My next project will be the Socks Appeal Boxers by the Skacel Collection. I just cast on the 56 stitches required for the center back panel. I am using leftover yarn in my stash. Should be fun and easy. Mindless TV knitting while sitting with my wife while she is watching her shows. Hope you've all got your shopping done. JRob
Just finished binding off Barndom a Stephen West design (see my previous post). Need to weave in the loose ends and block. Hope to complete tomorrow night so that I can wear it Christmas Eve. Loved the pattern and design. JRob
Happy Holidays All,
Well Barndom is coming off the needles just in time for Christmas. I love the bind-off technique. I have never used this method before. BO all stitches loosely on RS row as follows, (k2tog tbl, slip st back to left needle) to end of row. It creates a beautiful edge.
Hope your New Year is filled with fantastic yarn, great patterns and wonderful garments,
I've noticed that many members are able to post pictures directly on to the MWK page so that there is no need to click attachments, would someone please tutor me concerning this method and process?
This is a heavy yarn, but I love the result.
This is the “Prince of Wales Vest” by Katherine Misegades from the book “Sweaters From Camp” by Swanson et al. First, a bit of history. The then Prince of Wales, Edward VIII, was given a Fair Isle garment in 1921. The prince was known as a trend setter and he was always keen to promote British products. He wore Fair Isle jumpers, slipovers and stockings in public, especially on the golf course, thereby popularizing Fair Isle garments and giving a boost to the industry. He posed for the famous painting by Sir Henry Lander in 1921, wearing a traditional Fair Isle jumper.
