Sweater Blues

Hi everyone! I think it's honestly been about a year or so since I posted here, but I've been slowly making my way back into the knitting world since I graduated college and have been pursuing a lot of different jobs and ventures.

Anyone in Memphis?

I've just relocated to the Memphis area and am looking for a Men's Knitting group on Rav... Trouble is there doesn't seem to be one. Is anyone else in the Memphis area and interested in joining a Memphis Men's Knitting group with the aim of a monthly knit night?

Strengthening a Stitch

I am working on a shrug and I am doing the sleeves without a seam by knitting with circular needles. I am just about ready to switch from knitting in a circle to going back and forth to create the center portion of the shrug.

Cable hell

After I finish this tam it's going to be a very long time before I perform another cable. I used to think they were fun.

Picking or Throwing??

Hey All,
So I am a thrower (english) and in-between projects. I'm thinking of trying continental for my next (simple!) project, and was wondering how did the switch go for any of you out there? I have given it a half-hearted attempt a couple of times, get frustrated and go back to throwing....but have heard picking is much faster which I would like to be!!

thoughts/suggestions??

thanks!
