Cardigan, Just in Time for Christmas

My wife wanted a simple, plain cardigan with no short sleeves and no buttons. She requested grey so that she can wear colorful shirts underneath to jazz it up as her mood changes.

The pattern is Tweed Cardigan by Rebecca L. Daniels of Interweave Knits.

Enjoy.

My first Cardigan

My first attempt at a cardigan below. Just finished it and am very proud. Its a bit large around the chest for me, but I think i know now how to change that measurement in future. I now need to think of my next project. Hmm!

Greetings of the Season

I try to at least read the posts here, and haven't had much time for writing anything new or responding to anyone else.

I look around and can't see much that I've done, but I've been busy with something, I know that! There is a reason they call this the "silly season".

Knitted Necklace

My first jewelry and bead project. I used Lion Brand steel/wool and glass beads from the local bead store in VT. I also picked up Toho Shoji magnetic clasp and metal rings. I love this project so much I went to Habu Textiles and bought three more yarn choices and some semi-precious beads, etc (in NYC). The LYS in VT loved it so much they want me to teach a knitting w/ beads class.

Need some opinions

So a very famous knitting teacher (Cat Bordhi) is coming to my area. I want to attend a class and she will be teaching 3. She will be at a yarn shop that is not my favorite, but I go there when I need something I can't get elsewhere. My wife and I have been fair customers (we live 1.5 hours away so we can't go weekly).

Just a simple hat

Even with the Christmas deadline approaching, I had to take a break from the coffee-with-cream sweater for my son and knit up a simple hat for a co-worker's son with a bit of color to it. I used Plymouth Yarn's Encore Tweed, worsted weight yarn that is 75% acrylic, 22% wool, and 3% rayon. I think that should stand up to whatever a 5-year-old can use it for...and it can be washed and tumble dried.
