I have to rip back to a mistake in my prayer shawl. Do I do it from the top down or from the bottom up. I know if I do it the right way it will just unravel or the wrong way makes it tangle. Didn't find the mistake til it was already bound off. Grrrrrrrrr!
Just sharing ( knitting ) SL
Correcting my cast on method--help! Plz
Just days before age 76 it pleases me to still be trying to improve my knitting but i do need a suggestion: when I cast on (as I did today to make the edge of an AG cardigan), the k2,p2 ribbing is always problematicly rounded on the beginning side while even and a 90 degree squared angle at the end of that strip.
I have considred doing an extra st. at the beginning thus k, (k2, p2) to the end.
See pic for clarity. It improves with blocking but never looks the same.
How do others solve this please. Thank you in advance--i seem to be coming up with a query/ day lately.
Texas Oklahoma Fair entries
This is the first time I've ever entered my work in anything. Got 2nd place in 4 entries.
My friend who has had surgery has gone home today from hospital. She didn't want flowers but I'm sure she'll like the knitted ones. Hope you do too. Not perfect but I guess they'll have to do.
I printed out a free pattern for a c2c blanket to learn how to do it & was told the pattern is American because they use the term dc & here in Australia we call it a treble. Is this correct. Thank you
Done it again!The traditional heel socks.
I am once again happy to show my second pair of socks. I had thought to make one toe up but changed my plan as I wanted to try a traditional one first,and then go to tricky ones. This is made from scrap pure wool, but happy to use them up. I can call it Best out of Waste. Some of you said that sock knitting is addictive, you were so right.! These days I am thinking only of socks when not knitting. I have done Partridges Eye stitch in the heel. I followed Marley Birds tutorial. She was very clear in her instructions.
Thank you for viewing it.
Just finished my fifth Tearoom Bear. Pattern by Mary Jane’s Tearoom.
Happy creative knitting to all!
My first steek
I am about to start my first steek. The sweater is knit with superwash fingering weight wool/nylon. My question is... do you block the sweater before stabilizing the steek with sewn stitches? Any insights will be greatly appreciated.
