ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the reconsiderations made by the author concerning her assumptions about the relationship between spinning and knitting. The assumptions mentioned in the article state that balanced yarns work best for knitting, and that surface design in knitting is obtained with particular stitch patterns. Moreover, it also presents the assumption that when the stitch patterns are followed, they will continue to produce the same surface design regardless of the yarn. The author experimented with knitting by not starting with a balanced yarn.
