Well it's Saturday and about 80 degrees on Long Island. the sun is shinning, so why am I inside?
As I mentioned in my last entry, I have started my fisherman knit sweater for my greyhound, Ernie. I found the pattern online.
I am having trouble uploading pictures from my computer to this site. Don't know what I am doing wrong, but nothing appears. Should anyone know what I am doing wrong, please help.
If anyone is interested in seeing what I have been knitting, please visit my blog at:
Well it is the end of the week, and I have finished one of my projects previously mentioned. My one daughter was looking through some of my pattern books and saw a shawl that she really liked. So, I put down her project, after working on it for 3 days. Oh well, let's see what she has picked out.
I have finished my other daughter, "T's" shawl. This can be seen on my blog. The project went quicker than I thought. The only problem with this pattern is that the ends of the knitting needles got caught in the stiches. I had to be careful not to knit the shawl to itself. Which I did once and didn't understand why I the shawl looked as it did. I got so fustrated that I pulled the whole thing apart and re-started it and didn't put it down until I completed it. I should have used circular needles. T says that she really likes it.
It's just the beginning
Well, here I sit trying to think of what to write about in my blog.
I have been knitting for a few years now. It all started as a young boy when my mother first showed me how to cast on to a needle and how to knit and purl. Well, I was thrilled. I created a holy mess of a something, but boy was I proud. After that I put down my needles for a number of years; only to have a very good friend suggest I take up knitting while I was going through my divorce. She gave me a project of knitting a toddler cardigan for my grandson. Now folks, remember I hadn't knitted for years. Well believe it or not I finished this cardigan with buttons and pockets. It was beautiful. Now I was really hooked and started knitting my next sweater.
