Fake Isle Hat

I am not happy with this hat. I followed the instructions for the decreases and I think it is about 10 rows too long. This will be for my Father for Christmas.

Japanese Vogue Sweater

I cast off last night and am pleased with the outcome (though I definitely need to lose some weight so I can look svelter in this).

Double-Pointed needles from Knit Picks

I recently had a hankering to knit a pair of socks using DPNs, despite my love of circular needles.

Tight for Christmas

Since money is so tight this year; slow sales in the pottery business, I solicited friends and relatives to send me skeins of there favorite yarns.

Drop Spindles

I am looking into learning how to hand spin my own yarn. I would like to start with a drop spindle. I wondered if anyone had a suggestion of a reputable site that sells drop spindles?
