I ran across some of my older knitted projects--this one was the very first attempt I made at knitting.
First 77 rows done. A few minor screw ups along the way, but going well.
Here she is ! Ms. Maggie . My monster. She loves this lime green, purple, and yellow costume. She will not let me take it off of her...
I have been knitting for about two months, and most of those two months have been me learning how to hold the needles properly, how to do different stitches, and how to read the patterns.
My current bedtime reading is Elizabeth Zimmerman's "Knitting Without Tears". I came across her method for joining a new skein of yarn while knitting, without making a knot.
Another chemo cap. This one is made from Knitpicks Shine Worsted in Hollyberry. The picture does not do the yarn justice, it is a very rich dark red, just beautiful.
This is another hat I have made to donate to chemo patients. It is made from a hand painted merino yarn I purchased on Etsy.
Okay, so I'm "relearning" knitting in Continental style. I'm noticing that the stitch is REALLY loose, but I can't seem to pull it tight, what do you do???
