Here is a picture of a a knit and purl "checkerboard" pattern I am starting on... 4 knit 4 purl repeat....I like the texture and pattern. I am using Cascade 220 yarn on number 5 needles.
Here are some pic's of my LYS and also the place I work three days a week (I am supposed to be retired lol). I am no photographer so please excuse the poor quality.
I had some Bartlett's "Natural" that just kept screaming at me to be balled from the skein and then knit.
Apparently, it wanted to become socks.
My grandmother made this for me before she passed. She wrote all of the patterns but they have since been lost. I hope to recreate them as I get time so I can make this afghan for myself.
So I am starting (practicing) my first pair of toe up socks (I have done cuff down already). I am having problems with the increases.
Hi guys. Tonight was knit night at my LYS. Had great time as usual. I really like going to knit night. It's like therapy for me.
A friend of mine at work just had a baby. I remembered the Cat Hat that OtterTO posted a while back and thought it would make the perfect gift.
Here's the deal. My landlady has a job that has her trudging around in miserable weather trying to mess with a darned GPS.
The Basket weave Square from the Barbara Walker book is a very interesting square and one of the most beautiful textures.
