In My Absence

We've been as busy as this little bee...

Things that I learned by choosing a freaking lace wedding shawl as my second major project:

1. Lace work is not bad on a huge circular needle.

2. Don’t show anyone your lace until you have blocked it. They will think you didn’t ball-roll a skein correctly or you are knitting a handbag. It looks like crap until blocked.

3. Repeats can be nasty if you don’t understand just how many the author really wants you to do.

finally something got finished

This is Quinton's Kelp Grove Scarf, I love the pattern and it's an easy fun lace project. I was originally going to do it some yellow linen I had but from no where this hand painted merino popped up. I have no idea where it came from but it was perfect for this pattern. Thanks Quinton for sharing it.

Even Decrease

I know how to do an even decrease accross a row. But the insturction says " K1, p1, k1, p39, dec 4 sts evenly, k1, p1, k1-41 sts."

What are they trying to say when it falls in the middle of the instruction like that?

HELP!!!! Moss stitch chaos

I'm knitting a cardigan with a button band edge in moss/ seed stitch. I noticed that I'd done a wrong knit or purl a few rows back and thought I'd just unravel back and redo with a crochet hook....but fixing it doesn't seem to be working and I've got a very sloppy looking bit which looks worse than the original mistake.

7 x 7 Throw

I had a bunch of worsted weight acrylic yarn that I wanted to use up so I double stranded the yarn and used a larger needle size. This is just a 7 x 7 rib throw. The only thing I would do differently if I was knitting again would be to add an additional 7 stitches in garter on the other side. I didn't think about it and one side is stockinette and of course it wanted to curl.
