Then the second project - just a basic scarf in a rib stitch - Malabrigo Hummingbird- this project was a surprise gift for a friend.

Knitted Mystery Has Been Solved!

It is a silly pink elephant balloon animal, here it is all twisted together. Since I had no grey yarn in my stash, I decided to make it pink. If you are old enough you will know all about pink elephants.

Knitted Mystery

Hope all is well with everyone. This is a photo of something I knitted and is so strange, just wondering if any members here want to take a guess at what it may be.

I will post a picture of the object in a few days.

Has anyone tried this pattern?
Would like to try it, but only really a beginner lace knitter.
Also wondering if it is possible to knit this without using circular needles?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

Help

I have some Madelinetosh and some Jamieson and Smith Shetland, both lace weight, that I want to use to make a shawl. The Madelinetosh is a reddish burgundy colour and when I used it before, the colour came out and ruined a bedspread when I blocked it. I certainly don't want it to run into the grey Shetland wool. Is there something I can do to set the colour before washing it?

Moving, questions, and yarn giveaway

Hi. It's been a while since I have posted anything. Knitting has not been my priority. I just finished my orthotic and prosthetic technician training at school (in Minnesota) and have a job lined up in Syracuse, New York. I was wondering if anyone on this site lives in Syracuse, New York? And if anyone has leads on places to live? I have begun to look for places to live on craigslist.

First day of Spring

Hi, everybody. It's the first day of Spring and I hope you all have a great one. I had planned to have the latest pair of socks done yesterday but will settle for today or, at the latest, tomorrow.
