Alice Starmore's Newest Fair Isle Knitting Book!

I've been on the waiting list on amazon.com for Alice Starmore's newest book to be released. It was late to become available but finally I got my copy this past week. I hold her in high esteem for her beautiful Fair Isle knitting patterns.

Penguin Sweaters

I just came across this article. It made me smile. I immediately thought to share it with our community here. Maybe somebody else has posted it but if not I figured that some of the family here would enjoy it and maybe contribute.

Lionheart

Lionbrand yarn donated enough Fisherman's Wool for me to make 50 bears today. They took notice of me, and my little bears. In about 2 weeks they'll be promoting me on their website. My little knit teddy bears are going places....I'm happy to be along for the ride. :)

...all the lionhearted courage is beginning to pay off. From homeless...to entrepreneur.

Wow, it's been a long time since I've really spent time on here. Life happens. But don't worry; it's been good.

Need help identifying a sweater

Hi guys,

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I want to make a sweater for my hubby, he likes the ones with the big collar that has the buttons that go down the side onto the shoulder. Has anyone seen any patterns like this or know what this kind of sweater is called?

I think the reason i can't find aything is because i'm not searching for the right thing.

Cable Knit Scarf

This is my first attempt at a cable and I found I did enjoy making the scarf. It's a reversible pattern with 3 cables on the other side.
