Gregory: A bearded man knitting by the sea….
looks delightful! thanks for submitting.
I approve on every level.
I’ll take one to go, please.
I have been on ravelry for a very long time.
When you’re doing lace the there are a few easy things to do to keep track of the repeats, especially if you’re new to lace or just learning a pattern.
Put a stitch marker between each repeat, and find out how many stitches you need to add/subtract per repeat and count to make sure you have the right amount of stitches.
Even if your knitting is mathamatically correct you still may have messed up the pattern, which is why you need to learn how to read your knittin to visualize how it should be progressing.
Read your patterns before starting, and read each line before you start each row to make sure you have a rythm down.
Do not drink and knit lace. I cannot stress this enough.
Sit in a quiet environment. Knitting lace and talking is not a great idea. You will get lost.
Learn how to read a knitting chart. In the end it really is much easier to knit from a chart than from written directions.
Highlight each row as you’re done.
I used to be pretty into origami but I have not been able to find cheap, high volume origami paper to test out designs. My favourite type of origami is modular, which means a bunch of pieces put together.
I can sew but I have not made anything in years.
I can do all sorts of crafty things but knitting is what I’m into lately.
I usually buy my yarn online, though I do go down to A Good Yarn and see what Jenny has in now and then.
I’ve mentioned my favourite yarns in a previous post. To summarise, I like basically any yarn I’ve bought over the last couple of years that has no acrylic in it.
I have always wanted to but I’m always afraid I will not be able to deadicate enough time to the project (as mentioned before I’m bad at knitting on a deadline)
I’m kind of bad at keeping track of a lot of knitting things. I try to keep all my project information on my ravelry projects but I tend to forget to fill them out. Any pattern I print off I generally have notes scrawled all over.
