Zimmermann's Tomten jacket............

I was inspired by Vsidart's "Baby Surprise Jacket" and as soon as I FIND my pattern, think that I should start one. In the meantime I pulled out EZ's "Knitting Without Tears".

Anyone in Iowa?

Next Friday I'll be leaving for Iowa to ride my 3rd Ragbrai (ragbrai.org). It's a southern route this year that hugs just below I-80....

Christmas Comes Earlier and Earlier Every Year

I wanted to take a moment and show off the Christmas Stocking that Vsidart made for me. He brought it when he came to Kansas a couple of weeks ago and I thought it looked FANTASTIC!

"JOG" line

I remember once running across a technique somewhere for eliminating the "jog" line that occurs in round knitting where the round joins. Does anyone know anything about this?

My First BSJ

Just cast this off... still need to block it-
Only three days on needle!
Picked up the yarn in Gove City, Kansas.
Did I really just type that?

Knitting slippers

Does anybody have a pattern for knitting slippers? I'd be much obliged to learn about it if you do.

Aeolian Shawl WIP

A group at my LYS is doing this as a knit-a-long. I think we're slated to finish in 2011. Lace and fully beaded. Pattern is from Knitty.com I'm using Jaegerspun Zephyr (Cinnabar).

OK, Next stop, Toronto (or Mississauga)

I will be in Mississauga (at the end of the YYZ runway more-or-less) Sunday evening through Friday. Anyone wanting to get together to knit or yarn-crawl in the evening, give me a shout.
