Nevertheless, picture book illustrators are HUGE fans of depicting knitting in this fashion. Time after time they muck up this very easy rendering of hands knitting. But know this: I keep track every single year. And now is the time for a reckoning. If you are an artist and you find yourself on this list, do not fret too much.
Many great illustrators have made this mistake. Lots of people! How did stack up in terms of stitches? If you get the knitting needles correctly positioned, you get your title mentioned. That cannot be easy. She seems to be enjoying herself, though. So sweet! How can you resist this piggy? Again, knitting with hooves. These barnyard beasts are certainly determined to create handmade knitwear. But why are the needles looking like the television antennae of old-timey TV sets? And how does that stray pom-pom fit into all of this?
The bunny appears to have a death grip on each one of the needles and is stabbing them relentlessly into the top of that sock. It bought the sock, grabbed some needles and yarn, flung everything out the window, and is now pretending like mad to be the one responsible for its creation. This one takes a bit of concentration. I guess we can assume that the yellow has finished its job and now the rest of the scarf will be purple? Enough of that. Meanwhile I was at work going through my usual pile of picture books when I came across the image above. While it may be a little loosey goosey in what knitting actually resembles, there was no denying that the needles were facing the correct way.
Full credit to you, Luciana Navarro Powell! Please forgive the quality of the image. I had to work off of an ebook galley to capture this one. Whatever the case, thank you, Tad! Once again your fine attention to small details puts you over the top. You can find posts on this topic here and here and here. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person.
Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. Follow her on Twitter: fuseeight. I think the incorrect needle placement comes from years of cartoons. This commercial from the late 90s used to make me cringe on so many levels.
It depicts toilet paper being hand quilted but the quilters are using knitting needles held the incorrect way. As a recent convert, I can attest that it is both fast and efficient! Ah, this is the comment I get sometimes but that does not often contain quite as much information.
Thank you! Curious, I did a Google image search of the terms and found. Miss Marple. And pretty much only Miss Marple. This le me to conclude that unless the picture book illustrators featured here today are big time Agatha Christie fans and have mentally set their books in the parts of England that would favor this style, they were perhaps more enamored of the sight of sticky up needles than the logistics of the thing. It sounds quite interesting! Sooo, I had to go look up Miss Marple style knitting after reading the comments and it looks from the photos like only one needle is held pointed skyward; the other needle is still pointed down.
Loved your blog today. I have wondered about this for some time. I did this too! In the knitting illustrations for my unpublished so far picture book, I created actual knitting for reality. Re the toilet paper and, the company received so many s from quiters their server shut down.
I did one time see the ad remade with needle and thread. Also, about 40 years ago I knew a lady from Belgium who held one needle under her armpit and only moved the other needle. I taught school for 43 years and always included needle crafts. Another quilter and knitter here. I also recall that commercial and remember that it was redone with the correct form of needlework shown due to the company having received so many complaints.
I marked it down to ignorance on the part of the animator. I think there actually IS a reverse garter stitch which is purling every row. Might be used as part of a pattern where you need to start a garter stitch section on a purl row. Pay close attention to the two balls of yarn that are slightly different colors. One is purple and the other is blue. The purple is always on the left needle viewers perspective while the blue is always on the right. While this is not impossible to achieve, who in the world would actually knit like that?
Thus, I conclude that this book actually belongs in the section of books where the illustrator messed up the depiction of knitting once again. Carole Hicks, your Belgian knitter was almost certainly a leftie, taught by a rightie. Having had many discussions over the years, this is commonly seen in leftie knitters who knit right handed! And to Carol Hicks—I too have witnessed this interesting form in knitting as : one needles under the arm tucked into the arm out and the other doing all the work!!
Thanks to all! My sister- in — law ex whose mum was German, taught her to knit going back and forth across the knitting and not turning it round after every row. Can anyone explain that to me please? It also has patterns for the knitted items included in the book! It staggers me that a woman growing up during that time would get knitting wrong. What a smart theory! That had never quite occurred to me before, but when you say it, it makes perfect sense.
