I am so glad I have something done. This feels good and also a sigh of relief! Now on to the next one.
I read a couple of articles (one of them was from an old "Threads" magazine that I have had for ages) on how to construct gloves and gave them a shot. I used Patons sock yarn and 2.75mm needles. They are nice and warm and for the most part fit nicely. However, on my next pair I will make the little finger first and then knit another half inch before making the other three fingers.
Finally finished these socks for my sister. They will go perfect with her work clothes as she wears nurse's scrubs. They are a little more aqua-green than the pics. She already saw one when I finished it and loved it - fit perfect.
For all the Whovians out there.....here's the trailer for the 50th anniversary special. Enjoy.
Here's a picture of my latest. I've been making versions of this sock, on and off, for the past three years. For the past 6 or 7 months, it's been mainly "on". I couldn't really tell you how many times I've knit this sock. But I'm feeling that this time may really be The One that I've been looking for.
Ny great niece again - in another of the baby jackets I made her.
Just got back from my FIRST men's knitting retreat. It was one of the best functions I've been with. Such a group of creative and caring men! And the food was to dye for! I ate WAY too much. Also bought more yarn than I needed so lots of projects to do. I plan on attending more!

My new great niece in one of the outfits I knit for her birth...
Are there any MWK members in Spokane, Washington? I will be in there from 1-14 November and would love to meet up with any men knitters who just might live there. I know it's a long shot but I understand Spokane has grown and matured considerably so my fingers are crossed for some male knitting company.
