I'm trying to block the back piece of a sweater. It's a 100% wool yarn. After soaking it in lukewarm soapy water, rinsing, and squeezing as much water out of it, I lay it out on a towel.
I want to thank all of you for the kind words, encouragement, donations of any size, and especially, for the love.
I was doing some research to find some charities for projects that I knit. I found the following sight that lists many places that would be happy to have some knitted work.
Sorry for the bad pun...
Here are two sweet purses that I knit and gave as Christmas gifts! http://loomdude.blogspot.com/2011/02/two-loom-knit-purses.html

So this little guy was worked up while avoiding the freezes in south Georgia. Kinda cute, kinda reminds me of an old fashioned farm toy. Now, if I could only knit a tractor....
Here's a rug I just finished. I found the pattern in book of knitting in the round patterns. It was rather mindless, but that's what I wanted.
