Doily

Just finished a nice and fast doily from Yarnover. I used # 10 cotton and 2.75 mm needles. Fun to do.

Speaking of Cast On's

A few weeks ago, Shawn (HuskerClub) commented on a request for a stretchy cast on. He described a cast on that I had never heard of before.

Fair Isle Vest

Finished a Fair Isle vest that was designed by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I used Jamieson and Smith Shetland Wool and 4.00 mm needles. I really like the drape this fabric has.

Allover Design

I have started a new sweater with a Faroese allover design that I found in Sheila McGregor's "Scandinavian Knitting".

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.

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.
