What do you like to watch/listen to while you knit?
I get most of my knitting done when I’m watching really upsetting, violent, or depressing documentaries and movies. There’s nothing quite like knitting lace while mainlining Breaking Bad.
I crochet (if its ok that I put this here) usually to dub step. Makes me feel like a badass.
Crocheters are more than welcome to answer any question of the week they so choose.
I like to knit or crochet to my favourite tv show at that present time. Currently it’s Criminal Minds!
This might be a bit nerdy, but I really like listening to let’s plays while knitting! I knitted my last two hats while listening to the Game Grumps playthrough of Kirby’s Epic Yarn…Which, actually, gave me a lot of inspiration for future knitting projects~
I’m still a total beginner, so it’s a simple enough thing to listen to, while also being able to follow along with patterns and/or writing down what I’ve done so far.
I actually tend to knit while waiting for the computer to crunch turns in Civ 5. It’s a good use of time.
So, I stuffed the body of my GROOT, turns out I am making a chubby, cuddly Groot, as opposed to a stylish, stick-figure Groot.
Such is life.
Edit. I have some safety eyes that I’m not sure if i want to use or not. They’re blue, instead of plain black is the problem. Use those, embroider eyes, or go buy some black safety eyes? What do you think?
You know what would be cool? If someone went through Gravity Falls and figured out how to make Mabel’s sweaters.
Especially this one. Because it’s amazing.
I’m back from camp. >.>
….and I’m working on this bitching cardigan! My hope is that I’ll look grown-up and professional by the time my practicum/interviews come around. Scary stuff.
I’m using Wool of the Andes Icicle Heather. I’m really enjoying the depth of colour here. You’ve got a nice, neutral blue, but then there’s some complexity - hints of green and purple. Much like.
The pattern came in this book that had been on clearance. A month after I bought it, this giant list of corrections came out. Much sadness. I was hoping to have a nice, print copy of patterns for once. Now there’s pen all over it. And 3/4 of the patterns had to be changed! (They also said they weren’t re-printing)
Pattern (Non-Ravelry): link.
My sister Wants me to make this object for one of her daughters. Maybe both. Thing is, is that the pattern is pay for - and it mentions some crocheting involved. I’m very hesitant to purchase a pattern that may require skills I do not have.
Has anyone made this before?
Does anyone know of a pattern like this that I could make instead (that doesn’t threaten crochet-related doom)?
I am out at camp for the summer. I will update when/as I can.
I’m currently working on creating a pattern for Worf’s Baldric, as I cannot find a good one. Hopefully I can get the prototype done before Comic Expo’s end.
This is mainly a texture comparison (and preview). I cannot hope to get the metal round links duplicated in wool, but I can replicate the general idea. Thoughts?
I’ve taken some better pictures of my recently completed Fingerless Mitt.
It’s now up for sale on Etsy. And the pattern should soon be completed and posted (for sale) on Etsy and Ravelry.
