Gryffindor Sun Philosopher's Hat

Tapestry Crochet at it's best and the yarn was lots of help, the retreat gave me so much inspiration and I was even able to get some help from Asplund.

Baby Socks

I hate these things already, but thankfully I am almost done with the second one. I will never do one of these things again, they are to small.

Dudes: What up? So, I purchased a book on Tams because I really like the patterning; however, I don't want to wear a tam. How could I mess with the pattern to make the tam into a nice hat?

This is what kept me from knitting today (a bit off-topic)

Now, the photo may look like some brown mush mixed up in a steel bowl, but it's really the start of some very traditional Christmas puddings.

ball vs skein?

I have a pattern that calls for 4 balls of yarn. Is this the same as a skein? I thought things came in different amounts so you need to get the right amount by either weight (ounces) or yards.

swifts and ball winders

Are there good and bad ball winders and swifts out there or are they pretty much equal?

Playing with my wool again...

Haven't checked in for awhile. I've got lots of reading to do. Here's what I've been up to. Yes, more felting...but I do have plenty on the needles too I'll add soon.

After the Men's Knitting Retreat, I have been thinking seriously about compiling a collection of stories and interviews featuring knitters and fiber artists from all 50 of the United States.
