Re: Where have all the knitters gone ?


I have just finished sewing up a sweater for my daughter which she started
and then left.

As I can't stand UFO's I finished it.

Looks very nice!

I'm here, lurking as usual! Currently knitting booties for all my
friends who are pregnant (which is a lot of them). At least they are
small and quick to knit!

Shame about all the spam :(

I am very busy trying to sew up a new summer wardrobe ( we wear summer
clothes right until the end of October here in the Big Easy).  I have
sufficient dressy clothes, but, having been sick off and on for quite a
while, my everyday clothes are all falling apart.

I've been busy knitting and finished the Kimono Shawl, here's a link
so yo can see what it looks like, but mine is knit in a soft beige
Fino, a silk/alpaca blend.  I still need to block mine.

I knit a pair of socks this summer in Online Supersocke "Tropic", and
have another pair on the needles in shades of white to black.  I just
finished knitting a scarf for a future daughter in law in Cascade 220
Superwash.

Now I'm considering knitting my first Moebius using Cat Bordhi's cast-
on.  Anyone have any hints or tips?

take care,  Linda D. in B.C., Canada



Re: Where have all the knitters gone ?




Linda i have made `quite` some Moebious [ in fact have one going on
just now ], many of my friends want one as a birthday present [!!!] .
I have seen this cast on , but i do my different .

i make a guage  to know exactly how many stitches i need for my
Moebious ,than use a 1 size bigger needle than needed , for the cast
on , than when i turn the st to cast on the on the underside of each
st , i use the `proper` needle size,,, i always have a smaller Dp
needle ready to assist if a st gets `stuck` ...
If you never made a moebious and can crochet, maybe you shjould make
your first one in crochet !!!
When you knit it you knit in a & way ,,,,,,,,remember it might looks
that you work a bird`s nest,,,,,

Hi Mirjam, thank you for the good wishes.

I wear whatever the occasion seems to call for.  Sometimes it is a
skirt, sometimes not.  Lately I have been making several pairs of loose,
flowing, wide pants out of rayon challis.  Nice and airy in hot weather,
but able to stop the draft when I go into an overly air conditioned
building.  Yes, I have been making tops to go with them.  Next, I need
to make some winter weight pants (about the weight I called summer pants
in England) plus some vests - waistcoats - to go with the existing
skirts and blouses.  I have also been making some hats - small, compact,
but covering my head in the sun.  Mostly straw hats so far, but I have
patterns for some canvas ones and some satin ones for dressier
occasions, when I want a hat but my very large ones would not be
appropriate.

 I'm still here, I just read more than I post, sorry! Currently knitting
fingerless gloves for a friend, the only crochet project on the go is a
vast granny square that I add all my scraps to. I don't wewave, but a
friend of mine has just borrowed a spinning wheel and I'm hoping to have
a go at some point.

Fingerless mittens are very useful and neat , do you also add a `flap`
that can cover the fingers when one is not working ?

 Sometimes I do, but not these ones. These ones are rather fancy and
have a buckle across the wrist, they're from the book Knitting New
Mittens and Gloves by Robin Melanson.

 They are :) I'll try and remember to put pictures up when I'm done. I
love the book, almost everything in it is something I'd like to make,
and I know someone who'd like to wear it.
