MIT Science Reporter—"Computer for Apollo" (1965)

Yesterday I learned the Apollo missions' ROM (read only memory) was KNITTED. Well, not really, more like woven. But I want to live in a world in which it was knitted. This old film explains it in 30 minutes but the good views of the "knitted" memory start at 20 minutes in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=ndvmFlg1WmE

Winter Sea Shawl by Sandy Terp: This is a traditional Faroese shawl I designed after seeing the ocean during a storm and thinking of those that would brave it in spite of the danger. “The winter sea is experienced with a mixture of fear and awe. Men enter, not to fight her, but to seduce her. It takes the audacity of a fool. Or a lover.” I choose patterns that expressed these emotions in the center panel. It takes 1200 yards of lace weight or fingering weight yarn. $20 Pattern Book http://moonriselaceknitting.com/winter-sea

Violets For Your Furs

NEW PATTERN - Violets For Your Furs: This is a new shaping with some sure-to-be-new stitches. The shaping is one I call "semi-circle-plus". It is about 2/3rds of a circle. Back and forth knitting, no need to fold it to wear, it shows off the pattern wonderfully. The pattern is adapted from a Japanese circular pattern. A couple of the stitches were new to me. Spiral Bound Pattern Book - $15 in March.

The title is from a song by Thomas Adair and Matt Dennis, sung by Frank Sinatra:

I bought you violets for your furs
And there was blue in the wintery sky
Then you pinned my violets to your furs
And gave a lift to the crowds passing by
You smiled at me so sweetly
Since then one thought occurs
That we fell in love completely
The day I bought you violets for your furs

$17 | Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible, 260 Exquisite Patterns by Hitomi Shida translated and with an introduction by Gayle Roehm.

This is by far the best book to come along in a long time. It contains stitch patterns that originally came from Japan, translated into Chinese. The original was hard to get and expensive. I got a copy and LOVE it.

This version is an English translation (done by Gayle Roehm), full of beautifully photographed examples of the stiches and also very affordable. When Meg Swansen told me about this new edition, I told her that I wanted every student of mine to own it! Order yours today!

Dreams At Dawn: Sandy Terp's newest original design; an interpretation of a classic Niebling.

$20 Spiral Bound Pattern

First dreams of the night are based on reality—often, sadly, on the evening news.

Midnight dreams are a mixture of distorted reality and fantasy with fearful story lines. This is the time of nightmares.

But dreams before dawn are pure fantasy. No limits here. A moment of pleasure or a joyful memory is played out in vivid, strange imagery, impossible to remember completely or recount.

Lucky is the dreamer who can turn off the alarm and go back to sleep in the afterglow.

Dreams at Dawn is a Niebling / Terp Collaboration. It is a 50” round shawl done in lace weight yarn, Malabrigo Lace is recommended.

Lock Ridge Scarf pattern by Sandy Terp

Lock Ridge Scarf, my latest original design, is available on Ravelry for immediate download for just $1! This beautiful scarf can be masculine or feminine and uses an unique combination of Japanese stitches, lace and cables. A delightful small lace knitting project that will teach you some new things!

This scarf uses many patterns from the Japanese, translated to Chinese books, recently popular. I did include some old favorites and added lace whenever I could. The theme is inspired by the iron ore furnace ruins at Lock Ridge Park. The bold lines of the patterns make me think of stone. The scarf m...

Here’s a treat for knitters and knitting fans! We have for you a list of prominent personalities who know a thing or two (for some, a lot!) about using knitting needles. Honestly, we never knew that these people who we look up to could knit until we saw an article on Mental Floss. Did you know? …

ChiaoGoo MiniSet Interchangeable Needles: $85 with free shipping within the US. Interchangeable circular needles in small needle sizes; 5 sets of 5” lace tips in the following sizes, OOO, OO, O, 1, and 1.5.

There are three cables that are very thin and flexible. They make size 24”, 32”, and 40”. They also can be joined to make larger lengths. There is a box of tools, even a gauge. A cute mesh bag holds everything.

I was a bit skeptical that the joins could be made perfectly in so small a tip—but they are flawless. And they have the wonderful points we have come to expect from Chiaogoo. Limited supply.

Now carrying Malabrigo Silkpaca from Uruguay! The Silkpaca is fast becoming my favorite yarn. I have two projects in the works and it seems that every color I look at makes me think of a shawl I want to design for it. It is 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk and feels so good in the hand. It is a lace weight with 420 yards in a skein of 50 grams. It has enough bloom that you can use a size 3 needle or larger. It is equally at home with a 1 or 2. And OH the colors! It is soft tonal in shades that range from conventional to colors you might not ever think to combine.

12/18/2013

"Every Woman Has A Secret Garden" This is my latest original design! The theme is based on the Bruce Springsteen song. For me, it tells of the impossibility of any one really knowing all that is in a woman's heart. The construction is 37 hexagons with 25 of them containing garter st sections that form a path around and through garden motifs in the remaining sections and hexagons. It was a deeply personal project for me, and I am sure it will be for you. I used a heavy lace-weight yarn (about 2000 yards) but the size of the hexagons can easily be changed to accommodate a different weight yarn. All the patterns are charted. The join is surprisingly easy and quick, the edge is also quickly done. Large Pattern Booklet - $20
