I was given a new digital camera, so am experimenting with it.
I have casually mentioned lately in the hearing of my partner that I would like to learn to spin. Well, I just opened my Christmas presents and I am still in shock.
I know that most of us knit the way we were taught, whether the English/North American or the continental style. I only do it the standard Canadian way, yarn in right hand etc. etc.
Does anyone know where I can get some patterns for men's kilt hose?
I am interested in getting a swift, but since it is not the sort of thing you can amble into your local Zeller's and pick up, I might have to order it.
Just out shovelling snow for the last hour. Now inside for a while until I have to do it again in a couple of hours. Or until the plow goes down our road. A good day to stay inside and knit.
I have a huge stash of yarn, more projects and stuff than I will do in years, yet I cant seem to stop myself from getting more. One of my LYSs is closing and having their final sale.
I was just admiring Tom's posted picture of the Queen Anne Lace shawl that he knit for his sister. I would like to try doing some lace knitting but, I admit, it scares the bejeebers out of me.
I know this is old hat to most of you guys, but I just did something in my knitting that I have never done before and I feel like celebrating. lol. I am knitting a waistcoat with a lot of cabling.
I just sent my sister a sweater which I knitted. The problem is, somehow I screwed up on the size and the arms are way too wide and floppy. I really don't have either the heart or the skill to take it all apart and try again so the question is: "Do I cut my loses and tell her to give it to someone with really fat arms?" :-) Or, "What would happen if I turned it inside out, got a sewing machine, ran a seam a few times up the inside of the arms and then cut off the excess?" I know, it sounds horrible to everyone's knitting soul but that is about all I could face doing at this point.
