Reading Time

A co-worker sent me an email that has an article written by his uncle. It was awesome. He said that his uncle had more article and I did a quick search to see if I could find some.

I came up with this blog:
Richard Reeb

Wow, this man is an awesome writer. I do like well written articles.

Multi-medium Hats

I have done a few machine knitted hats in multiple mediums. I am not really one for doing much in mixing different types of yarns, but these turned out pretty cute.

I mixed worsted, ribbon, eyelash, fun fur yarns with knit sections and purl sections. These were done on a Brother bulky machine with out a ribber so the seaming is just being done now.

I do want to try some of these on the looms so that I do not have to seam them. That sure is a great advantage of using a round loom over a flat bed machine. The machine is quicker, no doubt about that, but the seaming time overrides the faster time of knitting. It is not that I am slow in seaming but the mixed mediums I am handling more carefully as some are open on the sides and need special care to seam them properly.

I will be posting pictures in the next couple of days.

Red baby afghan

This is a basketweave baby afghan I made on a standard machine. I really cannot take much credit for the afghan other then learning how to use the g-carriage. That was tricky as that thing has a mind of its own.

This one was made just for this purpose, to take photos.
