Where Art Thou, Brother?

Has anyone heard from Jason1978 lately?

Lock Nest Hat

My knitting buddy, Beth, found this fun and funky pattern for the Lock Nest Hat by designer Teri Barr in Interweave Felt magazine (Special Issue 2007) and has already knit up two for herself.

Andy's Cashmere House Socks

My Most Beloved puts up with a lot when it comes to my knitting and fiber addiction. I am so lucky to have such a loving and supportive partner. He has long had one request... Cashmere Socks!

Baby Uggs Booties

I finished the Baby Uggs Booties that I have been working on. There are a quick knit, really, but I did the Second Sock using the wrong size needles so it became the first sock of the second set!

My sister's husband is a semi-professional photographer and took some shots of my sister wearing the shawl I made for her!

Makes me so proud!!
