Again on the couch, wine cozy to the right. I want to get some rows put down so I will be brief at the keys. Posted are pics of the WIP's, and here is a link to some of my finished projects. (sweety is nice enough to post them for me)
feedback is nice.
The Wine Cozy is being made out of Encore Colorspun Worsted (colorway 7129) using #6 needles.
The socks are being knit up out of Steinbach Wolle on metal #3s' (my wooden ones broke, a lot)
Knitting in the Bronx
So I am not actually a guy who knits, but a girl who knits, so I hope I am not intruding. I am hoping you all may be able to help me out with an (apparently!) unusual request: my mother's boyfriend hunts, and I would like to make him a nice, warm, sturdy hat. I came across some "safety vest orange" yarn which inspired this idea. I have been looking for a felted men's hat pattern, and have not been finding much of anything so far! Could any of you help me out? I believe the yarn is bulky weight, and this will be my first attempt at felting so I would like something to help me out with the pre-felting dimensions. Also, a style with ear flaps would be a bonus. Thanks!
Do any of my guys have a pattern for a top down raglan sleeve cardigan? I have received hints that I should try that for my next attempt - so that it can be tried on as it's being worked - any help is always appreciated!
Things are busy and I'm in major knitting mode right now - I can't hardly wait for work to end so I can get home and get to stitching!
Thanks for pattern suggestions guys!
I was in Spokane WA yesterday and stopped in at Paradise Fiders. Whoa. Knowledgeable, friendly staff and stock like you wouldn't believe. Yarn, needles, books, vidoes, DVDs. Definately a "no frills" setting though. 99% of their business is done online, so if you stop by, you're in a warehouse and in order to checkout, you take your purchases over to Travis who sits behind a computer monitor responding to internet orders. I know someone on MWK has already highly recommended this business for online orders, I'd just like to add they're also a nice bunch to stop by and see in person.
I'm starting to get myself organised to knit River Run Pullover designed by Ron Schweitzer from the book Knitter's Stash. It is a Fair Isle using all nine natural, undyed shades of Shetland wool, and the colours range from white to brownish-black.
I'm really looking forward to this challenge as the last Fairisle I knitted was too small by the time I'd finished it, so I unpicked it and did it again in a larger size. It is still too tight around my somewhat fleshy middle, and will be given away to an anorexic when it is finished. Wish me luck ;-)
