Now with pictures

I finally figured out how to work the card reader and memory card for my camera. [A greatly appreciated gift from Quinton, as you may recall.]

Longjohn "Woolies"

I made these worsted weight longjohns in the mid 1980's. They are super warm and perfect for frigid winters...like this one ! The gradually shaped legs are joined at the crotch, then the hips are decreased at the center front and back to the ribbed waistband.

Has anyone bought from Yarn-Paradise?

I am looking to buy a large quantity of fluffy soft, bulky yarn for a duvet cover I am planning on knitting. I found Yarn-Paradise online and they have a massive collection. Their prices are amazingly low as are their shipping prices. Has anyone ever bought from them?

Thanks.

Been away from my knitting for a bit

Hey, so put it down a few months back and got caught up in life events for a bit...starting again, just ordered a new book and yarns to make a cool baby blanket for a good friend who is expecting...will post more once I get started again. Forgot just how soothing and enjoyable this is!

Baby sweater

I haven't been knitting much lately. I've been spending time on my quilting for Project Linus.

Seed Stitch Cowl

I had some yarn left over from my son's slippers, so I thought I'd work up a nice hat. With all the seed stitch discussion we have had in an earlier post, I thought I might as well practice it, since I have never used it for anything. When I got to the place where I needed to decrease, I just couldn't find any good ways to decrease using seed stitch.

SOCKS FOR ALYSON

I finished this pair of socks for my friend, Alyson. I've been working on my Summit Shawl (Wrap), but took a break from it so that I could do her socks. I've been promising her a pair, so thought that I would get them done so that she can wear them while the weather is cold.
