Three Weeks

Have been knitting for three weeks now and on my fourth hat. Didn't know a thing about knitting, so went on You Tube and found some basic videos and got started. Which led me to Knit Picks. Which led me to this web page. Nice to know other men who knit, and are willing to help others. Been quilting for ten years and time to start something new, knitting is it.

Judy's Magic Cast On

I just discovered this cast on the a few days ago. It's used for toe up socks. As I am not a sock knitter (yet) it's totally new to me. It looks like a great provisional cast on. Has anyone used it for anything other than socks?

Latest project

Here's the latest project I've been working on. I decided to use Knit Picks Chroma yarn instead of Noro. The colors I chose for this scarf are Bittersweet Heather and Pool Party. Nothing spectacular but I like it.

I was right.

As some of you may recall, I wondered - in an earlier post - if Cat Bordhi was inspired by my twisted heel stitches when she published a pattern that also used them.

Finished cowl

I finished knitting my cowl scarf tonight and blocked it. The scarf is drying now.

You might recall I posted a week or so ago about wanting to knit a cowl for myself. I decided on the "Purl Ridge Scarf" cowl pattern by Stephen West. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/purl-ridge-scarf

As soon as it's dry and I get it photographed, I'll post photos. - Tom

Mutant fingerless glove

Well, I have begun my adventures in making gloves, and the results are amusing, at least. I've wanted to make gloves for some time, especially fingerless, and I have a pattern I downloaded to get to "sometime" so when a friend asked if I'd make her a pair of gloves, I thought I'd take the plunge.

Falling Further Into The Lace Pit


I just can't seem to stop knitting lace. This is my latest. I call it Leaf and Acorn Stole. This summer, I came across the acorn and leaf pattern. It's an edging pattern from 1891 and it begged me to make it into something fun. So, here is my take on it.

Excuse me I was absent for a long time

I greet all of the long-Krakow. People say that it will be cold winter
