Hi, I broke my wrist 5 weeks ago. I didn’t know how much knitting meant to me until this happened. Well, I get a lot of pleasure from knitting so I searched Google for knitting with a broken wrist. Apparently, there are a lot of us still knitting with this condition.
So, I continue to knit with 1 more week and my splint will be off.
I would like to know if any of you have continued to knit through injuries with the arm.
I will be ordering more yarn in the next couple of weeks and I plan on knitting more hand warmers and texting mitts for the coming seasons.
Stencilled Ballerina which has been treated and will not wash out. Hand wash only.
I created the hand-warmers because my oldest daughter is a dancer & dance teacher and I like the look of a ballerina. I enjoy stencilling on items. I have stencilled on socks, hand-warmers, sewing clothes etc. I have even stencilled on wood.
Hi, I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything. I am going to change that starting now.
I have been very busy since June 2014. I have been knitting every day for up to 9 hours a day. I am currently working on a pair of Tall Men’s Felted Handwarmers. The pair I’m making are for my son but I will be offering these felted handwarmers in my etsy store. I will also be making a pair of Ladies Tall Felted Handwarmers. My oldest daughter is 6 foot and my son is 6.5 feet. As well my son-in-law is 6.7 feet. So I have lots of models for my handwarmers.
My daughter says to make them with a long cuff because she is tall and doesn’t always buy tall sizes. So, 3 of her winter coats are regular size and the sleeves are not long enough for her arms length and she complained that her wrists are always exposed to the cold and wind. Anyway, I listened and will be making them as she requested.
I will post a picture once they are complete. Happy Knitting!!
Hi, I ordered and received some 100% wool so that I could make some felted products. They will be available in my etsy shop soon.
Well, I started a felted bowl. I needed to cast on 88 stitches. I did that and then I started knitting in the round and about 6 rounds down, I noticed that I had twisted my stitches. I thought, with all my experience knitting, I could still twist them!!
Needless to say, I ripped it out and started again. This time I checked after only 2 rounds. They were fine and so I continued making my bowl.
It turned out really nice and I painted some stars around the circumference. I will include pictures of 2 different bowls that I made.
