For Sara Katsan

Here is the Faggot Diamond Pattern from Mary Thomas's Book of Knitting Patterns (1943).

Is this close to what you are looking for? I think your sample has chain/traveling stitches that may cross differently at the top of the diamond but it is definitely close.

what do you call this type of patter? any clues ?

Hi guys,

Its been a long time since I knit! and I need to do this project to make some sleeves for a costume. This, or something similar is what I want, but I am feeling dumb that I can't figure it out. Any one know what this, or some similar patter, is?

Any help is appreciated.

A different provisional cast on method

Hello Gents! I am currently working on a project that requires a provisional cast on (PCO). I haven't knit a lot of items that use a PCO, but when I have I've used the crochet chain method. This works pretty well and has the nice feature of a sturdy and easily unraveled PCO edge.

Blizzard

Well guys, they are called for blizzard conditions here in the Western Fingerlakes area of New York State. Accumulations between eighteen and twenty inches of snow. At least here in Waterloo New York. I'll be staying in and finishing up a cardigan, and starting some Brethren socks in red yarn. I have all that I need.....chocolate. Terry

Finished hat.

I finished the hat last night and worked in the ends so that it is reversible. I'm very pleased with how it knit up and it serves to keep the Wyoming wind off my head.

Penguin Sweater KAL, anyone?

Hi guys, I recently got an email from an old friend. Knowing that I'm a knitter, she included a cool link about a need for penguin jumpers (sweaters) at Phillip Island Nature Parks in Victoria, Australia. They use them for penguins that are affected by oil in...

Stash Busting pattern

This is a pattern I copied from someone that had photocopied it from somewhere else -- you know how it goes. There were a few notations on the pattern as some people tend to do, so I had to try and clean those out. It's a relatively simple pattern, and you can adjust size by using different weights of yarn and appropriate needle sizes.
