Lace Wrap

Attached is a photo of Lace Wrap blocking. Pattern is from Vogue Knitting Winter 09/10. I used three colorways of Indigo Moon Handpainted Sock Yarn. The repeats are all the same size (photo skews perspective a bit). It's 22" x 78". The pattern has a smaller rectangle (not pictured--still knitting it) that is sewn perpendicular to one end, making an "L".

Anyone else think...

Anyone else think that knitting women's apparel is more fun? lol. These past couple of days I've been looking through some of Vogue knitting's past issues and have been trying to think of all of my girl friends that I could gift garments to, haha.

Desperately Seeking Advice - Sweater

I've made this sweater out of the Jane Ellison Menswear - Ansley (photo attached, not mine - but from the pattern). I used Queensland Kathmandu Aran yarn. Well it knitted up fairly well. My issue is that it fits everywhere EXCEPT the arm holes. It is rather tight for the recipient where the arms are attached too the body. I've tried to sew it with some give and it still is too tight.

BIG A$$ Man Scarf

Well I wanted to knit myself a scarf because every time I knit myself a scarf it ends up being gifted to someone, which I totally don't mind. For instance, last year during the Christmas round robin a friend was just in love with my scarf, so by the end of the evening it was his. So I had 15+ skeins of Cascade Tweed sitting in one of my bins.

Irish Hooded Scarf

I do believe this project is progressing nicely. I hope to have it done by Christmas. Need it for a present. And thanks Jim for kick starting the hood part for me.

Challenging Knit Ideas

Hi all!

Great Aran sweater mystery

My son gave me a sweater this week. It's a "hand me up" as he has outgrown it. His mom bought it for him at the thrift shop. I really love this sweater. It's 100% wool made by Carraig Donn in Ireland. I've looked at a lot of Carraig Donn sweaters online, and I've never seen anything quite like this.

Reindeer? How about a Moose. Eat that Santa

No, really, you can eat it.

Well, to be honest, I wanted a Christmas tree cookie cutter, but no luck. So ended up with a star, a snowflake, and a moose. Yeah, you read that right, a moose. Everyone loves a good moose. Oh wait... that's supposed to be everyone loves a good goose. As long as it doesn't come from the dog when your in compromising positions that is.
