Just finished a sweater that I had been working on for a couple of months. The pattern is a mosaic one in which slipped stitches are used to create an effect. Only one colour is used in each row. I used Jamieson and Smith jumper weight Shetland wool and 3.25 needles. I used an applied I-cord for the neck opening.
Just a quick thought - thanks Jesse for sparking this -
Do you belong to both Men Who Knit and Ravelry's group, MWK? If so...do you find yourself using one more than the other?
Good Evening All, Several years ago I picked up a copy of Loop-d-Loop , more than 40 novel designs by Teva Durham because I was drawn to this particular raglan. It is an interesting design knitted in the round with an irregular rib with asymmetrical arm holes. The right is shaped to accommodate a simple drop shoulder sleeve, while the left side has a raglan placket to match a raglan sleeve. the right side has a shoulder seam, whereas the left side, the back and front and sleeve end up on the collar. Here is a photo grab from ravelry of one i particularly like.
I have not written here for some time. Just update that I am still knitting away. We got hit with a big snow storm yesterday so latter this am I will plow myself out.
Here's a couple of pics of items I've knitted over the last 12 months that all have my favourite thing ever .... cables!
1. A jumper for my new great-nephew using Cascade 220 Superwash from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits.
Morning All, I really liked this patten by Anne. Fun and quick. I like my personal twist with the orange toe and chartreuse heel. Hope it shapes up for a fulfilled weekend for everyone. Regards to All, JRob
Evening gentleman! :)
Just wanted to say hi and glad to finally be part of Men Who Knit.
Will upload some pics of projects when I have time.
In an effort to expand my repertoire of stitches, I created a prayer shawl using the half open seed stitch. The texture is chunky and drapes beautifully. This one is off to a charity event at a local salon/spa that has donated its services for an entire day to anyone going through chemotherapy. For those friends who participate in knitting for charity, or prayer shawl ministry, you can find a free download of the pattern by following this link:
Has anyone ever tried to make a circle with magic loop???
