Some Turkish Socks

A friend of mine from the East Black Sea recently opened a cafe. His mom is the one who made the Hemshin socks I posted several months ago. She's now selling some of her socks and working in the cafe, so I thought is show you some of them.

Quick and Easy Baby Blanket

Last week I posted some pictures of a prayer shawl using the mock cable rib stitch. Fortunately, I had enough yarn left over to make a baby blanket for a friend's new arrival. Here's a link to the pattern in case anyone needs a go to pattern for a baby blanket. Free dowload.

Summer projects or Summer therapy.

This summer has been busy for me. First adjusting to the the lifestyle of semi-retirement. Part of this semi-retirement comes with more time, and to fill this time I started a few projects.
My problem is if I go on Raverly, pick up latest "Knitting Traditions" I feel as if I HAVE to try that pattern out. I end up with 5 or 6 started projects but no ends.

Mock Cable Rib Stitch Prayer Shawl

Greetings! I just finished a bulky prayer shawl for my church and thought I'd post some pictures and a link to a free download in case any other men are like-minded. The fabric has a nice drape and I love the texture.

Just a 'Hello' and a few completed projects

Hey guys

Just wanted to introduce myself and show some completed projects. I mainly knit prayer shawls for a group at church, but my Partner has me knitting scarves for his nieces and the occasional hat for himself. :) The Entrelac shawl was one of a pair that I knitted for some friends who are adopting two little girls from China, I also knitted matching teddy bears to go with them.

Stitches Midwest

I am looking forward to visiting the STITCHES Midwest Knitting conference. Anyone else in my neck of the woods going? I am happily only about 5 miles away. I think the prices of the lessons are way too steep, but I still want to go to perhaps pick up some yarn or other things that may catch my eye.
