A knitting retreat could be fun to contemplate ... admittedly it is a long way from most but ... it has interest on it's side... Ancient Greece, 18 km beach, wonderful Turkish cuisine... and cheap...
Just took pics of my first handspun yarn project, which is coincidentally my first pair of mittens.
Finished this several days ago. The final size, 48cmx48cm.
Sonic and I mow the lawn together. She loves it. She would be wearing her little sweater i knit her but she ate it the second she had it on.
Just for the hell of it heres all my projects thrown into one basket.
I'm wondering if anyone has used the Noro wool Yarn from Japan. I am interested in trying it. Is it scratchy or is it similar to merino wool?. Thanks for your help.
I finally finished the Elizabeth Zimmerman "Knitted Garter Stitch Blanket" for my new livingroom. Just over 6 pounds of Lion Brand "Fisherman's Wool" with 2 strands held together on size 15s.
All I can say on this one, is WOW!
