I like to teach. One of the best ways for me to learn something is to teach it; otherwise, I find it difficult to buckle down and do the homework. So when a LYS owner asked if I'd be interested in teaching "knit to fit," I decided it is time I tackle the elusive concept of fitting a sweater.
Here's my sweater, finally done. I couldn't find the rhinestones. Actually finding buttons I liked was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm pleased with the ones my partner found, and they were cheap enough that I wouldn't cry if I found what I was searching for later on; buttons can always be redone, I figure.
Shamelessly copied from my 'other' blog, so that I can go finish my movie and make some patches for the manshawl I recently mentioned... the lovely folks at the nursing home got it caught in the bed mechanisms and ripped some nasty holes in it. (At least I know it's greatly appreciated by the one who counts!)
Hey Guys! It's been a while, I know! I'm doing well, though, nestled up in Pennsylvania now and still enjoying knitting any chance I get.
Wow, it's been a long time since I've really spent time on here. Life happens. But don't worry; it's been good.
On the trip to the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat I started another shawl by Stephen West.
To steal Kerry's words, "I recently discovered grey as a color and I love it." Couldn't have said it better.

I recently knit Jared Flood's Habitat using his yarn, Shelter. The thing that bummed me out was the way it came out a bit short.
Here's the result of an attempt at a scarf that would look nice on a fussy dresser and coordinate with black jackets. We're talking flat, sophisticated, and of course, soft.
