I finished a scarf this weekend

I am very excited. I finished a scarf this weekend for a dear friend; I hope she likes it. I have to say, it was an easy knit. I used size 50 needles. It took about 3 hours total.

Cable cast-on mistake

Germany sucks on Sundays...and finished hat pictures!!

So I'm running low on yarn..and I wanted to buy some more today, a very simple task one might think but Germany hates me on this particular day of the week.

Lost Needles

Well it finally happened. I was coming home from Mexico yesterday and the Security people opened my bag and found my knitting needles.

Fleegle has unvented a way to knit garter stitch in the round without purling or using wrap and turn. I found this fascinating and can't wait to try it.

re-evaluation

As much as I've been enjoying the "hat a day" bit, I realize it's not helping me fulfill what I really want to do, which is to get my sweater patterns finished and made and tested, and sized...

Thought I would post some pictures of my progress with the KAL. I have managed in the time for the first boot to knot both so I am going to knit a second pair in the second half of the KAL
