Mosaic Knitting

Does anyone know anything about mosaic knitting? In particular, I'm curious as to what the WS looks like.

First Craft show

Getting excited about being in my first craft show this Monday, December 13th from 6pm to 9pm at Mugshots Coffee House.  Planning on selling hats and scarves, so I have been knitting feverishly the past two weeks.  Madame de Farge would be proud of me.

Haven't done this before, so I am working on my detachment skills so I can just accept whatever the end result is.

Penitent Knitters

Penitent Knitters is a new ongoing knitting circle meeting every Sunday at 2pm. It is open to all knitters at all levels.Join the group for relaxing and creative time.

I'm using this yarn in a scarf.....I'll try to post a picture when it actually looks more like a scarf than a hotpad.  Anyway....

49% Wool, 59% Rayon...Acts a lot like cotton when you're knitting it.  Not a lot of stretch in the yarn itself, although the pattern stitch I'm using (a waffle stitch) makes a really elastic fabric.  My scarf is 6" wide and I got about 7.5" in length from one skein (50g, 100 yards), so the waffle stitch uses a lot of yarn!  I had to go back and buy more.

I'm using size 7 needles, but I should probably be knitting the scarf on 9's so it would have a little more drape...7's would be about right for straight stockinette, I think.

quick inventory (with pics)

I still haven't photographed my first scarf project, but chances are I'll be wearing it if I ever meet you in the non-cyberworld.

Of course, I'm late to get to the next SF knitting night, so I'm just going to slam up some images of recent completions.

I was in such a hurry to start the mittenettes in the Weblinks section that I didn't notice I bought the mittenette and little friendwrong size dpn's at ImagiKnits.

 No, Virginia, 7mm is not US size 7. Read labels more carefully.

All she wants to do is knit, knit knit.

In the past three days, I've knitted two scarves and one mittenette. I'll probably have the other mittenette finished by tomorrow night. I must say the winter weather hasn't been as unpleasant because of of this new form of crack I've found.

On Friday, hmalbert and I crossed paths directly in front of Imagiknit's door. It was such a surreal moment, like a lucid dream. I wasn't ready for the dream to end so I joined him and a friend for an afternoon of pedagogy and leftovers.

Saturday, I met a cool guy at Cafe Flore while knitting. He also knits, although he was making cards that day, and speaks Náhuatl. He had great energy! Lots of love...
