So glad to be a part of this community, it took me so long to write something, because I had no idea what to write. I've been knitting for 5 years and making slow progress, but having fun.
So, the other day I had a co-worker call me and ask me if I would be willing to use my spare time to knit baby hats for another hospitals nursery.
Right now im in Copenhagen on business and today I decided to take a walk around the city and see some sights. Among the numerous sex shops and street hookers.
I found this slipper pattern in The Knitting Man(ual) and enjoyed the process. I had to make adjustments along the way because my medium foot was not the designer's medium foot.
I knit this for my nephew, Chris, when I was in Mexico, but washed and blocked it here in Canada before giving it to him. I used Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Lerwick and 3.25mm needles.
Socks made from Noro
Well my town sure needs a LYS... Just went out to find some yarn for the next project. So bummed, of the 2 stores in town, one has a crappy selection and the other is closing on the 31st.
No, no, I didn't meet him on the street and slur his sense of style as he shouted obscenities as I smugly walked away (We've never met and I'm sure his sense of style is much better than my own).
I have find my next knitting project !!! I hope I'll have it done on time for the royal wedding...
Here's an amazing video of a Rachel John knitting 1000 strands of yarn into a small mattress. Amazing tribute to perseverance and a sense of dedication to a curious form of art. Enjoy.
