Hi guys. I finished the socks that are made using the Evil Genius Sock method found at http://www.yarmando.com/. Thanks again, Ken in Maine for sharing that site with me.

Hi gents! I just finished up a little something for myself. I made the Antler Hat by 'tincanknits'. The pattern is free on Ravelry. It features five vertical cabled 'antlers' that go from the end of the ribbing up to the tip of the hat. The only mod I made to the pattern was taking out one repeat of the Antler Cable chart. It seemed like the hat was getting a bit long/tall, so instead of doing nine, I did eight.

I try to teach myself a few new stitches here and there, and then turn the stitch into a prayer shawl. I just finished a tile stitch prayer shawl that had great texture and drape. If any of you are part of this ministry within your faith, you can find my pattern on Ravelry under my name It's a free download.
Happy New Year

Since I liked Anne's last pattern so much I decided to start a sock pattern by her. I began them last Thursday evening. Here is a current picture of my progress. Thinking about doing a bright orange toe. What do you think? Hope you're all having a great weekend. Weather in STL has been spectacular for the middle of winter. The last two days sunny and over 50 degrees. Keep the needles going, JRob.

So you ask what do you love - it is a classic. Anne’s pattern is extremely well written, easy to follow and a breeze to knit. Almost any fibre can be used and it would be wonderful. Everything we love in a project. The design is not overly complicated and knits up beautifully. Besides it just looks great. It is one of those patterns and designs that I envision knitting again and again. Everyone who saw it today loved it and those with balls asked if I could knit one for them. The repetitive repeat is pleasing to the eye at just the right length and width to me almost magical.

I screwed up when posting my fair isle sweater and neglected to add these photos....a close up of the pattern and the book used for inspiration.

Happy new year from the UK.
We went shopping with some friends of ours before Christmas and came across a rather fetching waistcoat/tunic affair in a very nice shop. It was knitted in 1x1 rib and straight... By which I mean no hem.

The motifs for this classic fair isle pullover came from the wonderful directory by Mary Jane Mucklestone. The wool is Knit Picks "Palette" fingering and the main color is navy (that appears very black in the photos.) Knit in the traditional method of two colors per round, with armholes and neckline cut in.
