Thanks to excellent instructions from the knit witch in a video. I’ve never been able to grasp it before. This is important because I’ve got two projects going which will go much faster with this technique. The Peacock’s Best Vest from SWTC involves 114 mitered diamonds, no less, and assorted other little triangles and stuff. They’re all in garter stitch, so I guess I’ll have to learn how to purl back backwards too. Or just turn my work over and over and over . . . . The other one is Lizard Ridge, from knitty. Lots of short rows every sixth row. I have no pictures yet, as the two projects are still mostly in my head.
I do have a picture of another knitty pattern. This took me literally months to complete. I really like the result, but I am so slow. It’s decimal, in classic elite premiere. My ravelry project page here.
Behind the model you see a variety of clematis with an unusual flower color. It’s ready for its closeup.
I love blue flowers.
