Hi guys.

Just wanted to say a quick hello.  I just joined the site and am already enjoying it.  I've learned to knit when I was probably 8 or 9, but have been knitting regularly for the last 10 years or so.

 My partner and I live in Clearwater, Florida.  Don't currently have anything on the needles (GASP!) but just finished two of the cadet caps from the current issue of knitty and a sweater/shrug set for my neice who is graduating this month.

Blue / Orange Scarf . . . In Progress

Thanks for the interest that several of you have shown in my first dyed scarf project.  Several have requested a pic of the scarf, albeit in progress, to show the colors and how the orange is playing into the colors.  So . . . attached is a pic of what has been done so far (only about 12 inches thus far; the total length will be 60 inches).  There is no special pattern; just simple 5 X 7 rib; 100% Brown Sheep wool, worsted weight, knit on #8 needles.  I hope the colors show

WIP

Hi Guys,

Here is a glimpse of the sweater I am working at present. Have just finished the back of this sweater and started on the front. It is a wedge shaped garment and hopefully won't be too small at the waist for me!!! This will be the first garment I have knitted for me for many years. Usually I have too many orders from friends etc. It is 8ply and knitted on 4mm needles, the yarn is from a small outlet in Victoria where I have been buying yarn for many years.

chenille makes one ambitious

i got this scarlet chenille yarn a week ago and am hammering out a matching scarf and hat set for my mom.  this is the first time i've ever used this stuff and i think it is addictive.....having odd thoughts of doing a series of afghans then grafting them together to make one huge bed cover.......tho' so far i've found picking up stitches with this yarn is something of a pain tho' that's probably more a function of my habit of keeping everything too tight than a function of the character of the yarn.

baby surprise

I have a gazillion UFOs, but I've been mostly working on the Elizabeth Zimmermann "baby surprise sweater" for a friend's baby that wasn't due until June 10th. He was born May 11th. I don't think I will ever make anything on time for anyone! lol

Another Cell Phone Caddy

I've been working on knitting in the round since I picked up my DPNs last week.  Mostly I've been working on a scarf that is about halfway finished but I really like the instant gratification of smaller projects so I whipped up a cell phone caddy for myself.

This is the first project I've done where I've used different colors of yarn and I'm pleased overall with my knitting, although I'm less than thrilled with this particular cell phone caddy as a useful piece. 

This is also the first caddy which I knit in the round.  It's a simple tube with i-cord at the top.  I wasn't sure how changing colors within i-cord would work, but the effect is not too bad, albeit a bit lumpy.

Dog Sweater

As most of you know, the UK isn't the warmest of places and so I knot my Yorkshire Terrier, Frank, a jumper to keep warm.  He wasn't a keen model but is now learning to work the runway!  It is a simple pattern but I think the Hand Dyed (not by me!) Blue Faced Leicester wool makes up for it.

A charity knitting website

Hi guys, A friend alerted me to this site. If you have extra time & want a destination for your knitting this might be the place for you & a worthy one.
