What We’re Learning from Our Knitting
Nothing could be easier than Kirsten Hipsky’s #576 Knit Lace Jar Cover http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knit-lace-jar-covers so of course Margaret had to complicate it by learning a new technique: this time a garter stitch kitchener which turned out less complicated than the standard stockinette kitchener.
