Lacy little scarf?
I got a teeny pattern from my Rowan Club membership, including two balls of Kidsilk Haze, which allegedly will go far enough to knit a small scarf. Possibly not for bean (), but if I rootle out the pattern this weekend would you like a copy?
I am dozy, for some reason I read mohair for cashmere (the way my two get through clothes at the mo I am most knitting garments in the yarn equivalent of liner hawser ) but I will send you the pattern anyway beansmum.
I'll CAT you Monday once I have unearthed it from my "to knit" stash at the back of the wardrobe
Marina, could I be cheeky and ask for a copy too...sshhhhh... I have so much odd wool, and I am trying to work my way through it. I have made quite a few little kiddies plimsol type bags, but it seem such a shame using some of the more luxurious wools on bags!!
If you don't mind, please email me on dinglecards at yahoo . co. uk.
No problem Dingle , I have been meaning to CAT you about my failure to locate anything nice for your dd due to the shop closing down at Cite d'Europe. Batters will confirm I let her down too
But also got no clothes for ds and dd unless you count a vile pair of Lucky Luke socks in the Carrefour...
Really, no worries Marina! Thank you so much for looking anyway. Amelia is doing really well with her potty training, and I am looking on the brightside that she won't be nappies for ever. She is wearing her little school dresses with a little pair or ordinary knickers over her pull ups. (whispers...would you like to see her???I have loaded some pics online!)
You knit with beads beansmum? I want to knit with beads!! Is it really fiddly?
I once knitted a really sweet wee hat for my mum with rowan kidsilk haze but it ended up fitting my dd (at the time about 6 months old!) Honestly, I have no idea how it happened, it was an 'adult' pattern and I used the right materials. I very nervous about using it again now!
it's not fiddly at all, you thread the beads onto the wool before you cast on, then when you want to place a bead in the pattern you just slide it up and push it up next to the stich on the needle. Does that make sense?
I always end up making things smaller than they should be, you just have to watch your tension and maybe use bigger needles
Yeah that makes sense, will give it a go, if I ever finish the two jumpers I am doing!
I don't think it is my tension that is the problem though as I generally knit quite loose. And this hat was about quarter the size it should have been! It was so bizarre, still have the pattern and sure did everything right!
