Wrist Warmers

I bought Arne and Carlos's new book "Norwegian Knits with a Twist" and really liked the wrist warmers. The pattern called for a dk weight which I couldn't find but did find some suitable Jamieson Smith Shetland in 4 ply jumper weight. I had to swatch and do a bit of math to achieve the correct size. They were a fun knit.

study on men who knit ???

Has anyone else responded to the call for participants by Ann Morneau?

She claims:" The aim of my study is to convey the
stories and experiences of men who knit. My area of specialization in
gender studies is masculinity, so the research will focus on men's
experiences in an activity that is still socially gendered as a "female"
activity. "

Mock Cable Rib Stitch Infinity Scarf

My mom turns 88 today, so I made a scarf for her birthday. Nothing real fancy or complicated, but a nice accessory with some amazing texture. She taught me how to knit when I was about 10, and it's been a life skill that has brought much joy into my life.

Open All Hours - Granville's Vest Pattern Search

I have a request to knit a copy of the fair isle vest worn by Granville in the BBC sit-com "Open All Hours". Apparently, the vest has some noteriety, something like Jayne's hat in the show "Firefly". I have seen it in Google images; it wouldn't be difficult but I can't really see the patterning. I am presenting this here in hope that someone may have a lead for this pattern.

Happy Knitting!

Using Knitting as Fabric.

Many years ago I made this waistcoat by first knitting a tube of fair isle and then cutting it into two pieces to form the mirror image fronts. These were backed with fabric, with cording in the seams. I used a suit vest as my template to cut and sew the pieces. The yarn is Jamieson & Smith shetland which lends itself well to this fabric approach.

Waffle Stitch Prayer Shawl

I had not tried the waffle stitch, so I thought I would give it a shot on a prayer shawl. I used bulky yarn and was quite pleased with the texture and drape of the fabric. I know there are other charity knitters on here so I thought I'd post some pics and the link to a free pattern.
