Just found out that one of my favourite knitting books (published in the 80s) is available to read for free online! It's very difficult to get hold of - I am lucky to have my grandmother's copy. The book, written by Vibeke Lind, was translated into English as "Knitting in the Nordic Tradition" but I guess those copies are just as difficult to find.
I created a new cast on for ribbing yesterday and wanted to let everyone know. if you want me to show you how to do the new caston pm me and i will show you
Are there ANY other male knitters besides myself in Little Rock, AR????
Has anyone taken the Craft Yarn Council's instructors certification test? I am just wondering because I have to take the test. Michael's has approached me about teaching Knitting for them and I am just wondering if anyone else has taken the class.
Thanks for any help.
Hello everyone. Now I want to pick the brains of all you wonderful knitters.
Hi guys! I came across this video last night and I'm pretty intrigued. Jeny (who came up with Jeny's Suprisingly Stretchy Bind Off) has made a cowl that when double and buttoned goes from being a straight tube to a moebius. And depending on how it is buttoned more twist is added, making it more snug and therefore warmer to wear.
The new sweater I am making that I bought form Staci at VeryPink.com. It feels like butter; so soft and firm enough to hold up the collar with only a small additive. I have just gotten to the part where the sleeves have been slipped off and the torso of the sweater. Now the increasing is finished and I will make it as long as I like, about 27" I think. Then the arms and last the zipper.
just had such a problem with a pattern they totally gave it up? I have been trying to start a scarf for my partner...and I am not joking, have ripped it out 20 times. The pattern is not hard, but for some reason, I lose track of rows, I lose track of stitches, I knit the same row twice.
So it's like this, guys. A friend asked me to knit something for an elderly relative in assisted living, so I knitted her a big cowl, which led to me to puttering around with some stash yarn and big needles. Well, after a few martinis, some bulky cowls appeared and seemed to catch the eye of some female friends.
