauge.

>>>>>>>>>> book excerpt

Brioche, especially brioche rib, is a thicker


fabric than traditional stockinette stitch. With
thicker fabrics, a little extra ease is usually
more flattering than a skin-tight fit. Because
of this, getting proper gauge and creating a
fabric that holds its shape is part of the larger
picture to create a successful, love-to-wear-it
project.

YARN

For accessories such as cowls and scarves,


gauge is not as crucial as for fitted garments or
accessories such as hats or mittens. For these
more relaxed accessory projects, you can
experiment a bit with gauge to create looser,
waffle-weave-type textures and draped fabrics. Try a simple brioche rib in a potentially
crisp yarn, such as linen or cotton, on larger
needles, and its whole personality can change.

When substituting yarns, always try a generous swatch in the pattern stitch to see if your
substitute yarn will behave in a similar way
to the suggested yarn. This is important not
only in brioche but most garment projects. A
project that takes advantage of a bouncy wool
yarn wont look the same when knit in a sleek,
drapey silk.

When measuring gauge in brioche stitch,


disregard the two-pass row or round construction of the stitch pattern. Simply look
at the visible stitches and rows. Brioche can
occasionally bias, developing a slant to the left
or right, depending on your yarn choice and
knitting style. So knitting a generous swatch
and blocking it before measuring will help to
get the most accurate gauge measurement
possible before beginning your project. Note
that the gauges given in the project instructions are after blocking.

With no hesitation, I will say that my preferred


yarn for brioche knitting would be a wool or
wool blend. Its pretty hard to beat the springiness, softness, and texture of a natural wool
yarn. That being said, I have worked brioche
successfully with bamboo, acrylic, alpaca, cotton, linen blends, and many other fibers.

When working two-color brioche, smooth


yarns in high contrast colors are usually the
best option to show off your brioche stitches.
More subtle color effects can be achieved
by pairing two similar shades. You can also
experiment with combining yarns of different
gauges or textures to create unusual effects.
Brioche knitting can use up to twice the
yardage as regular knit fabric due to its thick
texture. When planning your own projects or
making modifications, such as adding length
for sleeves and bodies, err on the side of
having too much yardage on hand. Gauge can
also affect your total yardage used, so tighter
knitters may want to grab an extra skein or
two when planning projects.

Knitting Brioche
Now that you know how to begin and end, we
can get to the fun part: kniing brioche. Try it
out on a swatch or the Caen Cowl paern to
begin kniing flat briocherib.
Remember, one row of brioche rib is worked
in two passes, so where paerns indicate
Rowa and Row b, those two working rows
result in one completed row of brioche knit.
See page 24 for instructions on working the
sl1yo, brk, and brp stitches.

Working circular brioche rib is similar to flat


knit brioche rib, but two working rounds, with
right side of the work always facing, make up
one complete round, rather than pairing rightand wrong-side working rows while working
flat. While working brioche in the round, the
brioche purl stitch, or brp, is introduced into
the work, to create the purl columns.
To keep track of the beginning of each round,
use a locking stitch marker or coilless safety
pin to mark the first stitch of the round, moving it up every few rounds as you knit (fig. 1).

Prewitt Socks

Kates new book, Custom Socks, is so full of amazing


patterns and sock-fitting information that this pattern
didnt fit! Were sharing it as an exclusive pattern,
only for Knitscene readers.

Finished Size
Ankle circumference: 7 (7, 8, 8)" (18
[19, 21, 22] cm).
Foot circumference: 7 (7, 8, 8)" (18 [19,
20.5, 21] cm).
Leg length: Adjustable to fit.
Foot length: Adjustable to fit; finished
length should be about " (1.3 cm) shorter
than actual foot length. Sock shown
measures 7" (18 cm) foot circumference.
Yarn CYCA #1, Super Fine
Shownhere: Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock
(80% superwash wool, 20% nylon; 430 yd
[393 m]/100 g): Cedar (MC) and Natural (CC),
1 skein each.
Needles Size U.S. 1.5 (2.5 mm): set of 4
double-pointed (dpn), two circular (cir) or one
long cir, as you prefer.
Notions Marker (m); tapestry needle.
Gauge 38 sts and 60 rnds = 4" (10 cm) in
slipped st patt worked in rnds; 32 sts and 49
rnds = 4" (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds.

