Highly recomended by Rebecca
Yes I did and you’ve turned me into a sock junkie
Did the class with worsted (figured I could use them for keeping the tootsies warm in bed), have another worsted weight going, a sport weight, and just ordered sock yarn from KnitPicks! I never imagined they would be so much fun to do! And the strangest thing is I can only knit them continental, my guess is because I never learned to knit on the DPNs. I can do conti on regular needles but until I master it my hands tend to cramp up a bit.
A big thank you and two for your wonderful site!!
Hand-cramping really hurts! I’m not sure if this is happening to you, but a friend that I tought to knit held the working yarn very tightly, and when she’d put her RH needle into the knit stitch, she’d often forget to pull the stitch out a little before picking up the working yarn. This made her hands cramp, too.
My hands got crampy when I 1st changed from throwing to conti knitting, I assumed it was bc I was using different muscles while knitting bc it no longer happens.
Thanks for posting the link Denise! All of the patterns there are very detailed! Love them
Maybe your next design will be on 2 circs!
Thanks…Never can tell Ahhh…but I am not publishing any more, if that’s what you meant. It was fun & something that is very cool to say that I did it. I love designing and I am always doing it in some form or fashion…always will be, I hope & LOL, there’s something about socks…have LOTS of ideas for more It’s because SOCK KNITTING IS FUN :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
not publishing anymore? WHY? Are you NUTS?
Denise and Rebecca,
I assume the cramps are from changing the muscles too. Was always a thrower and the needles are held in a different position so you can pick the yarn without looking like a bird trying to take flight (which is what it felt like at first lol). But after all these years I truly prefer the conti now that I can do it. The ribbing comes out so much better. And with the DPNs I got a lot of exercise…I have never dropped a needle so many times in my life. Just glad none of my dogs or cats were around to run off with it. :oops:
Have you tried bamboo needles? I’ve noticed they don’t fall out as much.
There’s really no need to publish for me. Once was quite enough It’s really a very, very cool thing to have done & I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity, but it’s just not something I feel like I need to persue. I have fun just knitting & playing with designs (of course, i have no problem sharing anything I come up with ). Thanks for thinking I have the ability and talent to continue doing it, though…makes me feel special
:crying: But WE need you to persue it!
Oops, read it the wrong way. Thanks for saying that! I will still design and make patterns available, just not published!
