I have been woking on these for about a week now and am a third through the second one. The pattern is out of a Dale of Norway Book and I am knitting them in alpaca.

So when I was leaving DC all the boys here were knitting Moebius scarves and I was quite disturbed by the strange twisted knitting going on. Here in Minnesotta though I was bored enough to figure it out and have made a narrow moebius scarf; too narrow in fact. I may have to do the dreaded crocheted add on thing but at leeast the texture will be interesting. I need to work on my Fair Isle mittens today though.

So I am making my first foray into lace and I am at a loss. How do I not do a stitch and carry the yarn with me in the squares that are marked as black boxes?

I am thinking about going to the dark side and learning how to spin. Any input and/or advice you might have would be most appreciated.

So this sock has been in the works for well over a month now on #2's because I just can't seem to finish it. In fact I have started a new pair of socks to protest the fact that I can't seem to work up the energy to finish this one. What's worse it is only the first one! The colors are lovely though and I find the yarn doesn't slip off my Brittany's easily.

So after my partner and I moved to the land of Germans that is Saint Cloud Minnesotta I thought I ought to start a men's knitting group. I had been going to Men Knit DC while we lived there ( www.menknit.net ) and thought it would be a good thing to do. So tuesday is our second meeting and we expect maybe seven people but it is really hard to get straight men. Not that I mind gay men mind you but I really didn't intend for this to be a gay knitting group just a men's knitting group. Oh well I am sure the straight guys will appear eventually.
