The owner of a local yarn store was interested in a few of my designs and asked me knit a model for her store; here's the result. The fabric is created using three strands at once and knits up quickly using size 19 needles. Light-weight and chunky, I was able to knock this out in about 6 hours. The pattern is attached.
so i too just started to knit socks this summer, after working on an ethnic multi-colored legging project for a while.
I'm not a newbie, but I thought dye lots were a thing of the past. When I realized I hadn't purchased enough yarn for the socks I'm knitting, I went to a store and bought some yarn. Waaaaaaayyyy too light. Wrong dye lot. Having driven almost fifty miles in total, I finally found a ball of the proper dye lot.
I want to give a big thanks to all the men on here who give me positive feedback on my knitting. You are all true artists, and an inspiration to guys like me. Big hugs and a firm handshake!!!
I began this hat with Malabrigo Arroyo the one in natural color and then I
made one with Knit Picks Gloss in brown. Both hats were less than 50 grams of
yarn and knits up very quickly. The hat can be a plain hat, a slouch
or even a tam if you block it in that manner. Blocking is what makes this hat be the hat you wwant.
The wind tossed waves of the unkind world crash upon the craggy rock of my troubled mind. There are a hundred tasks to accomplish, a thousand people to please and a million dreams I must set aside to make it all happen.
At least, that's what most Mondays feel like.
I finally finished the socks I began at the Colorado retreat. I was interrupted with a few other projects, a trip to FL, and the first two weeks of the start of another school year. I think they turned out well and they feel very comfortable. The Yarn is Lang Jawoll. It's a superwash, so they will make their maiden voyage through the wash tomorrow. They should soften up nicely.
