Because of Bob’s posts and Ron’s subsequent mention of Anna Zilboorg I was inspired to borrow “Fancy Feet, traditional knitting patterns of Turkey” by Anna Zilboorg from the San Francisco Publ
This is my first dk hat. The pattern is called “doubleknitski, one warm-a** double knit ski cap” by Alison Hansel from The Blue Blog. It’s free on the web.
OK, I’m an ignorant novice. So with that said, I do not understand the whole varying-and-interchangeable-lengths-of-cables-for-circular-needles thing.
Every month or so I get a list of recommended titles from my local library. One of the titles this time is “Yarn”. Here's the blurb.
It takes me about 3 or 4 times to knit something before I get it the way I want. I am now into my third version of this slipper. So I think I might be getting close.
I’m working on a double-knit pair of fingerless gloves. Like most of my projects it’s a learn-as-you-go affair.
Well I put the last stitch into it today. It’s been through the washer and dryer already and it’s now on the bathroom floor. I’m glad it’s done. I’m really ready to move on.
So this is my first glove. It’s a little rough around the edges and all through the middle as well. I didn’t bind it off. I just used a life line to tie it off.
I tried those stick-on pads for the bottoms of chair legs so they don’t scratch the floor and they kept coming off. So I crocheted some shoes(?) and they’re working brilliantly.
Went down to the SF Main today to get my knit together at “Knit Happens!” They have it every third Saturday of the month and it was the third Saturday of August, 2009 at Knit Happens!
