I liberated a skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino from my mom's stash, some amazing Noro Iro from my sister, and in about 3 hours had the neckwarmer! It is amazingly cute (I don't know how to post pictures yet, but will try to) and the flower pattern takes about 10 minutes and knits up some really lovely flowers. Highly recommend this pattern--I don't think you need much in the way of skills, so it's a great advanced beginner type thing!
I had to accost someone today in Target! She was wearing a fabulous version of the Cabled Newsboy Cap, and we chatted for a few seconds about the pattern. It was such a nice run-in; i always feel like I'm the only knitter my age in my small town, so it was really great to see someone who knits punk rock, too!
I cannot find this yarn anywhere! I've looked at tons of online stores, even Ebay, but nothing! Can anyone recommend a substitute for me? I'd really like to knit Paris Loop, but was rec'd Cascade by my LYS, which is nowhere near Cicco and wasn't very nice. Help a knitter out!
I'm finally cabling, and it's so much easier than I thought it would be! I'm making a scarf from a Rowan book--I've left it at home, but it's a super long cabled scarf--and even though I had to totally frog it and start over, it's going well now!
The only problem: it's eating the yarn like no one's business. The pattern called for 4, and I'm already on the 3rd, and it's only a foot long. Am I doing something wrong, or is the pattern just insane as to the amount really needed?
I just found this site today and already my work productivity has plummeted!
I have a favor to ask of anyone who has their SnB book handy--I lent mine out to a friend learning how to knit: could anyone email me the pattern and yarn recs for the Coney Island Fireworks scarf? I was planning a trip to my LYS today after work, and would so, so appreciate your help!
