Shetland stole

I just finished this traditional Shetland stole. It measures about 80 x 200 cm and is knitted from 91 grammes of 1 ply Shetland Supreme which is about 1500metres. The patterns are from Sharon Miller's book "Heirloom Knitting".
Best regards from a sunny Denmark

Don't fix it if it ain't broke. Right?

Now knowing that saying, why did I try toe-up socks?? I was doing just fine ankle-down when this stupid idea hit me.

I don't watch TV, but I suppose some of you will see the humor in this.

Zane Gray socks

These were my travel project for the last several months which means I only worked on them on long driving trips, meetings, in between big project or when dummy at the bridge table.

Help with E Zimmerman's Seamless Sweater

Hi Guys,

Asplund's picture


It has happened again, for the third time! First I myself matched the kitchen curtains at work wearing a new sweater, a few months later a colleague matched the curtains in her office wearing a cardigan I had knitted for her, and yesterday another colleague found herself matching the wallpaper in her new cardigan!

Been a while...

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here or posted, and I've missed a lot. I hope everyone is doing well and in good spirits. That being said, in an earlier blog entry I talked about how I had messed up just as I was finishing a project (a cowl for my boyfriend) and that I started over.

Carlito Cardigan

Has anyone had a problem with the left lower front section. My pattern reads as follows:
SETUP 2X2 RIB (WS): K2, P2
ROW 1 (RS): P2, K2
Work even for [#] rows ending with a wrong side row

Begin following Front chart for your size here.

As far as I can tell from the picture there are not [#+] rows until you start the Diagonal Cables. Any suggestions?
