Slippers and Cowl

Here are the orange slippers I made for my son. I used Patons Classic Wool Roving Bulky which I substituted for holding two strands of worsted wool...much nicer to work with. Very soft. About 4 sts/in.

The cowl is made with Malabrigo Rasta Pure Merino Wool, super bulky in Ravelry Red...2 - 2.5 sts/in. I apologize for the blurry photos, but the red is so vibrant, it is hard to photograph.

Yet another knit sculpture

Knit skeleton anyone?
It appears each bone was knitted individually.

Anyone Know Which Stitch This Is?

I bought a blanket awhile ago and it said it was made in a sweater stitch. I'm not sure what that is and can't find it. Here's a picture. It's as clear as I could get it. I don't know what I would use it for. It drapes...that's pretty much it's function, other than holding body heat well. It wouldn't be good as a sweater unless you wanted one that would probably keep growing as you wear it.

Watching the Olympics and knitting. What a great combination and getting a lot done on my daughter-in-law's linen scarf. JRob

A Brethren Sock in Progress

This is the best pattern ever for me and I am willing to make it in as many colors as I can get, lol. Hope to have this done by tomorrow. I have made this pattern so many times it has become like second nature. The heel has been turned and the gusset has been picked. Now comes the easy part.

Cowl is done!

I swear I'm not the world's slowest knitter, but I have neglected this project for a bit. It is finally done though, and keeping me warm amid all these winter storms! Next project is going to be a red cabled ipad case for my AIDS Walk etsy page. Be sure to check out my previous post regarding submitting any knitwear donations :)

All my best,
Eddie

Socks , Socks, Socks....

I am afraid I have a new addiction! My sock drawer is now filled with socks. I have no regret either.And I am still knitting some from old stashes. Right now it is -9 with wind chill of -20. I have been wearing a pair of chunky socks I made from old stash they are great! I wear them when working out in the snow shoveling etc. Sometimes for a couple of hours.

Linen Stitch Scarf - Detail

Evening All,

The scarf is coming along nicely. Using a size US6 needle. I really like the way the color combinations of the color ways I've selected are coming together. I think my daughter-in-law is really going to like it. JRob

Another pair of socks...

So this is quite a screwup - I'd started a pair of socks for my friend Shakir way before going to the US, and got waylaid. I finally finished them up and took a picture of him wearing them but accidentally had the movie camera function on.
