I'm trying to find out if any knitters in Chicago, IL would like to start a group for men who knit. There was one several years ago, but it was not well attended and eventually disbanded.
Luckily, I barely made the deadline on this pair of socks, finishing the last of the weaving in ends by 9:00 PM local time.
The few times that I have used washable wool, I have found the garment would sag. Can any of you recommend a good one.
Hey guys been gone awhile, decided to get back. Had vacation in NYC this past week!. Had a great time! Did get to a knitting shop on East 77th Street called "Knitting City" great place. People there very friendly. Picked up a few skeins of yarn.(like I needed more)
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
I just joined the group and picked up knitting again and was wondering if anyone knows of any groups around NE Ohio?
I am at the bottom of the sweater I am making for my son and am trying to decide whether I should use a 2x2 rib or a 1x1 rib. What have you guys experienced. I have always used 2x2 but wondered if a 1x1 would look better. It's a very plain raglan sweater with stockinette stitch. My son likes his clothing to be simple and understated. Any suggestions?
The October socks turned out quite nice, despite having to knit them with 4 needles instead of my usual 5. I think it stretches and distorts the stitches but it couldn't be helped as the Size 0/ 2.0 mm double points I used only had the 4 needles. The Classic Elite Alpaca Sox was nice to work with and I think the person destined to receive this pair of socks will love them.
Once again, should this entry not allow me to upload the photos, they can be found on my Ravelry projects page.
This took forever on a SK700 knitting machine with lace carraige. I could have done it faster by hand.
I am trying to join the Men Who Knit group on Facebook and my request has been pending for a couple of days. Is there anyone in this group that could accept my request to join?
I've posted a notice here before and want to remind everyone that Spirit Day is this Thursday, October 15th. I encourage all members to wear purple that day as a sign to any LGBTQ young person that may see them that they are loved and supported as they make their way through life and any difficulties they face. Thank you.
