This last week I actually managed to complete to more project for the Christmas stash. I think that puts me roughly a quarter of the way through this thing.

This weekend, I was just sitting at my desk, bored and had nothing to do. Then out of the corner of my eye, I say this ball of yarn staring at me intently.

We had our 3rd Knit and Crochet group meeting Thursday evening here in Murfreesboro. I think things went well. Several people left early, Most stayed until the library closed.
Just wanted to take a minute and finally say hello. Been reading a lot of the posts and it's good to finally meet a group of guys that love what I'm passionate about.
One of the pleasures of the Portuguese method is that of “playing” the yarn. The yarn is stretched taut from the knitter’s neck to the needle.
