OK, I have tried three times to post this so I hope it goes through this time. I have never sent a photo of my knitting (for good reason) until now as I have always been in such awe of the work that you all do. However, my neighbors just had their first baby two weeks ago and during the summer months I used one of Louis' prayer shawl patterns to whip up a baby blanket.
I need your help. Annie's website sent an email out with three books about knitting lace all claiming to be "easy." One looked like it might be for beginners, but I am skeptical. So, can any of you recommend a title that is easy for us beginners. I hope to give some prayer shawls as Christmas presents and need to start now if I expect them to be under the tree by the 25th of December.
I need some help with this one. I started a project that said to slip the first and last stitch on each RS and to purl the first and last stitch on each WS. I slip the first stirch on the RS then follow that directions correctly for the row but come to the end stictch witch is to be slipped and I end up with a loop or unknitted stitch.
OK Guys and Gals I am a novice at this craft and could use some help. My first two attempts came out well after starting each about ten times. Then the next two when finished required washing and blocking. I thought things were going well and became a little too self satisfied until I saw the final products. Both look like something that ends up at the thrift store the day after Christmas.
