Hello gents. I am currently finishing up a project which I'll post more about in a few days. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the in-progress item which looks so weird that I had to share it. Any guesses on what it is I'm making?

I did not want to share this just yet, but I am running out of ideas. I am working on a mod/drop sleeve double knit cardigan. The problem is: how to pickup stitches in double knit and maintain the color pattern.
What I would love to do is pickup the stitches on the fly (as each row is worked).
I have tried:

Here is my latest blog article that I wrote for the good folks at Stitch and Unwind. If you get a chance, please check it out. I wrote the article about decreasing using circular needles using this hat because it was requested in the comments to an earlier article.

I'm at present watching "Jane Austen Book Club". Good Movie, but what I'm telling the group for is that Kathy Baker is knitting a few items throughout the whole movie and it just made me smile! There is a bulky yarn with , blue, purple & green that I wish I had. One of the girls is crafting jewelry throughout and is wearing one of the garments that Kathy was working on. I always love to see knitting in movies or reading about it in a novel! :-)

Amid all my family upheaval, I have managed to finish two matching hats from some superwash merino wool that a friend of my gave me. Thanks, Lou! The hank was 280 yards/4oz, 5-6 sts/in on US 4 & 5. They turned out well and will make wonderful Christmas gifts.

My latest shawl was Kieran Foley's Colorwork Crescent shawl. One of the other people knitting it christened one of the intarsia sections in it, "tanglarsia fairends." And I have to admit having never done any intarsia or fair isle I'm not really sure why I attempted this shawl that had sections of intarsia - but the intarsia sections instead of having solid blocks had intarsia knitting in those blocks!!! I think the shawl turned out quite well considering my learning as I went.

I have been rereading Terry Pratchett's Discworld series for a little light
summer reading. If you have never read, or even heard of Discworld... You are
missing out on possibly the best living satire writer since Kurt Vonnegut's
passing. Pratchett is one of the few authors who actually has me laughing out
loud. I am talking an honest laugh, not a chuckle or even a snicker.
