vandermeer’s favorite

I’m a poor underdog,
But to-night I will bark
With the great Overdog
That romps through the dark.

Robert Frost, Canis Major

THE LO-DOWN

sturdy, unfurling and cozy, the garter stitch is vandermeer’s all-time favorite.  garter stitch is great for stabilizing stitches that curl, making high use items like dish cloths & rugs, or things to keep you wrapped up in toasty-ness like blankets, bouncy sweaters, scarves and slippers.
