This is a repost from another list. Colin is a socknitter from the UK. He has some medical problems, but is very prolific as a socknitter.
I have only knitted one thing for my mother in all these years, and that was a lace shawl for her 65th bithday. She said it was too nice to wear... and put it away!
Somewhere on the net, I came across the most interesting looking socks. But she was selling the pattern, and I thought "I can make those" -- famous last words!
This is the final result of all that knitting. It’s a strange procedure, although if you know anything about EZ’s patterns, that’s the way she does things.
So after you have one of these odd looking pieces made, the directions tell you to start back at your provisional cast-on, and make another!
One of the EZ lists is working on the Ribwarmer KAL, and since I always liked the design of it, and needing some sort of mindless knitting to do, I joined in.
Some time ago, I posted about a skein of yarn that I had spun out of some Punta roving (from South America).
I was sure I had posted this earlier, but in checking, I see that I didn't. My apologies!
This appeared on another list, so it may already be gone, but won't hurt to ask.
I was looking through a few things on eBay, and located this piece of equipment, which I feel is very necessary for anyone that handles a bunch of yarn -- and that's just about everyone here!

That's a very good deal for this item, but take into consideration the shipping to you as well. Don't everyone bid on this and boost the price up too high!! NAYY
