It’s no surprise that practicing one craft can lead to an interest and desire to learn another, especially with fiber related crafts. Many people who started with crochet have learned to knit and many who started with knitting have learned to crochet. There’s a lot of crossover between the two.
the new look for bikers?
This is a post on my blog, I thought I would post here.
I am trying to knit the Cable Guy sweater from Son of Stitch N Bitch, and I have a really big question.
I've been internet shopping lately (the only way to get good knitting supplies for us in NZ) and I came across this wonderful yarn holder; it's great for those who knit both socks at the same time (which I do). The promo advertisement says it can also be used for fair isle knitting but that would be useful only if there were only two colours used in the project.
I've been away from knitting for a while, thanks to life getting too hectic (excuses, I know). Anyway, back at it and doing a simple scarf just to get the feel back. I found some great merino/cotton yarn I bought a long time ago, and decided this would be great yarn to get my hands back into it. So far, it's going great!
Ola' from San Miguel de Allende. This place is incredible, beautiful, charming and magical.
I came across this on line and thought I'd share. They're symmetrical increases which would be great for knitting a sleeve in the round.
I finished, blocked, and gifted the half-herringbone fagot stitch scarf for my friend Miss A. She is the one who gave me needles and taught me the knit stitch. Laid out, it is right about 7' long. It is a simple yet attractive pattern. The yarn is Encore Colorspun by Plymouth Yarn, worsted weight, on size 10 (bamboo) needles.
I've been on the waiting list on amazon.com for Alice Starmore's newest book to be released. It was late to become available but finally I got my copy this past week. I hold her in high esteem for her beautiful Fair Isle knitting patterns.
