Okay, so I was just playing around on Etsy.com and I found this:
I want ... no NEED to knit this... now, I am not good at finding patterns ...
can anyone help??
This is the guitar "strap" I made for my best friend's daughter, and the guitar that she got for her. I based it off the "Marley's Ghost" scarf thing on Knitty.com. The links were fun and easy to make and the yarn is just good ol' Cascade 220.
So Christmas and Hanukkah and the rest of everything is upon us and i thought i would share some thoughts.
1. My fingers are continually bleeding from knitting and erasing patterns for presents. However i have managed to create at least 50% of my presents.....im glad.
2. Joanns and Michaels does sometimes have some nice yarn. Try it out. Pretty good prices for merino, blends etc. Holiday times it might be picked over....so i found the other day (that'll teach me to go yarn shopping so close to Christmas)
3. I am so sick of hearing the John lennon and Yoko Ono Christmas song. War is unfortuantely, not over. Its just a hopeful song i guess....hear that Mr bush...?
4. I will ALWAYS keep receipts and labels from yarn. AlWAYS!!!
5. Knitting a dreidle is interesting.
6. I made the cable stocking from Vogue Knitting International Holiday mag and the toe is short. and I didnt take it out cuz i dont care at this point. myabe i will next season.
Im done. Thanks for allowing this vent. *off the soapbox*
thanks guys for your input - here's the intarsia thing so far -- circles are a nightmare - I think there's going to be 19 pieces of yarn I'll be working with at one point - when I get in the middle... I know it's not impressive yet - I'll show you when it gets closer to being done...
I am also interested in finding out how people think it should be finished - the back of intarsia isn't really pretty (despite my attempt!) - so I think I'll end up making 2 of these scarves (or another scarf in stripes or a different pattrn) and attaching them together - anyone have other ideas?
Hey, I had a blast doing the secret santa. I hope eveyone did. It was fun thinking of what to do, wrapping it up, braving the crowd at the mail store. Then every day I waited with anticipation, wondering, will my package come today! It was great. I had a blast and I think we should do it every year. Thanks again Rick.
hi guys! haven't posted anything lately as i've been busy knitting a sweater with Jesse "KIWIKNITTER" he has been supporting me and lending advice!! Will post a picture when finished. I'm just in the research stage of starting up an online wool store servicing the Australian market and was wondering if anyone has any advice Jesse thought that there were a couple of MWK members who had done just that!! Would love to hear from You!! Regards Arron
