grafting

oh i have a wonderful seamless hybrid ready. all it need is to be seamed. why is it impossible for me wh0 actually knows quite a few tricks of the trade to be able to graft. is it the lack of daylight in scandinavia, the lack of readers or is it just me being not too clever.

  • Maybe you can get those natural light light bulbs! They really, really help me!

  • If it's a confusion about the actual technique that's messing things up, there's a great Knitty article with photos at http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer04/FEATtheresasum04.html. I look at it every time I set out to graft something.

  • I find that illustrations of grafting are impossible for me to follow, but the text-only directions at the back of Last Minute Knitted Gifts make it almost easy.

  • thanks for the help. it is all useful. looked at knitty and then in my danish books and then again in interweave knits and then it finally made sense. i am a first timer and it will get better in time, tension wise, but i am about to finish the sweater which is great.

  • I use the instructions in Knitter's Almanac - the drawing makes them easy to follow. Otherwise, I'm in Copenhagen too, so if you want to we can meet up and I'll show you :)
