I just looked in the chat room & was verbally abused by one of our members, this is not the kind of thing that I expect from our group.
I used a vintage 60s pattern for sizing and shaping of this "boat-neck" sweater, but added the ribbing and tri-color from a contemporary French pattern. It fits perfectly and is a Plymouth Encore wool blend. My only regret is not having used a "better" wool yarn for the project. Hope you like it.
Amazon.com introduced a new function this morning. It allows you to create your own personal store.
I've created one called "Scratch and Stitch" which features knitting books of interest to men. I've added a few that have been mentioned on MenWhoKnit.com as well as some that I've found useful.
Does anyone have the DVD by Knittinghelp.com? I am always searching for new ways to up-skill my knitting. We don't have any knitting classes here and the selection of knitting books is poor. I thought that this DVD might be useful. Any comments or suggestions for other DVD's?
PS...this is the hat, it's pretty cool and very easy! I love it!
Now, I know that I can probably find this online in 6.5 seconds, and I just might as soon as I am done posting this entry. However, the hat that I just finished instructs me to "single crochet" around the edge in a contrasting color...now I have the contrasting color, and UPS is bringing me a big box of knitting supplies (and crochet hooks) this afternoon...but can anyone tell me (or direct me towards an priceless resource that can tell me) how I might go about this "single crochet"? Clearly I am a crochet virgin! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!
I made a promise to my kids' grade 3 teacher that I would spin and knit her something if she gave me some fleece. She came through and I've started the process. Go to jigraknits.livejournal.com for photos.
Hey guys. I am interested in making a moebius scarf. I pattern says to mpebius cast on. How the heck do you do that. By the way, the pattern came from the Menknit mag. It is a pattern by Witt Pratt. It looks nice but I have no idea how to cast on for this. The info I've found on the net makes it sound confusing.
By all accounts, I'm rather new at knitting. When I was a senior in college I threw out my back and couldn't move for a week. My roommate at the time was knitting and I asked her to show me. That fall I made a couple one color scarves for my niece.
Now I want to make one for myself but need a lot of help. I want to do a checkered pattern alternating purl and knit stitch with orange yarn and navy yarn. eg: the scarf if 28 stitches wide, I'd want 14 purl orange, then 14 knit navy for 10 rows to make a squre of orange and a square of navy. Then I'd change the color to alternate.
