Hello everyone,
I just joined the group and picked up knitting again and was wondering if anyone knows of any groups around NE Ohio?

Sweater bottom ribbing and cuff ribbing

Hi guys,
I am at the bottom of the sweater I am making for my son and am trying to decide whether I should use a 2x2 rib or a 1x1 rib. What have you guys experienced. I have always used 2x2 but wondered if a 1x1 would look better. It's a very plain raglan sweater with stockinette stitch. My son likes his clothing to be simple and understated. Any suggestions?

October Socks are done.

The October socks turned out quite nice, despite having to knit them with 4 needles instead of my usual 5. I think it stretches and distorts the stitches but it couldn't be helped as the Size 0/ 2.0 mm double points I used only had the 4 needles. The Classic Elite Alpaca Sox was nice to work with and I think the person destined to receive this pair of socks will love them.

Once again, should this entry not allow me to upload the photos, they can be found on my Ravelry projects page.

Summer tank top

This took forever on a SK700 knitting machine with lace carraige. I could have done it faster by hand.

Facebook Group

I am trying to join the Men Who Knit group on Facebook and my request has been pending for a couple of days. Is there anyone in this group that could accept my request to join?

Spirit Day 2015

I've posted a notice here before and want to remind everyone that Spirit Day is this Thursday, October 15th. I encourage all members to wear purple that day as a sign to any LGBTQ young person that may see them that they are loved and supported as they make their way through life and any difficulties they face. Thank you.

Getting back into it

Hey guys... I haven't knitted in a while but I want to make something now that winter is approaching. I'm not super advanced. I can do ribbing and knit on the round and such. I would like to make something for myself for once because everything I've ever made has been for other people. My hair is kinda shaggy and long and curly at the moment so I need something that can hold that in but still look good. Any suggestions on a semi-easy pattern for a beanie I can try??

September socks.

I finished the September edition of the 12 months/12 socks KAL yesterday evening. They are superb! The "Alegria" yarn from Manos del Uruguay is marvelous and very delightful to work with, having excellent stitch definition and very uniform color and thickness consistency. I highly recommend it.
I hope to add photos at a later time...if the dratted system ever lets me. Otherwise, you can see them on my Ravelry projects page.
