Pillows?

Hello,

Has anyone here ever knit covers for throw pillows?  I'm thinking the silk yarn created from the recycled saris would look really wonderful covering a pillow form (or three or four) and thrown nonchallantly onto my sofa.

I would imagine it would be easy enough to come up with a pattern, but it would be helpful to hear if any Menwhoknit have done it...

Thanks,

Jonathan

Aran Watch Cap & London Beanie

Here I go again. Two hats knitted in 2005. The one on the left is an Aran Watch Cap from Charlene Schurch's "Hats On!" knitted with Plymouth Encore Worsted. The one on the right is a London Beanie, free pattern found on the Internet, knitted with Manos del Uruguay.

zip up vest

Hi guys I want to make a zip up vest for myself. I have found a few patterns around but nothing that I really like.

Two of them have called for a gauge that is about 2 stitches to the inch. I don't really want something made with bulky yarn. 

I was wondering if any of the guys on this site have made any vests with zippers and if so if they could share pictures or pattern sources.

Thanks

Purple teddy bear

I made one of these for my neice, and another one (in variegated lavender) for her brother.  It's gotten "very well loved" in that Velveteen Rabbit sort of way - kind of rougher around the edges now, although it's holding together!

I must be blind...

Don't laugh...but could someone please tell me how to update my profile...I am sure it's some link staring me right in the face, but I haven't had lunch yet and I'm losing my mind!

It's Official!

First, that I am finally home after 1,587 miles of driving!

Second, that Dallas is now having the second mens knitting group meeting (I missed the maiden voyage 3 weeks ago)  and clever, clever and very talented Michael Cook came up with a name for the group that is both descriptive and ROFL hillarious. Get this!!  "Fruits and Fiber"!!  Is that a great name or what?  I love it!

 And for all of you still clogging out there.  I have been way too busy to finish mine and there is no hurry now for myself, but still want to see results and how you all are getting along!
