Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!

Hi guys! So a friend of mine requested a custom piece for Christmas, which is very exciting! She, my boyfriend, and I are huge fans of RuPaul's Drag Race, and we get together every Monday to watch together (have you boys been watching Allstars??? The SHADE of it all...). She did not specify what she wanted as a gift, her only stipulation was that I make it for her.

Open "weave" sweater

I am looking for a knit stitch for a sweater that would be open, i.e. not tightly knit using a thicker yarn.
Maybe something like a rose stitch? Would large needles and garter stitch work? Granted that would be bit boring as stitches go! :-)

Jack Frost Nipping at the Pumpkins

We've had our first heavy frost this week in St. Louis (but today is forecast to be 70). Almost finished my grandson's last sweater for the season and was thinking what to do next and thought I'd do my first cock sock/willie warmer. Anyone know of a good pattern and want to join me in knitting one up? I thought us guys could have some fun with a short project together.

Sweet Tomato Heel Socks

Has anyone tried socks using the brilliant Cat Bordhi's "Sweet Tomato Heel?" I bought the e-book last night and have done a heel-only to try the technique. I really like the smooth look as well as the ease of making it. There is no heel flap, there are no wraps to conceal, nor any stitches to pick up.

Hello. My name is Jonathan and I’m a yarn addict. I have to admit that I am powerless over yarn, that my life has become unmanageable.
