Knitting

Postby haysi » Fri Jan 05, 2007 10:18 am

I love knitting and find it theraputic, it lets me empty my mind for a while.

I get some really nice wool and knit scarves, am afraid thats as much as I can do!

I knitted my friend a lovely pink fluffy scarf. she calls it bagpuss :lol:

Its really not a boring hobby, ok I admit its not an exciting hobby, but it suits me.

You should practice different stitches within your scarves - treat them as samplers - then you can have even more fun without having to do anything too complicated. I once knitted a jumper (for myself - I still have the pattern somewhere, really easy) and the front was a rectangle composed of blocks of different stitches, the back was just a large rectangular block and the sleeves were dead simple. I made it up in dusky pink mohair wool (real wool) and it lasted for about 20 years. If I can find the pattern, would you like a copy ?

Whilst trawling that interwebby thingy for info on a row counter, I came across this brilliant site:-

http://wendyknits.net/

Have a look at the "Completed Work" section on the homepage - some of the scarves and shawls are absolutely beautiful and gorgeously made up. I might have a go at a pair of beaded wrist warmers !
