After three months and 150+ hours, I finally finished a qiviut lace scarf for my mother. The scarf was knit with Moco Yarns natural fingerweight qiviut blend (45% Qiviut/45% Merino/10% Silk). I used a #1 needle with a gauge of 9 stitches/12 rows to an inch. I was really captivated with the project...the yarn was so soft and downy....I often knit an hour or more a day on the scarf.
I'm just clicking along and I now have each side panel complete. Thanks to all for your nice comments!
I am looking for a pattern for a Celtic knot to put on the sides of another Scrabble bag that I am knitting in the round. The bag is 40 stitches wide using an acrylic/wool blend yarn that is 6 sts/inch on US5 (3.75mm) circular needles. It would like the knot to be about 2" x 2". I have looked online and in a book, but can't really find one I like that is self-contained.
Hello all. Since January, my main focus has been on my prosthetic technology classes which are going very well. Each day I am learning so much. Knitting is not my main focus these days. At the end of my long day, I sit and knit a couple of rows for about 5 minutes before falling asleep. I have been making very simple cotton washcloths (using garter stitch, seed stitch, and linen stitch).
Just putting this out there.
Any knitters near Berkeley Springs? I've started a Wednesday knit group at Earth Dog.
Has anyone ever made the sweater called Ridgeway Lite from Cabin Fever? It's seamless and knit in the round. I found a blog that featured it and I like the look of it. But, before I spend the money on it, I was wondering if any of you guys have made it? Thanks.
Sunday I'm heading out to Minneapolis for some work related training. Naturally I want to check out the Local Yarn Stores and a possible knit night. According to Ravelry there is a Men's Knit Night that meets on Wednesdays. Anyone out there who goes to that? I'm going to be there until Thursday, so I'm thinking of knitting related excursions either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.
Is anyone interested in having a men-only swap? Not jock straps, but anything depending on a questionnaire that we fill out. Maybe with a $10 or $20 limit.
I’m involved in two swaps on knittingparadise.com and thought it might be interesting to swap with other men.
Basically, depending on questions that the swapper answers, the partner picks a bunch of items to swap with them.
I finished (almost) a wrap and hat for my grandmother. She says shawls are for old ladies so I have to call it a wrap...which it is so it's all good. I'm in love w/ this yarn Filatura Lanarota Alpaca Cloud. I bought a bag of ten for $30 at Smiley's Manhattan Sale.
