Yikes! Fibre Queen

I have casually mentioned lately in the hearing of my partner that I would like to learn to spin. Well, I just opened my Christmas presents and I am still in shock.

Any out of the closet Bi-Knituals?

I know that most of us knit the way we were taught, whether the English/North American or the continental style. I only do it the standard Canadian way, yarn in right hand etc. etc.

Kilt Hose

Does anyone know where I can get some patterns for men's kilt hose?

Swift?

I am interested in getting a swift, but since it is not the sort of thing you can amble into your local Zeller's and pick up, I might have to order it.

OOf! Shovelling

Just out shovelling snow for the last hour. Now inside for a while until I have to do it again in a couple of hours. Or until the plow goes down our road. A good day to stay inside and knit.

Somebody Stop Me, Please!!!!

I have a huge stash of yarn, more projects and stuff than I will do in years, yet I cant seem to stop myself from getting more. One of my LYSs is closing and having their final sale.

Getting Started with Lace

I was just admiring Tom's posted picture of the Queen Anne Lace shawl that he knit for his sister. I would like to try doing some lace knitting but, I admit, it scares the bejeebers out of me.

Hurrah!

I know this is old hat to most of you guys, but I just did something in my knitting that I have never done before and I feel like celebrating. lol. I am knitting a waistcoat with a lot of cabling.

Help!

I just sent my sister a sweater which I knitted. The problem is, somehow I screwed up on the size and the arms are way too wide and floppy.
