OT Spring Pics

I offered a few spring pics recently. Unfortunately it has been overcast for several days. Here is a splash of color (if you like yellow).

Yellow Jasmine from my work, I eat lunch under it almost daily.

Iris blooming, spring can't be far off now.

Daffodil beginning to fade.

Enjoy

Happy Birthday to me

Celebrating my 42nd birthday today.
Here is my gift:

a Men's Top down drop sleeve cardigan. Size 38, gauge 5x6/inch.

This is just my starting point, I increased the cast on stitches to 109. Needed the extra stitch to center the 4x1 rib pattern I am using. There will be more tweeks to come as I reconsider button placement, collar options and pockets.

Yet another knit sculpture

Knit skeleton anyone?
It appears each bone was knitted individually.

More Cutesy Crap... yet Impressive Craftsmanship

Hi all,
Someone posted this on my FB-page. I must say, "I am impressed." Since I have not seen it here, I thought I would share. Each character is distinctive.

Aran Paint + (stitch pattern design sopftware) Demo review

I found this program on the web for designing stitch patterns.
http://members.iinet.net.au/~coolhoun/index.html
It is one of the few programs that offer a simulated view of the stitch pattern. Stitch patterns can be viewed as, vertical repeats, horizontal repeats, or all over patterns.

Knitting in High Humidity

Any advice for knitting in high humidity? Yarn recommendations? cheap acrylic gets unmanageable (*hears Bill snickering in the background).
