If at first you don't succeed...
Commit to airfare, hotel and summit admission and classes to knit something that you have yet to do successfully! Yeah!! Bring it on!

Here is the Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl that I did for my sister, Cheryl. I had myself a Marathon Knitting Weekend and just finished getting it pinned down to the blocking table.

I found this free pattern on Ravelry... some of the pics of other people's projects were so inspiring. It was actually designed to use up "scrap" yarn from other projects.

Every time I head out of town, I try to hit a LYS that I have never been to.

The pinnacle of the LYS experience for me occurred on Monday at The Fold in Marengo, IL.

Here is a pic of my latest finished object. This is one of the cashmere scarf kits put out by Jade Sapphire Exotic Fibers and is 100% Mongolian Cashmere in the "Five O'Clock Shadow" colorway. My partner, Andy, loves wearing cashmere and has been - patiently - waiting for me to knit him something with it.
Neither he nor I really liked any of the "7 Manly Scarf Patterns" that come with the kit so I let him flip through the Harmony Stitch Guide books and he selected the Zig-Zag Moss Stitch pattern. It's subtle but nicely textured and he is very happy with the results.
