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!
Tonight I went to “Stitch and Pitch” at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
I was whining a couple of weeks ago at Monday Night Knit in San Francisco about how loose and loopy my double-knit bath mat was looking.
This is a rug I just finished for my sister. She picked the pattern and she picked the colors.
This is my first double knitting swatch. It’s done with some Lion Brand cotton yarn that has turned out to be a little pillish. But I’ve found out that I sure do like double knitting.
I can hardly believe it’s done. It’s my first F.O. in the round. What an experience.
One of the pleasures of the Portuguese method is that of “playing” the yarn. The yarn is stretched taut from the knitter’s neck to the needle.
It’s my first Man-Made Rug. It’s made of all-jute gardening twine from India. Each ball of 208 ft. cost me $1.49 at my local hardware store so it was a very inexpensive project.
I have this fantasy of belonging to a men’s rug-making collective called “Man-Made Rugs: rugs for men, by men” or maybe just “Man-Made Rugs”.
