Introduction

Hi. My name is Eric, nice to meet everybody! It doesn't look like there have been any new posts in quite a while, I hope this forum is still active.

I've been into fiber arts for quite a while, but I only recently decided to take up knitting. I also crochet, naalbind, knook, weave, and spin my own yarn.

Felted Slipper Boots

Hey Fellas, hoping you can help me with a little advice. I'm looking to make some felted slipper boots for a rugged, Johnny Cash-listening, heavy-silver-jewelry-wearing, vintage-car-collecting, denim-n-boots-n-leather-wearing kind of guy to use for around the garage. He has a silly pair right now that he got at some surf shop and they're falling apart.

Great Aran sweater mystery

My son gave me a sweater this week. It's a "hand me up" as he has outgrown it. His mom bought it for him at the thrift shop. I really love this sweater. It's 100% wool made by Carraig Donn in Ireland. I've looked at a lot of Carraig Donn sweaters online, and I've never seen anything quite like this.

Mutant fingerless glove

Well, I have begun my adventures in making gloves, and the results are amusing, at least. I've wanted to make gloves for some time, especially fingerless, and I have a pattern I downloaded to get to "sometime" so when a friend asked if I'd make her a pair of gloves, I thought I'd take the plunge.

Christmas is near ...

Just a little reminder that there's not a whole lot of time before Christmas! Here's something I think you may like to make a great Christmas present for someone you know - and you can always get one for yourself as well!

Decreases for 2X2 ribbed hat?

I'm doing a gauge swatch with a knitting sheath and some US1 needles. In keeping with some good advice, the swatch is a hat. Like, if you're making a swatch anyway, why not make it something useful?
