I'm planning a trip to Toronto and can you recommend a guy-friendly LYS.
I have been lurking for quite a while now and just wanted to share some updates to what I have been knitting since I started learning last April.
That's me standing and the sweater I'm wearing is my first major project. The pattern is Vanille (http://www.bluealvarez.com/bluealva/portfolio/pf-vanille.html) and it was made with sea green acrylic yarn. The sweater is warm and fits just right.
The cellphone cozy in the picture is my gift to my SnB groupmate during our Christmas celebration last December.
The shrug in the picture is my second major project. It is a gift to another friend. I just made up the structure of the shrug and just used the Feather and Fan stitch pattern. It was made with cotton yarn from China.
Other finished projects include a beanie hat, scarf, shawl and several practice swatches including a dishcloth.
I am currently making a scarf for a friend. The pattern is here http://www.crystalpalaceyarns.com/cpy/patterns/scarves/cameo-faggotst-scarf.html. I'm using the same cotton yarn from China in green and brown combined together.
