I've always been intrigued by, but never tried Fair Isle Knitting. That is until I saw this picture at men.style.com.

Well I know the Hemlock Ring Blanket isn't new to this group - but it was a really easy and fun knit.

Well this one flew off the needles - a quick and easy to memorize pattern from Knitty.com. The pattern is called Lace Ribbon Scarf - and I did not repeat the pattern rows as called for.

Here is a scarf I just taught a class in making. It is from the Victorian Lace Today book (I've downsized it for my petite wife who did not want a wide scarf).

I just knit this shawl for a petite (probably all of 90 lb) friend of mine. I had to make significant pattern changes (lots fewer repeats) to make it an appropriate size.

Well...I'm beginning to think about Christmas gifts to the people I don't want to spend much on (either time or money)...so how about a bookmark?

Okay - so I'm a shawl knitting freak. Just thought I'd post a pic of the latest one. Super easy pattern - looks great but don't recommend the yarn - it bleeds like crazy!

Well, a friend saw my wife's fichu and decided she wanted a lacier-blingier version. She's a public speaker and wanted something that would sparkle under the lights.
