Rock Lobster


How could I forget to post a photo of my very loverly 100% pure cashmere mittens from daughter-who-knits?!  The pattern is in Melanie Falick's Knitting New Mittens and Gloves.

It took two skeins of Cape Cod Fiber's Lobster Pot 100% pure Cashmere from my stash.  The color is Hyrangea (my favorite colourrr).  BGITWWW picked out the recycled Eileen West mother of pearl buttons.  These are so soft and warm and I wear them on the dreariest of days because they are the cheeriest.

So pretty! Great job on your cheery mittens! Nicest mittens I've ever seen.

Hi Biker Chick!
I have a good friend who is a drag racer chick. I'm making her a knit cap to wear to the night races. It's black w/ devil horns and earflaps. Here's my problem:

HOT WHEELS FLAMES, as in the Matchbox cars logo.

I want to have the "logo" flames on each side of cap. You seemed the natural person to ask. Can a chart be customized for knitting in the round?

thanx for any help...

I normally knit in the round except when doing charts! However, this link might be of help.

If you are a member of Ravelry I would also suggest that you search the forums and groups. Good luck. Hot Wheel's flame icon is a favorite of mine. THank you for commenting.
