My Son's Herringbone Scarf in Yale Blue - On the Needles

When my younger son was home this weekend he asked me to knit him a scarf in Yale Blue. He is applying to Yale's Graduate School of Music along with 4 other Universities. I've been wanting to learn the Herringbone stitch for some time and thought this would be a good project to learn the pattern. Here is a picture of my gauge swatch.

West's Chadwick Done

Morning All,

West's Chadwick is done and off the needles. Just needs to be blocked today. Thought I'd post some pictures so I have a record of the complete project. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and got some knitting in. Regards to all my knitting brothers, JRob

Top Down, In The Round Sweaters

Here's a question for all you guys - I'm looking for a top-down pattern in the round for a basic men's sweater. Any suggestions out there? I've done a few bottom up sweaters in the round, but not a real fan of the section near the neckline that has to be knitted flat (that part always looks "off" to me). Thanks!

"Hollywood" Finally Finished

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I finally finished the "Hooray for Hollywood" piece that I posted images of a while back when it was still a work in progress.

The finished piece is about 6' by 5' and I've got it hanging on the wall right now. Each "portrait" is approximately 12" square.

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all the fellows here at MWK. I hope you all have a great day and can spend time with good friends and/or family.

As for being thankful: I'm taking a cue from the homework a friend's daughters had to complete and making a list of some knitting related things I'm grateful about -

Back!!

Well - I'm back.... Hello Gents.

Cannot believe that I moved from Sydney to a much cooler climate (Seattle) and have not picked up my needles in TWO years! :(

Well - I'm back into after I saw the new Rowan Autumn Knits pattern "Ilam". Just started!

Catnip Advice and Follow Up

Howdy Gentlemen!
I am making a new snake-like tube that I want to fill with either catnip, or something else that has been soaked in catnip. Have any of you made something like this? If so, what did you use to stuff it and how did you integrate the catnip into it? I tried some dried catnip last year and the toy was not as well liked as those bought at the pet store. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

West's Chadwick - Almost Done

Good Morning All,

Life has been busy and I have not spent the time knitting I would have liked but I've been slowing completing West's Chadwick. I hope to be done by Thanksgiving. I just completed the first row of the final section "No. 3" - only 23 rows left to go. I hope everyone is having a great fall and gets some quality time with their sticks over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Regards, JRob
