Two Sweaters

I knit a sweater for my neighbour in Mexico from Paton's Bulky on 6mm needles. It is charcoal with a yellow and orange fleck in it. I used the pattern I developed but this time I knit back and forth as I didn't know how the yarn which is 75% acrylic would steek. I knit the sleeves in the round.

Redbird - flying away

I made this shawl for my sister-in-law; HOWEVER, a big technical error means I'll have to remake it.

I used Kieran Foley's pattern Blackbird but changed it's name for the most obvious reason.

Help me win a piano!

Totally not knitting related, but I would love everyone's help in winning a piano. All you have to do is go to and "like" the video I uploaded. If I get enough votes, I'll win a piano!

Thanks in advance!

Firefly Foxmore Scarf

I fianally found time to photograph and post this little ditty. It was a fun continuation of my love affair with Elite Classic's Firefly yarn. It's a Rayon/Linen bland and great to work with and really illustrates the magic of blocking. I really like this lace pattern, simple and elegant.

Looking for a pattern that will go well with multi-color yarn

i have yarn that i got from a friend that's very nice. it's a multi-color yarn that was hand-dyed. i want to make a scarf out of it. i found a pattern that i liked, so when i knitted about 2 inches, the pattern was there, but it was covered up by the busy-ness of the randomized color patterns.

Regarding a SW (slip and wrap) stitch

I am currently working on a pair of children's socks. The pattern is a Lion Brand's Wool-Ease, #70480A.

According to the instructions for shaping the heel it states, (19 stitches on needle)
(WS) P18 sts, SW next st, turn
I would do this having 1 st less on each row and continue until 10 stitches have been work.

Then I would add stitches back on needle as follow
