This pair of tube socks has been in the works for quite some time but were finished this morning. A little bit of ripping back when I first started them [too tight] and at the very end [reshaping the toe decreasing for a more pleasing look] but, otherwise, a pretty fast and satisfying project when I could just work on them.
These are the latest socks. They took exactly 4 weeks to knit; the second in only 10 days. I would've been faster if I'd not been reading so much. LOL
The yarn is from Mary Maxim and was a gift. These socks will be given to a friend who admires the colors. Not that I'm too butch to wear them myself.
Thought I'd post the Cowl that I was having a difficult time with on dbl pointed needles... Finally purchased a exchangeable cable knitting needle.knitted in Malabrigo Rasta - Belgian Chocolate- Patternfrom Rowan Big Accessories!
Then the second project - just a basic scarf in a rib stitch - Malabrigo Hummingbird- this project was a surprise gift for a friend.
It is a silly pink elephant balloon animal, here it is all twisted together. Since I had no grey yarn in my stash, I decided to make it pink. If you are old enough you will know all about pink elephants.
Hope all is well with everyone. This is a photo of something I knitted and is so strange, just wondering if any members here want to take a guess at what it may be.
I will post a picture of the object in a few days.
I have some Madelinetosh and some Jamieson and Smith Shetland, both lace weight, that I want to use to make a shawl. The Madelinetosh is a reddish burgundy colour and when I used it before, the colour came out and ruined a bedspread when I blocked it. I certainly don't want it to run into the grey Shetland wool. Is there something I can do to set the colour before washing it?
Hi. It's been a while since I have posted anything. Knitting has not been my priority. I just finished my orthotic and prosthetic technician training at school (in Minnesota) and have a job lined up in Syracuse, New York. I was wondering if anyone on this site lives in Syracuse, New York? And if anyone has leads on places to live? I have begun to look for places to live on craigslist. And since I am packing and planning to move, I can not possibly move with all my yarn. So is anyone interested in a large grab bag of an assortment of good yarn.
A shot of my new book and t-shirt. Nice! Especially grateful to every fella that knits for making it possible. Cheers!
Hi, everybody. It's the first day of Spring and I hope you all have a great one. I had planned to have the latest pair of socks done yesterday but will settle for today or, at the latest, tomorrow.
