I recently knit Jared Flood's Habitat using his yarn, Shelter. The thing that bummed me out was the way it came out a bit short.
Here's the result of an attempt at a scarf that would look nice on a fussy dresser and coordinate with black jackets. We're talking flat, sophisticated, and of course, soft.
At long last, after a couple years of wishing, the Men's Knitting Retreat at Easton Mountain is just a few months away, and I'm planning on being there!
...at least, I think these ones are. It's all because of my indecisiveness. I loved each of the colors involved, so I tried out a couple combos.
I got to test run some patterns for a certain male designer recently, and the e-book has just been released! So that means I can finally share the projects I've been so happy to knit.
This morning I was skimming through a dated collection of even more dated songs... we're talking reminiscing material for the century-old folks.
First, a question: what's your favorite pattern for a dressy men's scarf?
I'm not a huge Halloween guy, but working a job that requires I participate in a costume party has helped me to get over my aversion.
I like to watch Project Runway, and while I'm in no way a fashion guru, as my wardrobe would quickly reveal, I'd say this is the closest I've gotten in my lace knitting to sportswear (looks, not function).
After juggling about five shawls for a time, I'm happy to have finished my Traveling Woman shawl. I was encouraged to knit it after seeing Ron's (Ravelry name moreliaman) version.
