Spring Jacket

I found some old Lopi and this pattern in a bin I had forgotten about for over l2 years. It was a fun and fast knit. I especially like the collar on this one.

History

I am wondering how many of you have been around since the commencement of this community. What kind of changes have you seen?

Swatching

The Yarn Harlot's Febrary 25th blog entry is a wonderful article on swatching. I tend to agree with most of what she says. I hardly ever have a swatch relate correctly to the article I am knitting.

Sweater

A guest from Canada is wearing a new sweater I designed and knit for myself. The wool is local and is from Patzcuaro - a small town near Morelia. It costs about $10 a kilo.

"English Crystal" by Marianne Kinzel

Just finished this piece and sort of blocked it. I really don't like to crochet the edgings. It frustrates me to no end.

Stash Buster

Dug into my stash of Shetland wool and found some oatmeal and broom heather. I'm knitting a Scandinavian type hat with a plain hem for extra warmth over the ears. Fun to do.

Help

Has anyone heard of a scarf pattern that when finished is rather small but then you drop some stitches and it grows to great lengths?

Finished Two Sweaters

This weekend I finished up and blocked two sweaters I have been working on. The first one is made with Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool in a lovely heather plum colour.

Birthday presents

I made some farmer socks for my brother-in-law out of Briggs and Little Tuffy and a pair of socks and a pair of mittens each for my sister and sister-in-law.

Miguel's Sweater

Visiting my friend in Canada. I knit this from Briggs and Little Regal from New Brunswick that was in my stash in Mexico. It turned out to fit perfectly and is a lovely colour.
