Trying to make my own pattern...bad idea!!!

Okay so I took people's advice on my last entry and bought Knitting With Balls so that I could use the pattern for hats/scarf/gloves because I'm knitting a present for my boy's birthday.

Found this book of patterns from the mid ‘80’s at a yard sale for a quarter. “Awesome, I’ll take it.” What a crappy book it turned out to be, though.

Knitting in Public Day

Hey, did anybody participate in Knitting in Public Day this year? For the last 8 months I've been knitting in public, so I really didn't do anything special.

We've got a ways to go, but, we've come a LONG way since.

For today: let's remember Stonewall.

Happy Pride, folks!

Yesterday was one of those amazing days with beautiful weather and clear skies so I headed west and up into the mountains with the motorcycle.

Hi gents

Well it was a very quiet and relaxing weekend away at our place in the bush...good to escape the rat race every now and then.

Spinning Question

To all of the spinners out there, how do you determine, while you are plying, that you have a balanced yarn? I know that there has to be a way.

Thanks
