Just wanted to say a big hello after nearly 2 weeks of not reading your posts on MWK. I was having some withdrawal issues!
Again I seem to be posting the same kind of blog.
Another failed attempt at a potentially fantastic sweater!
Hey guys. Finally finished my second attempt at MMario's Queen Anne Lace Shawl and wanted to post a pic.
Well, after a good night sleep I decided that I would try and thread back and rip a few rows from my QAL shawl and go back and correct a few mistakes.
Hey guys, just wanted to share some of my anxiety with you all and ask for some advice.
Just wanted to show you a pic of the progress I'm making on the queen Anne Lace Shawl.
Hey guys, been a long long time since my last post and though I would say a quick hello to all my fellow knitting enthusiasts.
I have to tell you all, im so excited!!!
Steve and I threw a bit of a party tonight and after a few drinks etc I showed our guests what I've been working on. I've recently finished the Jacky Fee sweater, a fantastic long stocking hat and some felted clogs all of them are in awe!!!!
After weeks of ridicule from my so called "friends" I now have orders for several items, including lots of baby clothes, hats and cardgans etc. The best and most exciting thing is that one of the guys who ridiculed me the most is now asking, no sorry telling me that I MUST teach him how to knit!
So watch this space guys, we may have another member very soon
Love you all
So here it is guys. My first sweater using circular needles.
I'm realy happy with the results. I used a chunky wool using 4mm needles for the ribbing and 5 mm for the body and sleeves. I used the fitted sleeves and the raglan seamline A.
If there is anyone out there who hasn't yet got the Jaquelin Fee book "Sweater Workshop" its a must for everyones collection. I found the instructions very user friendly and easy to understand, even the maths!
The best thing about it is actually fits. None of this reading pages and pages of difficult to decipher pattern, then to discover the neck is the wrong shape, or the sleeves feel to tight. Just a few simple sums and hey presto.
