OK, I thought that this was going to be easy. My friend Jimmie started to make the Nano cover by Debbie Bliss for his daughter & had problems. I thought, 'Oh plesase, somethning so small can't be that hard.' Wrong.
What is it about bobbles? Why are they so hard? Or what am i/we missing?
Any tips will be very welcome. I've googled & got a few sites but they don't seem to match Debbies instructions.
This was knitted in the round on #4 DPNs using Millefili Fine, the first "pricey" yarn I've ever bought, a souvenir of my June excursion to New York and my first visit to Knit New York, a great knit café with an awesome staff.
...is also a hot seat, at least in this kind of weather. Into the 90s again today, with high humidity and little breeze. Today was the day I promised to judge knit and crochet pieces for the county fair, so off to the fairgrounds at 9 am. Mary, the supervisor, was waiting for me and knew who I was even though we'd never met in person before. Easy, I was the only male judge in her division, Home Economics.
We started with the crochet work, and the only hard judgement call I had was to rank six crocheted afghans. Managed that and wrote suggestions to all the creators. Plowed ahead through several smaller categories, then had to pick best in show for crochet. It went to the best afghan, which was really a nice piece of work.
Hey everyone, I am thrilled to announce that I just finished my very first sacrf! ...I think it turned out pretty well for having basically taught myself.
Needles to say, I have begun yet another scarf (I'll do one more before branching out into something more complicated, any suggestions?). I found that I didn't know what to do with my hands for the three days between projects. I am truly obssesed!
A word of thanks to everyone for thier kind advice, I am finding this site to be a priceless resource!
...Which brings me to my next question....
Good evening, men. I've been knitting for some time, but have just recently discovered the joys of knitting socks!
Of course, I expect to be motivated to push myself into other areas of knitting once I hear and see what you all are doing!
When's the next chat, by the way?
