A while back, Joe-in-Wyoming recommended a shop in Casper that he frequents. Today, I went to that yarn shop he recommended. The Dancing Sheep Yarn and Fiber store is a very nice store.
This is a question I've had for a while, how man of you learn a certain technique just because you think you should know it?
Take two brownsheep lambspride worsted, and one aracana magellanes in green, do a checkerboard with a garter border, switching yarns each row and knit until the first skein runs out.
Here are a couple of pictures of my first ever completed project. It’s a two-color spiral rug crocheted from jute gardening twine, two strands per color. Half double crochet throughout.
I am heading home soon and didn't want to start a big project. I found the Baktus Scarf by Strikkelise on Ravelry and it seemed to fit the bill.
This is the sweater vest I finished recently. I'm very proud of it -- though of course as I was getting ready to photograph it last night, I noticed a pretty glaring (to me, anyway) error.
I made through my pattern problems and finally finished the Tiger Eye Lace Scarf. It's in Malabrigo sock with size 5 needles. It went amazingly fast but blocked a lot longer then it was supposed to.
Just wanted to share some pictures of the creature I just finished this Thanksgiving evening.
I am so happy that I wanted to share with you ...
I'm waiting this time till one years....
I go 4 days on holidaus in ALASACE (France) to by some decoration for X-mas...
