My beautiful niece, Jessica, turns four years old tomorrow and this afternoon was the birthday gathering.
Well, it's finished. I got some suggestions on how to finish it off with the flat top. Basically divided it into 10 sections of 9 needles each and decreased each section every other row.
when using double point needles do use a spare needle to knit with?
I subscribe to Interveave 'Knits' magazine and the latest issue continues a trend found in most knitting magazines of including little or nothing for men in the way of sweaters patterns, designs etc.
Here are two devices I found useful for stranded knitting. Neither is new but I thought I'd post about them for anyone who is considering this knitting technique.
So after a bit of practice with stranding, I cast on yarn for a hat and went at it.
Here is the orchid yarn starting to fill up the spool. I'm waiting for delivery of some Cheviot fleece from Pennsylvania so that I can spin the white yarn. I've already spun up some of the black.
I am starting to spin up the yarn for a sweater that will be my first attempt at steeking. I will use three colors: Orchid, White and Black.
Here are some of my WIP and some FOs, plus blocking the Slythering and a ThanksGiving Salutation!