The pattern begins with 2 rounds of the main color in which the last
stitch of every 6-stitch repeat is slipped. The following 2 rounds are worked
in the contrasting color with the third stitch of each repeat slipped. The
result is a faux-plaid effect that includes single-stitch columns of each color
against 2-row stripes. The elongated slipped stitches add an interesting bit
of texture.
The number of cast-on stitches is based on the stockinette gauge, but
adjusted to a multiple of 3 to accommodate the k2, p1 ribbing in the cuff.
Increases are worked at the end of the cuff to accommodate the slightly
tighter gauge of the slipped-stitch pattern. Because the ratio of slipped
stitches in this pattern is relative smalljust 1 in 6I use the standard
ease adjustment number of 0.9. To accommodate the different gauges in the
instep and sole, the two are worked on different numbers of stitches.

Note

This pattern works for any sock yarn that


specifies a gauge of 30 to 32 stitches in 4"
(10 cm).
The following instructions are based on
the Basic Patterns worked at a gauge of 8

TEN YEARS

Amy Palmer

Photo by Carol Kaplan

OF

My knitting career is just a bit younger than KnitsceneI started knitting almost nine years
ago, in the fall of 2006. My friend Betsy had taken up the needles, and I asked her to teach
me. My grandmother had tried to teach me nearly twenty years earlier, but as with many
young knitters, the skills didnt quite stick then. But when Betsy helped me pick out an inexpensive pair of needles and yarn, then sat down with me to go over the now all-too familiar
motions of knitting, something inside clicked, and I became a knitting addict.
As a twenty-something woman just diving into this
new world of crafting, I spent a lot of time and money
gathering up various knitting resources, and Knitscene
was one of them. Like many of our readers, I was drawn
to the combination of stylish, approachable projects,
never dreaming that one day I would inherit the incredible work that former editor Lisa Shroyer had built over
most of the magazines life.
Just as any publication evolves over its lifetime,
Knitscene has seen changes in the last ten years.
Weve had only a handful of editors, all of whom left
their own stamps on the pages and the projects of
the magazine. We keep experimenting with features,
departments, and kinds of articles, trying to find the
perfect balance. As the publishing world evolves, we
evolve with it, trying to bridge the ever-widening gap
between digital media and traditional print. Theres no
telling what the next ten years hold, but we hope youll
be with us for the ride, growing, experimenting, and
evolving together.

This pattern requires the use of a circular needle


or double-pointed needles because each row
is worked two times by sliding thestitches
to the other end of the needle.
When countingstitches, each slippedstitch
with its companion yarnover count as
onestitch. When counting rows, Rows 1a
and 1b count as one wrong side row, and
Rows 2a and 2b count as one right side row.
For circle placement, all references tostitch
counts are counted from the right, as viewed
from the right side, even though the circlestarts on the wrong side. The terms right
and wrong sides are used for clarity; once

Step 1: Bring the active needle forward and under


the cable, over ball strand, catching the ball strand,
then back under the cable to its original position
(1 stitch cast on; stitch is anchored under the cable;
Fig. 2).
Step 2: Bring the active needle behind and under
ball strand (Fig. 3), (1 stitch cast on; stitch
resembles a yarnover and is not anchored under
the cable; Fig. 4).
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 until you have cast on the
required number of stitches. Each time you cast on
two stitches onto the active needle with these
steps, two matching stitches will have been cast
on to the cable beneath the active needle. Count
only the stitches on the active needle; do not count
the stitches on the cable beneath, nor the slipknot.
When you have finished, the stitches will have
filled up the circle created by looping the needle
around, and both needle tips will meet at the
center of the cable where the slipknot was placed
(Fig. 5).

