Breaks in yarn

I am now on my third skein of Lionbrand Fishermen's Wool, Oak Tweed yarn. The first skein had three breaks in the yarn that were deep inside the skein. Two of them were tied with really big and sloppy knots. The third was simply a break, no effort was made to tie it. The second skein was a bit better, only two knots.

Happy Easter

Not quite an Easter Bonnet, but it's as close as I'll be getting.

Birthday sweater

Just finished a sweater for my brother's birthday coming up in June. Not only will he not wear it anytime soon, it's a long shot he'll wear it at all since we live in Arizona. Anyway, thought I'd share.

Vest Progress

Hi Guys,
Thanks to all of you for answering some of my novice questions. I am making progress on my first vest. The back turned out well and the front is growing nicely. I have them pinned down for the photos, but not blocked yet. I thought it would be best to block them both at the same time.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate Easter, Chag semeach to those who celebrate the Pesach (next year in Jerusalem!) and a plain ol' happy Sunday to all others. Peace be with you all!

Here Piggy Piggy!

Well I made another yarn bowl. But this time a little different. I made a pig. LOL. I guess I am having too much fun creating these yarn bowls. I am already thinking what can I do next? Check my website out for more of my story.
Meantime take a look at the couple of pics
Happy Knitting!!

Stop Fingering My Linen

a friend asked if he could commission me to knit him a spring scarf. I already recently gave him a great scarf in autumn colors, but I said OK, not really understanding what he meant by 'commission'. I'm not a fast knitter and if he was planning to pay me by the hour, he can't afford me. (Actually he CAN afford me, but that's beside the point.)
