Baby blanket I made for my sister and her partner for the little bundle of joy they are expecting next month. I used Mission Falls 1824 superwash and size 8 needles. The pattern is called "Tilting Ladder Pattern" and I found it in Barbara Walker's "Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns." Don't you love Barbara's books? I have worn out my copy of "Treasury of Knitting Patterns." The pages are coming out and the binding is broken but it's still the first place I go when looking for something new to do.
This scarf is make out og some yarn call " Shake yarn" and when it knittet in "rib" its is magic in that way that you can use it as a scarf a stola almost anything .

This sweater I did a time ago but its very nice and took a bit of time because of the pattern
Do you knit for the current season or for the season ahead?
Here is an hilarious site about vintage knitting designs. I laughed out loud!
Years ago when I was first learning to knit, I had a couple of friends who knew how and I was discussing my progress with them. Over the course of the conversation, one of them happened to say, "Oh yes, and knitting is great because you can do so many other things while you're knitting." To myself, I thought, "Uh, OK. Whatever you say." But, I had to resist my desperate urge to wholeheartedly disagree. Surely I listen to music or the radio or I listen to what's on TV with only the occasionaly quick glance up, but to what the hell else could she have possibly been referring? Reading? Sex? At this point, I guess I'll never know.
this I made in the summer time for another friend of mine - for her Birthday - she was very happy for it. I found it on the net at http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/doilies/doily.htm
large work but nice when done
Jacket for woman at work
A slow period at work gave me a chance to finish up the love blanket square. It turned out almost exactly the correct size, so blocking it should be a cinch. I should be able to get it washed, blocked and off in the mail Monday. I was also able to knit up a swatch of the new Silky Tweed yarn. I've attached photos of both.
After work, I'm planning on driving 3 1/2 hours to my grandmother's for her birthday. I'm thinking it won't be that fun a drive on little or no sleep, but it's my favorite place in the world. How could you not love a place that looks like this? Aside from that, there's a really nice little LYS on the way that I haven't visited since the summer. I only want to touch the yarn...no, really. :-)
