Love all the sweaters but the ruffled ones are my favorites. I'm new to knitting but the Sweater Wizard sounds like a great investment for me since I love sweaters. I'll be picking up a copy of the edging book you mentioned, and would love some advice on a good "knitting stitch bible". There are so many out there, I want to be sure I choose a good one that will truly become tattered with use, if you know what I mean.

This is a very good, and not-too-expensive, Knitting Stitch Bible!
I got mine from Amazon!


I particularly wanted to get a hold of THIS stitch that another Ravelery used for her cami/tank! It's called TRIANGLES, and I wanted to embellish a plain tank top!

My thoughts exactly...he's out in his shop as I type building himself a wooden tackle box...don't ask me why...something he saw on Ebay and decided he could make himself. Gotta love him.

Well, it ain't all bad! When he's the age of this ole guy, he'll still be gettin' around!



(the 44 Red Hawk Reuger is in case of bear and cougar attack...not humans)


Ya gotta love a man that keeps busy with "man stuff"!
They're usually out of the house and out of your hair!






And this would be me...knitting away...whilst he cuts, chops and hauls...



We live in the city in the Puget Sound area most of the year.
This is our high mountain retreat! 20 acres at 4300 ft elevation, Nighthawk Summit! DH is building a log house for spring-summertime use!

This is the little bunk house (storage, too) that he built as a preliminary
for the big log house. Just to hone his skills for the "butt-and-pass method" of log house building.

I am so totally impressed already with you and your talents...now a husband that is as talented as well!!! My husband and son are both gifted in so many areas. We; you and I are fortunate...I'll have to be more grateful for my men and thank you for reminding me how nice it is to have them.
