Well thank you for asking. Right now a couple of us are working on a Racer Back Top from a Vogue Knitting Magazine pattern. So we are trying to work it out as we go along. No pics yet, except for swatches over on that page - you can take a look if you like. Also please feel free to show us your toques. Would love to see them! Will look forward to hearing from you. Also Sharon may have a pic pretty soon of her lacy socks. So we'll be checking here to see them.
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
Thanks for your post. I can see where you would be very busy taking care of all the necessary details involved with your job. For some reason your pic is not loading. I don't know if it's a gliche or what. Does it show up for you? I don't want to miss it. Hope you are enjoying your evening. .
Beautiful, gorgeous!! I love them all!
Your set is very beautiful! Are you keeping them or is it for a present?
I am excited about your next projects on the go.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!!
Patience, persistence and love are the main ingredients for wonderful knittings.
No, we haven't finished our projects yet. But If you see, there is a post above yours from Wendy. She has posted a very beautiful set of Snow White and the seven dwarves. She is a magnificient knitter. All the dolls she has showed to us are so beautiful. You can search backwards in this thread and see all her work.
Looking forward to seeing your garment's pic soon!
Enjoy your knitting!
Hi Zass, Yogama, Merlich ,etc
Many thanks for all your kind comments on my dolls,
I am not sure what I will do with them as yet. I just make them and wait and see if anyone wants to buy them. I dare say that many of them will end up in Charity shops. At the moment I am trying to get at least one doll/set of everything I have made before, in between my various projects.
Here in this little village where I live they have a craft show every year between August and October, I would like take my dolls to this.
Yogama, Looking forward to seeing your lacy socks!
That craft show sounds great!! You can meet a lot of people there besides showing your dolls!! I am sure they will fall in love with you and your work!!
What a wonderful opportunity!! I hope you can benefit of it.
Send you XOXOXO!!!
Love the slippers! In answer to your question, I have been busy with the needles. I have been taking it easy though, the tendonitis is acting up a bit. Just finished up a pair of socks for a friend of mine for her birthday in June.
I finally got all the seed pearls for Angel's gloves and I am going to sit down tomorrow and start threading them onto the yarn so I can do a sample swatch for the gloves and make sure I get them sized to fit her. Here is a pic that should get a laugh out of some of you. This is the great ball winding project. I hand wound 8 hanks of lace weight yarn into working balls.
To all the fellow knitters in the group who asked, Here is a pic of the shawl I will be making for my daughter for her wedding. I will probably cast it on tomorrow. And as luck would have it, the spring 2013 issue of Interweave Knits has an excellent article on making Estonian Lace Shawls which I will copy and keep in the knitting bag for reference.
YES you should take them to the craft show. What a good way to expose your talent and perhaps sell them. Could you sign up for or reserve a booth for yourself and your dolls?
Thank you. I'll picture you loading the seed pearls onto your yarn. At least it'll give your tendonitis a rest. Well it sure looks busy around there! Happy knitting.
That shawl pattern is gorgeous. I think from the pic of your yarn, it'll be perfect. It looks like it has a very slight sheen or reflection. Really beautiful.
I just had a thought pop into my head about your dolls. What about selling them from a hospital gift shop?
You are right, the yarn does have a slight sheen to it. It is the silk in the yarn. The yarn is Knit Picks Gloss which is 70% Merino wool and 30% silk.
I think I finally got the photo to pop up. (Hooray!) My new mantra: "technology will not get the better of me." I'm almost finished with my "stained glass" afghan. Now am contemplating what to begin next. Although I really do need to finish a few more projects that have been in the works for some time, it's too much fun not to begin something more. I love reading about everyone's projects. So many wonderful ideas with such talent!
Oh so sweet! I love your pic. He seems truly fascinated by his little friend! Glad you are making progress with your stained glass afghan. Can we see it when you finish? So glad you worked out this pic upload thing. You can "size" them as well by adjusting the numbers in the 2 boxes on the same page where you upload. That way you can get more than one pic on a page if you want to. So keep on knitting and enjoy the process!
The wedding shawl will be astonishing!! You will be very busy knitting it. The yarn you bought really suits the pattern. You have a very good taste!!
