I can knit back backwards!

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.

  1. I hate you and your clematis (not really, I’m just so envious of your beautiful clematis). Can you tell I spent two years trying and failing to make a clematis grow?

    Nice sweater.

  2. Sweater looks Fab! The clemits also. I’ve been lusting after them forever…. Finally got a cutting and killed it shortly after my father left…. Anywho, both look great.
