Sometime early this year, I found a bag with three large balls of yarn at a second hand shop. This was most unusual -- normally, there are only odd balls left over from a project. But this was an entire kit, complete with instructions, and about 6" of it started, with the cable needle still in the stitches. I conjured up all sorts of scenarios of what happened and how this ended up at the store.
The new Love of Knitting Holiday issue has my Making Waves hat and scarf set in it. Check out the image and description from their website, http://www.loveofknitting.com/articles/Making_Waves_Hat_and_Scarf or see attached file.
Yesterday was cold and damp in St. Louis. Wife out of town visiting the new grandson this past week so I spent the day at the yarn shop knitting in the company of friends. I got a lot done on Bennett's ribbed baby jacket. Came home had supper and complete the jacket at 9:00 pm and went to put it together and had trouble. Found a mistake and had to rip out three hours of work.
A good friend left me her Vogue Knitting books. The oldest dates back to 1947. Just look at this
There is the Vogue Knitting LIVE show in NYC from 17 - 20 January 2013 are any men attending??
ive been having sleep issues so i talked to medical at work and they suggested i take up a calming hobby to help mellow me out. (i guess ive been wound a little to tight since my deployment) but any who yea calming hobby it was suggested that i try knitting which made me laugh because i had already been looking in to taking up knitting as a hobby.
Had a most frustrating evening last night. I finally made it to the toe of the sock I've been struggling to finish, trying it on to check the fit.
Then, taking it off, the cast on edge snapped.
Not figuring out any way to repair it, I frogged almost 2 1/2 months of intermittent knitting; washed the resulting skein, and plan to rewind it so as to start all over again.
I've been working on a project all day today. What helps sick with an awful head cold. I think I did 5 rows at frog a row
Always on the lookout for interesting fibers I stopped in a yarn store near work on the way home and was looking for something different. Here is my find - Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Woodland 65% wool and 35% nettle.
I am knitting Spiraling Square Socks by Jenny Blackburn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiralling-square-socks) and am a bit stumped on the heel set up. The directions say:
K7, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing, P34
(Note: Knitting 7 before turning and purling 34 lines it up for the top of foot pattern later.)
