I have recently solved a problem I had when doing ‘cut and sew’ necklines. It has always been difficult to keep the knitting ‘square’ to mark the neckline out! When preparing to ‘cut and sew’ last week, I thought of my Swatch Board from B Hague & Co Ltd. The knitted front clung to the board wonderfully and stayed put, while I marked the neck with the assistance of Carl Boyd's Cut and Sew Template. Result - a well balanced neck and 100% success at last! After 54 years of machine knitting I have made a wonderful discovery - never too old to learn, are we! Maybe other knitters thought of this a long time ago, but it may be of use to somebody.
Thank you for all your efforts in keeping the magazine going. Every month gives me fresh inspiration - after a break for a year or two whilst having two cataracts removed, a knee joint replacement, a carpal tunnel operation and more recently major abdominal surgery, I am now back in full swing and coping with keeping ten grand children in knits! Keep up the good work!
Yours sincerely, Jean Herbert
