Do You Recognize This Needle?
Hoping someone will recognize the manufacturer of this circular needle. One side is manufactured with a deep bend and the other end has a slight bend. All yarns slide easily and the deep bend fits very comfortably into your hand. I bought this last year and can't remember who the manufacturer was.
Whats the differences between purple cables, green cables, and black cables?
Pink and grey baby cardigan
Back to my beloved Waterwheel 890 as a base again for this cardigan. I have used the colour distribution in a few cardigans last year and knit this one because I couldn't think what to do and it's fairly mindless knitting - no thinking required! I'm not a fan of grey on babies so I kept it well away from the face. I have now started a lemon cardigan and I had intended using a pattern that I have used a few times before but kept getting it wrong for some reason so I left it for a while and am doing something much simpler.
How many hours does it take?
I am retired. I am knowledgeable in knitting and crocheting. But I cannot understand how some of you knit so fast. Please tell me how do you juggle housework, going shopping, making meals, sleeping, going to the doctor, going out with friends, taking care of every day problems, and last but not least, your personal health problems. Do any of your fantastic nimble finger people sleep? I am so ashamed that I cannot produce large quantities or large objects in so short a time. Do any of you sleep? Don't get me wrong, I understand that everybody has a technique of of knitting and crocheting, but the speed of making these beautiful things is out of my jurisdiction. WOW!!!!! is all I can say. I only have two hands and they are mostly doing other things besides my enjoyment of knitting and crocheting. If I can't knit or crochet at least a couple of hours a day, I am not a great person. This is something that I do for me, with me, and sometimes about me. This is my time and I love it. So if there is a solution to this, please let me know. I would be quite interested in learning something new that has escaped me for a long time. Thanks for reading (I could say listening, but that would be a FUNNY?!)
Discovered something interesting
After, I don't want to count, many years of knitting, I have just learned how to count rows easily. Maybe it has been on here before and I just never looked because I knew how. I am knitting a blanket with blanket yarn and trying to count the rows in stocking stitch is difficult when doing it on the knit side. Counting on the purl side is so much easier. Even on the black I am having no trouble counting as they are like garter stitch rows and it doesn't matter if you lose track of where you are which can happen on the knit row, because you are counting a row instead of a stitch.
Problems with Patons yarn
Hi! Iâm new to sock knitting and bought several skeins of Patons sock yarn at a local Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately, I have had 2 different (color schemes) skeins with knotted pieces in the middle of the skein and did not discover til almost finished with the sock (toe up). Has anyone else run into this? It is so infuriating! I emailed the company and never got a response. Will go back to hobby lobby with my complaint but it doesnât help my current projects. Sorry in advance for my bare leg in the picture!!
