I posted a picture on my blog - I need some help deciding what to do with yarn in my stash. I'm going to be doing this pretty often if you are opinionated - come on over! I love to here ideas from different places. I get in a "rut" with my knitting friends - we tend to have some incest going on with patterns.
;DI'm laughing because it's a "warm" 28 degrees today - and on the flip side it gets to 110, neither of which are park weather. I always laugh that there are about 10 days a year that I wished I owned a convertible. Otherwise I need air or heat!
My group is kind of looking into a new place to meet to knit. There are a bunch of us (20-30 sometimes) & we currently meet at a coffee shop, but some of us have decided it's too dark & the vibe has changed recently....for whatever reason we are looking for a change. So I was thinking I could get some good ideas for venues from here - not specifically for my city (dallas area) but in general. Ideas?
We have thrown around: other coffee shops - but there are space issues in most hotels (which i think are resistent to a group unless we purchase stuff from their bars?) or why else would they let us? Malls - we have several with cushy seatin areas - but would that be weird?
Knitwit - which patterns is yours? Inquiring minds want to know...
I'm so glad to see such a great issue. I am not a sock knitter but I do love to look at them & many of my knitting buds are so I am always interested in those patterns - those socks knit flat & sewn are genius even if they are cheating just a little (which I love). but all of the patterns are nice this go round. Generally I end up not knitting anything out of the current issue but going back later & falling in love with something. For example, now I'm about to start on the sock monkey hats as gifts for my nieces & I just bought some yummy cashmere to make Fetching. Then this morning I found myself hooked on Carpathia - I hadn't really considered knitting any of them until now.
Plus I'm currently knitting a sweater from an issue several years ago (Sonnet). Oh how I love Knitty....
I am looking for a thread on a hair scarf that I saw a few weeks ago. I searched every possible combination of words I could think of but I guess I'm not right because I can not find it for the life of me. It was a skinny scarf that had a lace or weave type pattern to it that you use to tie at the neck, like a headband, only not. Does that make sense? It's not the panta or other headband things I've found that are sewn together at the ends, it have material that hangs down - looks like it ties maybe?
Please help - I'm trying to find it for a friend & I could've sworn I bookmarked it, but I guess not.
