Ye Olde Knitting Machine

Having been under the weather for a couple of months, and not able to stand to quilt, I asked Daryl to bring out my knitting machines and supplies. I opted for an easy project, a poncho and hat, to which I added a center cable and "twists" using an easy technique I picked up from www.knittersedge.com. A few months ago, we had purchased a steam machine and it makes steaming and blocking fun!  Posted by Picasa

Adding Lace

Sockotta yarn, which is wool, cotton and nylon also knits up nicely. I tried something a little different by adding a lace pattern from one of Barbara G. Walker's books. Posted by Picasa
