I am Camilla and I am new here. I read in a magazine about the Dominitrix site, looked it up and have now gotten the book. I am dying to knit a whole bunch of things in there, but I have to keep my daytime job and do some studying as well...so I will have to take them one at a time. I figured I will start with an easy one, the Thin Mint Scarf and then move on to the Slink or the City Coat...
Well, about the Thin Mint Scarf, I started out with swatching the day before yesterday, and of course I got 23 stitches to 10 cm with 4 mm needles and 25 stitches with 3.5 needles. Ihave decided to go with the thinner needles so that the knitted piece will be as thick as possible (it shouldn't make all that much of a difference though). The yarn I am using is Tove from Sandnes Uld. The colors, as you can see in the photo are grey and purple which I figure will go well with my good winter coat.
Casting on felt a bit odd from the way I usually do it, but it seems it will be easier to pick up the sitches for the grafting later on this way! However knitting with two circular needles was about to drive me crazy after about two rounds, so I switched to double pointed needles, which work fine.
I will be going to a knitting café tonight, so I should get some more done then.
