Circular fair isle yoke pullover picture

Giving this another shot!

Circular Yoke Fair Isle

I designed and knit this pullover last month. Wool is Knit Picks "Palette", used US # 4 needles. Knit from bottom up...body and sleeves connected and finished with yoke. I love it when all the math works out right and the visualized design becomes reality!

Sweater Picture

Here is a picture of sweater. Did not attatch first time!

Oldie, but Goodie !

I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments.

WIP: Color Affection Shawl

Just about done with the striped section of the Color Affection Shawl, and then I'm onto the short rows section. Stripes are more subtle with a variegated yarn. If I knit another Color Affection, I'll likely stick with solids/semi-solids for the stripes to stand out more. But the colors are certainly pleasing to the eye.

Little Knitted Projects for Christmas

Well, last time I said I would post pictures of a few other things I made as Christmas gifts. It always takes me forever to go through the laborious task of transferring photos from the digital camera onto the computer.

Socks

Okay, thinking about checking out knitting socks, since the guys here say it's so easy. However, I'm looking for opinions and advice as to yarns, and dpns, or circs and magic loop.
