This is my own wool that I have dyed and done my own spinning for on my Spinning Wheel. This is my first project that I have posted. It was done on a Triangle Loom.

YO at end of row...

Hey guys....I started knitting a swatch of a single motif in the lace pattern I chose ( One row of the pattern says to yarn over at the end. If its meant to increase a stitch, how will it do this if there isn't a stitch left to knit after it. Specifically I'm talking about row 27.

Thanks guys.

Clive's gansey

My partner Clive knitted this Elizabeth Zimmermann Gaffer's Gansey for himself in 8ply (DK)wool using 3.25mm needles. He is not a member of MWK so asked me to put it in my blog.

Zauberball Socks

A friend gave me three balls of Zauberball Crazy from Germany. This colour is Summer Meadow. It is lovely to knit with and I am pleased with the finished product. It is a single ply yarn and I used 2.25 mm needles.

Sweater Sleeves

Gang! I am just finishing up a set- in sleeve hoodie. Does anybody have suggestions as to sewing the sleeve seam before sewing it to the bodice or after the attachment to the body of the sweater. Thanks, Bill
