Finaly after 8 months it is finished

A round the first of this year I found out that my nephew and his wife were expecting their second child. At that point I started to look at something to knit for the baby. Before I got started we heard that the ultrasound said that it ws going to be a girl.

Beginner knitting course

I am looking at producing an online knitting course. First, for beginners, but if that is successful, I could do some more advanced ones later. Looking for feedback on my list of topics for each segment. What do you think of this?

Pre-course introductions
"What is Knitting?
"The Knit Stitch"
"The Purl Stitch"
"Garter Stitch"
"Stockinette Stitch"
Ten week course

the new yoga....?

Greetings all,

Sorry not to have posted for a while. I'm still here and I'm still knitting - and at last have started Dad's Christmas Cardigan before december so there is a chance it will get finished.

Just came across this article and though you might like to see it:

Latest project - Castiel

Modeled by dear friend/recipient.
This hat took me forever since I was working on it as we listed and sold our home in Burbank and moved to San Luis Obispo. I used double pointed needles and Mirasol Tupa 50/50 merino/silk. Love the yarn. It's a Woolly Wormhead pattern called Castiel. I had to rescue the project from catastrophic stitch droppage a couple times.

Evil Genius Socks

Since June I have been struggling to find a pattern or formula to make what I consider a sock that fits and will nicely adjust to needle size and yarn thicknesses. Thanks Ken in Main for all your help and the suggestion to use Yarmando's Evil Sock Genius lessons. He just makes a sock make sense for me.

Setesdal Sweater

Sweater finished :D! I knitted it for a foreign student who wanted to give his father a real Norwegian Sweater. Knitted in Viking Superwash yarn, and the pattern is from Viking of Norway. I think they have free download for their catalogs :D!
