Dennis Millard Fontenot Jr. (TheKnittingMill). 3-28-1974 - 3-15-2018.

I know neither Mill nor I have participated much on the MWK website for a while. It was all we could do to keep up with Ravelry, Facebook and Instagram, but we always knew that this is where our roots were.
Mill passed away Thursday. There is no official cause of death, but unofficially, his body was just worn out. He has been suffering through chronic pain related to Multiple Sclerosis. He had always been very private about his health.

Lopi Sweater finished. Pattern is Jon from Lopi pattern book 30 (i think)

Finished and blocked Lopi sweater, just in time. Flying to Iceland tomorrow for some R&R with friends. This sweater should be WARM, at least warmer than I'll ever need in Central California. It was a fun knit and really my first bit of color work of this size Yarn is the Lett Lopi yarn knitted on size US6 and US7 needles in the round, bottom up to sleeves, then sleeves are knitted and all are attached and yoke is completed.

Gregor Cardigan Sweater by Mathew Gnagy

Finished my sweater. Did a few changes to the original pattern. Pattern and Pattern support were great. Although a simple "just shut up and knit it the way it's written" probably would've sufficed.

Yarn: Green Mountain Spinnery - Wool & Mohair
Needles: Size US6 and US8
Size: XXL

changed buttons to a zipper and moved inceases and decreases in 5 stitches from the edge for fully fashioned shaping.

Thanks Mathew for the help!
