So I got the bright idea a couple of months ago to try and do a colorwork project, after 4 failures, I think this one is finally going to have a good result.
I'm looking for some advice from the more experienced--in knitting that is...
I was tossing another skein of mohair lace yarn to Evan for a shawl he was doing for a friend...
This is my newest penannular brooch from www.ThorThorsHammer.com
It is a full 3" in diameter (quite large for a penannular brooch) and perfect for me and my ClapotiSaurus Rex!
During the Midwest Men's Knitting Retreat, I had the opportunity to meet Stephen West and see his very cool Herbivore that he was wearing.
I got my "Clapotis" from Knitty.com done! I doubled the width and quadrupled the length for a man-sized version. That lead the designer to knickname it the "CalpotiSaurus Rex"
No, it's not powered by windmills or solar panels, and it's not in the least "green"- "hybrid" as in a combo of millspun and my handspun; "scrap" in that I knit it with my small balls...maybe I should
OK OK. So I decided to adapt a knit picks two at once sock pattern into a felted boot pattern with DISASTROUS RESULTS THUS FAR.
I'm into these skinny lace scarves. They are great for using up single skeins in my stash and I'm learning a great deal on what fibers work for what projects.
I just added the top-down version of my kilt hose pattern at knitting-and.com. There's a link on Ravelry, too.
