A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

in the high desert and I’ve managed to catch some of the sunshine sitting outside, ripping, and casting on again the sock sample of Violins.

In between these snatched hours of sunshine, I have also been busily communicating with my good friend in Wisconsin in order to perfect the details of a dress pattern for her daughter. Here is a great little tutorial illustration of duplicate stitch whether or not you are new to this technique or a seasoned knitter that needs a refresh course.

I have searched and viewed a ton of YouTube tutorials on duplicate stitch, hoping to locate a good demonstration. Sadly, I won’t recommend any of the ones I’ve seen for best results with this technique. Do you have one you like to share?

Instead of a knitterly clip, how about this for a good laugh? I’ll bet half the royals (the younger ones at least) would love it to be this way too!

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
