For the Yarn Queen

It's Aunt Tina's birthday and since she has recently become the 
Yarn Queen of the South
we thought this Yarn Painting would be a perfect present!
Here's to you Aunt Tina:

*Tink is a verb that means to unknit by taking out a stitch at a time. You will not find this in a dictionary, though (yet).
*What is a nupp (rhymes with soup)? It is an Estonian knitting technique that results in a small bobble. Increase 1 stitch to 3 or 5 stitches, turn and knit those stitches together.
*The US dollar is 6.1" long. This is a handy fact when you need to measuring your knitting and have no ruler available.
* I-cord is short for Idiot cord. This technique was so named by Elizabeth Zimmermann because it is so easy even an idiot can do it. I-cord was originally called “stay-lace” and used in corsets.



Did you hear about the cat who swallowed a ball of yarn?
She had mittens.
