K1, *drop next st off left needle and carefully unravel this st for 4 rounds (so there are 4"bars" of yarn above st), now K the st 5 rounds below enclosing the 4 "bars" of yarn in the st, K2 rep from *
I get most of this except the enclosing part - anyone have a clue - I tried finding a video… not luck yet.
It's been a while since I checked in . Figured I'd share what I am currently working on.
Registration is now officially open for the 2015 Men's Fall Knitting Retreat. This year's dates are Thursday, September 3 through Sunday, September 6.
We have had a facility cost increase this year, but we have endeavored to keep costs low. Registration prior to May 15 will be $435. This is only a $25 increase from 2014!
Today I got an email regarding Etsy filing a registration statement for an IPO. I know some of you sell things using Etsy so here is the link that announces the registration.
Greetings fellow knitters! :)
I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another.
My silk yarn arrived yesterday in the mail. I was a bit skeptical as the
pic on ebay wasn't all that clear but the price I paid was great considering
how much I would pay for 100% silk at the local yarn store.
Although its a 2 ply, its not a lace weight. Kinda in-between which I am happy about. It would be too thick for a night shirt.
Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.
The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.
