What could it be?

Hello gents. I am currently finishing up a project which I'll post more about in a few days. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the in-progress item which looks so weird that I had to share it. Any guesses on what it is I'm making?

Spinning something new

Quite some time ago I posted about how I had gotten interested in spinning fiber on a drop spindle. Since then I have acquired a few spindles, mostly Turkish, and have gotten in a fair amount of practice.

A different provisional cast on method

Hello Gents! I am currently working on a project that requires a provisional cast on (PCO). I haven't knit a lot of items that use a PCO, but when I have I've used the crochet chain method. This works pretty well and has the nice feature of a sturdy and easily unraveled PCO edge.

Tight and tidy cable edges

Hi guys, I was just on YouTube watching an instructional video series by Lucy Neatby about cabling. In part two of the series she shows how to neaten the left hand edge of a cable. This side of the cable is looser due to the way the yarn travels from knit to purl. She shows how you can remedy this by reverse-wrapping the first purl stitch after a series of knit stitches.
