A New Hat Project

Thought I would step out of my comfort zone and try some fun cabling. Color coding the patterns seems like a wise thing to do. Time will tell.

Ribbons, The Tour, But Not Related (a cross post from my blog)

First let us discuss the ribbons. Do you remember this?

BT Men Vol 1

Just love Brooklyn Tweed's Men Vol 1. I see several projects I'll need to complete. Love Jared's & his friends designs.

Finished Vest

Just finished the vest I have been working on. It's a nice moss green. Light enough to wear during the summer - at least in San Francisco where our summers can be a little cooler than the rest of the country. It'll look nice with a white t-shirt, or even a dress shirt. Thanks to those who helped when I couldn't figure out the pattern. As with most projects, I learned a lot!

Blocking Question

I blocked the sweater I made and, simply put, it grew! If I reblock it and reshape it by pushing the yarn tighter together and pinning it, should it then stay put? The arms did grow a few inches more that I had wanted and if I can't make is smaller by reblocking it, then I can always rip out a few inches and redo the last few inches.

Well, deep subject, finally am settled down to the significant business of becoming a legitimate knitter and putting in the due diligence. always one needs tools. OK, I need some serious input about DPN's because I want to be able to do socks, hats, and fingerless gloves. Maybe even ones with fingers sometime.

Back with the needles

Good morning gentlemen,
I'm back with needles and yarn in my hands. The error of my ways was made clear to me from a fellow member on here, PHEW! The kind and caring words made me see the light.

I've found a knitting group, Seneca Falls Knitting Club. While composed of women until this point, they welcomed me.
