back in the fold

It has been far too long. New hobbies have arrived, and a slight obsession with brewing beer took some necessary funds away from knitting. However, I'm back with great urgency. There is a sweater that I offered as part of an auction. This, however, never got done. I am resolved to make it before this year's auction (noting that a one-year layover is less than awesome). Thought I would share something that I found on youtube a long time ago - rather humorous.

Enjoy, and be well.

Swapping stash

Basically we wanted to swap or trade knitting stash and didn't want to have to pay to do it. So we made this http://www.stashswap.com

It only went up last week, but we hope you like it, it'd be good to get some more chaps involved.

Cheers now, and have fun.

Clerical Stole

I am almost done with a clerical stole I knit for my nephew's ordination. (11 am, saturday - he will be ordained a Deacon in the Episcopal Church)

Red wool, sport weight from Black Oak Wool of Dundee NY (I think they are out of business now)
Knit on size US 3 needles.

about 4 inches x 110 inches, with eyelet lace designs for about 16 inches either end.

All I have left to do is finish sewing the backing on, then steam blocking it.

I posted pictures out in my folder at Knitted lace.
