Carpet knitting?

I saw this article about a male knitter who makes felted carpets. It's on the Brownsheep blog homepage.
I was glad to see that the sex of the knitter was never presented as an oddity or curiosity -- only the fact that he knits left-handed.
I want to see the bear rug!

Hi - I've been so swamped in work for several months that knitting had really fallen by the wayside. Now I'm deciding which laid-aside project to finish first.

Looking for sock pattern

Hi guys,
I"m looking for a toe-up sock that uses Judy's magic cast on, and is made with worsted weight. I have a pattern that fits 8" circumference but I need 9 or 9.5". Does anyone know of one? Or, do you know how I should make adjustments to a smaller sock?

Crown Prince

I have not posted any FO's for awhile so here is my latest effort. It is from the book "The Haapsalu Shawl". Took me six months but I now feel more confident with "Nupps" lol.

Socks: take 2

Getting ready to start my 2nd pair of socks.
Picked up some really nice sock yarn
2 balls of Deborah Norville - Serenity collection
50%merino 25%bamboo 25%nylon
The thin size intimidates me, needed new dpn's for this one
Asked, Answered, Found and Ground! (yes more homemade needles)
These are smaller than US1's but not quite 0's (are there 0.75's?)

Gift for Aphrodite

Hey guys. I'm a new member here and I wonder if you guys can point me in the right direction. I am looking to make a shawl in ocean/water colors as a tribute to Aphrodite, Goddess of the sea, love, beauty, and sexuality. I've been trolling through Ravelry with moderate success and I'm hoping someone here can point me to that one pattern that makes me go "Ah-ha!"


Finished my first pair of socks

Well last night at 11:00 pm(during PBS documentary "Kind Hearted Woman" I finished my first pair of kniitted socks. And they joy I felt when I put them on for the first time. It was in heaven!. They are 75 % merino wool, and 25 % nylon. Paton. Although the pics show a bit of brown (why I do not know) they are a lightly shaded greys and blacks. with a bit of twist in the yarn.
