After about two and a half weeks of working on this cowl I finished all the stitching and had only two things left to do. 1. Pick up the provisional cast on stitches and 2. graft the two ends together. Well, I started the project with a 2x2 rib knit and did not pick up the stitches correctly.
Years ago when i first started knitting I found it to be most default often losing count of vary simple pattern repeat like in a rib stitch. At the time I did not know why but it frustrated me to no end and was one of the reasons I gave up on knitting.
Hi. Happy New Year. Hope all of you had a good holiday. On Monday, I start Prosthetic Technician classes at the local community college. Knitting will take a back seat to my school work and new training. I have to put the yarn physically out of reach. There are about half a dozen things I'd like to knit and techniques to learn and practice.
Came across this three day conference in Santa Clara, CA feb 23-26. Anyone know anything about it? Anyone going?
After tinking my last scarf...i got the idea to work with different color combination. Since my project has been with one color. So I took on the challenge and with a suggestion from a fellow MWK member, Mark, I set out on an attempt to learn Intarsia. I made a small swatch but I think I have raised my skill level a half notch or so... :-)
I've knitted a few items that have turned out pretty good but I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't mastered the basic beanie. Since my formal instruction consisted of "measure head, cast on, knit, decrease at the crown" I think I may have missed a trick or two. I've searched through patterns too, but still wasn't trusting them to give me what I want.
Hello to all and a happy new year!
Is there a place where men meet to knit and chat as so many women do? We live in Upper Bucks County, Pa.
I just wanted to say a quick "hello" to everyone out there. I ran into this site a few weeks ago and enjoyed reading everyone's posts so much that I just HAD to join. I've been knitting on and off since I was about 7 years old and crocheting on and off since I was about 17 (more 'off' than 'on' so I'm still a novice at both arts lol).
