Jigraknits's blog

It's been a while & Tooting my own horn.

When I look at the September date of my last post, I realize that life has taken over from blogging and reading other people's blogs. Lots has been going on here and I've missed so much. I really must work on coming to this site at least twice a week.

On my personal blog, I've got lots of FOs you can see scarves (with accompanying patterns), socks, toques, etc. I'm almost all ready for the holidays.

To toot my own horn, I was just interviewed by a Chilean knitting forum about men who knit. If you read Spanish, you can check it out at
RevésDerecho (http://www.revesderecho.com/modules/articles/). It's not KnittyGritty (congrats Charles!, btw), but it's something.

Have a great holiday season all!

What are you making for holiday gifts?

I've started a third scarf as a gift; one of the many I hope to churn out by December. It's Sept now, so I hope it's okay to bring up the holidays amongst the guys here. Laughing See my blog for a pix.

Right from the fleece.

I made a promise to my kids' grade 3 teacher that I would spin and knit her something if she gave me some fleece. She came through and I've started the process. Go to jigraknits.livejournal.com for photos.

Alpaca Socks

Hi. I finished my Peruvian alpaca socks and am working on a second pair.

Scarf Finished

2 out of 5 scarves for the Christmas list are now done. This one was fun because of the combinations of odds and ends from my until-now-untouched 10 year old stash.

I'm working on a new scarf design.

I'm trying something new (to me). I've cast on enough stitches to make a scarf, but lengthwise, with scrap yarn. I'm knitting half of the width and casting off. Then I'm knitting up the cast on stitches and going in the other direction. It's a shell-like lace pattern so the pull of the different angles is creating an interesting effect. See pictures of my progress so far here.

New Knitting Group in the Niagara Area

Hi.
I'm going to start a group in the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. There are many ideas under consideration, but I thought I'd ask for some feedback. Could you go to my blog and complete the poll? Thanks.

Charles
