forget purling – knit backwards | 9:14 am | 26 July 2006

I just learned something really cool. I’d heard of knitting backwards and had even gotten a explanation with an entrlelac pattern, but the instructions weren’t clear, and nobody I asked could show me. The Knitty: Summer 2006 Knitty has a really great article about it. As a Contintental knitter, I hate purling, and I wish I had known how to to this ages ago. Next trick I’m looking for: two colors, two hands — and with Great Speed. I’d love to do more Norwegian knitting, but I’m going to be sticking to Arans until I figure out how to do that faster/better/smarter.
