Hello, and welcome to the Experimental Knitbook. Here you will find pictures and details about the sewing and craft projects that I work on; I knit, crochet, sew, and occasionally dabble in things like counted-cross stitch, embroidery, and patchwork. I am mostly self-taught and have learned a lot from the blogs of others, and hope to record pictures and information here that will help others learning the same things.
A few comments about the name of this blog:
The ‘experimental’ part references the fact that my day job is a scientific researcher, and I perform experiments. It is also a pretty good description of how I normally work—I regularly adapt patterns and techniques, which can have unpredictable results. While keeping a lab notebook isn’t necessary in my field to log results, they are useful to record details of what methods worked and what didn’t, and I hope this blog serves a similar purpose.
Knits are singled out because I spend most of my time working with knit fabric; I knit a lot of accessories, and most of my sewing is with stretch fabrics. Whatever your interest is, I hope you find something worthwhile during your stay. Enjoy!
