New Blanket

Yes, summer has finally arrived here and I have a new blanket! I needed it earlier when it was rather chilly (and they turned the heat off in the building) so I started on this one. It took me about 5 and a half weeks. I had some trouble with my hand and was delayed somewhat.

socks

I am a real fan of Arne and Carlos from Norway. So when they designed six different sock yarns for Regia, I had to buy them. I knit up the first pair and am very pleased with the pattern and with the yarn itself. 2.25 mm needles.

I have started a new raglan sweater lately. Will it be a crew or turtle neck, I don't know yet!

Left-over Sweater

I had 9 balls of beige in Jamieson and Smith 4 ply Jumper Shetland Wool and dug out out 9 other balls of different colours. I used lovat, mustard, silver, periwinkle, sand, live lobster, spring green, oatmeal, and grape. I kept them in that order with a row of beige every other row. I knitted it with 3.25 mm needles. It is nice and warm and will be great in the autumn.

issues with No Stitch

Hello All,
I'm looking at a pattern/chart and I ran across a No Stitch symbol. I'm curious, how does one execute that No Stitch?

Fair Isle Knitting

Hello gents!

I don't know the ID of the gentleman who does the wonderful fair isle knitting on here but maybe someone could bring this link to his attention.

Found a wonderful vintage fair isle pattern online. Not sure if it'll be his cup of tea or not, but here's the link anyway.

Latest socks.

This pair of tube socks has been in the works for quite some time but were finished this morning. A little bit of ripping back when I first started them [too tight] and at the very end [reshaping the toe decreasing for a more pleasing look] but, otherwise, a pretty fast and satisfying project when I could just work on them.

April Socks - updated

These are the latest socks. They took exactly 4 weeks to knit; the second in only 10 days. I would've been faster if I'd not been reading so much. LOL
The yarn is from Mary Maxim and was a gift. These socks will be given to a friend who admires the colors. Not that I'm too butch to wear them myself.

Knitted Mystery Has Been Solved!

It is a silly pink elephant balloon animal, here it is all twisted together. Since I had no grey yarn in my stash, I decided to make it pink. If you are old enough you will know all about pink elephants.
