Ridgeway Lite from Cabin Fever

Has anyone ever made the sweater called Ridgeway Lite from Cabin Fever? It's seamless and knit in the round. I found a blog that featured it and I like the look of it. But, before I spend the money on it, I was wondering if any of you guys have made it? Thanks.

Scrabble Tile Bag

I had some leftover Peruvian Wool roving yarn so I thought I would make something practical. Nothing special, just something for my hands to do. I didn't block it simply because it's going to live in a box and used only once a week.

Knitting Needles in Space -- fun science

I like that an astronaut took knitting needles as part of his personal "crew preference". Here's a bit of physics that is a bit different from the physics of yarn. Just a fun thing to think about.

Strengthening a Stitch

I am working on a shrug and I am doing the sleeves without a seam by knitting with circular needles. I am just about ready to switch from knitting in a circle to going back and forth to create the center portion of the shrug.

Hiking in wool

Cold weather brings out the best in wool, don't you think? It was a beautiful, sunny 30-degree day here in Chicagoland. The critters in the forest that were foraging for food, stopped and applauded my knitting prowess! LOL.
Stay warm.

Lace Shrug for my 85-year-old mom

Hi guys,
I have searched online for a shrug patterns in all the free places and even the pay sides of those same sites. From what I can see, they patterns would be too difficult for me, or not exactly what I wanted. I'd almost need someone to sit next to me and mentor me through the project.

Kindle Fire Sock

I had a lot of fun making this. I have a friend who bought a new Kindle Fire but didn't get a case for it. So, I thought I'd make one for him. I used Peruvian Highland Wool, 4.5-5 sts per inch. I didn't take a picture of it before I sewed the bottom shut and blocked it, but it really did look like a sock, thus the name.

Soliciting Sock Suggestions

I would like to begin making socks using circular needles. I know that DPN patterns can be adapted, but does anyone know of any patterns out there written specifically for circular needles that a novice might be able to understand? I appreciate it.

American Beauty Rose

I am looking to find the American Beauty Rose pattern for afghans. Does anyone know what it is? I found it online in Ravelry and it references the book The Ultimate Book of Afghans, but I was wondering if that particular pattern can be acquired without buying the entire book. If not, then I'll probably spring for the book. Thanks.

Christmas Scarf

I got my wife's red scarf finished with a whole day to spare before Christmas. It's in the feather and fan design and it is 6 feet long, so my wife can fold it midway and then tuck the ends through the center in kind of a half Windsor knot. The second picture is more true to the color. I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted Serrano, 60% Pima Cotton, 40 Modal.
