Safety Scarf

Here is a scarf I completed during the holidays. Wanted to share for your viewing pleasure. Love it so much I'm working on a second one.

Further on grafting

There was some discussion earlier about provisional cast on, which serves a function very similar to grafting. And now there is a FREE, online Craftsy class with Anne Hanson, Ins & Outs of Grafting, to learn to seamlessly join pieces of any knit fabric for an elegant final result! This is only until April 12, so go and get it quick!

New Security Bug

You may already know this, but there is interesting information concerning a new "bug" on the Internet that perhaps we should all investigate. Web developers and are taking it seriously, as are many others. If you just go to Google and search for "Heartbeat Security Bug" you will find it all over the Internet. You may have already seen it on the news.

Icaro Hat Collage (3)

Another hat as I am working on a scarf. I got the inspiration and there will be a cowl from this pattern as well.

I have been very productive in the past few months. Here is one of my latest hats at less than 50 grams of yarn.

Cannot decide on my next project

I am finishing up another simple lace scarf for a friend of my son. It is a lovely light grey fibre 100% mink. I should be done this weekend. Then I am either going to do Jared Flood's Rock Island Shawl or his Timberline Shawl Collared Cabled Cardigan. What does the group think and which would you like to see first.

Completed socks and a little baby shower gift

So here is the set of completed sock I took a couple pics so you could see it from different angles. Also I had to whip up something for a baby shower the other day and I made some little head bands in crochet for a coworker. Use some Malabrigo lace I had simple but I think her baby girl will look lovely in these.

Brethren Sock #1 Finished

What a great learning experience this was. Here is the finished sock. Now, on to the next one! I took a chance and estimated how much extra yarn I would have and decided to double up on the strands on the toe so that it is reinforced. I had enough, thankfully.

Brethren Socks

Well, I took the plunge and began the Brethren Socks. After studying the pattern and trying to visualize how things would be different using magic loop knitting, I decided to just forge ahead and see what mischief might befall me. After a couple false starts and a few hiccups along the way, as well as encouraging words from Crafty Andy, things went along pretty smoothly.
