1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / shrinking socks?? on: June 09, 2009 05:36:34 PM
Hi!! I just knit a pair of very nice... very LONG woolen socks. They turned out about a half inch too long on a mans size 10 foot, they are huge on me!  I was wondering if there was a safe way to shrink them and NOT felt them... I know you can't avoid a little bit of felting, but I would still like the stitches visible... They're for a gift and I would love  to not have to rip and start again, which is basically why I'm asking. I've already pulled them out three times... Cheesy

Thanks in advance!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two hats, and a Moebius! on: January 16, 2009 09:27:33 AM
So this first little thingey is called a Moebius scarf. It's a wonderful one-sided, one-edged shape that's fun to play with, easy to knit, and very very warm.

This hat was knit from the bottom up. The red edging is a stand-alone braided cable, with stitches for the green part of the hat picked up along one edge of it. I used the Kitchener stitch to join the two ends of the band. I love pom poms!

This is a Pineapple Hat! I made it for my best friend, and it's not technically complete, but the knitting part of it is done. I am still searching for some brown yarn to embroider v's on it for the little nubs of the pineapple. Once again, I love pom poms!
