After feeling like my knitting projects are taking forever to finish, I decided to take a few days off to do a fun crochet project. I made a puppy beanie for my 6 month old nephew. The project took a few hours, less than a day if I would have worked on it without stopping. I've had a lot of rave reviews (and a few requests as usual).
I have heard much about Signature Needles and would like to ask you guys your opinions. I am interested in a set of 5 sock needles and realize I have a choice of length and also of the type of point. Have you used them? Do you know anyone who has?
OR - what kind of needles do you use. I have tried 3 different kinds of wooden needles and do not like them.
My lace knitting journey continues. I finished the caps and blogged about it. Thought I might give them as gifts but then decided to keep them. Now I've actually moved on to knitting a cardigan. The pattern is Kelmscott by Carol of Sunday knits. The yarn recommended is of course one of the reasons I chose this pattern. It is an angora/merino blend, which is pretty much all I do in handspun.
This appeared in yesterday's "Zaman" newspaper. Interesting that it was considered unusual enough to make the news. :)
Well Guys I did it, I started my own blog. Take a look at it and join. It is for those of us who use knitting boards, Knifty Knitters and circular knitting machines. http://fibergadgetguy.blogspot.com/ It is nothing fancy but just a little part of the internet to call my own.
I have some news, we (my partner and I) have purchased a holiday home on Big Tancook Island here in Nova Scotia. Lucy Neatby lives just around the corner from us. The Ferry ride is 1 hour each way so I will get lots of knitting done. lol
Here is something I just finished for my partner. He love's to txt and being that we live in Sother CA the weather is fair most of the year. He loves them this was before blocking them but they still look good.
