Can anyone direct me to an internet site that shows how to correct cable errors in situ without frogging the entire piece back to the error? Thanks!
I bought two bundles of yarn for my stash this week:
1) From a seller on Craig's List I bought about 30 skeins of Red Heart yarn. Assorted colors. All of it is the usual acyrlic or acrylic/nylon blend. Not a bad deal. I don't usually use this kind of
crap stuff (I'm a wool or cotton man) but it can't hurt to have it around for the next Knit a River project or something.
2) Yarn.com is having an incredible sale. I'm really digging Araucania Nature Wool. It was a recommended substitute for my all time favorite, Rowan Magpie (which was sadly discontinued last year.) Nature Wool is a 100% wool yarn from Chile. It is kettle-dyed by a women's cooperative. There are subtle (and some not so subtle) changes in the color throughout the hank. Very cool. I haven't had a chance to felt any yet but I've heard it's fantastic felted (oh boy, more clogs!)
Hey guys, I sometimes forget that I'm not all alone and you all have VERY GOOD suggestions. I thought I'd see what you all had to say before I made a trip to my LYS.
knitting trying to make an orangutan for one of my nephews. It's done on US #3's, and a DK-weight mohair yarn. I already altered the pattern instructions slightly to be able to knit in the round on DPNs. It's just plain and simple stockinette stitch. I've already ripped out 60 rows I had done back & forth because I was dropping so many stitches and creating YO's on the purl rows. Doing it in the round has been a bit better, but I've dropped stitches again and I'm really not having any fun and it's not calming to me as knitting usually is. I keep splitting the yarn, can't see it, etc. ARGH!
So, my present collection of projects in progress is about to dissapear. As I am going to be spening Labor Day at a secluded lake house I can't think of anything better to do than gather supplies to start a new project! For some reason I have this voice in my head telling me to make a Cable Scarf...and it is a forcefull voice!
Is this a dumb idea for a new knitter? How hard (honestly) is this endevor going to be? I really have the burning desire to try it! Does anyone have any cool basic Cable-Scarf patterns? Resources?
