Why is a raven like a writing desk?

By Megan Goodacre

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Or maybe, why is a blog like a house plant? So easy to neglect. Especially when you're down a rabbit hole of knitting swatches and writing patterns.

Designing knitting patterns really messes with the space-time continuum; thinking ahead to 2012, thinking back to vintage knits, trying to keep the yarn stash in an earthly dimension...

But that's enough rambling. Here's a sneak peek at the next Tricksy Knitter pattern, the England Avenue cardigan. Long jacket-style cardi, with wide seed stitch borders, set in sleeves, pockets, and slip stitch brocade panels on the front and back.

I love stitches that are dramatic, but easy to work. (That's either elegance or laziness...). As soon as it stops snowing, I'll get some proper photos.
