This is the Fiber Factor

I'm sorry that I didn't include a link...LOL. It didn't occur to me until late last evening that I should have. It's a contest like American Idol for knitters and I'm finding it very interesting and I thought that you might too! http://youtu.be/xZLMeI7TOtI
This is Challenge #1. They are now on challenge #2

FO: Fingerless gloves for my dad

Just finished these gloves for my dad's birthday. Actually, 15 minutes before the Post Office closed, so I was able to get them in just in time to arrive Friday, upon which day he will be 79.

S1pwise Help

Could someone help me with a technique issue.
I am knitting a Matthew Scarf and every w/s row starts with a s1pwise. My problem is if I make a mistake and have to unpick my stitches and reknit the s1pwise, I end up with a big ugly loop of yarn at the beginning of the row. I have tried twisting the s1pwis stitch before I reknit the s1pwise, but it is noticeable. Any help would be appreciated.

Turkey / Istanbul / Protests etc.

Hi all,

A few people have written privately asking about Turkey and if I'm safe. I thought I'd do a blog post so you can all see it.

First, I was in the US for most of the unrest. I went on May 16 to deal with some issues with my mom, and a week or so later all hell broke loose. I think trying to follow it from outside the country was worse than being here would have been.

Jaywalkers

The recent jaywalker posts inspired me, so I looked through my stash and found a skein that had looked nice on the shelf but failed to inspire when I actually started knitting it. Now I realize all it needed was some zigzag to wake it up. :)

Time for Blocking

Finally, the last stitch has been knit in my sweater. Now to block it so the 6x1 rib throughout the sweater is a bit more prominent. Then the zipper goes in. I learned so much from this project. I changed the wrists from an i-cord bind off to a 3" rib stitch simply because I prefer it. I do like the i-cord bind off for the bottom.
