Wiki Skin Competition for New Knitting Wiki

Sarah Bradberry over at has taken on Brenda Dayne of Cast On's suggestion and is setting up a new knitting wiki to be a repository of knitting knowledge that anyone can contribute to. She's holding a competition to come up with a nice wiki skin that looks a bit different from Wikipedia and some of the other wikis out there. If you understand php and css (I don't!) and are interested in the details, you can find out more here.

A Scarf Progress Pic

The disaster I laughingly refer to as a scarf has reached the 36" mark. It's coming along slowly as I can only work on it a little here and there as I find the time. I thought I'd post a pic of it at this stage to give you guys a good chuckle.

Know any good books...

I already have 'Knitting with Balls' and love it and have just today ordered 'Never Knit Your Man a Sweater.' Does anyone out there know of any other good books and/or pattern books of projects for men?

The first of the two....

I don't know why I didn't post the first My So-Called Scarf that I'd made prior to the one that I posted here....but now that I've thought about it, I think it's a good idea to share it here, too. So, here goes:

My So Called Scarf

Started: 23rd November 2006
Finished: 14th December 2006
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Worsted Merino-Lambwool in the colourway "Koralle im Meer" ("Corals in the sea")
Needles: 6 mm/US #10 Inox circs
Pattern: My So Called Scarf from Sheep in the City
Modifications: Instead of a 30-stitch pattern, I reduced it to 28 stitches and add the chain edge (4 stitches in total, so that adds up to 32 stitchs), because I have only one hank of the wool and the scarf's going to be short anyway.
