I had fun knitting this top down raglan. No charts or pre-planning...just "composed" as I knit. The yarn is KnitPicks "Chroma" that I bought last year during their half price blow-out sale. The raglan yoke and body took three days to knit, each sleeve took one day....five days of fun!
Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year! More Love, Light, Peace, Joy than in any other year before!
I was giving this yarn by a dear friend of mine on this site, Lou Chicquette. It is a beautiful, supple blend of 42% wool, 35% acrylic, and 23% Viscose. The yarn is by Berroco and is buttery soft that makes it a very pleasant yarn to knit.
Hey all! Got a late start but back int the knitting game for the winter. Having lived in Dallas for a couple years 80 degree weather in December somehow seemed inappropriate for knitting. Now that I'm back in the New England area I'm enjoying my tea and knitting meditation time. Currently working a cable cowl neck.
I haven't investigated this site too much but what I did find looks
promising. Check it out if you get a chance. It is apparently free as are all
the back issues.
I just finished my first sweater in time for the holidays.

some alterations on the pattern section, changed the purl to seed stitch and lowered the pattern section to match the arm pattern and fall below instead of right on the nipples
To all my dear friends and fellow MWKers -
May you all have many Blessings through this Holiday Season and the coming New Year. Whether you celebrate the Solstice [like me], Christmas, Hanukkah [which was early this year], Kwanzaa, New Year, Lunar New Year or whichever and whatever your heart desires - or even not at all - I wish you Peace and Happiness in the time ahead.
I'm starting my first double-knit lace project. The pattern is by a young New York City lad by the ravetar of Aptenoknits. It's available free on Ravelry until March. I'd never considered lace before, having gotten trapped in a double-knitting energy vortex years ago in my reckless knitting youth. Trapped in the vortex as I am, lace always seemed inaccessible and remote.
