Here Piggy Piggy!

Well I made another yarn bowl. But this time a little different. I made a pig. LOL. I guess I am having too much fun creating these yarn bowls. I am already thinking what can I do next? Check my website out for more of my story.
Meantime take a look at the couple of pics
Happy Knitting!!

My revamp needs some tweaking - but it's getting there...

Stop Fingering My Linen

a friend asked if he could commission me to knit him a spring scarf. I already recently gave him a great scarf in autumn colors, but I said OK, not really understanding what he meant by 'commission'. I'm not a fast knitter and if he was planning to pay me by the hour, he can't afford me. (Actually he CAN afford me, but that's beside the point.)

Irregular Rib Raglan sweater

Has anyone bit into this pattern yet? It is in Loop-d-Loop. I am getting ready to shape the second shoulder and am plain stumped.

Winter projects..

A couple of Frocks finished over the Winter, and the American Beauty Rose afghan nearing it's final stages, another 15 inches and of course the tassels should complete this project!!

New Picture

I changed the photo in my profile. I like my slippers better than looking at myself. I am still smiling though. :)

Rowan Dalesman

So it has been a while since I have done anything other than a hat or a scarf and it has been even longer since I have posted anything on MWK, but I recently came across the Rowan Dalesman book last week and was struck by two of the sweater vests in there. Since I have never made a sweater I am starting with the simpler Harrison sweater before I tackle the Fairbank.

Just finished blocking a vest I made using Shetland wool that was left over from other projects. I used a 3.25 mm needle. It was knitted in the round with steeks for the the front and arm holes. I didn't bother securing stitches but just cut the steeks open and picked up stitches for the border. It was a fun and fast knit.
