Ysolda left the UK earlier this week for a tour through the States. This coming weekend she’ll be at Rhinebeck and will be signing books in the author’s area from 2pm to 4pm on both Saturday the 15 and Sunday the 16 of October.
The next stop on the tour is The Woolie Ewe in Plano, Texas on the 20 and 21 October. Ysolda will be signing books and teaching, for more information on the events visit the Woolie Ewe site here or join in the discussion in the Woolie Ewe group on Ravelry.
Starting with The Woolie Ewe this box sweaters will be accompanying Ysolda (and we’ve heard the box has already arrived there!)
It contains all the samples in Little Red in the City, plus a medium sized version of each sweater that wasn’t pictured in the book! These sweaters will be displayed and you’ll be able to try on and play with as many as you like.
For the final leg of this US tour Ysolda will be heading back to A Verb for Keeping Warm in Oakland, California for a talk and classes on the 12-13 November.
I know she’ll be happy to be reunited with Cleo – the little dog belonging to the owner of A Verb for Keeping Warm, as well as hanging out in the store. If you’re nearby please come and say hello!
An alternating cable cast on is a useful, stretchy cast on for ribbing that’s less fussy to work than a tubular cast on. It’s worked like a regular cable cast on, but instead of casting on each stitch knitwise stitches are alternately cast on knitwise and purlwise.
This tutorial includes both step by step photos and videos so you can use whichever suits you better.
