I am writing this question with regard to a sweater pattern in the new 'Guy Knits' book.
[mostly non-knitting content; be warned]
I was stuck at home this weekend and finished my first cable scarf. The original pattern called for three cables but I expanded it to 5. I also added some ribbing to the top and bottom.
I found a new knitting podcast last night. It's called Miss Flip Knits: For Procrastinating Knitters and the first episode came out April 4th.
I am knitting myself a sweater and I only have 1.2 sleeves to go and the neck and yet somehow I am stuck in a rut.
This past week, I completed the Kitchen Sink Bag designed by Faye Whyte that is posted on Knitty.com. I had knit the itsybitsy bag the week before.
I got a set of bamboo dpn's from eBay...yes, they are off brand, and yes, they probably aren't all that great....but, they have allowed me to finish about 80% of the first sock for my daughter!!!
This is my version of the Dragon Scales scarf from one of the pages of a page-a-day knitting calendar. The pattern is also available on knittingpatterncentral.com.
I was looking at the submission guidelines for Knitty.com and they are specifically asking for men's patterns.
Sunday morning, and the Best Beloved has left to teach a meditation program for the day. It's just me, Brindle the Plott Hound, Roger the Cat, and the fish.
