I am a knitter.
I am not a seamstress.
I know a fair amount about yarn and knitterly things.
I don't know a whole lot about sewing, but I can do it.
This being said...thank you to a couple of my readers for delurking and letting me know that it is not a bobbin problem but a top thread problem. All I had to do was rethread the machine! I owe you $50!
The sock creature thanks you.
Now...a little inspiration for Christmas knits.
Firstly, check out the Holiday Issue of Interweave, if you haven't already. Gifts...yes. For me...yes. Love many of the patterns featured!
Some socks that are possibilities...spiral boot socks, clessidra knee socks, father and son socks, diamond and waffle socks and winding cable socks.
Hat patterns I have been eyeing...short row hat, cap karma (brooklyntweed...he could knit a garter stitch swatch out of crappy yarn and his photo will make me want to knit it!), foliage hat, and the shedir cap.
Have you seen these snugs? I must make them!
I know it is the most simple scarf (Jared again...just go look at the photos!) but I really love this noro scarf. If not for a gift, then for myself!
Lastly, some mittens.
Do you have any great accessory patterns to share?
