Knitting things I love. . .
I recently was browsing lists of things that knitting people love. I wondered if you have anything that screams knitting that you forward or pass on to people who knit. . .

If you haven't seen this yet, it's hysterical. . .all about knitting, sort of I've been showing it to all of my friends who want to learn how to knit HA!

I also love circular needles, and have recently fallen in love with the soft cords on Kollage square needles. Have to tried them? Yeah. Love it.

I love knitted sweaters and was FINALLY brave enough to make one for me. Not only does it fit , I ended up entering it into a contest on Ravelry. (and yes, I would you if you vote by November 15th- mine is the second one down . . .shawl collared jacket )

I also love wool yarn, or blends that have good stitch definition.

I love handspun yarns.

I actually love learning new knitting things. And pretty much live on knittinghelp.com when I do. . .

So what about you? Anything you love that I need to try out? I'm trying to broaden my horizons!

...yarn can't feel pain...
Love it! Typical guy thing, make it harder than it really is. LOL OK, not all guys do, and I'm really good at making things harder than they really are.

I've made 3 sweaters, 2 hooded cardigans for GKs and a shawl collar pullover for moi which is really warm and comfy, I hate taking it off, I'm wearing it now and the thermostat is turned down so I'm glad it's really warm. I've made leg warmers on circs and flat then seamed, circs win that one. I love learning new things too, I'm going to try the surprisingly stretchy cast on and bind off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abBhe-JYmgI I finally did the cable cast on; for some reason it was horribly hard for me to get. Knitting mitts was fun to learn, I've done 2 pair now.

Oh, if you use short rows, you might like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KooKdm0YBbw It was posted in another thread on anothe of the forums here, I used German short row shaping on my sweater front.
