I never understood this war between continental and English method knitters. Surely the way we knit is completely irrelevant, shouldn’t we just be happy to have the opportunity to meet like-minded people who share our love for craft?
The same goes with the big no-nos about finishing your knitted garment. You must never machine sew your pieces together…..why not?! Did I ever have a garment with all pieces knitted and really wanted to wear it that day, but no time to hand sew it together? Did I use sewing machine? Yes and yes!! Will I do it again……Hell Yes!! In fact my ‘Cool’ sweater from Kim Hargreaves’s ‘Spirit’ book is sew together on a machine and it looks very nice, if I may say so myself.
So my lovelies hold your needles and yarn proudly and knit on…whichever way you choose!!
Well that’s the end of my rant….I do feel a lot better.
Thank you for reading.
