Hi, Has anyone here read the book "Teach Yourself VISUALLY Sock Knitting" by Laura Chau ? Kelley Petkun from Knitpicks reviewed this book on Youtube and seems to think that it is a great book!!
I am finding that I just do not enjoy knitting with straight needles unless they are wood. Does anyone else have this problem?
Off the needles. I made a washcloth for a friend who is in to Peanuts cartoons. Found this Woodstock washcloth pattern and did it up in about 3 days (about an hour a day knitting).
Finally got the picture off the camera to post.
The chemo cap is for one of the women in my company's Montreal, Quebec office.
So I have been playing around with the camera and website production in between knitting, finishing taxes and whatever else I can figure out to do to keep myself busy.
I just bought this pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/april-fools-socks-2
I made this sweater for my sister. I used Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight and 3.25 mm needles. The colour is Thistle and is much prettier than the pictures show.
I finally finished my son's socks. They are orange slipper socks with a short row heel. I debated about the heel for a long time, that is why it took so long to complete.
So, I find spinning rather interesting. However, I started wondering if was really practical. Can you get the a really good quality of yarn? Is it cost effective? Is it too time consuming.
