Cotton Yarn Recommendations, Please
I've been asked to make (for 2018 Christmas gift) a men's hat/cap using only cotton yarn. I have a pattern I like very much that calls for bulky weight yarn. Has a bit of ribbing at the open end of hat. Does anyone know of a bulky weight, cotton yarn that won't look and feel like string? The few things I've made using cotton yarn (wash cloths) ended up looking fine, but I remember working with the yarn was a challenge because it had very little "give" to it. I will be using 16" circular needles, as well. Thank you for your recommendations/advice! Karen
Cat tail wand wanted
Wondering where you've purchased your cat tail wands? I'm in CNY.
I was so taken by the Christmas elves that kper loriekennedy just posted today. I was just wondering if anyone has made or seen Peanuts characters?
Socks Opinions Needed
1. What is the best heel for a knitted sock?
2. What are the best toes for socks?
I’ve been MIA for a long time so happy New Year :)
I am obsessed with this pattern. I can’t stop knitting more and more shawls! Did the first couple on my KM then wrote out the patten for hand knitting so I can watch tv and knit :) Catching up on thank you gifts....
Trying to get some knitting in to try these designs
My latest shawl
This is a feather and fan pattern. It is a triangular shawl that i have finished knitting and blocking.
I used nearly 3, 50 gm balls of Drops Merino superwash 4 ply and 3.5 mm needles. The original pattern did not have the picot edging but i decided to do it to embellish it. Thank you for looking.
Final project of 2017. 1898 hat.
This post is a little late but here is what I finished on New Years Eve. Asked my husband to try it on, asked if he liked it. He said it was really nice. I said good! It's for you! happy new year! LOL! He really loved it once the frigid temperatures set in here in Pittsburgh! I always thought this would be too hard to do. Then watched a video and thought... I can do that! Even used yarn from my stash!
Hailey loved her food!
She had fun with the burger, such a great toy for little ones. I had fun making it and had more fun playing with Hailey with it. Thanks for looking
