The Joy of a Good Tech Editor

I just got the draft for the Slightly Slanted Hat pattern back from the tech editor. She didn't find many problems, but one recurring typo in an abbreviation was crucial. You would think I should have caught it myself. I had looked at it repeatedly while doing three different test/sample knits. But it's true, the eye starts to see what the brain knows is supposed to be there. Anyway, thanks Joan!

I've been swatching again. An experiment with combining cables on the right.



The teal strip on the left starts with a pattern from a Japanese stitch dictionary. (this was the one I started with on the misguided Opal socks. I wanted to see how it would actually look in a solid.) As I worked I changed from yo's to lifted increases and varied the number and placement of purl rows. I didn't end up with anything too exciting.

You really *are* a "process knitter." I don't have the patience to noodle around with swatches....but then I guess that explains why you are the author of so many knit patterns and books :-)
