First find a tree with two strong, relatively horizontal limbs within four or five feet of each other. Cast on to one limb by wrapping it in rope (I prefer 3/16” nylon), then use a long circular needle to knit the first row of loops. (Since your local yarn store doesn’t carry ten-foot long circular needles in a two- inch diameter, try the hardware store. Buy a length of plastic tubing, carve a set of needle ends out of 2” dowel, and use duct tape to smoothly attach them.)PDF Link (via Making Light)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
