Good Afternoon!! Again, it's been more than a week since I posted ... must be all the Christmas rush making time fly by. I am now done all the knitting projects I wanted to get done for Christmas gifts. I knit two pairs of bug mitts and a pair of fingerless gloves for my niece and nephews. I am not going to post pictures in case my sister happens to visit here! I absolutely love how the fingerless gloves turned out and am thinking I will make myself a pair over the holidays.
I have always disliked knitting in the round with 3 or 4 needles. I could never seem to get the joins to look good. They were either too tight or too loose. I had been hearing lately of using two circular knitting needles and found these directions. She has wonderful pictures and the instructions were easy to follow (at least for me LOL!). I have been designing a child's size sweater knit in one piece and when I came to the sleeves decided to give this technique a try. It works very well and I love how the joins look ... I can't even tell where they are!
The yarn for this sweater I bought off eBay from the JOJOLAND store. She has a wonderful selection of DK 100% wool and sock weight 100% wool. This sweater is in colour M10 and uses the yarn doubled. The baby booties that I felted (see previous post) use this yarn as well but in a different colour.
