Needle size --Chunky Bumps yarn
I have several 50 gm balls of Chunky Bumps yarn (Needle Crafters - Canadian Import from China). What size needles should I use for a scarf?)
Crochet cotton top for daughter
Namaste. I had made this cotton top for my daughter about a month ago. I modelled it for her when I made it, but she just sent me the pictures
The top is a variation of a free pattern "Off-the-shoulders Cropped Top by Sweet Nothings". Thank you for looking. Love and Light to all.
Hating Stockinette stitch
I am knitting a long vertical stripe short sleeve sweater or vest.
I adore the look of Stockinette stitch when on a sweater or garment but right now cause the this is long and I have it on long a cable needle its curling around the cable and making it difficult to move the project up the needles to knit!!!!
Thanks for reading my vent!
Baby cables raglan increases look a mess
I'm trying to do the Baby cables and big ones too. I think I followed the instructions for the raglan increases, but they look a mess. Does anyone have recommendations for a neat invisible increase.
Which those machines are best studio 155 or brother kh260
The first toy I've made from Toys from the Toybox II. It's for my GD, and I think she's excited about him! I originally wanted to make him from Knitpicks Fable Fur, but that was way too bulky a yarn, and I couldn't see the stitches to count them, even though the softness of that yarn is to die for! This is the Joann Buttercream yarn. Also soft, but the stitches can be seen and counted, and the puppy won't have to have a room all for himself!
Only one to go! Just finished U of Michigan , now to do Michigan State!
Knitting a C2C blanket, using Red Heart Bunches of Hugs. Using the Dragon color, which is blues, greens and yellow. My frustration is with the yellow section of the yarn. Every yellow section has areas of the other colors. I thought about cutting out the mis-dyed areas, but am left with many short yellow sections and Russian join is not great with this yarn.
So my question is: Cut out yellow sections or leave in and not worry about the contrast areas?
TIA for any advice.
zip-lining in NZ
I just returned (a couple of weeks ago) from a fabulous trip to AU & NZ. Visited an old high school chum in Melbourne, there for just a few days, then on to NZ & a 14 day bus tour. What a beautiful country you all have! If I weren't already old & not inclined to move again, I could live there. My camera broke in the beginning of the trip, so I have little to share, but I did get photos taken on a zip-lining trip. Never thought I'd even try this, but I loved it! It's the most exhilarating thing I've ever done! THis is me, hanging out in mid-air.
Fishtail braid headband pic and question
I just finished this headband. Is is free on Raverly. Pretty simple to make, once you get in the grove with the pattern.
My question is does anyone know how to make it wider?
