I swear I'm not the world's slowest knitter, but I have neglected this project for a bit. It is finally done though, and keeping me warm amid all these winter storms! Next project is going to be a red cabled ipad case for my AIDS Walk etsy page. Be sure to check out my previous post regarding submitting any knitwear donations :)
All my best,
Only about 6 more rounds of pattern to go (8") and I'll be done with this bad boy.
Hey all! Got a late start but back int the knitting game for the winter. Having lived in Dallas for a couple years 80 degree weather in December somehow seemed inappropriate for knitting. Now that I'm back in the New England area I'm enjoying my tea and knitting meditation time. Currently working a cable cowl neck.
I have a question that maybe someone can help me with. I'm knitting a market bag in the round with 24" circulars. Starts off with a stockinette stitch base for support and the body is a simple (K2tog, YO) lace pattern. Everything looks great except for where the round joins between the last and first stitch. It looks like a very loose join, and ladder like instead of twisted.
Hope everyone is well....Haven't been doing much knitting lately except for making these iPad and Kindle cases for friends and buyers. I've been looking to get into some more alternative fun and original stuff. I want to make a men's tank top. I haven't found a pattern for just the shape. I wanted to do a diamond mesh lace.
Hey guys....I started knitting a swatch of a single motif in the lace pattern I chose (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mystic-forest). One row of the pattern says to yarn over at the end. If its meant to increase a stitch, how will it do this if there isn't a stitch left to knit after it. Specifically I'm talking about row 27.
So I've recently abandoned my Xmas gift project for my bf. Started an afghan for him, though we broke up tonight, so I won't be working on that or thinking of afghans for a bit. Knitting's gonna get me through this break up though. Gonna hit the yarn store today and see what I come up with...will you keep guys posted as to what's to come.
Anyone keen to any Dallas knitting groups? Knitting has always been a solitary activity, and when I knit around my bf, he complains that I'm not "in the moment" which I totally am, lol. Anyway, lemme know if anyone knows of any groups. Thanks!
Anyone else think that knitting women's apparel is more fun? lol. These past couple of days I've been looking through some of Vogue knitting's past issues and have been trying to think of all of my girl friends that I could gift garments to, haha.
