I am very excited. I finished a scarf this weekend for a dear friend; I hope she likes it. I have to say, it was an easy knit. I used size 50 needles. It took about 3 hours total.
Oops. I just realized that I did the cable cast-on for my sweater incorrectly. Instead of going between the two stitches with the needle tip, I went through one only, just like knitting.
So I'm running low on yarn..and I wanted to buy some more today, a very simple task one might think but Germany hates me on this particular day of the week.
Well it finally happened. I was coming home from Mexico yesterday and the Security people opened my bag and found my knitting needles.
Fleegle has unvented a way to knit garter stitch in the round without purling or using wrap and turn. I found this fascinating and can't wait to try it.
So i've been a very busy boy lately... I've made the 2 tote bags I had been working on and planning on using for Etsy inventory- but they sold before I could even put them online... so alas...
Ok, I really dig the way this stitch looks but, am having a nicotine withdrawl day and really don't feel like following the pattern in the book, anyone know of a site that has a video on this?
As much as I've been enjoying the "hat a day" bit, I realize it's not helping me fulfill what I really want to do, which is to get my sweater patterns finished and made and tested, and sized...
Thought I would post some pictures of my progress with the KAL. I have managed in the time for the first boot to knot both so I am going to knit a second pair in the second half of the KAL
