Adding to my blog.

Since I have joined. I have found many wonderful people. I have joined some groups and a knitalong. I just want to thank all the members who have gave me edge to continue and do more. One woman who is blind is looking for a site for the blind to keep knitting socks. I was very impressed. I remembered others have more problems than I. So I will count my blessings and thank all of you. Happy knitting. craftermaybe

Does anyone understand the slip and wrap stitch. It is used in a sock pattern for the heel part. I am stuck on that part. I have done other socks with different heel part. It came out fine. The slip and wrap really confuses me. I… Continue

Thanks for your coments and encouragement! The knitting is going great, when I can get to it. I've been deleting files from my laptop, trying to get my internet and other applications to work faster. --P

Carol: Very pretty! You can really see the color, even though you only have a bit done. I agree that this yarn is great! I'm trying to think of what to do with it next! Happy knitting! --Peggy

Hi, Carol! Yes, I'm ready to dig into anything! Two more weeks, but who's counting? I'm hoping I'll be able to knit with the splint. It must have been divine intervention that I took up spinning when I did. At least I can do that. This website is helping me a lot, too. It's so much fun to see and read about what everyone is doing. I'm getting some reading done, too. And I can wind yarn, organize my projects, take photos, log my stuff on Ravelry, etc. Today I took my first hike since the surgery. I'm pooped, but I had a good time. Life is good. --Peggy

Hi there! It's not too soon to join the knitalong! You should take your time and fin a pattern that feels right. We're planning to keep it running at least through the fall, so you have plenty of time, and we don't have any deadlines! Looking forward to seeing you there!

not knitting is getting old. otherwise, i'm doing fine. i'll keep posting on my progress. i don't think that knitters are prone to this kind of OA, but i think they are more upset by it than most people, lol!

Crafter: I would recommend Eliz. Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop. There is a raglan sweater pattern in it, and you can make it with any size yarn. There is a DVD that you can get to go with it. She shows you how to hold the yarn in each hand. I think it's really worth the price. I have both the book and the DVD. --Peggy

Crafter: So you're also a Peggywannabe! I have done ML once, and that was for the Hemlock Ring, and only because Kelley demo'd the circular CO that way. I do one sock at a time on two circs (instead of two at a time on one circ!), but the experience I've had with socks is:
A. The more socks you do, the easier it gets, and
B. Any circ method is easier than dpns (but don't get rid of your dpns!)
My tip for stranding is, if you can learn to hold one color in each hand, it's way easier. I use the throw method with the right hand for the color used the most, such as a background, while the left holds the color less used and moves the yarn back and forth whenever I want to catch that yarn so there isn't a strand that's too long. If you have any questions related to a specific project, just let me know. --Peggy

Good job on the socks! I did two pair two-at-a-time, and decided I like one at a time on ML the best...less time wasted flipping yarn around! :) I'm kind of slow anyway. What's next?

No, I'm not a spinner. That's something I have no desire to start right now. I have too many projects and not enough time as it is!
