I tried something new today; praise me now! I was blog-surfing yesterday and ran across a reference to a piece Iris Schreier did for Knitty Gritty on modular knitting. That's the Iris that wrote Modular Knits: New Techniques for Today's Knitters and Exquisite Little Knits (neither of which I own or have read). Although I don't really care for the look of modular knitting in general (too busy for my tastes; I know, I know, I'm usually so loud in my tastes, but what can I say? I'm an enigma), I was interested in giving it a try in order to increase my skills. And I had heard it is a type of short-row knitting, which I really need to learn (I *need* to be able to add darts to my sweaters, in a big way).

So I decided to make a swatch and add it to my Freeform Knitting 365 Project. Here it is, in situ.

Definitely go check out the work of my fellow freeformers: AmberDorkoStopper, Knitsocks, and Villageknittiot; their projects are equally amazing. Here's a little peek:

Also, Amber is chronicling our freeform adventures on her blog, Do the Things. If you want more info on our project, or are interested in joining us, read our discussions in our flickr group: Freeform Knit 365.


  1. short row knitting is actually super easy. Except if you're as forgetful as me, and can't remember where you got to on the last row...

  2. thanks, idleberry! my friend knitsocks explained it to me after the fact; it was indeed easy-peasy! going to check out your site now...


Tell me what you're thinking, I dare you!
