I'm back to knitting after many years--my favorite was fair-isle, working with Norwegian and Scottish designs and my own hand-spun yarns. I'm exploring socks with all of these great new yarns!!

#4 Tomten is finished!! This one has my horizontal/vertical stripes!!

Posted on August 7, 2010 at 2:30pm 4 Comments

It's finally finished--had to slow down a bit!! The horizontal/vertical stripes does work for the Tomten, did the sleeve decrease at the bottom and the sleeves are a 3/1 rib. I-cord finishes the neck and all around the sweater!!--great fun!! My conclusion to this experiment is that the Tomten pattern is extremely versatile, lending it's engineering to many stitches!! Thank you EZ--your genius stirs the creativity within us…


The horizontal/vertical cardigan experiment is finished!!

Posted on July 10, 2010 at 8:26pm 12 Comments

The torso was knit horizontally to make the vertical rib/stripes, an icord was added to the top and the pickup was done on that. The sleeves were grafted and added for the 3/1 rib and the raglan shaped the top. An icord was worked around the outside of the cardi, and made the buttonholes. The sweater is reversible, side 1 has a raised stripe more visible and more subtle top, the side 2 cardi has a more subtle stripe and more visible rib ridge on top!! Wonder if this would work for a… Continue

The Germaine Stitch Tomten is finished!!--another Happy Dance!!

No problems at all--except--garter st. was not a good choice for the trimmings on the combination lace and cable stitch by Barbara Walker. I realized that the lace would stretch and the cable would draw in, so thought that the garter st. would be forgiving--It took some steam to convince it not to wave--guess that a rib might be a better choice?? any thoughts on the subject. Anyway, I'm practicing moderation, but got it completed, and the next experiment is underway!!--horizontal vertical… Continue

The dye goes on!!

I dyed 4 KP sockblanks with Jacquard--following their directions--worked great. The colorblock sweater I had in mind took 3 whole sock blanks--it's a very strong contrast--the question is to over dye or be happy!! It's your vote!!

I considered the nalgar when I finished up my DD's sweater HERE- but went with one of the other more 'feminine' versions instead.  :)

Oh, great!  Had to do a search if you had any pictures out there yet, found your response that it came in the Rav thread.  :)  So happy for you!!

Yes, mostly sun-dyeing with kool-aid.  I've been thinking about throwing some in the crock-pot though.  :)  I haven't used Jacquard dyes yet, but I will probably 'graduate' to that at some point. 

There is a group on Ravelry for Sheep Shed lovers.  I like to see what others are doing with the wool they order from there.  Ravelry seems like such a huge place to me, but the Sheep Shed people are very down to earth.  I like that.  :)  The group is here if you want to take a look.

heehee!!  So glad I could help!  :)  I really think the Sheep Shed stuff is very reasonably priced for what you get!  I love it!  I think spinning is good for you... :)
