So what have I been up to?

Not that much, knitting-wise. I've been working on a few projects that have stretched out for a few months. I recently saw the "Hibernation" category on Ravelry projects page and thought it appropriate.

Finally Retired & Now Writing About Knitting

Well, I made it. As of June 1, I am officially retired from teaching. Thirty-nine long years. My students made me wonderful gifts and the teachers and administrators festooned me with praise...and even some gift cards. I will be using two of the cards to help pay for my hotel bills to and from the Denver retreat. That was a big help.

Jacob's Ladder Seaman's Scarf

My brother wanted a light scarf that was akin to USA red...that's my term for the color. So, I got the color pallet for the Olympic clothing and finally found some yarn that matched pretty well. I always enjoy doing cables, so this scarf was a fun way to practice that skill even more. I used yarn I had never seen before by Caron.

Lobsters in the Cathedral -Update 5/26 Back Done

Good Evening All,

Back is off the needles. Thought I'd also have 1/2 of the front done but had a surprise visit from my daughter-in-law and 20 month old Grandson. They came up and spent the weekend while my son was away on business. HAd a great time but did not get much knitting done.

EVEN MORE SOCKS

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. To the men on here who has or is currently serving our country, thank you.

My younger sister's favorite color is neon green. Now that neon colors are back in for the moment, I found a colorway at Knit Picks that she would like.

Brethren Sock, too.

Hi guys! After seeing all of Andy's wonderful socks, and shortly after Mark mentioned starting a pair, I decided I'd join the fun and try the Brethren sock pattern as well.

Missing this!

Hi there, guys! I wish I could understand why I sometimes disappear from this website for 6 to 10 months at a time. I love it here and there are so many wonderful knitters on here, but somehow I get out of the habit of logging on here. Heck, even Ravelry doesn't see me for a couple of weeks sometimes.

Steven West Samen

Hi guys. I am starting Steven West "Samen" I am using lace weight . The pattern calls for holding two strands of yarn together.
So far I am doing well. However the pattern is divided into wedges. 1-5 .I've finished the first wedge, however I am confused on the directions. When do I start on the other side of the center?

Beading

So I just got into beading and have a supply question. I am using. 1 mm crochet hook to bead. Having trouble finding beads with large enough holes. I know the bead size I want is 4mm. But how are the holes defined? It seems hit or miss
