Started Mario's QAL shawl pattern

Actually, I started Mario's Queen Anne Lace (QAL) shawl pattern a while ago but put it aside to start and complete another shawl. (I'll post pictures of that other shawl once it's blocked.)

Howdy Guys...

Relatively new knitter here ( doing it less than a year) but...while cruising thru an antique show this weekend, one vendor's wife was spinning wool into yarn. Very Cool.

Color Jog

When knitting in the round and changing colors, is there any way to avoid the "jog" when switching to the new color?


Hey guys, I'm a new kid on the block and I just want to share this - The Los Angeles County Fair (in Pomona), for the first time is sponsoring a "Men Knit Too" contest on Sunday, Sept.
