Good Morning Guys,
Well the NEw Zealand Possum Shawlette came off the needles this morning. The one skein of Possum I had was not enough to complete the project so I paired it with a cranberry color wool from my stash to complete the boarder. It is Lanaloft 100% wool from the Brown Sheep Company. Now all I need to do is block it this afternoon. I post a complete picture when she dries.

Good Evening Guys,
Well the Noro Sweater I've made for myself is all seamed together and I only have to sew in the zipper tomorrow so I should be getting a photo of the finished product on the blog tomorrow. I am really please with the way it turned out.

Good Evening All,
Well the back for Jane Ellison's pattern Joben came off the needles just before supper. Thought you'd enjoy seeing the progress. It measures 22" wide X 27-1/2" long. Now I've got a major decision to make. Do I do it as a pull over as she designed it or put a zipper down the front as I have been contemplating. I think I'll sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.

Good Evening All,
Here is a picture of the first leg of a pair of ribbed boxers that I am designing. I let you know how the they progress. As you can see from the photo the fiber is Wisdom Yarn's Poems Socks which is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. Needle size being used is 3.00 mm.
Regards to all,

We've had our first heavy frost this week in St. Louis (but today is forecast to be 70). Almost finished my grandson's last sweater for the season and was thinking what to do next and thought I'd do my first cock sock/willie warmer. Anyone know of a good pattern and want to join me in knitting one up? I thought us guys could have some fun with a short project together.
