I really LOVE Freecycle!
I answered a post on our local Freecycle (Portland, Maine) where a woman was clearing out her house for putting said house up for sale.
When Ted and I first discussed coordinating a knitting retreat for men, we never expected such a broad response.
Why I cannot get my images to post? Oh, and please use your clearest, non-techie speak...The Pilgrim may be Knitty...but he's no geek!
Over the past year or so, the Pilgrim has created a number of knits for the Long-Suffering Other's adorable neice, the eight-year-old Princess Mary. Mary is more precisely a Pink Princess.
I've had a couple of requests...... so here it is.
After repeatedly ripping out the sock I was working on and getting more and more discouraged, I decided to try a basic sock to boost my confidence a bit.
Well, I'm about done with my housemate's blue scarf and I've begun one for myself, the yarn is organic cotton from Inca Cotton. It is two ply, two colours, and is a thick and thin yarn.
Attached is the scarf for my sister. While I found it fun, I also found it to be a learning experience as they are so many different sts, you need to pay attention.
I'm trying out a scarf design of my own. I'm sure I'll finish it and a million people will have seen a million patterns just like it, but to me, I made it up.
I'm looking for a pattern for a quick sweater made with super bulkey yarn on big needles...anyone know of any...?
