Check out my knitting friends!

Go here for articulate, beautiful Sophie and her projects for an experienced beginner: For Love and Idleness.

Go here for artistic and amazing Loretta and her projects for the mega-advanced knitter: Circle of Yarn.

And, if you're working on the Shamus knit-a-long locally, you might want to connect more globally, and hang out with these knitters in cyberspace: Shamus Knit-a-long.

Knitting in Public

Ok, it's going to be slighlty less public this time. Maybe we need a new name ;)

We will meet at Jo-Anne Naples's new house. I'm not 100% comfortable posting her address on a public blog, so send me e-mail at and I'll forward her address along. Everyone is welcome.

Tuesday, November 22 at 7 pm.

Be there or be square ;)

On the Needles

True confession time....

Here's what's hanging around in my various knitting bags and piles:
  • hoodie for Victoria -not very far along, I'm afraid
  • black fair isle cardigan for me -coming along... I'm ready to start the yoke, I think.
  • Shamus cardigan (for me, again) from knitty -again, not very far along. The bottom panel is done and a bit of the body. That's it.
  • brown lace shawl -changed pattern, started over... big mess ensued. Sigh.

Could that really be it? I thought the list was longer. Of course, the mental queue includes things like felted baskets to hold the magazines in some order, a burly spun hoodie for me, a bunch of baby things. I'd love to try that circular knit shrug that was in Vogue a month or two ago. That list is really, really long.

What's on your needles?

Two-Handed Fair-Isle Technique

Personally, I think the best description of how to do this is in Kari Anderson's Big Sven pattern. However, if you have a different learning style, this site might be a good one for you (you'll need a high-speed connection): Two-Handed Fair Isle.

Knitting Goes Feminist

Now, haven't I been saying this all along???? Women's Groups.
