...about a knitted room all for charity.
I'm having a hard time understanding the pattern
Yesterday I experienced something I thought was a thing of the past: I got a funny look and a bit of attitude whilst buying yarn.
Had a full-on day yesterday - started with my first weaving class in which the teacher got me from zero to pattern weaving in three hours.
The Christmas invasion has started!
Not TOO heavy, I know, but how heavy can a scarf comfortably be?
Has anyone knitted the zippy diamond vest from "Never knit your man a sweater..."? I was wondering how the sizes work out. They have a 42" and a 46.5" pattern, but naturally I'm in between. Slightly. Before I add a few stitches and work out additions here and there, can anyone tell me what the finished sizes are like in reality?
I was recently given a kilo cone of laceweight cotton in purest white. It's screaming out to be dyed, so I bought some Procion MX colours and plan to use two methods: immersion for one solid colour, and painting directly onto the skeins to get some variegation.
Now, can anyone tell me how I go about both of these? I've downloaded info off the net, but each website gives a different approach vis-a-vis adding (or not) soda ash, urea, etc and when to do so.
If anyone has had any personal success with these dyes, HELP! (please)
