Just finished my new sweater. It's an older pattern, which I prefer. Now for some socks!!!
I haven't been knitting much lately. I've been spending time on my quilting for Project Linus.
I was never so glad to complete a project!
Here you go JRob, it's almost a sock. I don't know the fiber content as the yarn was given to me with a plain white wrapper. When I finish this pair, I'm going to try toe-up and decide which method I prefer. THEN I'll try two at a time. I too have been busy, completing the top of a Quilt of Valor, two dolls, and a bunch of alterations. What are YOU up to?
Finally have it done. It's worsted weight, but I'm not sure of the fiber content. The yarn was given to me rolled in balls. Feels like Acrylic. Sweated it out towards the end, I wasn't sure there'd be enough yarn. I found an error in the pattern for the shawl collar. I had to pick out the bind off, and make it longer, as it didn't fit the lapel. But...I'm done, and on with another sweater.
My first pair of socks are completed!!! Done one at a time using magic loop. I might try two at a time if I can find some good instructions. What do you guys use on here? DPNs, magic loop, or two circs?
I'm not a newbie, but I thought dye lots were a thing of the past. When I realized I hadn't purchased enough yarn for the socks I'm knitting, I went to a store and bought some yarn. Waaaaaaayyyy too light. Wrong dye lot. Having driven almost fifty miles in total, I finally found a ball of the proper dye lot.
I want to give a big thanks to all the men on here who give me positive feedback on my knitting. You are all true artists, and an inspiration to guys like me. Big hugs and a firm handshake!!!
This is my first completed sock. I've already cast on for the second one. It may be a basic pattern, but I'm very proud of this.
