11/14 good morning
I had a great weekend knitting and am almost done with the front of the sweatshirt!! I have about 5 rows on the upper right shoulder and I can bind off and start the back.
it's pretty gray this morn, maybe we'll get some needed rain.
how's everyone?? :D

Heah Tigger.. Good Morning

Glad to see you had a good weekend..
This weekend I picked up "The Knitters Bible" and I'm really enjoying that book.. it has a good section on Fair Isle and Intarsia (my next foray) and some stich patterns .. and a big section on doing sweaters..

My dad used to love to make sweaters and afghans.. that's all he did.. he's thinking about getting back into knitting since he's retired now.. We'll see

Anyway.. Once I get this blanket done, I may start some intarsia..

That would be awesome if your dad got back into knitting! I can just picture the two of you hanging out, afghans in lap, knitting along. I keep telling my husband he should let me teach him, but he always looks at me like I'm nuts. I just think it would be cool to have someone that close to share it with.

Yeah you know most guys.. :rollseyes: anyway.. I hope to do an afghan with him at least once.. he's up there in age.. and not in the best of health.. so I hope.. he helped me a bit with tension.. but he said to my just this saturday

"My tension has always been tight.. that's why I don't do many clothes"

Cause my tension is hellishly tight on somethings.. but I've getting better

NORMAN, I've been trying to get my hands on that book and it's very elusive here!
I'll end up ordering from BAM online.
tell me what you think about it??
I ended up getting the Encylopedia of Knitting by Donna Kooler and i've enjoyed it so far. Haven't had time to really read it, as I've been knitting in a frenzy. My hands are sore I did so much knitting over the weekend, but I"M NOT COMPLAINING!!!!

Kemp, I will post a pic when I get my dh's sweatshirt done. He's quite pleased with the result so far.
Said he didn't know I could knit a sweater and I said well this is my first and he said, okay, I'll stand crooked (and put one arm lower than the other) if I have to. ROFL

I really enjoy the bible.. I think it was 22$ around here.. so if you want I could pick it up and you could paypal me the money if it's cheaper than getting it online

Anyway.. I enjoyed it.. sometimes those diagrams they show confuse me.. but they are pretty large diagrams.. I can scan in a couple pages (actually take pictures as I don't want to ruin the spine <-- Book nerd)
to show you what I mean..

My mom got me this small hard cover book in Tennesse that has just like hundreds of different stiches.. so the stich library part of it was redundant.. but the rest is great

What a sweetie pie! I just finished a sweater for my DH this weekend too. I need to get him to model it tonight so I can take a picture.

oh do take pic, I'd love to see the sweater.
okay, I'm a cheapie, my BAM STORE had the knitter's bible (only one) for 22 but I wouldn't buy cause I could buy online from BAM for 15. I kept thinking of the yarn I could buy with the difference in price. LOL.
I enquired of the clerk as to the price diff and she said they are basically two seperate providers. Buying online comes DIRECTLY from the warehouse, whereas BAM stores buy from the warehouse and then prices it in the store.
