Scitchet Knits (and everything else)


austereblackcat:

A trio of Snapdragon Tams! This is one of my favourite hat patterns and it’s definitely a go-to when I have an extra skein of light worsted weight yarn lying around. (I’ve actually made it four times, but I lost my green version somewhere in Banff a couple of Christmases ago.)

This is a very cool pattern.

A few weeks ago I felt like doing a seed stitch dishcloth.  So, here it is.  My nephews got me the needles for Christmas.  They have cute little dogs on the ends.  I smile every time I pick them up.

I need to finish this soon so that I can start working on a project I’m designing.  I’m going to need to figure out what I’m doing with the stitch patterns and which patterns I like the best, so I’m gonna do that in washcloths that I will give to my mom, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law for mother’s day.  I want to use these needles ‘cuz they make me happy.

This is a cool construction.

Included in one of the boxes from my mom is part of a sweater with one ball of yarn.  I’m not sure if it is from my grandmother’s or great grandmother’s knitting stash.  I’m definitely going to need more than this one ball to finish it.  But this might be a project I take on eventually.  First I’d have to find more of this yarn, then I’d have to figure out how to finish it.  It is big, so I’m guessing it was originally going to be for my grandfather or great grandfather.

I really like having knitting and tea supplies from my grandmother and great grandmother.

Tutorial:  How to Install Zippers Perfectly

Don’t be alarmed when you see the instructions in Swedish.  If you scroll further down the page, you will find them in English as well.  This method seems to do a fabulous job of installing zippers in knitted garments!

I have yet to knit anything with a zipper, but it is something I’ve thought about.

My Christmas Present!  I bought the fabric for it in late October/Early November and sent it to my mom.  It took a while because she has a lot going on and apparently, she hates piping.  She could have told me that before I picked a pattern…

Anyway, I love the fabrics together and it has sooooo many pockets!  I used it when I went to the mechanics on Friday to take along her birthday present and some reading.

It is awesome that my mom is also a crafter.  Her birthday was March 2nd and when I told her I wasn’t finished with her present, she said it was okay ‘cuz she wasn’t done with my Christmas present yet. ;-)

If this knitting pattern doesn’t work on the third time I’m setting fire to my needles…..

Set fire to the pattern, not the needles! 

Have you tried emailing the designer?  They are usually pretty awesome about helping. 

It’s the pattern, not written very well!

It happens a lot. I’ve managed impressive typos in a pattern or two. Have you tried looking for a similar pattern that is better written?

Good luck!

knitting knitting problems

A couple weeks ago I went to the “L”YC (you know, ~60 miles away is not really “local”).  I went in for the Rowan Lima.  I had bought some to make something for myself a couple years ago and ended up using it all in gifts.  The rest of the haul is from the bargain shelves.  The Online caught my eye the moment I saw it.  I love the colors.  The Svale cotton and the Merino 5 were all in the $5 bin.

The natural lighting on these is a little dark, but the flash pictures had very wrong colors.  I seriously need to make myself a light box.
