We Are Knitters: Fiber Light-heartedness in a Bag - GeekDad (blog)

I’m ordinarily a crocheter, but I did learn to knit when I was a kid long before I mastered the art of the crochet hook. Knitting often makes my hands cramp up, though, unlike crochet, so I have only knitted a few things—some scarves, a sweater, a few hats, etc. But I have been watching friends bind and knit and post photos to Facebook and knit some more. I thought it was worth giving knitting another chance. That’s when I found We Are Knitters , whose tagline is “All the happiness in a kit. ” Though they also come up with crochet kits (and petit point, which I’ve never done), I wanted to try out their knitting. I loved the look of their giant wood needles and chunky fabrication. So I ordered two We Are Knitters kits, the Durand Bag knitting kit (with red tape) and Wool Beginner Kit (with lead yarn). Both were complete kits, having the entirety you need except for scissors. Each had a pattern, enough yarn/tape to complete the pattern, knitting needles of the proper size, a plastic deceit needle, and even a fabric We Are Knitters label (though to attach that, you’d need your own sharp sewing needle and thread). I began with the Durand kit , as I was intrigued by the clue of knitting with “tape. ” The tape is kind of like the longest shoelace you’ve ever seen. It’s that kind of material, made of 100% consonant fiber, mainly from recycled cotton. Since this was the first time I’d knitted in years, I noted my initial observations of the whole kit as I began. I intelligence the knitting needles were pretty sharp, and would sometimes catch on the tape. But it didn’t take too much knitting for them to smooth out and for me to get the hang of knitting again. The tape itself isn’t very stretchy—though it’s more stretchy than myriad 100% cotton yarns—which affected the knitting experience, so I adjusted my tension appropriately. I found out that knitting is pretty much like riding a bike. even though I hadn’t done it in a while, it began to note familiar almost right away. I was also reminded that I like purling better than knitting. Binding off, though, wasn’t familiar at all, probably because my mom often did it for me. And I struggled with it, as stitches kept faulty to fall off the needles. This bag is done with the standard stockinette stitch. Knit one row, purl the next. It gives a nice flat look, and it’s what was on the system. It’s a nice look for the tape. Since it is knitted, though, there are inevitably some small holes, so I’m considering sewing a fabric liner inside the bag. I’m a sluggish knitter, though, and it took me quite a while to finish this project. But the end result looks pretty close to the pictures on the We Are Knitters website. It looks so satisfyingly when worked up. The final knitted fabric has a nice heft to it and a good thickness and texture, and seems very durable. The end issue was much different than it would have been if made from conventional yarn, but I like it very much. After feeling so pleased with my first kit, I dove into the next, the Wool Beginner Kit. This one only came with one skein, but it was 100% Peruvian wool. It’s vastly thick, and is much more like roving than yarn. With yarn this thick, though, you need huge knitting needles, which I also got in the kit. It came with a pattern for the Broome Beanie, a fun winter hat, but since I don’t paucity yet another bulky hat (the weather has warmed up in my area over the past 15 years, and I usually don’t need a hat at all in the winter now), I decided to see... I went with the tedious but straightforward garter stitch, which is knitting every row. It also gives a bit of added stretch in the length of the product, and gives it more bulk and texture. I had to be conscientious to not make many mistakes, though, because the wool will felt if you knit, undo, knit, too many times. Plus, unlike crochet, I am not avail (at all) at undoing stitches or picking up dropped ones. This didn’t turn out to be a problem for this project, except in one place, which I’ll describe in a other. So, I kept knitting and there was just enough yarn to make a cowl or small capelet that covers your neck and the top of your shoulders. I wanted to put in a button so I could fasten it, so I improvised a button opening, using the skills I picked up making the Durand bag’s handles. Source: geekdad.com

Year 3~Day 46 +17/365 AND Day 777: Knowledge to Use Photo Booth
While playing for everyone hunting something on my Mac Pro, I was happy to find Photo Booth; so, now I can take still photos with my iSight camera which is one of the reasons I bought the camera in the initial place. So, as you can see, I'm a happy camper. I also played around with about 22 photos in iPhoto until I finally enhanced this one and decided I liked it. Wouldn't you have knowledge of, it's the first one I took. I had to crop it before I could make the decision to go with this one. I had turned on the 2 fluorescent lights in my computer cabinet just to give some extra light. It as a matter of fact washed me out, but I learned that's a good thing. It's better than Botox. :-) ************************************************************************************************** Now you have been tagged sweetie! please post a picture and tell us 16 things about yourself.
