I'm now a complete yarn snob. I was on a cruise last week in Alaska and succumbed to the allure of two 1 oz. balls of $93 per ball!!!

Beach Knitting

Well, I did not get as much knitting done as I would have liked while on vacation, but I did fairly well for a beginner. I got about 2 and 2/3 dish cloths done.

Spiral Scarf

I just finished this spiral scarf. Its all done with short rows - my first attempt at wrapping and turning. It turned out to knit up pretty quick.

Socks and an auxilliary thread!

I've finished the 1940s vest (I don't like it), and I've finished my mohair and silk circular scarf (I love it) and now I'm taking on my biggest challenge to date: socks.

Is this a good way to guesstimate?

I'm going to start an afghan for a friend who just bought a new house. The measurements are 48x60 and as a guy who is 6' tall, 60 inches just isn't long enough for an afghan.
