Beginner's Knitting Course 2.0 now online

The new and improved Beginner's Knitting Course is now online! Thanks to so many of you for the input and suggestions on the first incarnation. I have incorporated as many of them as I could. I hope the result is pleasing, and a fitting tribute to the beginnings of our small knitting "tribe." Not perfect yet, but that suits me fine.

Recent knitting

Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.

The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.

irregular rib raglan with toggle - Teva Durham

Good Evening All, Several years ago I picked up a copy of Loop-d-Loop , more than 40 novel designs by Teva Durham because I was drawn to this particular raglan. It is an interesting design knitted in the round with an irregular rib with asymmetrical arm holes. The right is shaped to accommodate a simple drop shoulder sleeve, while the left side has a raglan placket to match a raglan sleeve. the right side has a shoulder seam, whereas the left side, the back and front and sleeve end up on the collar. Here is a photo grab from ravelry of one i particularly like.
