Dragon Scale prayer shawl

Just finished a prayer shawl using the Dragon Scale pattern, which was a new stitch for me. Not sure which side is the "right side" as they both look interesting and give the fabric a nice texture.

experience felting?

Hi guys,
Does anybody have experience knitting for felt? I want to make about 180x60cm of felt. Any experience with shrinkage and what stitches felt up best? Is a pattern recognizable after felting? Should it be knit tight or loose?

Cary Grant Learning to Knit in "Mister Lucky"

I'm sitting here joining panels on my Hollywood knit project. As usual, Turner Classic Movies is on TV, and this morning is "Mr. Lucky" starring Cary Grant and Laraine Day (1943). Cary has joined a women's auxiliary that raises funds for the war effort, mostly to get closer to Laraine.

UFO sock photos

This is the latest iteration of a sock I've been fooling around with for the past few years and more intensively in the past six months. I would like to make about 10 pairs of socks for myself that I can put through the wash with everything else, like I do with store-bought socks. I have used Ann Norling's Adult Basic Sock pattern which Bill very kindly walked me through a few years back.

Big and Tall Sweater (4XLT)

I am looking for suggestions or a pattern to knit myself a sweater. As the subject suggests, the sweater needs to be sized 4XLT. I have searched Ravelry and other sites but I come up with nada. I am not skilled enough to take a pattern and rewrite it to adjust for size. I'd love a hoodie. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't be the first to have this problem, can I?

Wedding Veil

It has been almost a year since I last posted anything and 3.5 years since I posted my blog about the wedding veil I made for my daughter. I finally have an "in action" photo. She was married on 08/10/13. Mmario was the designer for the shawl, Vera Wang was the designer for the dress, and I have no idea who designed the cowboy boots she wore.

Another sweater

I knit a sweater for myself with Briggs and Little Sport (one of my favourite yarns) and 3.25 mm needles. I asked my friend Miguel to model it for me. I have made this collar many times on my sweaters because I can button them up to the top and it serves as a scarf or cowl. I am going to Europe next week and will take it with me. It should be the right weight for autumn weather.

I decided to make a cushion. The next cushion is already in the works :-)

my first sock, try 2

I've put the yellow "discovery" sock aside and am doing one using the Lifestyle Toe Up Socks - No Swatch this time. I also like this yarn a lot more; it's a deep teal with darker heathery tones. Knit Picks Swish worsted (superwash merino), Rainforest Heather, on size 3 needles (can you say dense fabric?).
