Recommended Posts

That is beautiful!!

 

 

Thank you. I am doing it in a hand painted silk. It feels amazing...I hoe to post pics tomrrow. Not that I have a lot done. I just had to frog 60 rows. There was a mistake waaay back and the more I looked at it the worse it seemed to me, so I started it over. :blush

Have any of you tried the Knitters Pride Cubics needles? They are wood they have a super point and they are square. It makes for easier holding of the needles.

The problem is that it is double knit and that makes is more confusing. I'm not sure which way to put the loops back on at the color changes!

 

Oh, I've only done one double knit project, and it was small. Yikes is all I can say. :eek

I was wondering about them! I think I might have to give them a try. :)

Hmmmm... I don't have anything on my needles right now. I finished part of my niece's bridal shower gift. I knitted a spa and bath set (wash cloth, headband and soap sack). Of course I got carried away and had to make her homemade fragranced bath salts, a lavender sachet (I had a lot of buds harvested from my plants!), along with some homemade soaps that I am now waiting to harden. I hope she likes them. I'm also excited because I haven't seen her in 10+ years! It's going to be a lovely day.

:sun

Gosh darn it!... I forgot to take a picture of the spa set that I made for my niece's bridal shower that was this past weekend.

 

Anyway, last night I started an afghan for my sister. I purchased KnitPick's Brava yarn. My sister picked the color "wine". The pattern I'm doing is from Leisure Art's Big Book of Quick Knit Afghans and is called "Dainty".

 

In between I may try to fit in some dishcloths. My mom and sister-in-law both love the knitted ones.

Hey, all. I have been knitting for some time, but still qualify as a beginner - I always get frustrated and put it down because I can't knit nearly as well as I can crochet. Right now I am working on a "Boa scarf". It's one of those fur yarns that I can't crochet with, thus the knitting. I do that occasionally - I see a project that just can't be done in crochet, and take out the needles. Frustrating, but I hope to get better over time.

I finished a dishcloth this morning and have a Sockhead Hat nearly done. There is a little mistake which I need to tink back and then I should finish in only a few minutes, I'm so near the end. After that I'm just winding yarn for the Ravellenic Games starting later this month. I plan (hope) to knit Welsh Country Stockings in the same colorway this lady shows on her blog, chocolate brown and creamy white, only I will try to make knee socks of them.

I have been working on socks lately. I put the shawl aside while I try to decide if I like the color I have chosen or not. Hubby likes wool socks for winter at work. It has been way to hot here to work on anything big here. So socks it is. If I can find my old camera I will take a picture of the pair that I finished.

 

I found it!!! Here they are....

I so admire anyone who can knit socks. I am just not coordinated enough to keep track of more than two needles!

Today I frogged a shawl and a scarf that I just didn't like much, and started on another scarf for my DD, the pattern is Christmas Lace and it is really easy. Just a two row repeat.

Cindy,

There is a lady at my LYS that does socks on a very shory cabled needle and loves it! The needles are made by Choo Gooo (sp). It might be worth a try for you.

Just FYI, Chia Goo needles.

 

I can't show you what's on my needles, because it might be for a swap here on the 'ville if I can get it done on time, but I can show you the Project Linus blanket I just finished, after 3 months of working on it. I love it, despite a few mistakes in the cabling. Caron One Pound, azure (2 skeins).

Very pretty blanket. I just could not remember how to spell the name of the needles.

Thanks, will have to see if I can figure that out.

Thanks for the clarification.

Your blanket is beautiful!

Thanks, all. I'm really delighted with that blanket, and SweetPea65 gave me some yarn that will make an awesome cabled blanket, but I need a break from cabling for a bit. :P

 

I happened to have the Chia Goo website bookmarked because I keep hearing good things about these needles, but my budget is tight so I prefer to spurge on yarn than needles. But, maybe someday....

I finished another sock last night. I am not a big fan of the color. It has more brown in it than I would like, so I am going to relly have to push myself to finish (or even start) the second one.

I'm about 1/5 of the way through the afghan I'm knitting for my sister. It's coming out pretty good. It's done with 2 strands and size 17 needles, so my hands ache a bit more than they normally do when I knit. When it gets too bad, I set it aside and knit dishcloths on size 7's for a little break. ;)

 

I do have to find some premie size knit baby blanket patterns. I'd love to work some in to what I send to NICU. If anyone has any ideas, please send me pattern links or direction. Thanks so much!!! :manyheart

OOh, one of my favorite baby blanket patterns is: http://wishingiwasknitting.blogspot.com/2007/04/just-my-size.html because if I remember correctly, this basketweave is reversible (but maybe not). If not, this basketweave is the reversible one: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-blocks-2 (it's from one of the Debbie Macomber pattern books, which my library has, so you can check if yours does so you can get the pattern).

 

I also really like Tender Wraps III here: http://www.kraemeryarns.com/patterns/ It's very easy to do and you can adjust it to any size you want.

 

Have fun! Patty

I finally finished my sweater for the county fair. It is done on size 13 needles and chunky yarn. The projects get dropped off on Monday, and then I will see how I did on Wednesday. I can't wait!

I finished another pair of socks and am working on the third pair now. This time I am keeping track of all the rows I do so I can be sure that I have the exact same size when they come off the needles. I will take a picture of the socks I finished as soon as I find the memory card for the camera.... (gotta love kids)

Takin' a break from my sister's afghan. I'm waiting for my grandma to call tonite. I'm working on a dishcloth for my mom. I'm using KnitPicks "Dishie" cotton, and it is a DREAM to work with. And the stitch definition is awesome!

I am so happy I finally got my new needles in the mail today. I ordered a set of signature DPN's I love them. They are very sharp and make it so easy to knit 2 together.

 

Here are the socks I finished a couple nights ago ( If I got the picture off my phone right)....

On my used needles I just picked up from the thrift store today for $1.00 is stuck on tape just bought them a few hours ago..:O) I will fix this issue and then start on learning to KNIT so I can teach my dd who wants to learn to KNIT..I must learn first to explain/teach her as she doesn't understand written/video directions.. I have taught her to crochet and she has been whipping up /dishcloths/scarves/hats/fingerless gloves like crazy but she is bored with these things and wants to try Knitting (who knew) I planned to try out the CROKNIT but I guess I am going to learn to knit first LOL..:eek:think Like I don't have enough to do with all my crochet projects I am working on..
