Need some tips men – heading to Seattle for work in May (guess who I work for ?) and will have one free weekend downtown. I have been to Seattle before (and love the place) but that was before my knitting addiction took hold – so any good stores that are on the “must check out” list?
Also going to have a long weekend in Chicago (catching up with friends) – any stores there that are a must see too?

OK - so I have missed the start but... Found this great Chilean sock yarn "Araucania". In keeping with everything else I like it is a great shade of grey ;) actually more a kind of faded denim blue.
Not starting tilll I finish the jumper for my man and then another cute apple green one for my niece BUT at least I am starting soon!
Not as confident or creative as others so they will be pretty simple but looking forawrd to startin them!
Have a good weekend boys

Hi Men - just finshed a scarf for a good mate who now lives in Melbourne (colder than Sydney!). I have made this one before and learned that I like a challenge. Doing it the second time became a bit tedious.
Happy with the results though - he gets it tomorrow.
Now the next challenge is underway thanks to all your help (especially Millard!)
This one is my own design (well - borrowning left, right and centre from many patterns to get what I want). Managed to get the provisional cast on right and pick up the stiches for the hem too. Roaring along now.

OK - trying a provisional cast on to make a hem instead of a ribbed band. (using waste yarn method)

Yeay - just finished the Erika Knight Funnel neck sweater.
I really love this New Zealand wool too - it is going to be such a warm jumper.
I was too impatient and haven't blocked it yet.

Gents help please!
I am finally going to design a jumper for my boy (enough practice on me). He hates rib bands so I thought about knitting a hem.
