I'm a HORRIBLE knitter

The hat that I just posted was the first non-lace thing I've done in a long while. It was knit in the round and done completely in stockinette. My tension is awful!

Flapper hat

No - not flap hat - flapper - think 1920's. I designed this for my wife but she hasn't been around when I had the camera out so my dog (Maggie) modeled it. It looks MUCH better on my wife!

There once was a man from Nantucket.......

......... who is trying to learn how to knit two socks on one needle and said "darn" (for those of you who know me, I am paraphrasing here)

I'm gonna get this if it's the last thing I do!!!!

Custom-made circular needles

I would like to find circular needles with a long needle part. Does anyone know of anyone who makes custom circs?

Hats for Christmas

Yes I know it's rather late, but I've just managed to organise lots of the photos.

Hi guys...I'm new here, and I've got the knitting bug like you wouldn't believe (or maybe you would). Here's my first real project - a scarf I knitted for my wife.

Headed to Seattle

So it looks like I'll be in Seattle for a few weeks on business. Any LYS that are a must visit? Any suggestions for a fellow knitter?

Any suggestions would be welcome!

BSJ Blues

Uggh!!!! Is the BSJ really supposed to be this difficult? This is the second time that I have done this pattern and, again, I'm ripping things out for the fourth time.
