I have about five preganant co-workers and we are having a big shower for all of them at work. I need a baby hat pattern that will impress. Something that I can make in a couple nights of knitting. I've looked around knitting pattern central and a few other places, but haven't been struck by anything...
A while back I participated in a weekend swap, where you only had 48 hours to complete one small project for your partner. It was my favorite swap and I would love to do another one...I am too busy to organize...anyone interested?
I just bought some sock yarn for my first sock project...I plan to tackle this on the plane as I travel home for the holidays...
one problem...I can't figure out what pattern to use. I am an advanced intermediate knitter, but these will be my first socks...should I go totally basic or will that be boring? Anyone have any suggestions? My flight leaves in the morning, so quick responses are most appreciated!
I have a problem. I have a sensitivity to wool and as a knitter, it puts me in a bad spot. Anyone have any yarns they love that are either a low wool content blend or completely wool free? I want to make some sweaters, but I don't want to be all itchy!
I am going to be knitting a felted bag and I had planned on using round bamboo handles. As I have been shopping around the internet, I have seen banana leaf purse handles. They are similar to the bamboo, but look smooth. They also seem to be a bit more spendy than their bamboo counterparts...heres a link:
I am attempting my first fair isle project...the Manresa Leg Warmers from Knitty.
I am having a problem with my floats...there are places in the chart where it calls for the strand to be carried across something like 24 stitches! I was under the impression that you shouldn't carry a float for more than four or five...what am I missing here? I have crazy strands everywhere!
Just ordered my yarn for these... http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTmanresa.html seems like a good first attempt at fair-isle for me. Knitpicks' super slow shipping will give me some time to finish up some of the stuff I already have on the needles, but I am looking forward to starting these soon!
