This is a VERY easy, VERY quick knit. Highly recommended if you need/want to make something and are out of time!
I knit this cap as part of my halloween costume this year, but boy does it feel good of a night in this draughty old house! I'd wondered for years how those things were made; you see them sometimes in 15/16th century portraits.
i am making a ribbed cuff for the sleeve that i want to be snug, stretchy and then want the sleeve to puff out some after the ribbing.
My recent project. I love it. Vest in Baby Alpaca DK. I used a basic pattern from Phildar and resized it and added a houndstooth pattern to the front piece.
The other day, a co-worker of mine gave me some sock yarn "Kroy Sock Yarn" to make him a Beanie. I started simple Beanie with a 2x2 rib brim about 15 rows, and the remainder stockinette.
This blows my mind... I totalyl had a DUH! moment when I seen this...
(runs out to find some hard rubber balls and roving)
This isn't knitting, but it is fibre arts...I have to say that I'm satisfied with divine justice: puppy dog chewed up a fuzzy vintage mohair blanket: puppy dog should fix it...and she did!
Cat Bordhi has been doing week-long retreats for several years wherein she teaches about self-publishing in the knitting industry.
I was just reading an article on Yahoo about the best places to work. One noted was Adobe where they noted that they have over 80 associations including a "Knitting Club".
