What to say? A most memorable time...as always.
I saw that Johnathan had on footies for sock, which I liked a lot. Here's my question and perhaps Johnathan can chime in here too. If I make them a bit longer than the ankle, it will look okay but I like the kind that stops just as it overflows the shoes. I was thinking about making an i-cord bind off so that they won't work their way down into my shoe while I am on a hike.
Good Evening All,
Well I am almost complete and on schedule. I hope to complete the garment this weekend. All that is left to do is the V-Neck finish and weave in all the ends. I really like Heidi's pattern. Comes together fast. Looks great and I really like my I Cord Bind-Off to her original pattern. Here is a pic taken a few minutes ago before dinner.
My daughter asked me to knit a couple of prayer shawls for a mother and daughter who were having some significant health issues. Nothing too complicated, but the shawl will be a mental and spiritual hug for a couple of women who need need support while going through some tough times.
Well, I'm officially the newest instructor at the loopy ewe!!! Ill be teaching two classes- one on sock design and one on beginning lace. Do you fellas have any suggestions for my beginning lace class? What does a new lace knitter need to know?
I started this hat at home then took it to Colorado to finish. Once there,
I realized it was a bit more intricate than I could focus on, so I brought it
home and finished here. It's made with acrylic. I am going to make another
one with good wool because I think the uniformity of the stitching may be
better with animal fiber.
Does anyone know of any cool KALs that have just started on ravelry or are
about to start?
I just finished the TDF and really enjoyed the community environment and am thinking I would like to try my first KAL.
Can anyone recommend any?
There are moments in a knitters life that are without match. Usually they are relatively fleeting- a finished project, a mother's joy at her new shawl or the admiration of others as they see skilled fingers producing intricate lace. I'd hardly imagined that it was possible to string a series of these moments together to create something akin to Nirvana, but this past weekend proved me wrong.
