SECOND THOUGHTS

Woolly's fans will already have a good idea of the way she thinks. Having second thoughts does not mean that Woolly has had a change of heart about the ideas she introduced in Woolly Thoughts. These are extra thoughts based on the same principles. You do not need to have read Woolly Thoughts in order to be able to follow the new ideas because the basics are briefly repeated at the back of this book.


She is still working entirely in garter stitch, using any yarn to make items to fit any size. The pictures elsewhere on this site will give you an idea of what she has been thinking about


There are ten chapters:


Contemplations

Woolly's thoughts about new ways of using garter stitch, without having to make tension squares or do any complicated calculations  


Adaptations

Plans for three different garments each starting from a handful of squares

 

Foundations

The basics

Use any yarn for a perfect fit  


Continuations

An introduction to the ideas to be developed later

All in garter stitch  


Elongations

Garments from strips and stripes in various directions  


Conglomerations

Jumbles of pieces and how to turn them into a sweater that fits  


Centralisations

Work from the centre out to achieve zig-zags and other effects  


Transformations

Turn squares into waistcoats (vests) and waistcoats into sweaters  


Innovations

Suggestions to help you find new ideas of your own  


Demonstrations

Explanations of techniques, and the mathematics behind some of the ideas  



This book has 114 pages. There are many new drawings of Woolly and friends and dozens of diagrams to help you on your way with creating your own designs.
