Fuzzy Wuzzy Wuzzn't Fuzzy, Wuzzy.

The controvery on TSA's policy about small sharp objects, large hocky sticks and inflated egos accompanying airflight passengers on commercial flights rages on Capitol Hill. I bask in the warm knowledge that knitting needles build civilization, and are hense, benign objects to the agency.

Carlito Cardigan

Put away the Carlito Cardigan for a while. After attempting the back three times, I can't get the stitching to come together where it needs to on the lower back. Ah well, I will conquer it eventually.

WIP's and Chain Stitches

I have another work in progress (WIP, to the acolytes among you) on the needles...and I have reached a decision point in my life.

"Kureyon" Jacket

I designed and knit this cardigan in 1984 when Noro yarns "Kureyon" first came onto the market and the designs of Kaffe Fassett were wowing us all. Instead of using a gazillion yarns of many shades, as Kaffe did, I decided that this one yarn could create that rich effect in a much simpler way!

Top-Down Raglan

Here is a top-down raglan knit in Noro "Kureyon". This is a good way to use self-striping yarns, as there is no matching of color bands necessary and it has a balanced final look.

A little spinning on Sunday

I just wanted to share some of my spinning. It is Suri alpaca and it is like a dream. I almost forgot how to spin, but that is ridiculous, there is muscle memory and that will come back as soon as you spend some time spinning.
