Ok. Here it is! All the lace we’ve knit up to date and numbered below. Now, it’s not just for looking at! We’re hoping you can lend a little advice, input, your quality opinion! Please post a comment telling us which lace you like and whether you prefer it as a headband, a bracelet/cuff or [...]
The past two weeks at CK, we’ve had a knitting student from Goel project. Her name is Son Sovan and she’s from a small village in Takeo province where Goel has a weaving/sewing project.

Moving right along to a new technique, the CK knitters have mastered cables. Cables are one of the easiest knitting decorations to learn, but they look complicated and so pretty. Again, this is for a our future bracelet line. In other news, the accountant called in sick this morning and I was worried about him [...]
