A Little Sweater

Finished a sweater for my six year old niece. I used some Paton's merino that was left over from another project. I have resolved to use up my odds and ends and will do some mittens.


HOW do you guys do such intricate work???

Honorable Ravenclaw House Scarf (WIP 2)

Just wanted to share the work in progress progress.. I am hoping to finsh this scarf next week. You can see the orange markers are where the stitch is actually slipped.

Real Men Knit video

I just watched the trailer for that Real Men Knit DVD and I saw my knitting instructor from my LYS(Seattle) on it!

I've gone and done it again...

If I don't have enough projects that I'm working on, I've begun learning a new (new to me) technique.

For some reason, I've always been extremely apprehensive about Illusion/Shadow knitting.

Finished Scarf

I finished this 3 days ago and finally got some pics taken. I haven't measured it and I'm not quite satisfied with the fringe (one of my very weak points).

I swear, I didn't have any training at all. I picked up a pair of needles and tada, a sweater spun out.

Honorable Ravenclaw House Scarf (WIP)

I am a Harry Potter Fan, and most likely because of the Houses. I know I would have enjoyed being in such a school.
