when i started this blog, i really wanted the title to be "knit2purl1." i had just started teaching myself to knit and many patterns have the above repeat. i have only made one that had the pattern of "knit3purl1"- it was a dishcloth. knit, by definition means, "to tie together" and purl means "the intertwisting of thread that knots a stitch usually along an edge." now that we are a family of three, i think it is so fitting as we are knitting the three of us together into one family.
