Celebrating my 42nd birthday today.
Here is my gift:
a Men's Top down drop sleeve cardigan. Size 38, gauge 5x6/inch.
This is just my starting point, I increased the cast on stitches to 109. Needed the extra stitch to center the 4x1 rib pattern I am using. There will be more tweeks to come as I reconsider button placement, collar options and pockets.
Knit skeleton anyone?
It appears each bone was knitted individually.
Someone posted this on my FB-page. I must say, "I am impressed." Since I have not seen it here, I thought I would share. Each character is distinctive.
I just finished my first sweater in time for the holidays.
for more info:
I found this program on the web for designing stitch patterns.
It is one of the few programs that offer a simulated view of the stitch pattern. Stitch patterns can be viewed as, vertical repeats, horizontal repeats, or all over patterns.
I have been researching Double Knitting(DK) and wanted to share what I have found so far. Here is a list of DK tutorials in picture form.
Any advice for knitting in high humidity? Yarn recommendations? cheap acrylic gets unmanageable (*hears Bill snickering in the background).
Has anyone taken an online class from Craftsy.com?
I have tried the free short row class, free with registration. It was helpful. Anyone have any info on the full classes?
Arbor Day came and went. I did not get to plant a tree this year, sad. I did thin down my perennial herb bed, sharing culinary herbs with neighbors was almost as rewarding. I mean who does not enjoy fresh oregano, thyme, sage, rosemary, mint, and lemon balm.
