I'd love to see Ingrid's website but I don't know how to find the link. Can someone tell me how to get to her profile or post a link for me?

I'm pretty new around here and not so sure how to get around.

Thanks!
Susan

I know! My husband and I took a look at it a few weeks back, it blew me away and all my husband kept saying was "how do you do that? How is that made? Can you make me one of those?" :roflhard: Ummm, yeah hon, I can't even knit a sock, I can really whip out one of those projects! :roflhard: :roflhard:

My question is, Ingrid, how long have you been knitting? Your things are beautiful!

My question is, Ingrid, how long have you been knitting? Your things are beautiful!

First, thank you, everyone. :aww:

I learned to knit when I was about 9--just the knit stitch, from a friend's mother. I guess I got a 'how-to' book at some point and taught myself the rest. I knit on and off as a teenager, an expectant mother, and a new mother. Then I stopped, except for the occasional baby item, for years.

I picked it up again about 3 years ago when my grandson came home wearing a sweater that his great-grandmother knit for him. I told him that I knew how to knit, he asked if I would make him a sweater, and once I got needles and yarn back in my hands, I haven't quit.

Maybe it's because I'm self-taught, or that I learned so young, I've never been afraid to try something I liked, so I went for it. Not always successfully, but :shrug: you learn with each new project.

I still love that mantis scarf. Does your son love it, Ingrid?

And i MUST make that fish sweater. I bought the book just for that, but haven't gotten around it it yet! Seeing it again reminded me how gorgeous it really is!

wow lovely work. I wish I could do colourwork but I guess its totally down to taking the plunge and doing it; learning from mistakes etc. It scares me to do colour work but WOW Ingy your stuff is stunning! Inspires me to try!

Thanks, again for the compliments! I have to point out, though, that I just follow the patterns.

Colorwork looks a lot more difficult than it is. You only use 2 different colors on a row, the charts are easy to follow, and by the time you knit one row at a time, voila!!

Ingrid, these are absolutely beautiful! They all look so meticulously made. I was wondering where you got the yarn you used for the scarf that fades from one color to the other, picture number 24. I love it!

Wow, those are amazing! I can only hope to one day do a simple solid sweater, much less all those beautiful designs!

That astoundingly beautiful yarn is SWTC Karaoke, in the Mermaid colorway. It's 50% soy silk and 50% wool. Lovely to knit with, too. I made a sweater with it which I haven't posted a picture of yet on the slide show (to be honest I kind of forgot about it) and that is lovely, too.

I was going to ask about that yarn too - its beautiful as is the sweater!
