I knit this stocking flat A) because I don't enjoy knitting in the round andB) because I think it gives greater flexibility in working fairisle and other intarsia designs. I tend to work it on double pointed needles because during heel shaping you need to switch from working one side to the other. You can knit it on regular needles but slide the work across onto a second needle at appropriate time. Apart from the stocking top it is worked in stocking stitch (knit on right side and purl on reverse) Materials:oddments of yarn. Cast on 25 sts, **(27 if knitting one of the stranded designs charted below)rows 1 - 3: knitrow 4: (right side) begin pattern from charts below (if required)work a total of 14 rows of pattern ending with a wrong side row. Start at the bottom of the chart for the pattern charts Heel shaping:I like to use different coloured yarn to accentuate heel. row 51: purl Making Up: Cut work from the ball leaving a long end for sewing up.

Woven Finger-Knitting Hula-Hoop Rug DIY Here we go! I’m so excited to kick off this series of finger-knitting projects. For the first project, B proffered his largest ball of finger-knitting for us all to try weaving a rug! This project is super-fun and easy to do. The rug was made on a hula hoop loom, using an old t-shirt for the warp and a massively huge ball of finger knitting for the weft.

Free Pattern: Crochet Bow and Ribbon Baby Hat I have a confession to make: close on the tails of my yarn addiction is my ribbon addiction. It’s mostly fueled by a discovery several years ago of a RIBBON FACTORY in Hagerstown, MD from where I used to live in Virginia. The possibilities of ribbon decor are endless, but not the price – $5 for 10 yards at your local big box hobby store? No thank you. But, BUT… the Berwick ribbon factory gives their castoffs, remnants, and extras a very honorable resting place in the attached outlet store, where you can find 100 yards of 1″ grosgrain for – wait for it – $2. I know, right??

Crochet School Sorry I've taken so long to post this very last post of the crochet school series. Would you believe me if I said I don't want it to end? haha That's not the real reason, although it is a little weird to be writing the last crochet school post (for now). I've just been busy designing new patterns and crocheting my butt off for the craft show I'm in next month, Deluxe. I was also waiting for all of you to have time to put in questions you want answered in this post.

Carol Bristol Designs » Bag Patterns #2 The Fling Bag Small Fling H / 8″, W / 12″, D / 3″ 440 yds worsted yarn Large Fling H 11″, W / 13″, D / 3″ 560 yds worsted yarn Top Tech Tips – the perfect crochet circle You know the score. You’ve been making crochet circles the same way since I Don’t Know When, but they are never quite right – the seam, having to smooth out the corners… I’ve been trying to find a way of improving on the basic crochet circle where you close off each round with a slip stitch. This is easy to work and easy to count, but the slip stitch at the end of the round creates a visible seam, and you also need to stagger the increases to stop the ‘corners’ becoming obvious.

Materials List 7 Apps to Help Anyone Improve Their English Grammar In a world of spellcheck and texting abbreviations, few people want to take the time to learn about subjects, objects, and dangling modifiers. Besides, computers can fix our sentences for us. However, as anyone who’s suffered an autocorrect embarrassment knows, computers don’t always get it right. Language is a human tool and requires the insight of human minds. Double Knitting - Knitting Community Double knitting is the exception to many knitting rules. You can double knit a stockinette scarf, and it will lay flat instead of curling. Color knitting will be reversible, showing a negative of the image on the back of the work instead of floats.

architectural academic crochet This is one of my recent projects. Just to show that I can crochet something else, not just hyperbolic planes. Since there is a crochet in the title of my blog I should write about it too. Especially because recently one of my friends complained that my blog is too academic, too mathematical, and too serious. I think he meant too boring, just was polite not to say that to me directly. Renaissance art Renaissance art is the painting, sculpture and decorative arts of that period of European history known as the Renaissance, emerging as a distinct style in Italy in about 1400, in parallel with developments which occurred in philosophy, literature, music and science. Renaissance art, perceived as a royalty of ancient traditions, took as its foundation the art of Classical antiquity, but transformed that tradition by the absorption of recent developments in the art of Northern Europe and by application of contemporary scientific knowledge. Renaissance art, with Renaissance Humanist philosophy, spread throughout Europe, affecting both artists and their patrons with the development of new techniques and new artistic sensibilities. Renaissance art marks the transition of Europe from the medieval period to the Early modern age.

Granny Square pattern, with pictures (scene one, take two) Edit #2 (late November 2006): I've noticed on several forums that a lot of people are using my rectangle granny square pattern. Seen the comment that people are worried about the long sides of the afghan narrowing while the corners on the short ends stick out. This is perfectly normal. Once your afghan starts getting bigger the weight of the afghan will make things even out. Barbie Night Outfits & Lingerie Miss B.
