Just finished a sweater for a friend. Briggs and Little sport yarn and 3.5 mm needles. I love working with their yarn. Knit in pieces.
A friend of mine has a sweatshirt given to him by the Carpenters back in the 1970s. It's a white cotton sweatshirt with the Carpenters' logo stitched in red. Over the years, the red dye has bled down and has given the area under the logo slightly pink for a couple inches. Does anyone know how he might be able to get the pink bleed out without damaging the sweatshirt or the logo?
My current Jacquard project, inspired by Moroccan design. It's building up to be a large square. Not just how it will end up.
In case any of you guys want to have a go at it, I'm posting the pattern. It's quite an easy one to repeat... I think...
Novice knitter really enjoying making socks. Seems like most patterns are for women altered to men's sizing. I find much errata in these. Also looking for something lighter for warm weather, most are done in wool however I've never used any sock weight other than wool. Any suggestions?
Just 24 days left in this school year (with students). I will be so glad to begin the summer knitting as much as possible. Tomorrow Geraldine, the Yarn Truck comes to my town. Hope to knit then too.
Where is everyone? I'm at the Mass Ave knitting retreat. Only guy here. Am I alone I Indy? Here for the next three weeks.
Most of the blogs I read on this site exclaim that spring and summer are coming---- not so for us in the Southern Hemisphere. I needed a new scarf so created the one pictured. It has great draping properties and is sooo warm. I just hope that I do not misplace it somewhere like a cafe.
New kickstart machine for hobbyist from the open knit inventors.
Today is the first day of Spring and I'm extremely grateful. Friends and family have pointed out the fact that Wyoming often has wintry conditions until mid-May but we've had a long warm spell this past week and I don't mind a bit. As I told them, "Even if we are having snow and cold, it still matters that it is Spring and we can anticipate the longer days and the return of warm weather."
