I'm doing "housekeeping" on my MMarioKKnits yahoo group -
going through and catching up on my directory listing of patterns
correcting and updating patterns
So far I have managed to work my way through 3/4rths of one page out of 6.5 pages of listing. And have some patterns to add to the list that aren't on there yet!
Then I actually have to do the work...
*phew* I hate paperwork!
My sister-in-law steered me to this hat on ravelry. The pattern is free. It is definitely the warmest hat I have ever worn - it covers the whole ear and hugs your head. Easy and fast knit. I used Paton's Classic Wool.
Ok since I have the picture up already on ravelry I'm just adding the public post so you can see the red and grey safely scarf completed. It was made using Malabrigos Rastita such a lovely and light weight yarn and the color contracts on these two yarns was great. Happy Monday
Hey guys. I am working on a khata for spiritual director of mine. I bought some 100% silk for it. I have had trouble from winding up to the knitting. Has anyone else on here had issues with it. Its not a tight spin on the yarn. Its very loose, however its only white I could find.
Here is a scarf I completed during the holidays. Wanted to share for your viewing pleasure. Love it so much I'm working on a second one.
There was some discussion earlier about provisional cast on, which serves a function very similar to grafting. And now there is a FREE, online Craftsy class with Anne Hanson, Ins & Outs of Grafting, to learn to seamlessly join pieces of any knit fabric for an elegant final result! This is only until April 12, so go and get it quick!
You may already know this, but there is interesting information concerning a new "bug" on the Internet that perhaps we should all investigate. Web developers and are taking it seriously, as are many others. If you just go to Google and search for "Heartbeat Security Bug" you will find it all over the Internet. You may have already seen it on the news.
Another hat as I am working on a scarf. I got the inspiration and there will be a cowl from this pattern as well.
I have been very productive in the past few months. Here is one of my latest hats at less than 50 grams of yarn.
