Safe to say all knitters from novice to expert welcome

I am somewhere in the middle. Used to be better, rediscovering old skills.

Scarf is washed and pinned out on the livingroom floor like a hairy green assault course.

I'm on the 'improving' side of things. I can do more than just knit and purl but don't tend to do garments cos the kids have grown by the time I get them finished. Perhaps I should start knitting for any future grandkids?

I have mainly been doing socks and scarves. I dont need any more jumpers. And socks are good to do on trains and planes.

I've been knitting little jackets and bootees for a friend's twins.

I am now on my third attempt at knitting from an old pattern book that was my grandma's. I am failing at the piquot edge. It says to knit the cast on edge with the stitches on the needle but it keeps looking twisted. I've done it before with a different pattern and that says to sew it up afterwards - so that's what I'm going to do. G'ah, I will not be beaten by this pattern!

hi By 'eck, I'm a novice but love oohing at other people's brilliant works.

Small those are beautiful. 

Looking good Schmunks and I know just what you mean about getting muddled and ripping back.

I can't work out how to post a pic of the finished scarf  but I have put a photo on FB for those who frequent that place.

Mauve version now on the needles.

Ooo, lovely. Almost perfect apart from the milk in the tea. What are you knitting?
24/03/2012 at 18:19

Potato chip scarf.

By 'eck 

Earl grey tea with a dash of skimmed milk

It sounds complicated reading it but I guess once you get your head round it then it's not that complicated.  Very pretty result.

Too much milk in the tea for me too

My tea is weak and I was known as Mrs Magnolia in NCT days

Its really easy, TP and apparently the technique is short rows. 

24/03/2012 at 19:51
Yup, short row shaping. I 'learnt' how to do that when i first started cos i would forget where I was in a row and turn my knitting round. Oops!
I love earl grey tea, and roobois, and lemon and ginfer and....
