I am having trouble uploading pictures from my computer to this site. Don't know what I am doing wrong, but nothing appears. Should anyone know what I am doing wrong, please help.
If anyone is interested in seeing what I have been knitting, please visit my blog at:
Well it is the end of the week, and I have finished one of my projects previously mentioned. My one daughter was looking through some of my pattern books and saw a shawl that she really liked. So, I put down her project, after working on it for 3 days. Oh well, let's see what she has picked out.
I have finished my other daughter, "T's" shawl. This can be seen on my blog. The project went quicker than I thought. The only problem with this pattern is that the ends of the knitting needles got caught in the stiches. I had to be careful not to knit the shawl to itself. Which I did once and didn't understand why I the shawl looked as it did. I got so fustrated that I pulled the whole thing apart and re-started it and didn't put it down until I completed it. I should have used circular needles. T says that she really likes it.
Now that I have finished the one shawl, I pulled out a sweater project for myself that I have been working on for over 2 years. It is really a very simple sweater. Unfortunately the pattern of it is not that visible in the photo on my blog. It is a texture, ribbed, knit and purl geometric design. The reason I have not finished is this is for myself and I seem to like to make things for others. I think I will consentrate on this.
The BlanketI mention in my previous entry that I had taught myself how to crochet. A photo of the afgan blanket is also on my blog lower left is my finished product. Not to bad for my first attempt. I did have problems as could never remeber to count. I would just go on my merry way and low and behold my peaks and valleys would not line up correctly.
Well, that's about all I have this week. I want to say thanks to all who welcomed me. I don't feel so alone now as a man who knits.
