Working on a new knitting pattern

2010-09-16 01:56:00

Today İ worked on a new knitting pattern: Belen - an unisex scarf. The stitch pattern is very easy to remember, it resembles only knit and purls stitches. And it is reversible which is very good for scarves. İ made the pdf file and now İ am looking for test knitters. İ posted a message on ravelry and İ already got a few replies. İ am pretty excited and İ hope İ would find a test knitter willing to knit it up quite quickly. Devamı

Baby knitting

Baby knitting is probably my favorite sort of project. I love knitting for babies and tiny tots. There's an almost instant gratification factor - you can see progress really quickly and for someone with the short attention span I have, that's a good thing! Here are some tips I've picked up about baby knitting: 1. Baby yarns tend to be very soft and stretchy - be aware of this when you're working as it can stretch out of shape pretty quickly if you're not careful! 2. And because of this, you may also find that you have to knit at a tighter tension than you normally would. A tip one of my baby knitting friends gave me was to knit into the back of the stitch on collars and cuffs - that way you'll get a nice tight finish. 3. If you're knitting as a gift put the ball band in with the garment when you give it to the new Mum - that way they'll know the washing instructions. 4. I find stockinette (stocking) stitch the best stitch to use when knitting baby garments as it washes brilliantly and forms a nice, tight fabric with no holes or loops for tiny fingers to get caught. 5. Although I’m a big fan of using bamboo needles for much of my knitting, I find that metal needles are best for baby knitting. They are smooth and help the yarn slip off easily, creating an even tension. 6. Got some yarn left over? Knit some mittens or booties – they don’t take up much yarn and look as cute as anything! 7. It’s absolutely vital that buttons and beads on garments for babies and children are sewn on securely – they can be choking hazards if they come off. 8. In baby knitting I always make garments a size bigger than the baby needs now – they grow so fast that you want to make sure they can get the most wear out of it. For newborns I always knit a 3-6 months size. It’s just personal preference I suppose, but I find that most of my friends who have babies are ... Devamı