Holding both needle tips between a thumb and


middle finger, adjust the cable so that you have
two circles of the same size. Distribute the stitches
evenly around the doubled cable so that the round
may be worked comfortably. Make sure that the
doubled cable runs parallel for the entire
circumference, except for one point at the
beginning where the active needle must cross the
lower cable. Place a marker on the right needle.
For each round given in pattern, work two
rings. First ring: Work to marker (marker is
between needles, on the cable below the needle
tips). Second ring: Work to marker (marker is on
the left needle, and can be slipped to the right
needle). The first time the first ring is worked, the
stitches will be mounted in an alternating fashion
with the front leg of the loop either behind or in
front of the cable, and each stitch forms a triangle
with the cable upon which it is mounted. Knit into
the center of each triangle as you work the stitches.
The first time the second ring is begun, the stitches
will appear as though they have been purled; knit
into these as well. As work progresses, the two
loops of the cable will grow further apart.

Make a slipknot, leaving a 6" tail, and place it on the


circular needle, at the center of the cable. Hold
slipknot and center of cable between the thumb
and first two fingers of your right hand, leaving
needle tips hanging down. Take left needle tip in
your left hand and bring it around counter-clockwise to slipknot (making a circle) (Fig. 1). Hold left
needle tip (hereafter referred to as active needle)
along with slipknot and cable, with needle tip in
front. Leave right needle tip hanging down and out
of work. With your left hand, hold the cable several
inches to the left of the slipknot and active needle,
between your thumb and middle finger, and hold
the ball strand comfortably between your palm
and fingers. Sling the yarn over your left index
finger, up and away from the cable. As you cast on,
you will work into the strand that runs from the
slipknot to the top of your index finger.

Photo by Toni Carr

>>>>>>>>>> blogspotting

Blogger and lover of all things


geeky, Joan of Darkderby name
and publishing pseudonym of
Toni Carrhas been on our
blogroll for a long time. Her third
book, Geek Knits, has just been
released by St. Martins Griffin
Press. Geek Knits is a celebration
of iconic geek culture, featuring incredible projects modeled
by faces familiar to the geeks
among us. Read more from Joan
at www.joanofdark.com.

Q How long have you been


blogging?
A I think I started with a blog called

Tonigirl in 2004. It was right about the


time I started knitting. Its too bad that
blog has disappeared into cyberspace,
because there was a pretty awesome
new knitter post where I was trying to
figure out why my acrylic project didnt
felt. (Whoops!)

Q What inspired you to start a


blog?
A Stitch n Bitch Nation by Debbie

Stoller (Workman Publishing Group,


2004). That book made me want to
connect with other knitters, since the
only knitters I knew were my mom and
grandmaat least until I dragged my
friends over and taught them to knit!

Q What types of projects do you


like to knit and blog?
A I post every project that I can

Photos by Kyle Cassidy

on my blog! Its frustrating when Im


working on a book because I cant share
any projects. All my posts end up being
about my dogs and aerial silks. Ill knit
anything: small projects I can keep in
my bag when Im running around, larger
projects on the needles in my living
room, and one lace or colorwork pattern
in my office, where I can concentrate.

96

Q Which post has been your


favorite to write so far?
A I would have to say the post where

I opened up about how anxious I get


in public about speaking. I was really
unsure about whether I wanted to post
something that personal, but I also
wanted people to know that, despite
outward appearances, Im actually painfully shy. It opened up a great conversation on my blog and social media, and I
received many emails from people who
were too shy to post anything in public,
but wanted to share their stories about
public anxiety.

Q Name one blog you love to


read and share why you love it.
A I think this is the single hardest

question you could have asked me! I


lurk on so many blogs, including John
Scalzis Whatever, Dances With Wool,
Trillian Stars, Georgia Bean (the fi rst
knitting blog I ever read!), not to mention
the times I just end up disappearing
down the Internet rabbit hole. I love seeing well-done blogs and wondering how
the authors have the time!
