Your Nemesis...

Would love to know the one project that has failed you repeatedly, the one pattern that has duped you and pissed you off to no end.

I started knitting hats back in November and here are a few of them. As you can see I like chunky weight yarn.

Practice scarf in progress

OK here it is, such that it is. I wish I hadn't started out with the inch of garter but it is a practice piece.

First hand-spun knit up!

Start & Finish: 25th January 2008
Yarn: My own hand-spun, "Bracken Ridge" from Ewe Give Me The Knits
Needles: 4.5 mm / 60 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: Simple 25 stitches garter stitch, inspired/copied from Brooklyntweed's Espresso Scarf
Notes: I'm using the navajo-ply at each end of the it's a bit chunkier there. I'm using three traditional deer-horn button commonly used in traditional Tracht here in (Bavaria) Germany. And yes, they are made from real horn and not the cheap-o plastic imitation...these ones cost about EUR 4 each.
