Just finished an Aran - something I don't knit very often. It was frustrating at times because of all the knitting and purling and keeping track of each pattern.
So I'm trying to copy as much as I can the pattern of a skull cap type hat I got in Nepal back in the early 90s.
My New DPNs arrived today! I picked them up on ebay (brand new) They're 8" and every size from 1-13, bamboo. Tell me that's not cool! And the best part, they cost me $22.59 (+S/H) for all of them!
it is a beautiful pattern i saw on Knitty Griitty today http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4920958,00.html
Here I am almost done with part one, be careful the snakes will bite, and so will I lol!
Hey all you Portland knitters!
One of the things I did last weekend while desporting myself with 88 women at the Seven Hills Inn and Resort in Lenox, Mass was attend a workshop in lace knitting taught by Pam Allen.
OK, I found the perfect thing for me to knit for my friend. You can see one at www.queerjoe.com/patterns/willie_warmer Also on www.yoopercrafts.com I have become an expert at toe up socks.
I was at WEBS last friday - becuse hey, it was only an hour's detour from where I was going anyway. Too close to pass up a visit.
And I bought a swift. (among other things)
the last image is almost as close to the actual colors....and sorry that the pics are so big
