Celtic Knot

I am looking for a pattern for a Celtic knot to put on the sides of another Scrabble bag that I am knitting in the round. The bag is 40 stitches wide using an acrylic/wool blend yarn that is 6 sts/inch on US5 (3.75mm) circular needles. It would like the knot to be about 2" x 2". I have looked online and in a book, but can't really find one I like that is self-contained.

The Humble Washcloth

Hello all. Since January, my main focus has been on my prosthetic technology classes which are going very well. Each day I am learning so much. Knitting is not my main focus these days. At the end of my long day, I sit and knit a couple of rows for about 5 minutes before falling asleep. I have been making very simple cotton washcloths (using garter stitch, seed stitch, and linen stitch).

Ridgeway Lite from Cabin Fever

Has anyone ever made the sweater called Ridgeway Lite from Cabin Fever? It's seamless and knit in the round. I found a blog that featured it and I like the look of it. But, before I spend the money on it, I was wondering if any of you guys have made it? Thanks.

Coming To Minneapolis

Sunday I'm heading out to Minneapolis for some work related training. Naturally I want to check out the Local Yarn Stores and a possible knit night. According to Ravelry there is a Men's Knit Night that meets on Wednesdays. Anyone out there who goes to that? I'm going to be there until Thursday, so I'm thinking of knitting related excursions either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.

Cable Knit Wrap & Hat

I finished (almost) a wrap and hat for my grandmother. She says shawls are for old ladies so I have to call it a wrap...which it is so it's all good. I'm in love w/ this yarn Filatura Lanarota Alpaca Cloud. I bought a bag of ten for $30 at Smiley's Manhattan Sale.

A Bunny For Easter

For any of you out there who want to knit up a bunny before Easter, my pattern actually only takes the experienced knitter about 5 hours to whip up. You can find it on Etsy and on Ravelry. Enjoy! And if you can, share your pics of the finished bugger, I mean BUNNY!

Basic Pullover Vest in progress

The back is done and the front well under way. I told you all that I thought this would be a boring knit but it’s not that bad - I barely have to pay attention and the baby alpaca is delicious to work with so all in all I’m kind of enjoying it.
