1st Grandchild due next month!

Is this colorful or what? While certainly not colors I would have chosen my son & daughter-in-law picked these for me to use to knit this blanket.

A quick project:

After feeling like my knitting projects are taking forever to finish, I decided to take a few days off to do a fun crochet project. I made a puppy beanie for my 6 month old nephew. The project took a few hours, less than a day if I would have worked on it without stopping. I've had a lot of rave reviews (and a few requests as usual).

Signature Needles

I have heard much about Signature Needles and would like to ask you guys your opinions. I am interested in a set of 5 sock needles and realize I have a choice of length and also of the type of point. Have you used them? Do you know anyone who has?
OR - what kind of needles do you use. I have tried 3 different kinds of wooden needles and do not like them.

Progress made

My lace knitting journey continues. I finished the caps and blogged about it. Thought I might give them as gifts but then decided to keep them. Now I've actually moved on to knitting a cardigan. The pattern is Kelmscott by Carol of Sunday knits. The yarn recommended is of course one of the reasons I chose this pattern. It is an angora/merino blend, which is pretty much all I do in handspun.

A Turkish Brother! :)

This appeared in yesterday's "Zaman" newspaper. Interesting that it was considered unusual enough to make the news. :)

Biting off the Big One

Well Guys I did it, I started my own blog. Take a look at it and join. It is for those of us who use knitting boards, Knifty Knitters and circular knitting machines. http://fibergadgetguy.blogspot.com/ It is nothing fancy but just a little part of the internet to call my own.

OT...Knitting time

I have some news, we (my partner and I) have purchased a holiday home on Big Tancook Island here in Nova Scotia. Lucy Neatby lives just around the corner from us. The Ferry ride is 1 hour each way so I will get lots of knitting done. lol
