Corydon man's sweater published!

Check out my new pattern, Corydon, in the latest issue of Knitter's Magazine! It's a comfy pullover and was really difficult to send away... I might have to make another for myself!

You can find it on ravelry here:

Vest - the final step and a few questions.

The ribbing is finished on the arm holes and all I have left is the neck ribbing which brings me to a question - I don't know, maybe it doesn't matter but where should I start picking up stitches - at the shoulder seam? Also, because I'm a swimmer my chest is larger in proprtion to my shoulders than the average guy - not really attractive but it is what it is.

Needed: Fairisle Sleeveless Vest Patterns!

I am earnestly searching for fairisle (stranded) sleeveless vest patterns. I want modern patterns because the vintage ones don't fit. I am hopeless at adapting patterns with a repeat design so I would like to go the easy route and just buy new patterns.

Can anyone help here?

Happy Friday

Happy Friday Every one. I cant wait to get out of work and go home and relax this weekend. Don't have much to show right now. Had started some sock but I've started them over three times already. Trying them tow at a time but some how I got my pattern all tangled the first time so pull off the needle and restarted.

Qiviut lace scarf

After three months and 150+ hours, I finally finished a qiviut lace scarf for my mother. The scarf was knit with Moco Yarns natural fingerweight qiviut blend (45% Qiviut/45% Merino/10% Silk). I used a #1 needle with a gauge of 9 stitches/12 rows to an inch. I was really captivated with the project...the yarn was so soft and downy....I often knit an hour or more a day on the scarf.
