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.

Panna Frost shawl

This is my first entry on your web page. I have just joined.

This shawl was hand manipulated on my SK 360 knitmaster. It took forever to do, but just wanted to prove to myself that I could do it.

Also glad to have found other male knitters, lol.


Circular needles,

Hi All,,

I have just discovered and tried circular needles, and find the much better than ordinary straight ones,

Does any one have any tips that will help me when using them, (I will not be knitting circular with them)

Does anyone have any experience with "Addi" kniting needles.
