Lars made a funny post that made me think of this. Howzabout we each share a story about knitting a holiday gift for a guy/s in our life?

I don't wanna...(1st EZ BSJ)

I don't want to finish this. I'm having too much fun handing this amorphous piece of knitting to friends to see if they can figure out what it actually is.

The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

So I promised my friend Tom I'd put up pictures of the Christmas stockings I've been working on. And here they are.

While the hubby bear was sleeping this morning, I finished one of his Christmas presents - the Koolhas hat I mentioned in my post a few weeks ago.

Joe Supported My Yarn Habit

A while back, Joe-in-Wyoming recommended a shop in Casper that he frequents. Today, I went to that yarn shop he recommended. The Dancing Sheep Yarn and Fiber store is a very nice store.

Academic knitting

This is a question I've had for a while, how man of you learn a certain technique just because you think you should know it?

Endless green

Take two brownsheep lambspride worsted, and one aracana magellanes in green, do a checkerboard with a garter border, switching yarns each row and knit until the first skein runs out.

my first project

Here are a couple of pictures of my first ever completed project. It’s a two-color spiral rug crocheted from jute gardening twine, two strands per color. Half double crochet throughout.

Baktus Scarf

I am heading home soon and didn't want to start a big project. I found the Baktus Scarf by Strikkelise on Ravelry and it seemed to fit the bill.

Cabled sweater vest

This is the sweater vest I finished recently. I'm very proud of it -- though of course as I was getting ready to photograph it last night, I noticed a pretty glaring (to me, anyway) error.
