Now a blanket LOL

My silk yarn arrived yesterday in the mail. I was a bit skeptical as the pic on ebay wasn't all that clear but the price I paid was great considering how much I would pay for 100% silk at the local yarn store.
Although its a 2 ply, its not a lace weight. Kinda in-between which I am happy about. It would be too thick for a night shirt.

Recent knitting

Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.

The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.

Mock Houndstooth Sweater

Just finished a sweater that I had been working on for a couple of months. The pattern is a mosaic one in which slipped stitches are used to create an effect. Only one colour is used in each row. I used Jamieson and Smith jumper weight Shetland wool and 3.25 needles. I used an applied I-cord for the neck opening.

MWK and MWK/Ravelry

Just a quick thought - thanks Jesse for sparking this -
Do you belong to both Men Who Knit and Ravelry's group, MWK? If so...do you find yourself using one more than the other?

irregular rib raglan with toggle - Teva Durham

Good Evening All, Several years ago I picked up a copy of Loop-d-Loop , more than 40 novel designs by Teva Durham because I was drawn to this particular raglan. It is an interesting design knitted in the round with an irregular rib with asymmetrical arm holes. The right is shaped to accommodate a simple drop shoulder sleeve, while the left side has a raglan placket to match a raglan sleeve.

Remember I said I liked cables?

Here's a couple of pics of items I've knitted over the last 12 months that all have my favourite thing ever .... cables!

1. A jumper for my new great-nephew using Cascade 220 Superwash from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits.

Bricker - Designed by Anne Hanson - 2 done

Morning All, I really liked this patten by Anne. Fun and quick. I like my personal twist with the orange toe and chartreuse heel. Hope it shapes up for a fulfilled weekend for everyone. Regards to All, JRob
