Well, it's been a little while since I've posted anything on here, things always seem to get busy around February I guess. So this is my first commissioned project: a nice hooded scarf.
It’s my first Man-Made Rug. It’s made of all-jute gardening twine from India. Each ball of 208 ft. cost me $1.49 at my local hardware store so it was a very inexpensive project.
Decision making is not my forte'. I am a doer and procrastinator. Yet somehow I managed to get through spinning this cobweb lace a bit ago. Another first for me is swatching.
It has been a time since I have knitted my first project. I think it turned out very well considering a few things. The entire project was knit from the back stitch.
After a week end of workshop with knitted technique in Brussels...
I have made a flower...
...representing knitting!!! (of course)
36 skeins of mixed media (different types of yarn...wool and other stuff) at Central Yarn Shop in Portland, Maine
The boxers KAL had me thinking of vintage swimwear finely knitted in wool...
This past week I completed Heather's Scarf. It turned out quite nice.
Dudes of Knitting:
I received a set of ebony size 1 dpns for Chirstmas and was very excited, but mostly use 0s for socks so I went and bought a set of those - very pricey! Beautiful, but expensive.
