See pirates, it IS a knitting club!
My latest finished project. Mitts in some gorgeous yarn that Beebs gave me a couple of weeks ago.
Ooh, they're fab, Kwilter.
My stocking has stalled as I've got to the toe bit and think it might be tricky. Maybe tonight.
Glad I practiced as this one (the practice one) is looking a bit rubbish!
Commiserations on the scarf ... but best rip it out now than be left with a finished garment you don't like.
I sewed up jumper no2 when I was away this weekend. Pity thick jumper weather is over ....
TP - it's "slip slip knit" (I think the yanks use it more than we do) and is explained better than I could here
hope that helps
edit - it's also known by the Brits as "knit 2 tog through the back of the loops"
Thanks fraggle. I googled it and found out it was indeed k2togtbl and it is done! It's a US pattern.
My heel is turned, my stitches are picked up and I am decreasing down to 60 stitches again. I may have a whole sock by tomorrow night
Sorry TP! I just k2tog throught the back of the loop for ssk, seems to work OK.
Where's the picture then?
I have a knitting machine List Fairy - if you can give me an idea of the pattern and the ply of the wool, I can let you know if I can do it. Generally scarves are easy enough.
I don't do commisioning as such - although I used to when my children were small - but I'd be happy to do a small job.
I have a standard gauge machine, so if the yarn you have is very fine, you may need to find someone with a fine gauge machine.
Let me know
Have decided to have a go at these. The only knitting I have done in the past is a one colour scarf, so I am sure this project will test my patience and provide much comedy for others
Oh I like those Can you knit me a pair next? I'll exchange them for some handknitted socks!
So......I have hit a problem straight away. I have cast on the 8 stitches as instructed and now I have to increase in first stitch, knit to last, increase in last
