Tapas with Candace Eisner Strick
Sample little bites of the best knitting has to offer: try one fabulous cast-on that gives you instant k1, p1 set-up for ribbing, one unusual bind-off that requires no passing-over of stitches, one unusually beautiful stitch pattern, how to pick up perfectly, yarn-over increases that slant in both directions, a perfectly painless beginning for a circular shawl, a picot bind-off, and a few more delicious little tastes.
About 2 ounces of smooth, light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn and appropriately sized needles; one set double-pointed needles in same size.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
With worsted weight yarn, knit 2 swatches in stockinette stitch about 4" wide and 2" long. Keep both on stitch holders with yarn attached.
