OK, here’s the ONE Xmas present I knitted this year – but it is darned cute. It’s a double-knitted teddy bear from the book “Knitter’s Stash”. The book’s been around a while, but I don't actually own it (the library does, though!) so this is only the second thing I’ve knit out of it.
Q. When is a picture NOT worth a thousand words?
A. When it is a BFL (Big Fat Lie).
One of my biggest knitting peeves is photography in knitting publications that is a deliberate misrepresentation of the article in question. (A close second is "artsy" photography, at the expense of seeing what the garment actually looks like.)
