All Clogged Up!

Damn, that sounds awful!

Hey y'all,

After the next, oh, I don't know how many, projects that I have in the back of my head.  (simple.....isn't it?)  I'd like to do a pair of clogs.  (before that freezing weather moves into Texas. ) I had joined a Yahoo group that was, for the most part, totally useless and would like to hear suggestions from people who have done them as well as those who have done felting.  (it's good to be able to say again that this is my "first time")

Any thoughts or ideas are More than welcome.

Best,

Chris

Hello y'all

Guys,

Good to be here and to all of you who have given me a warm welcome, thank you.

 I'm looking for help and inspiration and just looking for some good hang out time with everyone.

I'm currently trying to get together a group of guys in the Dallas area who want to get together as a knitting group.  So if you are interested email me at cjvandenburg@yahoo.com.

 Thanks again, and I hope we shall all become good friends.

 Chris

Completed Projects -- A Teddy Bear and Baby Eyelet Blanket

It's amazing what nieces and nephews can motivate me to do -- like knit stuffed animals and baby blankets!  Tongue out

As I put in my profile, my mom taught me to knit dish rags when I was about 5 years old.  So I did these simple, garter stitch dish rags off and on growing up until about the time I hit my early teens, then stopped knitting all together.  In my mid-twenties, I decided to pick knitting up again.  Rather than knit up something realistic for my skill level, like a garter or stockinette stitch scarf, I jumped right into a cable-knit sweater done flat, teaching myself from books.  Well, I worked on that for a few years off and on, completed the front, one sleeve, and about 1/3 of the back.  The poor thing lied fallow for ages, but I never threw it out.

Doctor Who Pattern Book

I acquired this treasure for $1 at the Schenectady Public Library's semi-annual used book sale this morning. Originally published in 1984, it contains a number of knit and sewn garments, objects and toys (see the contents page). The white v-neck in the links below is really quite nice.  But I think I'm going to knit a K-9 toy!!!
