on my way

Hi Men - just finshed a scarf for a good mate who now lives in Melbourne (colder than Sydney!). I have made this one before and learned that I like a challenge. Doing it the second time became a bit tedious.

Happy with the results though - he gets it tomorrow.

Now the next challenge is underway thanks to all your help (especially Millard!)

This one is my own design (well - borrowning left, right and centre from many patterns to get what I want). Managed to get the provisional cast on right and pick up the stiches for the hem too. Roaring along now.

This one is for the boyfriend although after 12 years I guess he could be my husband!!

Very nice knitting. The scarf is superb...I could see wearing that and even knitting it. [Hmmm...I do have that luscious alpaca sitting in the corner.] Great start on the sweater and I look forward to progress reports. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Love the scarf Paul!

Love the scarf Paul! Looking good on the jumper--I'm a big fan of knitted hems. Don't listen to Tex, his sanity is provisional!

Paul, The cabled scarf is

Paul,

The cabled scarf is fantastic!!! As for the second attatchment it looks like somthing in biology class. Seriously, I have never had to do a provisional cast on. Familiar with it but not well versed. When I finally have an opportunity to give it a go I'm gonna call on you. As for now... listen to the Cajun, because you see he has this grandmother who with a lock of hair can do .........................
