Spun my first hank of yarn!

So I couldn’t wait on the mail anymore (it's taking FOREVER!!!) and I had 200g of fiber sitting there just DYING to be spun.

Thinking about Spinning....

Ok so I saw Bucks post about buying a Kromski Symphony wheel and that kind of got me curious onto spinning.

Finished my first sweater and pictures!!!

Well, here it is, in all its glory, it is still blocking right now but I couldnt wait to post pictures!! Knitting a sweater wasn't as bad as I thought, just took a long time!

Seaming?

Does anybody know a good stitch for seaming up a sweater? I know the standard is to use the “mattress stitch” or the invisible one…whatever it’s called.

Blocking HELP!

Ok so I finished the torso part of my sweater, and went to block it, well, when I pulled it out of the water and squeezed all the water out the sweater is now BIGGER than what it needs to be!

Confessions of a Knitaholic

I trusted the pattern....that was silly.

So, I got to the point on the front part of my sweater where I have to bind off 11 of the center stitches for the neck...and now, im stuck.
