So I finally arrived back at home in Texas...Im glad to be home and of course to see my kitty and my friends.
$6,000 US Dollars...that is how much money I have spent since August 1, 2009 when I arrived in Germany.
So I couldn’t wait on the mail anymore (it's taking FOREVER!!!) and I had 200g of fiber sitting there just DYING to be spun.
So I ordered my first drop spindle...I know it's not really news but I am excited about it because it comes with wool roving!!!
Ok so I saw Bucks post about buying a Kromski Symphony wheel and that kind of got me curious onto spinning.
Well, here it is, in all its glory, it is still blocking right now but I couldnt wait to post pictures!! Knitting a sweater wasn't as bad as I thought, just took a long time!
Does anybody know a good stitch for seaming up a sweater? I know the standard is to use the “mattress stitch” or the invisible one…whatever it’s called.
Ok so I finished the torso part of my sweater, and went to block it, well, when I pulled it out of the water and squeezed all the water out the sweater is now BIGGER than what it needs to be!
So I think I’m addicted to either yarn or shopping or both.
So, I got to the point on the front part of my sweater where I have to bind off 11 of the center stitches for the neck...and now, im stuck. You see the pattern never says to switch to using two sets of circulars when doing the shoulders, yes, I know that should be common sense but this is my first sweater, so I dont know what to do, do I need to go buy another pair of the same needles and do the other shoulder simultaneously? What about the yarn? Do I just attach another skein of yarn to the other side and start knitting with that?
