Just found out that one of my favourite knitting books (published in the 80s) is available to read for free online! It's very difficult to get hold of - I am lucky to have my grandmother's copy. The book, written by Vibeke Lind, was translated into English as "Knitting in the Nordic Tradition" but I guess those copies are just as difficult to find.
Hello everyone. Now I want to pick the brains of all you wonderful knitters.
Seattle Men Who Knit is alive and well in 2013!
Our first meetings after the 2011 Men's Knitting Retreat have grown, and we are now meeting 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Elliott Bay Cafe on Capitol Hill (10th Avenue between Pike and Pine, one block east of Broadway, in the back of Elliott Bay Booksellers) from 7-9 PM.
I block EVERYTHING! How severely depends on the desired texture and feel. I use a gravity feed iron. Cannot imagine life without it.
Happy New Year everyone!
Quick question for the MWK crew - which yarn meter have you found success with? There are oodles to chose from and each have reviews ranging from amazing to craptacular; so I am at a loss - but have LOTS of yarn I need to know the amount of before I begin a project and run out....again! Thanks all!
Hello everyone I just joined this site and I don't know anything about knitting. If I can get a little help please on on what tools to get and projects I guess? Feel free to ask me questions thank you very much l.
OK, me too!
I am part of a group offering support to people with Amniotic Banding Syndrome (which I also have). It means that we have either missing or little fingers or no hand at all.
Folks in that group are looking for people to make custom mittens and gloves for hands with different number and sizes of fingers.
I am looking for a knit stitch for a sweater that would be open, i.e. not tightly knit using a thicker yarn.
Maybe something like a rose stitch? Would large needles and garter stitch work? Granted that would be bit boring as stitches go! :-)
