Some Powerful Thoughts About Men

After a careful read and a long think-through

(I know, rather inelegant an introduction and screams for a pithy word to encapsulate, but I move on...), I believe: any man should benefit from this thought provoking article; any parent should consider this carefully; any man who has felt marginalized because of who they are, take a read.

Some Powerful Thoughts About....Men

Magic Loop Socks

Good Morning All,

Well I choose something new for a quick project. I have knitted a lot of socks using double pointed needles and chose to make this pair using the magic loop method. Think I like it. What is your preference when knitting socks?

Regards & Thanks,

Some new pics of yesterday's accomplishments. I think I like the new method.

Hounds Tooth for a Hound

One of our dogs is always cold. She sleeps under the blankets and as close to the fire as possible without going up in flames. I decided to quick-knit this coat for her. I was amazed at the hounds tooth pattern I was able to knit. She is loving this garment and she doesn't try to get it off. I want to make her another but next time a pull-on jumper instead of a coat with buttons. Does anyone have some links to dog patterns to suggest? I thought I'd get recommendations first before just wading into the internet.

Wrist Warmers

I bought Arne and Carlos's new book "Norwegian Knits with a Twist" and really liked the wrist warmers. The pattern called for a dk weight which I couldn't find but did find some suitable Jamieson Smith Shetland in 4 ply jumper weight. I had to swatch and do a bit of math to achieve the correct size. They were a fun knit.
