Fiber Fool » How to Use a Nostepinne It seemed there were a number of people who commented, e-mailed, or left Flickr comments yesterday that they thought my nostepinnes were beautiful but had no idea how to use one. So, today I took step-by-step photos (and a quick video) so I can show you how to use them. If you don’t have one there are many substitute options. The cheapest and easiest option is to use an empty tube. This could be from paper towels, toilet paper, a cut down wrapping paper tube etc. For larger views of the following step-by-step photos please click on the image and you will be taken to Flickr. Step 1: If you are using a true nostepinne, make a slip knot in one end of your yarn. Step 2: You have two options if you are using a true nostepinne. Step 3: Begin wrapping the yarn around the shaft of the nostepinne a bit closer to the handle than the tip. Step 4: Continue wrapping perpendicularly around the nostepinne shaft until you have 1-1.5 inches of wraps. Step 9: Continue as in step 8. That’s it!

Clever Nesting » Recycle Fabric Into Yarn Tutorial I recently did some spring cleaning and even had a yard sale. With everything that didn’t sell I’m wondering what can be repurposed and what needs donated. I decided to salvage some old sheets & made them into yarn for knitting & crochet projects. For this technique, you’ll be making one single strand of yarn from your sheet. Here are the instructions. Materials: a clean sheet, any size (can be fitted or not; I used a twin size fitted sheet) sharp scissors knitting needles or crochet hooks (optional for checking “gauge” of your yarn) Directions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

For the love of it: Women on farms take knitting online - ABC Rural Updated Women spanning four generations of the wool industry are fulfilling their love of knitting by taking part in a home grown online venture. I imagined they would tell me I had rocks in my head Annabel Scott, founder, Wool with Love "Wool With Love" is the brainchild of Yass New South Wales born and bred farm girl Annabel Scott, who now resides on her own family farm, just outside of Cootamundra. Frustrated that she could not find any woollen clothes for her young children, Mrs Scott wondered if she could empower older women living on nearby farms to knit jumpers which could be sold online to the masses. "We've got small children of our own and last year it was really hard to come across a good quality knitted jumper," she said. "We don't have anyone in our family that knits and unless you have a little craft shop in your local town they can be hard to come by." She floated the idea with some family friends in her home town of Yass and got to work.

Improv: Basic pattern for a top-down seamless sweater | Fringe Association When I first published my top-down tutorial in early 2013, I’d only been knitting for about 17 months, hadn’t yet struck on my basted knitting theory, and didn’t take much care with the tutorial photos. In the interim, I’ve published many related posts about various details of the process. And I also never imagined how popular the tutorial would be or how many countless sweaters would be knitted from it! So in 2016, I felt like I owed it an update — factoring in some deeper thinking and linking — which is now in place. (And which also feeds into the Top-Down Knitalong!) I also realized what was missing was a short and sweet outline/pattern for how to knit a seamless top-down sweater — without all the explanation and elaboration — which would be sufficient for sweater knitters who’d simply not done it from scratch before, while also serving as a gateway to the full tutorial for those who need it. I can’t wait to see what you make with this pattern and tutorial! Materials: Gauge: 1. 6.

Queanbeyan's guerrilla knitters get crafty | The Queanbeyan Age QUEANBEYAN is set for a warm and woolly makeover this October as a group of not-so-renegade residents gear up to 'yarn bomb' the town. Queanbeyan resident Lori Mancell is organising a 'yarn bomb' which will see parts of the town covered in knitted creations. Photo: Kim Pham. Public artworks and outdoor structures will be be covered in colorful displays of knitted or crocheted wool for a limited period as part of the 'yarn bomb' The project, titled 'The Great Queanbeyan Stitch Up', is set to coincide with the Queanbeyan River Festival on October 17. Queanbeyan local Lori Mancell is heading the community project and said they were looking at sites including the Sensory Garden. She estimates they need a minimum of 175 metres of knitted material to cover the traffic thoroughfare. "I wanted to create something happy, fun, warm and fuzzy. "And I thought it would be a fun way to integrate myself into Queanbeyan, that's why I started this project." "I need your squares, I need your stitches.

maria carlander: små vågor Här är de tillslut, med mönster och allt. De små vågmössorna.Jag tycker så himla mycket om dem! Mönster Garn: Egentligen kan du använda vilket garn som helst med stickor som passar ihop, bara anpassa hur många maskor du lägger upp för den storlek du vill ha. Jag har använt kampes tvåtrådiga ullgarn (det gula och röda) och så ett grått järbo sockgarn för att jag råkade ha ett ensamt nystan sånt hemma. Stickor: Se ovan. Storlek: Den lilla passar ungefär 1-6 månader, och den stora 3-4 år. Det är enkelt att anpassa storleken på mössan, vågmönstret upprepas över 8 maskor så bara lägg till eller dra ifrån 8/16/24 etc maskor för att ändra storlek. Resåren är gjord över en upprepning av 3 maskor, så eventuellt behöver du öka eller minska någon maska efter resåren för att få antalet maskor till jämna 8-tal. Instruktioner: Lägg upp 81(96) maskor med färg 1, fördela på fyra strumpstickor och sticka resår *2rm, 1am* i 8 varv. Fortsätt med slätstickning i färg 2 till mössan mäter 15(18) cm. Klart!

SO MUCH YARN, SO LITTLE TIME!: Socktoberfest feature: The Latvian Twist Cuff How to make a Latvian Twist cuff. I think this is a beautiful detail on socks, and would look equally as lovely on gloves or a hat. For this particular project, I am using 3 colours and a knit 4 twist repeat. You could use whatever colour combination and make your twist longer with more stitches knit inbetween, or shorter with less stitches knit inbetween. The cuff is worked back and forth on long needles (or circs) then switch to your double pointed needles or magic loop and join in the round. Cast on with CC1 (contrast colour)With main colour, knit 2 rows. Now, using main colour knit 4 stitches (this number can be whatever you want, in this gauge and for this particular pattern, I am using 4 stitches.) Now rotate your left needle counterclockwise around your work, one full turn... and end back at your knitting position. Continue knitting with main colour. Complete the steps across the entire row and voila! Latvian Twist complete!
