Toe Up Sock

This is my first toe up sock using my new US 1 1/2 9 inch circulars. The yarn is a hand dyed merino/bamboo/nylon fingering I got on ebay from Oldfield Creek Sock & Yarn, a fellow man who knits.

$*#(% The Argyles

Ok. This is something new for me. I've worked on the argyle socks a few times and ripped it out like 5 or 6 times because I didn't like how the left slants looked.

knitting: the academic approach

One of the reasons I really like this group of knitting guys is that you all approach knitting as an intellectual endeavor. Which is how I like to approach it - like a big giant math problem.

Here is a pic of the blue felted bowl. I couldn't fgure out how to attach two pics to that last entry, so the pics are being shown in separate posts.

Felted Bowls

I knitted/felted two bowls that were sent to the fundraiser/ silent auction event for Miriam's Kitchen. Both bowls are made from 100%, handpainted wool. The blue vessel was handfelted entirely.

Work on a baby blanket

Well it's started. I decided if I posted what I've gotten done here I might actually be more motivated to finish it.

Opinion, Please.....

I have a friend that is interested in joining this site. A fellow knitter, addicted to the tug of needle & yarn.

sock gusset, dpn problem

I'm having a problem with stitches falling of the back of my DPNs while I'm working the gusset section on socks - when you have all those extra stitches on needles 1 and 4.
