Whenever I knit with ribbon yarn I weave in the ends and then secure them with a few stitches sewn at the end and at times a stitch in the middle of the tucked in tail. I use thread as close to the color of the yarn as possible. Ribbon yarn is slippery and tends to come undone. Since using this method, the tails never come loose.
Beautiful. The colors go so well together. I especially like the pattern on the sleeves. Your floats are so neat and tidy. Knitting a fair isle sweater is on my bucket list. Great job.
Such a pretty color. I always like feather and fan. Looks lovely.
My niece Is having a baby boy this summer. I made these as part of her baby shower gift. The puppy is one of GypsycreamÃ¢ÂÂs Toys from the Toy Box II collection. As always, PatÃ¢ÂÂs patterns are detailed and very easy. It is so much fun to watch as these stuffed animals take on a personality of their own as I am sewing them together. It was knit with Buttercream Lux from JoannÃ¢ÂÂs which is so very soft and cuddly. The caterpillar and sweater set were previously posted but now all of the knitted gifts are completed. I crocheted the eyes on the puppy rather than using safety eyes for a baby. Thank you for looking.
My husband bought me the large ball winder and large swift for Christmas. What a difference the Stanwood made! The yarn doesn’t get caught in the winder like my KnitPicks winder often does. Haven’t used it much so far but I see a lot of use in the future. I bought yarn in Rhinebeck which is calling to me to be wound into cakes.
It is beautiful. The yarn is lovely and the “model” is radiant. No will would ever guess it is your first sweater. Enjoy wearing it and all the compliments you are sure to receive.
Stunning. Beautiful knitting.
I am always satisfied with Handsome Fibers. Their customer service is wonderful. I bought interchangeable needle tips and when one of the sets arrived the threads were damaged and it didn’t screw onto the cord. I called them and they sent a replacement the same day. Thank you for telling us about the discount coupon. I just saved 15%. Knitter’s Pride interchangeable tips also work with Knit Picks cables and Knitter’s Pride have sizes 2.5” and size 3” long and short tips which I order from Hansome Fibers.
What a cutie. Look at that cheeky little smile. Looks like she is thinking about mischief.
How precious. Lucky daughter.
I think the bright colors are wonderful. So cheerful and fun.
