Here is the jersey I just finished knitting on 01 December 2005. It's done in a broken rib stitch in 5-ply wool (I don't think I'd do another project in that size again). The color is a funky retro salmon pink/orange. I must say it's very comfy to wear.
OK be honest, how busy were you for the Holidays?
How many gifts did you knit & what were they?
My circular needles are getting out of hand. I have the Boye's interchangables, (awesome things) but I still have Addis and Susan Bates, and keeping them bound together with a twist tie in a box with other knitting paraphernalia is neither charming nor neat. How does everyone store their circulars?
I have not written much, but my scarf is coming along . It just takes me a long time to knit, unless is a cable sweater, which I love. I am looking forward to the new year and have in my goals make some socks, which Ihave never done before. I may even try ti knit a cap with the foru needles first before I do the socks. I got mysel a nice holiday present, a set of Boye's circular needle set with interchangeable needles. What can I say I am a good bad boy.
I am in need of some guidance with socks. I've been an avid sock knitter for two years and am tired of having to patch the holes where the heel meets the instep. I have this problem whether doing a short row or heel flap-type heel. Any suggestions?
this is the first pair of mittens i've made. i made these mittens for myself b/c i have REALLY long fingers and no mittens ever fit me. i had to alter the pattern a bit, but it didn't give me any problems. i'm looking forward to making another pair similar to these, it was loads of fun and kept me entertained for hours at a time.
I'm knitting the sleeves to my sweater. Frankly they have been driving me a bit crazy since this is the 1st sweater I'm knitting that is not in the round. I've ripped more times than I care to admit.
The pattern calls for a M1 increase at each edge starting on the RS then every following 7th row. The "Following 7th row" instruction is a bit vague to me. Which option is correct?
Row 0 (RS): Increase
* row 1 (WS): P
row 2 (RS): K
row 3 (WS): P
row 4 (RS): K
row 5 (WS): P
row 6 (RS): K
row 7 (WS): Increase *
Row 1 (RS): Increase
* row 2 (WS): P
row 3 (RS): K
