Want to look at the whole Top Down approach to knitting - so many of you have mentioned Elizabeth Zimmermann.
It's come to that. I've been digging through my box of old sweaters and socks to repair. I'm turning old holey sweaters into socks so I can work outside with toasty feet.
Anyone here knit on a loom (I think that is what it is called). My daughter is 5 (almost 6) and wants to knit with me. I have tried to help her, but she just can't hold the needles and yarn etc.
The brown sweater was knit with Jamieson and Smith Sheland DK (discontinued) on 4mm needles. I have no idea why I tacked down the neckband with white wool!!
My last blog entry was on my Birthday...almost 9 months ago. Shame on me.
Still here, alive and wellish.
Well I did my first Bazaar on Thursday and it was a minor success. I did not have many items due to the designing deadline.
Today I got round to photographing my latest Daybreak by Stephen West. It's a scarf for Rachel, the daughter of a friend, and she told me her favourite colours were pink and orange.
Okay, I am now addicted to making dishcloths. I am getting a sense of accomplishment as they are quick to finish. I am really enjoying working with cotton.
