Smoky Mountain Living

Though I live in the Mid-West (St. Louis to be exact) the Smoky Mountains hold a special place in my heart. As a senior in college I spent some time there and in the everglades with an ecology profession and several friends. That is why I occasionally pick up an issue of Smoky Mountain Living while grocery shopping today.

My Son's Herringbone Scarf in Yale Blue - On the Needles

When my younger son was home this weekend he asked me to knit him a scarf in Yale Blue. He is applying to Yale's Graduate School of Music along with 4 other Universities. I've been wanting to learn the Herringbone stitch for some time and thought this would be a good project to learn the pattern. Here is a picture of my gauge swatch.

Morning All,

West's Chadwick is done and off the needles. Just needs to be blocked today. Thought I'd post some pictures so I have a record of the complete project. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and got some knitting in. Regards to all my knitting brothers, JRob

West's Chadwick - Almost Done

Good Morning All,

Life has been busy and I have not spent the time knitting I would have liked but I've been slowing completing West's Chadwick. I hope to be done by Thanksgiving. I just completed the first row of the final section "No. 3" - only 23 rows left to go. I hope everyone is having a great fall and gets some quality time with their sticks over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Regards, JRob

Tvaandssticking - Swedish Twined Knitting

Several months ago I bought s book called Two-ende Knitting by Anne - Maj Ling. This is a traditional Scandinavian Technique - Tvaandssticking also known as Twined Knitting or TWo-end Knitting. You can check out her designs on revelry. I was curious if any of my bro's out there have tried this technique? Let me know.

Thanks,

JRob
