It's been quite a fall/early winter and I haven't been on much. At the end of September, I moved back to the US after 14 years in Turkey. I have been knitting here and there though,and as life settles down, I've slowly been getting back into old habits. :) Also enjoying some new ones!
After the challenge from michaelpthompson, I thought hard and long about how to do this. The other night, at 1 am when I sat down to watch "The Interview", I decided to do a sample. Doing it in your head is not always the same as actually doing it on the needles!
As soon as my son and his family left to go home to TN I began the scarf. I am making it for myself. The color is pecan from La Jolla "Baah" Original Hand Painted Yarn 100% Super wash Merino - Fingerling Weight 30 sts +4 inches. I am using Lantern Moon 3.5 mm/US4 sized needles. Jeffrey
Good Morning Guys,
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year. Here's to completing projects, adding to the stash and having a great time with a craft that we all share. Glad for this community of knitting brothers.
Merry Christmas to all,
My next project will be the Socks Appeal Boxers by the Skacel Collection. I just cast on the 56 stitches required for the center back panel. I am using leftover yarn in my stash. Should be fun and easy. Mindless TV knitting while sitting with my wife while she is watching her shows. Hope you've all got your shopping done. JRob
OK, so my daughter wants a scarf in the spirit of Wesley Crusher's sweater in Star Trek.
Just finished binding off Barndom a Stephen West design (see my previous post). Need to weave in the loose ends and block. Hope to complete tomorrow night so that I can wear it Christmas Eve. Loved the pattern and design. JRob
Happy Holidays All,
Well Barndom is coming off the needles just in time for Christmas. I love the bind-off technique. I have never used this method before. BO all stitches loosely on RS row as follows, (k2tog tbl, slip st back to left needle) to end of row. It creates a beautiful edge.
Hope your New Year is filled with fantastic yarn, great patterns and
