This is a very cute square and I got distracted, but was able to make two with the same flaw, so it was a design lol!

Finally I finished my first knitted pillow. I used Cascade 220 wool yarn (#5 needles) with the "checkerboard" stitch on both sides.

Men's Midwest Knitting Retreat

I had the pleasure of hanging out with ChiKnitterGuy today at the Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair. We met lots of wonderful fiber folks and each of us made some strategic purchases.

1st Sweater

I am trying to embark on my first ever sweater. I have never done a swatch, but I understand if the garment is going to git when I'm done, I've got to start work in the correct gauge.

This is a repost from another list. Colin is a socknitter from the UK. He has some medical problems, but is very prolific as a socknitter.
