Have you heard of these new needles..
Well not so new I believe. One of my customers from work has ask my over two years ago if we sell knitting needles that bend in the centre and you only work with 3 needles she said…and if I have knit with them yet…?
Unfortunately at that time I had to say “NO” to both of her question….smiles, this would not be the case today.
As of today I own a set on my own. Today I bought a 2,5mm FlexiFlips needle from Serenity Knits See what I have worked up so far the cuff of two socks…The ladies indicated it is just like knitting with straight needles. Agree, but really short straight needles. I think this would be perfect for a project on a plane where one has to make sure your not poking the person beside you..smiles.
My thoughts are; my absolute favorite needle to knit socks would be the magic loop then comes the FlexiFlips and my least favourite one would be working with 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
The FlexiFlips are truly a great solution if you not a fan of the magic loop. Great to put the knitting down too and not having to worry of loosing stitches , though keep an eye on that 3rd needle ..smiles. I was knitting away ……and being used to knitting with my magic loop let go of the needle at the end of the row to flip to other side….well that was my 3rd needle now hahah for me the needle ended up on the floor….just something to be aware off.
So far I like the FlexiFlips though…
The colours in this wrap are just perfect for this pattern and guess what I used up all kinds of my left-over scarp yarns…well not really scrap yarn as it is all so wonderful and we never have scrap yarn if you are thinking like me…
I always tend to think what can I make with this little bit of yarn before I go to my perfectly full skeins that are just waiting to be use for
“THAT PERFECT PROJECT”
So if you are like me then you saved up many PERFECTLY amazing yarn and use up the left-over yarns… smiles ….
I did say that I am not going to able to knit up all this yarn and wear it before I am not here anymore….well I decided to start using my So Amazing yarns and knit up something gorgeous. Even If I have to give it to an appreciating person that would wear it….so ok enough of this chabbering…lets get knitting… and designing my next project for January issue….off to work I go.
But here is the info for this fun wrap ….totally love it.
Coffee Shop Wrap by Alexandra Tavel
and the yarn is the best I have to say …smiles my own KnitSwissYarns and all in Fingering 100% Superwash Merino Wool as I said all bits and pices …and needle size 4mm just really love that lose drap to the wrap.
What am I talking about? You may ask your self…..well it is that the original pattern …
yes a knitting pattern smiles….
“The Joker and the Thief ” is all worked up with many fun and wonderful colours ,gorgeous for sure.
Leave it up to me though,I wanted to see how this pattern by Melanie Berg would look in just one colour. My KnitSwissYarns Fingering Merino Silk I used for this pattern is a very light tone on tone and in the right light will have a hint of purple, though the may colour is dark gray.
Loved the pattern and the distinct row of the 8 stitches add a definite interest to this shawl design. I truly enjoyed knitting this shawl up for my friends Ursi back home…..we enjoyed a truly fun time together in September on our Rhein River holiday.
With excitement and happiness can I tell you that my latest pattern called
has been published and is available for you too to knit know.
As you all probably have been noticing in all my latest patterns there is always a cable pattern somewhere knit into the design.
You guessed right if you said “she loves cables”
The Eggli Vest has also been knit with my own yarn
5-7 skeins of Sport Weight depends on the size you are knitting it. Yarn only sold directly through contacting me here on the blog or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pattern is available in several sizes. Eggli Vest
The “Eggli Vest” has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.
As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:
“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”
Pictures have been taken by Carla “A Needle Pulling Thread” for this magazine…..
Carla “I had a lot of fun too…;-)))”
