Steeks, Sewing, and Birds!

Twist Collective...have you seen this? Well, it's a fantastic new online magazine of knitting patterns put out by Kate Gilbert (Miss Clapotis herself) and loads of other designers who believe in being paid fairly for their patterns. You go girls! I agree wholeheartedly.

The real reason for this post though is about something I just spotted on their blog. "Little Birds", a sweater by Ysolda Teague is a beautiful and complicated sweater involving steeks, but here's the kicker, you can use a zig zag on your (or our) sewing machine to help you with this otherwise arduous project! Check out the blog post for more information and then give us a call to set up an appointment in our sewing salon when you reach that point. There's no need for you to own a machine when you can rent ours! Pin It
