Quick Finish - Scrabble Bag

The Scrabble Bag was a quick knit but an enjoyable one. In addition to the cable fun, is the i-cord. It was much easier to make than I thought it would be and I think it turned out pretty well. The cabling is on both sides. I think I will make another one using some entrelac stitching and put a Scrabble tile on each side.

new to knitting

Thank you for letting me join. I am new to knitting and have not completed any projects at this time. I am looking forward to the inspiration from all of you.

Corydon man's sweater published!

Check out my new pattern, Corydon, in the latest issue of Knitter's Magazine! It's a comfy pullover and was really difficult to send away... I might have to make another for myself!

You can find it on ravelry here:

Vest - the final step and a few questions.

The ribbing is finished on the arm holes and all I have left is the neck ribbing which brings me to a question - I don't know, maybe it doesn't matter but where should I start picking up stitches - at the shoulder seam? Also, because I'm a swimmer my chest is larger in proprtion to my shoulders than the average guy - not really attractive but it is what it is.

Needed: Fairisle Sleeveless Vest Patterns!

I am earnestly searching for fairisle (stranded) sleeveless vest patterns. I want modern patterns because the vintage ones don't fit. I am hopeless at adapting patterns with a repeat design so I would like to go the easy route and just buy new patterns.

Can anyone help here?
