Evan with his Steeler hat.  He loved his hat.

Note the New Glasses.  You might not be able to tell, they are very similar to my old one, but I see so much better.  They were the best Christmas present I could have given to myself.

I finally finished my first sweater.  It is much prettier than the picture shows.  It took me a long 16 months to complete.  But I set the project down for several months at a time when I reach a place in the pattern I did not understand what to do.  I love my first sweater.

This is one of my new projects.  I am knitting the Reversible cable scarf to match my warm winter coat.  I am knitting most of it using the Continental Method.  But cabling is a bit too much for me, so on the cable row I use the English method.

Good Morning all! It has been a while since I've updated my blog so I thought I would just say "Hey!" I've made two Steeler hats. For those familiar with the pattern, I made one small and the other large. The pattern called for size 6 needles. But I found the gauge on a size 9.  I used Cascade 220.
