Rustic Tweed

Not sure where I am going yet with this sweater. The wool is a rustic tweed from the Queensland Collection.63% wool, 27% alpaca & 10% donegal. I'll keep the topic going and see what turns it takes.

Sock 1; Take 2

Well some time ago I started my very first sock, I felt good knowing I was going to be learning something new. During that project, as well as others following it, I was told I was…well let’s just drop that. So Sock 1; Take 1 was frogged and a new one was started.

The Brethren Sock Pattern is UP!!!

For those of you who got the pattern for being an attendee of the retreat, I will be happy to gift you a copy through ravelry so you may have it in your library and have a digital version of it. Just send me a pm on Ravelry. Also, thanks to Joe (aka Olddancer) we've got our first bit of errata. Next to the instep chart instructions it says:

Shetland Lace vs. Estonian

Well, I'm falling into the world of lace more and more (I still blame MMario) and I'm trying to tease apart the different styles of lace. Currently, I'm looking at Shetland and Estonian lace. My current thinking is that the differences appear to be in regional styles rather than stitch patterns. However, I'm not sure.

My next Christmas present

As I am retired and on a meager fixed retirement income I am forced to make my presents this year(I like that though). I am now making a Irish hooded scarf with pockets for my wife. Color is a Denim Heather.

First sweater ... huh?

Hi all,

So, when I was back in Seattle, I was talking to a very nice guy in a yarn shop about various things, and somewhere mentioned that I wanted to try my first sweater but was trying to get up my courage. He told me "if you've done socks, you already know most of the techniques."

Well maybe, but construction is full of surprises!
