There are two spinning groups in the city, one in the north and one in the south. But many women go to both of them. I always enjoy going to these, but can't always get away from work to get to them. They run from September to June. At the June meeting, it is tradition for us to do something different, and to go out somewhere.
I've deleted my post on the problem I was having with two patterns. Someone decided to elevate their ego by making me feel stupid. I have since ripped apart BOTH sweaters and am using the yarn to crochet potholders. I guess that teaches me NOT to ask for help on here.
I have a friend who is in Kansas and she and her husband have a small little herd of five alpacas. She says she has some of last and this year's sheering.
ok. rewrote the trey bracelet ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trey ) pattern so it makes some sense and doesn't leave things out. but i need a spot checker or two.
is there a style of knitting, whether on regular needles, or DPNs, or circs, that lets you avoid purling, by turning the needles somehow? maybe by using dpn's and sliding the stitches to the opposite end of your needle and turning your work, etc?
i'm thinking something where if the pattern says:
knit 5, purl 10, knit 5, slip 2 purlwise
you could instead just:
Hey people. Not posted anything in a long time, and wanted to say hi to all my fellow knitters here in the UK and accross the pond!!
hi all... looking for a pattern for a hybrid style of gloves... i saw 2 patterns on ravelry that are similar to my brain's vision (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...e-finger-mitts and http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...-winter-gloves) but still not quite... i'd like sort of a combo of those 2 - fingertipless thumb and full-size fingertipless index.
Just wanted to share a quick project I completed for a baby shower. I'm sure the mommy to be will love these. I used this great blue sky alpaca/silk yarn and some silky merino. I know it's not a yarn usually used for babies but it was so soft and lovely I just had to use it.
Here's something I've been working on. I have been spinning a lot lately, having received from a friend one fleece that she didn't want, and part of another from a local spinner. I've been having a lot of fun pulling out locks and spinning a very fine worsted yarn. Not sure yet what I will do with it, but there is still time!
