Ok wheres the tutorial!
I bought them yesterday after finishing two sewn together panel hats for my son (pictures when the batteries for my camera charge)
I got it down that with the size I'm using and the wool I'm using 5 stitches = 1 inch and a baby's head is 14-15 1/2 inches from newborn to 3 months.
So I'm doing pretty well... Very well indeed!
I sew a lot. So crazy me, I've adapted. throws away knitting patterns grabs calculator grabs sewing patterns
I can make ANYTHING now with the few stitches I know and as I become comfortable with what I know I'm picking up new things.
I know how to switch between knitting and purling now. Stupid string... Well I got it.
And I know one cast on, how to add stitches, how to take them away to get the size and shape I want.
I'm currently somewhat satisfied with this.
However I am making my two year old daughter a sweater right now. I have the front and back panels covered because it's open front so I have two front panels that will be sewn to the back one. They look great.
The wool I'm using is awesome, I have no idea what it is but it's sparkley and fuzzy and looks like red multicolor pink fur when it's put together.
What I've done for the pattern is basically knitted the panels in the shape of the panels used in a children's clothing pattern and sewn them together.
The short vest (which will be a sweater shrug) has no sleeves right now. I need two seven inch around ten inch long tubes. And I have size 4 needles that do that whole circular connected together thing.
Now how the heck do I use them?
I figured out some tricks with the double ended size 4s I have. Wicked fun the way I brought up the back to the neck line and hit it with 3 needles from two sides. I'm convinced I can make anything now. But how do I use the circular needles!
