knitting geekery, longies

TECHknitter’s post on flat tops and no distortion of ribbing at the crown decreases for ribbed hats.

I know most of my readers aren’t knitters. And even those who are aren’t as geeky as me.

But a  few of you are just as geeky and “I can’t knit a pattern unless I modify it.” Enjoy!

On that note, finally got my own copy of EZ’s Knitter’s Almanac. Best $8 I’ve spent in years! Contrary to what many have been told, Little Turtle Knits did not come up with the term “longies” for knitted wool pants. So if you’re selling them as longies and get hassled by someone who says you can’t call them that unless you get a LTK license, refer them to page 25 of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac and tell them to buzz off. So there!

I know a few knitters who were bullied a bit about that a few years ago. Meh.
