I made this sweater for my sister. I used Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight and 3.25 mm needles. The colour is Thistle and is much prettier than the pictures show.
I knit a sweater for my friend Miguel while I was in Mexico but just blocked it a couple of days ago.
Is someone able to direct me to a site that gives you an estimation of how much yarn one needs to knit a sweater.
I usually try to knit a pair of socks every month so many friends give me sock yarn. I only knit with one kind and, therefore, have a stash of nice soft yarn that I wouldn't use for socks.
I am heading home soon and didn't want to start a big project. I found the Baktus Scarf by Strikkelise on Ravelry and it seemed to fit the bill.
Finished up a new cardigan this weekend. I only ever made Fair Isle Vests as drop shoulder sweaters are very unflattering on me.
I made a pair of heavy socks for my brother-in-law who does a lot of outside work in the winter. I used Briggs and Little Tuffy and 4mm needles.
I finished a square shawl with some Bluefaced Leciester 2/8 from The Fleece Artist in Nova Scotia in the colourway "Victoria". I used 4.5 mm needles.
I finished this cardigan a month or so ago but just washed and blocked it today. My friend Miguel tried it on but I had knit it for myself and it is much too large for him.
I am looking for 6 ply sock yarn (75%wool and 25% nylon, more or less). Dennis who works at Romni in Toronto told me they carry a self striping one. I would prefer a solid colour.
