My updated Willie Warmer pattern is now online. (Shameless self-promotion.)

Well, if you don't toot your own horn from time to time, there may not be any music at all. So there. ;-)

I first published this pattern to the GLBT knit-list (http://www.glbt-knit.com/ ) in late 2002. After unexpectedly coming across a hard copy of the post, I went over the pattern and decided it had to be redone.

Mary Maxim: Angler's Pride.

All I have to do is whip in a zip, zip, zip and my new/retro jacket/cardigan is complete. I'm hoping to find someone more skilled than I in hand-sewing to put it in for me-- I've never done a zipper. But I might just give it a shot if I can't find someone or the price isn't right.

Sharing a washcloth pattern I wrote.

Here's a link to a seamless, circular washcloth I posted at Ravelry in 2010. I wrote this pattern to get rid of the usual sewn seam. The grafted "seam" creates a piece of knitting with no apparent beginning or end.

It takes less than 3 hours to complete and the Hexagonal version can be used in a pieced afghan when worked in worsted weight yarn.

Vintage men's knitted swimwear.

The boxers KAL had me thinking of vintage swimwear finely knitted in wool...

Top-down version of John Anderson's Kilt Hose.

I just added the top-down version of my kilt hose pattern at knitting-and.com. There's a link on Ravelry, too.
