Rolling with the punches...

So I've recently abandoned my Xmas gift project for my bf. Started an afghan for him, though we broke up tonight, so I won't be working on that or thinking of afghans for a bit. Knitting's gonna get me through this break up though. Gonna hit the yarn store today and see what I come up with...will you keep guys posted as to what's to come.

Joining a new ball of yarn

As you all know, I've done a good number of projects since I first started knitting 15 months ago, some large, some small. I always run into the same problem. When it's time to add a new ball/skein of yarn (same color), I struggle with how to secure it. I have watched videos about the Russian method of weaving two pieces together, an invisible method of braiding, even spit splicing!

thoughts on turning a flat pattern into one that is knit in the round


I'm about to start a new sweater (Nancy Salcedo's Men's Lattice) and am wondering if it would translate into a pattern I could knit in the round.

Any thoughts?

Dallas Knitters?

Anyone keen to any Dallas knitting groups? Knitting has always been a solitary activity, and when I knit around my bf, he complains that I'm not "in the moment" which I totally am, lol. Anyway, lemme know if anyone knows of any groups. Thanks!

Hi. My name is Eric, nice to meet everybody! It doesn't look like there have been any new posts in quite a while, I hope this forum is still active.

I've been into fiber arts for quite a while, but I only recently decided to take up knitting. I also crochet, naalbind, knook, weave, and spin my own yarn.

Feeling like a Beginner

Hi all. Time flies. Two weeks until Christmas. I have been learning and practicing Barbara Walker's 2-color slip stitch "Mosaic" technique. My local yarn store had a fun small two sided bag project using Ms. Walker's technique. The sides were attached using the I-cord bind off. It could be a small bag (or a fancy pot holder). It was the prefect size to practice on.

SKYP sock

These were completed last week. I wanted to make a pair of socks for my mother, I had the yarn sitting here for a long time, asking to be knit into socks, but I needed to find the right pattern.
