This is my first visit to your blog, by way of Aija's blog. And I love that you have Joan Hickson as your picture. She was the best Miss Marple E V E R. Now I need to go back and reread everything.

The method of knitting argyle in-the-round with short rows that you attribute to Lucia Liljegren was first published by Suzann Thompson in Threads Magazine, June 1992 issue, and reprinted in the book Knitting Around the World in 1993 by Taunton Press.

honeybee33, thank you for your information. I'm sure there's very little in the knitting world that someone else hasn't already thought of, but that doesn't mean that one author's explanation is taken from another's. Lucia states in her blog that she developed her method without having seen it elsewhere, and I have no reason to doubt her word.

For my article about seamless argyles in Threads, I researched industrial sock knitting, because the realization struck me that my store-bought argyle socks had no seams. Essentially, I adapted a machine-knitting technique to hand-knitting. And guess what?! I'm teaching a seamless argyle sock class at Stitches East in October 2007.

You're right Sara, people discover stuff all the time that has already been discovered. I like to call this phenomenon "Great minds think alike!"

This is quite an amazing post. As an amateur knitter I've spent a lot of time designing a hat for my friend that incorporates my friend's record label. Imagine my surprise when I was ready to start the design that I practised for weeks in intarsia and then realized it wouldn't work in the round! It was essential that it was worked seamless. Your explanation was sooooo helpful and easy to understand.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you!

this solves my argyle-in-the-round problem! and i agree with Karen: I adore Miss Marple and, in particular, Joan Hickson as Miss Marple. Even though I'm stumbling upon your post years after you wrote it, I had to comment. Thank you!

Oh my gosh, THANK YOU! This is a very thorough explanation to a confusing topic. I've read tons of other directions on how to do intarsia in the round and this one is by far the best. Ever think of adding some photos to it as well for those of us who are visual learners?

THANK YOU!!!!

Sharon Watterson

Such an informative post, thank you. I've always winged it before, but these methods are perfect solutions.

EEP! Would someone be willing to make a youtube video of this? I can't learn things from writing. I'm too much of a visual learner, and I'd looked on youtube for videos already :(

What an idea,
Great tips, I would like to join your blog anyway,

I read once that sailors of old used to cry out 'To sail is everything; to live is not', when they were heading out into particularly choppy waters. I know it sounds a bit grim but I love the idea of taking a chance on your passion rather than living your whole life 'safe'.
