Remember the Skacel knitted boxers KAL ? Well I joined in quietly at home - but never quite got round to finishing the project. At last I have finished mine - in time for the winter weather - and they are great. I'd really reccoment the pattern to anyone who has not knitted boxers before - great fun ! They'd be ideal for playing outside in the sunshine in the summer too - or for keeping warm underneath in the winter. Whatever floats your boat. More pics on my ravelry page.
How lucky we stranded knitters are lately! Three new technique books in about as many months. The latest is “Knitting with Two Colors: Techniques for Stranded Knitting and Designing Color-Patterned Garments” by Meg Swanson & Amy Detjen, published by Schoolhouse Press.
Here is my first attempt at knitting fair isle. I designed the color pattern myself from a hat pattern used at a class taken at my LYS, Piedmont Yarn. I chose to end it with three-points and bound off using the three needle method (so cool). I love the way it came out - and my niece is going to love it!
Came across this today as I was watching Graham Norton clips. :)

I get some awesome emails from people all over the world with something of the same theme: they're now grown adults, with children of their own, still holding on to a teddy bear given to them when they were tots. Some are hidden in closets, some are proudly on display, and some have been heir loomed off to a younger generation who we all hope will cling to the little bear with love.
I have been a knitter and a part of this community (mainly on Facebook) for some time now, so I figured I could introduce myself shortly :)
And the Wyoming Winds have returned with more gusto than ever. Last week they swept into the Casper area with a small yet beautiful break Thursday morning. Then they blew back in and brought a bit of rain and snow with them Saturday night. One must love horizontal precipitation no matter it's make-up when living in Wyoming.
