actual craft content plus some knitting
qotd, secrets


I really like Cat Bordhi. She's just such a frickin mathematical genius and the view that gives her on, say, socks, just bends my mind. In a good way.

I would love to sit down and talk with Barbara Walker. She is from Philly too.. so I would love to talk to her about growing up here.

Maggie Righetti. As far as I know she's still alive.
I learned basic knitting from my Mom but Righetti's books taught me the rest. Also I'd like to meet someone who entitled a chapter "buttonholes are bastards". OK, entering sacreligious territory here: they make more sense to me than EZ's books. Righetti actually explained why certain things were necessary or suggested, and I am still a little bitter about that stupid EZ February baby sweater: I STILL don't understand why I had to cast on huge amounts of stitches which created big convex pouches under the armpits.

Second Maggie Righetti. I do love to read EZ's work, but it's pretty easy to find out an awful lot about her. Maggie, on the other hand, I don't know much about except that almost anything I want to know I can look up in her book. Which reminds me I have to get that back from my sister.

Pam Allen. From knit designer to Interweave Editor to yarn company owner she has seen it all in the knitting industry.

Sadly, Maggie Righetti is no longer knitting on this mortal plane. Pam's a good one. Do you know where Barbara Walker lives now, perchance?

I've read the books written by Clara Parkes, she seems to know a lot about yarn and also knitting:
