Here is my latest project and also my last for winter 2006. It has been 37 deg C (close enough to 100 deg F) for the last two days in this part of OZ so knitting will now take a back seat while I get on with some sewing along with more house renovations.
Has anyone used Anna Zilboorg's "Magnificent Mittens"? There is a step in her process which is thoroughly trouncing me. It is the method of increases used in shaping the fingertip, namely, "pick up and knit x stitches". It's not a technique limited to her designs, I'm sure, so if anyone has any ideas... help. I'm stuck.
I am making this sweater, I think already have the answer to my question, but I'll ask you guys just to be sure.
My directions I am following are obviously for an experienced knitter and as this is my first real knitting project so I got lost a few times. I finally finished the body and I am now up to the arms...which the directions convieniently say, "knit untill you reach the desired legnth." So, unless someone invents a device where I can reach inside the mothers womb then I have a bit of a problem. What is a correct proportion, if such a proportion exists, for an arm length in relation to the body?
Hello All ...
So, I should have known that the hat would continue causing me drama even after it's done ... :)
I think (really hope is more accurate) that the following links will bring you to the picture that I posted on my blogger blog ...
Always remember the Wizzards First Rule and you will never go wrong!
I noticed last night it took several attempt to get files attched to my posts; that may have been due to the fact I was working on a dial-up workstation. Anyone else having problems?
The other wierd thing is the new image (without a title so impossible to get to) shown as being posted by me at a time I know I didn't even attempt it.
Did I ever mention I am severely afflicted with startitis? though I do usually, eventually finish most projects. [except for that birth-gift quilt I started for the nephew that turned 29 last month...]
anyway - this is from the 2nd book of Modern Lace Knitting; since I am using my usual laceweight on way bigger then normal needles (In this case US #6) I'll get away with doing the smallest variation and still have it come out a good sized shawl.
the baby picture of little ROE are out at my picture page.
There 5 sections to this pattern - the picture was taken 3 rows into the second section.
