Thank you for the comments on the camisole. More on that later.
I’d been neglecting the knitalong for far too long, so today I spruced it up a little. Everyone who has previously signed up should now be able to log in and write posts, but let me know if you have any problems with that. The faq section isn’t quite complete, because I got bored of logging into my ‘user’ account to take the screenshots and then back into the ‘admin’ account to update the page. It should give you a good idea of how to get started, and I’d love to know if there are other things you want it to cover. A resource list is probably a good idea, but if you have other suggestions let me know. I really want to see this work, partly for selfish reasons: I think it will be really useful to know how people find the experience of knitting my patterns, and I love to see them made.
I’ll finish the faq and other pages soon but right now I’m off to make dinner and knit a forties bullet bra, as you do. Oh and email my secret pals.
We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.
We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
