Cowl is done!

I swear I'm not the world's slowest knitter, but I have neglected this project for a bit. It is finally done though, and keeping me warm amid all these winter storms! Next project is going to be a red cabled ipad case for my AIDS Walk etsy page. Be sure to check out my previous post regarding submitting any knitwear donations :)

All my best,
Eddie

Hi all!

Socks , Socks, Socks....

I am afraid I have a new addiction! My sock drawer is now filled with socks. I have no regret either.And I am still knitting some from old stashes. Right now it is -9 with wind chill of -20. I have been wearing a pair of chunky socks I made from old stash they are great! I wear them when working out in the snow shoveling etc. Sometimes for a couple of hours.

Linen Stitch Scarf - Detail

Evening All,

The scarf is coming along nicely. Using a size US6 needle. I really like the way the color combinations of the color ways I've selected are coming together. I think my daughter-in-law is really going to like it. JRob

Another pair of socks...

So this is quite a screwup - I'd started a pair of socks for my friend Shakir way before going to the US, and got waylaid. I finally finished them up and took a picture of him wearing them but accidentally had the movie camera function on.

ET VOILÀ

The hat and socks are dried and blocked. I'm okay with how they both turned out. The only thing I would do differently with the hat is, I would take the ribbing down to 1.5 inches instead of the 2.5 inches that it is. Since I will only be wearing the hat when I'm out exercising (walking), I'm not really that concerned about it.

HAT AND SOCKS

Here's the hat I finished tonight. Just washed it and now it's blocking. Since I don't have a dummy head to block it on, I thought that the balloon would do the trick.

The socks, of course, are blocking on sock blockers. These will also be for my friend, Mark. They were finished a couple of nights ago, but have been waiting to finish the hat before I washed and blocked both projects.

More Cutesy Crap... yet Impressive Craftsmanship

Hi all,
Someone posted this on my FB-page. I must say, "I am impressed." Since I have not seen it here, I thought I would share. Each character is distinctive.

Linen Stitch Scarf

Scarfs done in the linen stitch have been popular now for a while. Rather than being knitted back and forth across the width of the scarf these patterns are knitted along the scarf's length and in the round. The middle section is 20 plain knitted stitches and when finished you cut across the mid point of this section unravel and the braid the fringe .
