FO - Hiking Socks from _The Knitting Man(ual)_

Well, they're done and they fit and I like them. They're very comfortable as far as I'm concerned.

Here is Thumper posing in his stripy red sweater. I made it out of some Trekking sock yarn.

Montera Scarf

So here's my lacy scarf that I just finished blocking. If you want to make this scarf, you can find the stitch pattern in Volume 3 of Harmony Knitting Stitches. It's the "Spiral and Eyelet Panel."

Spit Splicing

Those of you who don't know what this is: Look it up. It is easily the most fun and disgusting thing I have ever done in my history as a knitter.

It makes me feel like a real man.

Shuttles and Oberlaender

Had a full-on day yesterday - started with my first weaving class in which the teacher got me from zero to pattern weaving in three hours.

WIP - Hideous Tie

This is my first attempt at a tie. I chose a yarn that I thought would make the ugliest, most hideous looking tie possible. I am sure I succeeded. LOL

I have finished the Column of Leaves scarf. I was a bit uneasy about the blocking and even found myself trying to convince me that I didn't REALLY need to. boy was I wrong.
