I'm now a complete yarn snob. I was on a cruise last week in Alaska and succumbed to the allure of two 1 oz. balls of qiviut...at $93 per ball!!!

Well, I did not get as much knitting done as I would have liked while on vacation, but I did fairly well for a beginner. I got about 2 and 2/3 dish cloths done.
I just finished this spiral scarf. Its all done with short rows - my first attempt at wrapping and turning. It turned out to knit up pretty quick.
just move along, please. No loitering.
A silly pattern; based on a photo someone sent be via e-mail one day.
My name is Andres , I usually go by Andy or Crafty Andy.
I've finished the 1940s vest (I don't like it), and I've finished my mohair and silk circular scarf (I love it) and now I'm taking on my biggest challenge to date: socks.
Have finally taken the time to learn to photo and post!
An extra entry as the photo of these didn't attach yesterday.
I'm going to start an afghan for a friend who just bought a new house. The measurements are 48x60 and as a guy who is 6' tall, 60 inches just isn't long enough for an afghan.
