Look what I made!  - 
 
First #FO of 2016. Dish towel, pattern from Knit Picks, it was posted free a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't sure how the variegated yarn would work up but I'm pleased with the result. After I block it I will gift it to my daughter for her woodsy theme bathroom. It's obvious where the skeins ended and started but it's just a hand towel

Cute hat, might have to join in
 
Join me in a knit-a-long and let's turn yarn into this! Its a color & cable hat. Today I'm picking colors and casting on.

Since the invention of knitting 1000 yrs ago (probably) we've been joining in knit-a-longs. Because then we may actually finish something.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one person from Michigan has died and about a dozen others were sickened from a listeria outbreak linked to Dole salads.

Found this!  - 
 
Browsing through Pinterest this morning I came across this pattern. To me it's more of a guide, you plug in certain numbers, check your gauge and determine if you want a pullover, cardigan, etc. Thinking I might give this a try with some yarn I have in my stash.

Forensic Knitting in Archaeology
Reconstructing 16th Century Socks
Knitting the world together in yet another fun way...through time!

When Spanish Conquistador, Frances Pizzarro, landed in Peru to conquer the Incan empire, he didn't realize he was bringing them a gift.  Thankfully, he remembered to pack his socks.

Carrie Brezine, a Harvard educated anthropologist specializing in Andean Textiles (wish she was on G+) tells us the story in the latest issue of Piecework magazine.   Excavations at Magdalena de Cao Viejo reveal remains of knit stockings typically worn by Spanish soldiers, made with European wool.  Further into the excavation, remains were found of stockings in a similar pattern knit with materials indigenous to the Andes, cotton and Alpaca.  Thus, we can begin to piece together the introduction of #knitting  to the New World.   While the native Peruvians weren't knitters (yet), they were used to using weaving techniques and amazing color combinations, which show up in their version of the stockings found later at the site.

The Peabody Museum provides more info on this excavation on their website here:  http://peabody2.ad.fas.harvard.edu/mcv/Textiles.htm

The best part?   The pattern was reverse-engineered and can be found on page 15 of the magazine!  You can pick up a copy on the Interweave site here:  https://www.interweave.com/needle/piecework_magazine/

Enjoy your day, Everyone! - Christina.

There has been a overwhelming amount of spam posted to the community lately. In trying to delete those posts, you don't even see them, there may have been a couple deleted by accident. If that happened to you, I apologize and invite you to repost your project. We love to see what you are working on and your completed projects!

Haven't been on here a lot lately although I do check in on what you are doing. Here are some of my latest finished projects. 2 pair of slippers, just need the leather soles sewn on and finally my #rosetrellis shawl vest is done. Vest still needs blocking. One more pair of slippers almost done, just have to sew together and add sole. Casting on another shawl in Christmas colors, hoping to finish by next Wednesday for a Christmas dinner party. Why do I do this to myself??
