OMG so pretty! I love it!
WOW! Its beautiful!!! I've never had the patience for knitting. I can crochet all day long, but coudln't ever really get knitting figured out. Maybe I should try again... :) Really! Its GORGEOUS!
I have a hard time with crochet because I'm such a tense person. I just crochet in tight little circles with way too much force.
knittinghelp.com is an awesome free resource.
I'm tense too, which is why I have a hard time knitting... the stitches get so tight after a while I end up having to unravel it and start over. Never had that problem with Crochet, but it could be the way I hold the yarn... hmmmmm....
It takes several attempts at knitting to get the tension right. Just remember, you should never ever pull with your loose yarn and your hand should just guide the yarn. The even stitches aren't made by pulling tight against the needle, but rather by making the same motion. Once I practiced a bit with that on my mind, it made my knitting much looser.
I bought the yarn but I haven't even started that shawl yet.
Thanks! It is super soft.
It looks quite beautiful! And very soft.
The yarn was way too expensive, but I just love how soft and warm it is. Let it snow, I say!
Thanks! It feels good to finally finish it after a whole year.
you know, if you ever wanna stitch n bitch, let me know..i have a friend down south and we are trying to get one started!!!
yay! i love how it turned out! reversible scarves are the best. Now, there is no DB cashmere silk. Is that the alpaca silk?
You know? I bought it so long ago that I can't remember *blush* It took me a long time to get this scarf finished. It is debbie bliss and it has silk. It's super warm.
Oooh! So pretty! I'm in awe of your mad skillz! (I can't do anything crafty-ish at all!)
Thank you! I'm hoping to start a more customized item soon. I like to make my own patterns when possible, but since this one was the 5th revision, I used someone elses' pattern (mine wasn't working out).
The cables are lovely. Nice work!
Thanks! I love making cables. They are so warm (and fun to pet).
