This week, I am having fun experimenting with some cool techniques from this book:
When it comes to pushing the boundaries of knitting, I think that Lynne Barr is at the top of the list. Her designs are so creative and modern, yet she also has a gift for clearly explaining how to achieve the various techniques that are used so that the average knitter can join in on her adventures. You can read more about the book from this post by Kate Davies.
Here is where my experiments in 3-D knitting has taken me so far:
This project uses a new technique called CAPS which stands for Continuously Applied Pieces. In the author's own words, this is an easy way to knit complex three-dimensional shapes with one continuous strand of yarn. Cool, right? Any guesses as to what this project might be? I wish that there had been a way to apply CAPS to my Aranami Shawl, which is done save for weaving in a gazillion ends.
