The Scottish Sweater Industry

Very good video about the Scottish sweater (jumper) industry on YouTube. Go to YouTube and type in "Pringle of Scotland Animation by David Shrigley - Life Behind The Scenes". You’ll love it.

Custom-made circular needles

I would like to find circular needles with a long needle part. Does anyone know of anyone who makes custom circs?

I was following Joe’s recent discussion of flat knitting with circular needles quite enviously. I am knitting a 21” wide doormat. It’s from The Knitted Rug by Donna Druchunas.

my first project

Here are a couple of pictures of my first ever completed project. It’s a two-color spiral rug crocheted from jute gardening twine, two strands per color. Half double crochet throughout.
