Knitting and Handwork

Organized by Lise

Group Info

A group for sharing knitting projects and problems with other knitters in the Brattleboro area.

This group is Public
Knitting and Handwork


The mission of the Knitting and Handwork group is to enjoy knitting (crocheting, and the like) together with other knitters.  We can post pictures, patterns, problems and solutions.  We can share our work with the outside world or not. It's up to us.  The mission of this group, if any, is to help us all do better handwork and to promote knitting, crochet, and other needlework and fiber arts to those who enjoy nice yarn and pretty patterns, but don't knit much themselves.

Knitting Socks

Knee SocksI'm not much of a sock knitter but I do love knee socks especially here in chilly Vermont, so when I rediscovered some interesting orange, black and grey sock yarn, I decided to make some.  They are not perfect socks but they're warm and cozy (good for slightly oversized boots) and I like 'em.  The part that is less wonderful is that I haven't figured out how to do the cuffs so they stay up.  Some say you should knit the cuffs with a strand of elastic held together with your sock yarn.

Fingerless Mitts Are A Welcome Gift

For the last few years I've been making fingerless mitts for my friends in cold houses.  I had noticed that finding this particular form of handware  already made in shops was almost impossible, leading me to believe that people would always appreciate receiving a hand knit pair.  This remains true today although I have been seeing more of them in stores -- I guess someone in the retail apparel business knits.
