Cabled Cushion (k)
This cushion was requested by a friend and she likes it, thankfully. She picked the yarn and the colour.
It's basically just a combination of cables she chose, and knitted to size.
The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Stellar DK (8 ply) 50% bamboo/50% wool in Lolite.
Fairly accurate colour representation.
I have a Empisal KH91? Does anyone want it?
We are clearing out my mums house (she has moved into aged care).
It’s in a number of boxes. It’s located in Orange NSW but I can get it to Canberra.
Free to a good home.
Seems a waste to throw it in the top.
Looking for a different colour
I want to knit a doll with a Mediterranean/Latino appearance, I usually use Rico Classic baby yarn in the colour 'powder' for my doll knitting but want this one to look more tanned.
Has anyone any any suggestions what colour to use? Preferably in a baby yarn please
My Finish and A Thank You
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help/suggestions on borders and how to tell if you even needed to add a border to prevent curling on the edges. I also wanted to share a picture of the lapghan I made using the Diagonal Rib 2 stitch which I found because some lovely person here listed a website with lots of stitches. I don't normally post my work, but had to share and say thank you for all your help. In the picture, I folded it so you could see that the pattern actually shows up on both sides.
Have a super day and weekend and Happy Knitting...Judy :)
Sock pattern help needed please
Help. !! Socks requested for Christmas. Two problems. His feet are size 15 with a high instep. I’m in Canada and he’s in UK. Hard to try them as I knit. Any ideas for a pattern this big.? All help will be greatly appreciated.
How on earth did this happen!?
I was making this for a gift. All was going well until I added another ball of yarn. Could the new ball have been wound too tight? It didn't seem any different as I was knitting and I did not change any settings. I wasn't aware of the difference until I took it off the machine and was admiring my beautiful work.ð Also notice the two tight stitches running down for about 10 inches. I don't see any bent needles. What a disappointment.

Finished the mittens :/
Here they are. I didn't think my tension would change in less that a week.
I used the same yarn, needles, pattern. Only a few days in between each mitten.
I knit with double points and I have a few sets of the same size so I can knit them at the same time. But I didn't this time.
I will knit a few rows of rib from one ball, then the same amount with the second ball of yarn.
And keep going like that.
