Berry Tychus

Made with leftover yarn. This one WAS five panels, but I also knit it quite tightly. It doesn't roll properly, but it looked nice on mom...

Slytherin Tychus.

Made for a friend to match her satchel (coming soon).

Anyone find that the tychus pattern is fine with only four panels instead of five?

Finished a Fisherman's watchcap today.

It was too small.

Frogged it.

Alright gents, I've hear rumors of knitting men in my area, the west burbs of Chicagoland, so its time to get a group together! Who is out in the west burbs? Who wants to knit?

So my best friend's mom...

Just went through her old stash, looking for "boy colors" for her son-in-knitting-law and a box arrived at my door with about a metric ton of Rowan Chunky Recycled Tweed in it...

Have any of you tried felting with Lion Brand wool?

Ever want to cry?

I have just finished the front of my sweater. The intarsia worked well for having done it for the first time, but I realize now my proportions are horrible off.
