My scarf is coming along nicely and my knitting is really improving. It was all of a sudden a night and day difference. My stitches are nice and even, and I'm having to tink a stitch very rarely now.
As I can only work on it for a couple of hours in the evening, it's naturally taking a while, but my knitting is getting a bit faster too. Right now the scarf is just a tad over 18" long and progressing.
While the first several inches show a lot of mistakes and uneven stitches, it suddenly changes from that to a nice even ribbing and even the edges are nice and even.
I think I'm starting to get the hang of it finally. I'm looking forward to learning other techniques now. I may try to cable on the next scarf. I have some nice light blue yarn and may try to make myself a matching hat and scarf with it. I'm thinking maybe something like a sailor's scarf.
Ah well, that's for later, right now I need to finish this one.
Long time no subject matter. The holidays were crazy and it has been a long time since I have really said much....but I've been keeping my eye on you all!
I have a question....I am starting a new project for my Godmother and she is a "bright" person...she has chosen a vest that is a multi colored intarsia and fair isle piece (very different from my charcoal grey and chocolate colored everything). I am only about a quarter of the way through and the tangling is a little...welll.....irritating! Any adivce on ways to manage this. Do you guys use bobbins, just let the fiber hang straight (no pun intended), or tie butterfly bundles....or what? I just thought I would check. Hope this New Year brings you all everything you desire! I'll try to be better at checking in!!!
Stumbled across this set of sock directions while I was surfing the web the other day, entitled "Socks Knitted For and By a Guy" and posted to woolworks.com in 1996. I wasn't following these directions, but I did find them very helpful as I worked through the pair I was knitting and thought they might be helpful to others.

What a lame title.....nevertheless I thought that the best way to introduce myself to the other members of the site is to post an entry....and thus I've chosen to post a picture of my latest FO (from right before Christmas):
So, here's hello from me. ;-)
