I adapted this beaded hat from a pattern on this site. It was called a Devil's Peaked hat I think. This came out a bit large and floppy with all the beading.
I thought I'd never "go there", but I picked up "The Kitting Stitch Bible" and am having all kinds of fun with knitting lace...Photos to follow.
I seem to have a hard time finding a cheap, acrylic, watchman's hat when winter starts to set in. I lose my hats a lot, hence the preference for inexpensive acrylic hats.
Thanks to all of you who've been providing me with tips and words of encouragement.
This is my second pair of socks. I found a much more form fitting pattern to play around with.
My first pair of socks from the Red Cross Pattern on Ravelry. They are a bit large.
100% Red Lion Wool. I think I'll try something smaller out of a blend for my next pair.
Well, I've done it! I started a pair of socks.
I found a basic Man's sock pattern on Ravelry. It's a Red Cross pattern, and it looked pretty straightforward.
I'm working on my second cardigan. This time I closely read the instructions and paid more attention to the gauge.
I did it! My first cardigan. Lion's Brand Fisherman's wool on sale at Micheal's. I'm happy with it more or less.
I've been getting back into knitting in the past few months. It was prompted by a visit from one of my older sisters, who'd taught me to knit when I was 10.
