Here is my most recent donation to a local charity. There are 26 hats total.
Thanks for viewing!
Rubber wheels Brother Bulky Sinker Plate
I noticed that the Brother KH260/270 carriage plate has three rubber wheels, no brushes. Anyone know the reason for this? The standard carriage plate has brushes instead. I'm just curious as to the workings
Socks for Sarah
Thought y'all might like to see the socks I knit for Sarah. I hope she likes them.
They were knit toe up. I used ml for the toe...when toe shaping was done I switched to a 9" circular for the foot. Then did ml for the fleegle heel and rest of the sock.
Making a blanket that calls for knit first and last 7 rows and each row starts and ends with 4 knit sts. For the border all around.
What would be a beautiful alternative to the knit every side border?
Photo if you have one please for a visual.
Interesting Use of Yarn
I hope this isn't the 3rd post of explanation. These were at the CT Flower Show this morning.
A new scarf from gifted yarn
I had posted in November that I had received a quantity of beautiful quality yarn from a friend who was clearing her sisterâs estate. Here is a scarf made from this gift
I love my sweater but...
I am knitting a sweater and it looks easy, but can be a challenge. It has a lot of tricky stitches. My question is: someone posted a remedy for the neck from rolling down. The sweater I am doing is on circular needles, so it is just knit. It is knitted from the top down and there is a pretty yarn over pattern around the neckline. The yarn over pattern won't show because the top is really rolling down. I am willing to start over if there is a fix for this out there in knit heaven. Thanks Lenda
kh 230 and super bulky #6 yarn
What is the thickest yarn you have tried on the brother kh230 and did the machine struggle with it? I tried to use a #6 yarn on the sk155 and could not get it to work without the machine making noise as the carriage went across the bed, so I stopped. Is the kh230 better equipped to handle the thicker yarns, in your experience?
I posted this cardigan awhile ago, people were asking for lace pattern directions
Knitted beanies etc for Saoirse & Ryan in England
These babies keep growing out of the clothes I send over for them, precious little darlings.
Saoirse is 2 yo so I'm sure she will love her new cardigan with the teapot, cupcake & cookies on it
