No Needle Knitting

My arts & crafts blog – by Curtis Rogers

Chunky gray scarf

I finished this scarf in under a week! I used a 10mm bamboo hook and two strands of yarn: King’s Road Tweed by Knob Hill and Sublime merino. It’s difficult to tell but I used a linen stitch.

Little scarf

Today while rummaging through my stash, I came across a 75% completed child’s scarf. I think it’s moochi yarn but can’t be sure 🙂 so I spent about 45 minutes and finished it. It’s a linen stitch. 

Mini bean scarf

I made this scarf with three skeins of Sundance Krinkle Kotton in a mini bean stitch and a size J hook. I’m not sure the color but would say it’s in the salmon/peach family. 

Iris lace scarf

I’m really happy with how this scarf turned out! The yarn is beautiful and worked up great. It’s Claudia Hand painted yarns silky wool lace and I decided to use a G hook. The stitch is an iris stitch and is easy to do. You can watch this video to learn how to do it. After I finished the whole scarf I added a scalloped edge with 7 double crochets in every other side loop. Then I added the fringe with 5 strands in each empty space.

7th Annual Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat 

I just returned home from 4 great days at the retreat at Asbury Hills in Cleveland, SC. We had lots of interesting classes and took a field trip to Fletcher, NC to SAFF. We also had some great gifts from some vendors. The best gift bags were from Luna Lola which is Columbia’s newest yarn shop! I learned about color pooling too which I need to practice. I started a new project too. As usual, I bought too much yarn! Enjoy the photos!

Three strand necklace

I made this necklace for the South Carolina library associations annual conference silent auction. I hope it gets lots of bids! The money raised goes to the scholarship for diversity for the association.

Fall scarf

I was in Michael’s last month and noticed this yarn was on sale so I grabbed two Skeins and decided to make myself this nice autumn scarf in a mini been stitch. 

Light green scarf

I can’t remember the exact name of this yarn but it is a cotton linen blend. I crocheted the scarf in a mini been stitch and a size H crochet hook.
