Christmas Balls


Here are two of the Christmas Balls I made.



One was done this year (red), one last year (green). They're not quite as perfect as I'd like (being pretty detail oriented!), but they are a lot of fun to make and are great practice at stranded knitting.

Sweet Tomato Heel Socks

Has anyone tried socks using the brilliant Cat Bordhi's "Sweet Tomato Heel?" I bought the e-book last night and have done a heel-only to try the technique. I really like the smooth look as well as the ease of making it. There is no heel flap, there are no wraps to conceal, nor any stitches to pick up.

Miniature knitting (Amazing video!)

A few days ago I had posed a question about small gauge knitting needles. I got a lot of good information, thanks everyone! Just yesterday I ordered some 000 and some 000-000 (5/0] DPNs from Hiya Hiya because I would like to experiment a bit with miniature knitting.

Small gauge DPNs

I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for DPNs below US size 0. I'm looking for something like 00 or 000 and I wondered if anyone has gotten any brands that they have liked in particular and/or have held up well. And if so, where did you purchase them? I have really liked all the Knitpicks needles I have used, but they only go down to size 0. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hermit Crab

Hi Guys! I wanted to share with you a hermit crab that I knit from a pattern by Hansi Singh. It was a project that I started last fall. We were in PA visiting my parents and on the way home I wanted something to work on. I ended up getting most of the legs done on that trip.

Beware of Alligators!

One of the more recent projects I've made is another "toy." I like how portable they are to work on since they're mostly done in small parts. And I've become quite fond of the piecing together stage for some reason. Mattress stitch is our friend, after all!
