For those of you who have been wishing for a pair of cosy mittens, and the skills to make them, I so am pleased show you appleturnover’s latest movie, “Cabled Mittens.” (Just bought the cabled mittens project kit? This is the place to work along with the movie tutorials! Go right ahead.)
If you just have a minute, you might enjoy the preview of the movies in the Knitting Series.
We filmed the Knitting Series in my mother’s bright studio in Deep Cove, and like the Quilting Series, the camera looks over my shoulder as I work, to help you see, step-by-step, every method needed to cable-knit your own mittens.
For these movies we’ve added the dimension of animation, so another aspect of my art practice has reappeared. Lovely. We’re not drawing so much as writing on the screen, to help illustrate the old techniques clearly. Typography! I adore it.
