beautiful job well done
You did great and working in the round makes it easy to use up odd and ends of yarn. Love working from the top down because you know right away when the garment is wide enough. Too bad lately I am just not in the mood for a larger project and stick to scarfs and socks. You may get me going again.
Thank you. I saw a pattern the other day where odds and ends were used randomly for one row only and the purl side was used as the right side. It looked very nice - problem will be you have to think of how to deal will all the ends. Probably think of it as a steek, machine fasten them and knit two strip for buttons and buttonholes. I'll have to think about when the larger balls are used up.
Nice job...I have trouble knitting with two straight knitting needles...can't imaging one in the round...
It can be a bit of a struggle with 4 or 5 double pointed ones but those circular ones are easy to use. The first three rows are usually a bit wobbly after that the weight of the knitting keeps it nice and straight.
The first circular ones I bought came from the Needlewoman shop in Regent Street - that was when we lived in Ewell 45 years ago. And I've loved them ever since.
It's lovely. You make miracles.
Thank you. Over 70 years of practice, although I did use patterns for a half of it.
These colors are dreamy together. I hope you have a collection of all your knitting on the recipients!
Very nice. i don't think I could attempt something like this. Lucky person who receives it. Hugs
To be able to knit from the hem up or the neck down minus a pattern is a skill I don't have so congratulations on your jumper and I'm sure before long we will see another made from the wool not used for this.
I already started on another one..
I envy all your knitting skills, I can do the knit and pearl stitch , but I never do anything with them, I would rather Quilt or sew. Beautiful sweater.
I find it very relaxing. No machine involved as in embroidery, sewing or quilting. I love that too, but find crocheting and knitting soothing when I need to take a rest or watch TV.
Wat een mooie trui,heb ik voor mijn kinderen ook al eens gebreid.
Doppelt hällt besser, haha
Dank je. Ik zal de dubbele verwijderen. Een echt Noors patroon kan heel mooi zijn, dit zijn zo maar wat probeersels uit de losse pols.
Beautiful! I can only crochet, and then only flat things that don't have to be perfectly sized. Jealous! :0)
Thank you. I learned to knit before I learned crochet. I like to crochet - did a number of shawls and throws, but for clothing I prefer knitting.
It's gorgeous I love everybody's knitting on here!. Love Chris
Well done - I've always liked circular yokes. Yours is lovely.
Beautiful design. Whom ever receives it is sure to love it!
Very nice. Anyone would love to receive this beautiful gift.
Beautiful, Martine.....I don't do well with charts, I get very confused so I envy those of you who can do this complcated patterns...
I did not use a chart, just tried out a few things. Only thing I calculated was when to decrease in the yoke. A raglan has 4x2 decreases every other row, I did 20 st every 10 rows (on average) - that varied a bit if it would mean decreases in a pattern. And as you can see I did a number of easy stripes. The tricky bit was the 3 colour one. It was such a simple idea, a 2x2 pink square, white around it an a blue surround. I am OK with two colours, but those two rows with three slowed me down considerably.
