The Hat picture by Mary Fisher
I call it the Aberdeen Hat because the grey reminds me of granite (Aberdeen is the Granite City), the gold is the beautiful beach and the blue/green is the lovely colour of the sea there. Aberdeen is also in Scotland - quite a long way north - and although this hat is triangular it's not unlike...

FO by Georgia[_2_]
Got a wonderful book on Fair Isle knitting from Dover (http://store.doverpublications.com/048643107x.html) (though it does repeat the "200 stitches a minute" story that folks have been unable to verify). Anyway, it inspired me to practice up on 2-handed, 2-stranded, flying purple people-eater...

need input on new needles please! by myswendy
I drove myself crazy trying to find my lovely 10-1/2 wooden DPNs for several days to do some I-cords. I finally got the bright(??) idea of cutting my own out of the right-sized dowel (1/4-inch), which I did. I presume it's pine. Anyway, I got 4 quite decent DPNs from the dowel with nice points. I...

Good Sunday to you by Shillelagh
We have a lovely day here on the prairies, almost too warm if you're working out in it. DH & I had to prop up a row of corn that had blown over in the windstorm the other day. I would have left it, but it was lying over the row of carrots. We've been able to start harvesting some of our...
