Joben's Back - Jane Ellison's Noro Men

Good Evening All,

Well the back for Jane Ellison's pattern Joben came off the needles just before supper. Thought you'd enjoy seeing the progress. It measures 22" wide X 27-1/2" long. Now I've got a major decision to make. Do I do it as a pull over as she designed it or put a zipper down the front as I have been contemplating. I think I'll sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.

Jack Frost Nipping at the Pumpkins

We've had our first heavy frost this week in St. Louis (but today is forecast to be 70). Almost finished my grandson's last sweater for the season and was thinking what to do next and thought I'd do my first cock sock/willie warmer. Anyone know of a good pattern and want to join me in knitting one up? I thought us guys could have some fun with a short project together.

AAArgh Too!! - Updated

Yesterday was cold and damp in St. Louis. Wife out of town visiting the new grandson this past week so I spent the day at the yarn shop knitting in the company of friends. I got a lot done on Bennett's ribbed baby jacket. Came home had supper and complete the jacket at 9:00 pm and went to put it together and had trouble. Found a mistake and had to rip out three hours of work.
