Yarn Along: Elizabeth Zimmerman...


I am slowly moving forward on the Tea Leaves Cardigan.  Dividing for the sleeves is next on the agenda and then I will begin working on the body.  We're going on a rather long car trip over the weekend, so I am hoping to get a lot accomplished.  There was very little done on the last long car trip we took, so I'm not holding my breath!

I am reading Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman.  She had me with the following:

"Really all you need to become a good knitter are wool, needles, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence.  Of course superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage."

love anything EZ. She was before her time and now we use every scrap of knowledge she shared in the knitting world. I'm lucky I have all her books :)

I love that quote and agree 100%! Although it might take above average IQ to do some of the more complicated knitting like Fair Isle... I have been too chicken to really find out!

Your cardi is a gorgeous color!
