posts about machine knitting in general and about my knitting adventures.
I found a jumper with a two-toned effect that I wanted to replicate. I tried six different ways of combing two industrial yarns to create this effect. The sixth way was the best.
Wool winders are an important tool for machine knitters of fine industrial yarn. I have acquired five wool winders of the past couple of years. I thought it was time to compare and report on their performance for knitting with fine yarn.
If you are machine knitting with fine yarn a twisting stack that enables you to loosely twist up 2 or 3 strands of yarn is a very useful item to buy or make.
Wool winders and twisting stacks can make it easier for a machine knitter to knit with multiple strands of fine yarn.
I bought a cheap Lidl shoe carousel from my local store and then successfully used it to store coned yarn from my stash. A yarnaholic always needs good yarn organisation ideas.
Happiness is getting new yarn at sale prices. I am ready for any second wave. I have LOTS of yarn to knit with.
You know you are an yarnaholic when you build up a large stash of yarn but can't bear to actually knit with any of it. And you still have the urge to get MORE yarn. You never can have enough.
