As must be obvious, there is no tech editor at Chez TECHknitting. Accordingly, this blog sometimes gets disorganized. I thought we were heading for garment shaping, I've even knitted up a bunch of samples, but when it came time to write and illustrate all the tricks in the shaping, it turned out that there are still lots of techniques to cover first.

Accordingly, I've axed the previous post with its false promises about socks and garment shaping. Regardless of whatever was stated earlier, this blog simply hasn't progressed as far as garment shaping: not socks, not sweaters, not yet. Instead, for the foreseeable future, TECHknitting will be taking up the old torch again and concentrating on the TECHnique of making knitted fabric.  

Specifically, we'll start tomorrow with a post concerning provisional cast on--what to do about the fact that when you take out the provisional cast on, you'll have 1 less stitch heading "down" than you had heading "up."

Until tomorrow--

Well we know you're doing your best to teach all of us whom are trying to learn to knit/improve our knitting. You just do what you feel you need to do and don't worry about what anyone else says. You're doing a GREAT job!
Thanks so much for spending your time (that you could spend knitting something that YOU would like to knit) writing this blog for the rest of us. I appreciate it!

I'm with Darlene. I would read (almost) anything that you write, Techknitter. I've learned so much from what you do. And, I plan to vote for you once again in the next Bobby poll on Ravelry.
