It's been a while since I checked in . Figured I'd share what I am currently working on.
Here is my latest sock in progress, shown on top of the original antique pair.
I thought I would post pics of the finished sock that I wrote about a few weeks back. Once again, the goal was to reproduce this antique sock as closely as possible, considering the materials on hand.
Its been quite a while since I posted, so I thought I'd finally write again. Last time I wrote I was struggling to figure out what I call 'open work' but I guess it is technically lace. I figured it out - thanks to some nice help from the guys here - and went to make a pair of armlets/sleeves that I wanted to complete a costume. I'll post pics later if anyone cares to see them.
Its been a long time since I knit! and I need to do this project to make some sleeves for a costume. This, or something similar is what I want, but I am feeling dumb that I can't figure it out. Any one know what this, or some similar patter, is?
Any help is appreciated.
so i pretty much finished all the 'Macedonian appropriate'(my term)
men's long socks from my last post. i decided to tackle a project a friend
asked me to do, which is to copy a pair of women's Thracian traditional socks
for him. after working on the thick men's socks, using inexpensive synthetic
heavy 4 ply yarn and #8 needles, it was a real challenge readjusting to using
so i too just started to knit socks this summer, after working on an ethnic multi-colored legging project for a while.
since i got pretty comfortable with stranding 2 colors, i figured i had to now tackle a 3 color project. here is where i'm at so far.
It's my birthday today, so I figured I'd finally introduce myself and post my projects.
