I just completed this pillow. It was supposed to be a present for a friend of mine who's getting married, but I'm not sure it's good enough for a present.
Following MMario's info regarding a website selling a great variety of yarn from Turkey, RickeScott and I decided to investigate here in Istanbul.
I have started a new sweater with a Faroese allover design that I found in Sheila McGregor's "Scandinavian Knitting".
Brad (ksmarguy) and I made it back from Vegas safe and sound.
I was contacted by a friend from Bear411 who has a friend who raises llamas and alpacas (among other critters). He's looking to sell fiber and is new at it.
Am ready to block a bunch of projects... 2 scarfs, a neck warmer and a shawl...
Never having "blocked" before, I thought I would ask the experts.
Here's my latest pair of socks. The yarn is Lana Grossa with Aloe Vera-- the colorway is "Arizona." I sent them to my sis for her b-day.
I decided to knit up some stockings so that for Christmas my friends would receive a stocking with their stocking stuffers.
Friday night I went to Third Friday in town...the artsy stores stay open till about 9, and offer free snacks and music, etc.
This is my first Entrelac project. The scarf has not been blocked yet. Brian Kohler, who designs for Skacel, taught this Entrelac Scarf pattern at the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat.
