8 Double Knitting eXtreme

To play podcast click on link : Episode 8 - Double Knitting eXtreme

Topics include:

1. Gallery

2. Double Knitting eXtreme

3. Crazy Lace Cardigan and Knit to Flatter

4. VKN - Virtual Knit Night

5. Quilting

Rapture - Ravissement (2010) Watercolour

✓ Double Knitting - Gadget bag, 1 sock and a hat

✓ Crazy Lace Cardigan and Knit to Flatter

✓ VKN - First Knitting event

✓ Quilting - patent pending ruler

Ariana is back and this time shows you a watercolour painting Rapture - Ravissement 2010 in her Gallery.

Double Knitting is not for the faint of heart. Still lots of fun and Ariana shows you her Gadget bag and her first sock which may end up suffering from SSS - Second Sock Syndrome. The Atyria hat needs help. Double Knitting with cables, increases and decreases results in a warm hat but prompts the question: Did you follow a pattern ? Ariana might take a break to recover from double knitting before going ahead with the next project which will be double knitting with 3 yarns. 

The Crazy Lace Cardigan gets re-swatched with a new batch of vintage wool given to Ariana by fellow quilter Janet. Yep, quilters are knitters too. Can Knit to Flatter be combined with the Crazy Lace Cardigan. Stay tuned.

Ariana adds some quilting news on the progress of her classroom testing of the patent pending quilting ruler. Are knitters also quilters ?

A once in a lifetime trip to Berlin, Germany re-ignites Ariana’s knitting skills when she knits her first pair of socks during her visit to mom’s birthplace, Berlin, Germany. We begin the Celtic Cables class by Carol Feller on Craftsy.com. Ariana talks about her approach to each class which begins with a stash crash at mom's house. This time she is using Irish yarn which was a gift for mom from one of her friends at least 20 years ago. The yarn is power drilled from hank to yarn ball. Ariana uses the StitchMinder via iPod to help her keep track of her reverse knitted two arms at the same time of the celtic cable cardigan pattern by Carol Feller.
