Crawling out from lurkdom for a while...have missed you folks...logging in here and there just to see what's been going on.
I finally got this done after frogging it the first time. It was much faster working it in Continental then my other wierd way. Anyway, I like how the color landed up where it did.
I'm about to finish up shaping the second toe of my hiking socks from _The Knitting Man(ual)_. The first sock I finished with the kitchener stitch and it looks great!!
So, I dressed Thumper this morning, and the first thing my wife asked is what we were planning to do at the commune all day. I think co-op is a little more gentle.
I'll be in Austin TX this weekend (Fri-Mon) and I'm looking for an LYS and or a gathering of Knitters, so I can escape the family for a while. Any ideas?
pattern was from knitty - colour scheme came from my warped mind.
This was suppossed to be a Christmas present - but it was finished in time for my nephew's ordination as priest friday (barely - I embroidered the cross *at* the reception)
Here is a pic of the stockinette scarf I am knitting up for my sister in this awesome 100% Baby Alpaca Bulky in teal. It is so soft!
I proposed this idea to one of my local knitting groups, and haven't really gotten a lot of feedback, so I'll toss it to you guys -- what would you think about a nice, friendly little race?
