Just wanted to introduce myself and show some completed projects. I mainly knit prayer shawls for a group at church, but my Partner has me knitting scarves for his nieces and the occasional hat for himself. :) The Entrelac shawl was one of a pair that I knitted for some friends who are adopting two little girls from China, I also knitted matching teddy bears to go with them.

It has been a while since I posted any completed projects.
My "birthday cardigan" is n hiatus, that whole gauge thing got me. Amazing how quickly a quarter stitch adds up. Well I always learned best first hand.
My needles have not been idle. All the lacework shared here has impressed and inspired me. Here are a couple of my experiments.
The nightlight shield was my first attempt. Knit flat then "lashed" (whip stitched?) to the frame.
The lampshade was knit in-the-round, top-down. I used the same method of attachment.

I am looking forward to visiting the STITCHES Midwest Knitting conference. Anyone else in my neck of the woods going? I am happily only about 5 miles away. I think the prices of the lessons are way too steep, but I still want to go to perhaps pick up some yarn or other things that may catch my eye.

Quite some time ago I posted about how I had gotten interested in spinning fiber on a drop spindle. Since then I have acquired a few spindles, mostly Turkish, and have gotten in a fair amount of practice.

I had to do the neck to finish this and accomplished that this morning. Little Ben will be two in January. I used a pattern that I made up myself that is roughly based on EZ's percentage system. DK acrylic (that I bought here in Mexico) and 4mm needles.

Just finished up three pairs of socks that I will give to my brother and sisters for their birthdays. I lost the label for the sock on the left, the middle one is Opal, and the one on the right is Zauberball. I used my mother's recipe with 2.25mm needles.

As many of you know, I writing a knitting blog for the site StitchandUnwind.com. They asked me to write an article about the Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat. It went live today, so I thought I would share it with you. Thanks to all who helped me with photos.
