Sometimes your knitting can just get a little … boring.

For the technique segment at the end, I show how to determine the ply structure of a yarn and discuss why you want to pay attention to it.

  1. Hi Elizabeth,

    Ok, here is your random comment for the day:

    I was thinking about IU today and started googling IU. I went to the HPS page and was looking at my old HPS buddies: Chris, Charles, Ruth, and of course you. So I googled you and saw a knitting pod cast. It was good too see you. You look very happy. You have the same sense of humor I remember. Just thought I’d say a quick “hi” to you and Adam.

    Sincerely,

    Larry

    • Hi, Larry—Good to hear from you! I left academia a few years ago to begin a freelance career as a knitting designer, editor, and teacher. It’s been great. Looks like you’ve found something fulfilling to do as well. All the best to you.
