Marty Mouse and Sarah The Teddy Bear
Marty Mouse and Sarah The Teddy Bear are getting ready for Christmas!
I have read of dog hair being spun into yarn. I got to wondering, after vacuuming up yet more hair shed by my long haired black cat, whether anyone has ever heard of using cat hair in spinning yarn? Plop's fur is really soft and Long enough to spin. Plop is pictured below
The year has gone by so fast! I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Very Happy Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 22nd). Hoping it will be special for all of you and your family and friends. Let's wish everyone we see a Happy Thanksgiving with a smile.
Hi! Can anyone tell me what style of knitting this is?
Hi, my Italian grandmother taught me this, what I'm guessing is a type of knitting, when I was very young. Unfortunately she never knew the English name and I cannot remember the Italian name. Would anyone know what this style is called? It is almost like a plait.
Excuse my very crude tools.
Thank you so much!
Pattern modifications or adjustment questions
I was wondering if there are any very easy articles or videos on the internet on how to easily make adjustments or change a beginner or intermediate pattern when you count you gauge and you can't get gauge that you are off a a few inches on either st gauge or row gauge?
Any simple math solutions ?and how does a person figure out how to read a pattern and figure out the number of sts and rows and your gauge that that doesn't fit the pattern gauge?
How does a person make any pattern bigger or smaller by a few sts or rows?
What do you guys think? Did any of you guys make any modifications or adjustments to patterns?
I think it was last week a lady posted a picture of a striped poncho which had buttons down the side. I can't remember where I downloaded this pattern. Help me? Thanks in advance.
Identify yarn ?
I bought this one skein second hand. No label. It is two ply yarn and I am knitting on a size 8 needle. Does anyone recognize it? The color is distinctive which is what attracted me. Maybe James Brett Marble in a worsted weight?
Nathan's Cable Sweater with Hood
I searched and searched the internet for boys sweater with hood, top down design, but had a hard time finding one. So with all the info gathered I did my own design. Now hope it fits my grandson who wears a size 3 or 4.
I used Caron Simply Soft Ombre Blue Jean. I did a provisional CO using size 8 needles so I did not have to pick up stitches for the hood. I found a cable that would fit the front and back of the sweater. I did the sleeves in the round with a 2X2 ribbing at the end. The ribbing I used size 7 needles. Used a crochet BO. I ended up having to pick up stitches around the edges of the hood for a 2X2 ribbbing.
scarf and hat, not matching
I saw this scarf pattern here. It calls for Scarfie yarn. I even have some already but it is black and hot pink and the pattern wouldn't show up in the black. As pretty as the yarn is I will use it for seed stitch or something like that. I used a yarn colour called 'silk'. The hat is a worksock pattern that I enjoy. I think men will like it. I hope so.
