The thong

I hused Cascade Fixation yarn and a size 5 needle. There was my maistake. I will yse a smaller needle size this time. It may take me awhile to knit it. I back on the road again tomorrow. Yeah! I can finally go back to work

Frogged the thong

I had to for the thong. The problem was the gauge. I cheked it half way through. I fit like I was King Kong. I wish I was that big. LOL. But I am not. I am starting over I will also try it on every so often to check the fit. Anway it will get done and fit.

Making the thong

I started making the thong. I have gotten to the front pouch. I must admit that part of the intstructions are a little confusing but I may have figured it out. We'll see though when the pouch is done. No,  I will not model it here, not with my dunlap. LOL.

My Knitting Projects

My first project was big one. I needed a blanket for the sleeper in my truck. So I knitted one in intarsia. It has a wolf howling at the moon. My CV handle is greywolf, so I figured why not knit a howling wolf in the middle. It took 4 months to do it. I ripped it all ougt and started over 3 times. My next projects were sweaters. I have been knitting for 2 years. I hope to start a men's knitting group here in the Kalamazoo, MI area.
