I started reading the Knitting Workshop. So far I really like the book. Its not a book that gives you patterns on each page. Its more like a one on one class. She gives you tips and tricks along the way and at the same time we are knitting. Right now I am knitting the hat. I am up to color knitting. Knitting alternate stitches with two colors. EZ says it’s the simplest ever. I made a nice design where I am carrying over the yarn. This is a technique that I was scared of doing because it always looks so sloppy, but now it looks great, I am making the hat on circular needles. T he problem with me is that I had to use a smaller circular because I brought a short one. I was at my mothers house at the time. So now that I am almost done the hardest part to figure out is the decrease. After this, I won’t do this again. Meaning, I will stick to the pattern and if I don’t have the tools I need, I just won’t start. Elizabeth provides very precise tricks to finish the cap with ease.
Facebook is really boring, just thought I would say that.
Anyway, I sewed up a neat bag for my long loom. To make this short, I used the bottoms of my boys pant because the knees had holes. Made them into squares and sewing them up. Now all I is a soft lining to sew it on the inside. I found a fleece baby blanket in the thrift shop, but I didn’t get it. I will try to go back this week and get it. I will post a pic of it once I am done. I am thinking of decorating it, but I don’t know how. Now all I need is to know is how to shine the pins on my loom.
