I had put the prayer shawl aside to do a rush job on a baby blanket for some friends I will see the week before Thanksgiving. I decided on a whim to knit them something and then worked my tail off for fear that it would not be finished in time. Instead I made it with time to spare....and watched a lot of Star Trek in the process.
Last night while watching TV I started the Vertex Cowl with the Stonehenge Crazy I purchased during our trip to Yale to visit our son. It was a free pattern that came with the yarn. It is a simple chevron stitch pattern. It was purchased at a great shop call Knit New Haven. Check it out if you're every in the area. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. JRob
Well Lobsters in the Cathedral is done. It was fun designing and knitting my first sweater not from a pattern. I am really pleased with the fit and the way it turned out. Hope you all have a great weekend and find a little time to knit. Regards to all my knitting brothers on this beautiful autumn day., JRob.
Here's a picture of some more socks I made. I love them. They're so comfortable and great for long walks. They feel like all-around foot cushions!
A round the first of this year I found out that my nephew and his wife were expecting their second child. At that point I started to look at something to knit for the baby. Before I got started we heard that the ultrasound said that it ws going to be a girl.
Sorry not to have posted for a while. I'm still here and I'm still knitting - and at last have started Dad's Christmas Cardigan before december so there is a chance it will get finished.
Just came across this article and though you might like to see it:

This hat took me forever since I was working on it as we listed and sold our home in Burbank and moved to San Luis Obispo. I used double pointed needles and Mirasol Tupa 50/50 merino/silk. Love the yarn. It's a Woolly Wormhead pattern called Castiel. I had to rescue the project from catastrophic stitch droppage a couple times.
