Hi all. Time flies. Two weeks until Christmas. I have been learning and practicing Barbara Walker's 2-color slip stitch "Mosaic" technique. My local yarn store had a fun small two sided bag project using Ms. Walker's technique. The sides were attached using the I-cord bind off. It could be a small bag (or a fancy pot holder). It was the prefect size to practice on.
I also made a green hat using a basic pattern by Lion Brand. The hat actually fit me because I took the time to make a gauge swatch and did a little measuring. Now I am ready for the cold, brittle winter air.
I just learned about the talented and gifted knit designer Jared Flood (Brooklyn Tweed). Reading his blog and looking at his various patterns is very informative and inspiring. I want to knit some of his designs someday.
Happy knitting to all. Onward we all go....Cullen
