Just a quick post here. I wanted to let you all know that I've finished the tutorial on How to knit 2 socks at the same time on 1 long circular needle. I've created a separate blog for this and other techniques that I might learn as I continue my knitting journey - The Boy Who Knits - Techniques.
There are 6 parts to this sock installment:
These instructions can also be found on the sidebar of my main blog, under "Techniques".
The cell phone caddy I made for my boyfriend was met with such an exclamation of delight that I just had to make him another one, so that he can coordinate with his outfits, ya know. This time I used the other novelty yarn that I bought, Ticker Tape, and added an outer pocket for his iPod Nano.
As promised, a picture of my first jumper. It's not as impressive as the beautiful socks and shawls on this site, so please forgive me, but so far it's the most adventurous thing I've tackled. I did struggle evenly picking up the neck but it will be better the next time I promise. I am hoping Feed the Children, which is the charity I have knitted it for, like it and that it brightens up the life of one of the abandoned/orphaned children they are trying to help. The colours aren't subtle but they did ask for them to be bright and cheerful so it serves them right!<
