This is described as a wind-cheater in the 1960's pattern book. It basically the neck part of a sweater to be worn under someting else. Clever, eh?

This is a traditional English Guernsey, knitting in traditional 5-ply wool. They are knitted on very small needles and produce a water and wind-proof fabric. The patterns differ from village to village and family to family. Only the top of the sweaters carry a pattern as the rest in hidden by dungarees. The arms are usually short so as not to get waterlogged and cause chaffing. Traditionally the wearers initials are knitted in just about the welt. They are always knitted in the 'round' and the arms knitted from the shoulder down.
Knitted these last year to a 1940's Norwegian Knitting Pattern in English Guernsey 5-ply wool. Very warm indeed!
These are a pair of socks knitted in German Regia Wool. Print-dyed, it easily knits to a pattern as if by magic!

Are any of you members of the TKGA? (The Knitting Guild Assocation; http://www.tkga.com) I've considered membership off and on for a few years now but I've never done it. I have and am still considering doing their master knitter certification program. What are your thoughts on this? IMHO, the TKGA is decidedly woman centered, but I guess I should tell us all something we wouldn't already know.
Ok so its my first time and somethings are good tight- but not when you cast on!! arrrgghhhh!!!
