Been Awhile

Wow it has been sometime since I have written something.

So here we go.

I am so happy with the response that has come from my forum topic about dish clothes. It has produced some interesting conversation and some links to great sites that have many patterns on them..

The only down fall to this is that my wife feels that now I am spending as much time with her as I should, but hey I can't help it I love to knit and it is hard to set the needles down once I start knitting. 

Well I am off to go for a bike ride with my wife, we both finally each have a bike to ride.

Pillows?

Hello,

Has anyone here ever knit covers for throw pillows?  I'm thinking the silk yarn created from the recycled saris would look really wonderful covering a pillow form (or three or four) and thrown nonchallantly onto my sofa.

I would imagine it would be easy enough to come up with a pattern, but it would be helpful to hear if any Menwhoknit have done it...

Thanks,

Jonathan 

zip up vest

Hi guys I want to make a zip up vest for myself. I have found a few patterns around but nothing that I really like.

Two of them have called for a gauge that is about 2 stitches to the inch. I don't really want something made with bulky yarn. 

I was wondering if any of the guys on this site have made any vests with zippers and if so if they could share pictures or pattern sources.

Thanks

It's Official!

First, that I am finally home after 1,587 miles of driving!

Second, that Dallas is now having the second mens knitting group meeting (I missed the maiden voyage 3 weeks ago)  and clever, clever and very talented Michael Cook came up with a name for the group that is both descriptive and ROFL hillarious. Get this!!  "Fruits and Fiber"!!  Is that a great name or what?  I love it!

 And for all of you still clogging out there.  I have been way too busy to finish mine and there is no hurry now for myself, but still want to see results and how you all are getting along!

update on jacky fee sweater

Hi guys, just hought I would post an update on my progress. I have to say I am really enjoying this project. Its my first project using circular needles and am really enjoying using them. I have finished the main body of the sweater and am now working on the sleeves.

I thought I was gonna have problems with the sleeves and I was right. I decided to do the full sleeve. I followed what the book instructed but found there were to many stitches to add on the last row of ribbing and it made the knitting really tight also the maths didnt work out as well as I had hoped. So out it came. Attempt number 1
