See pirates, it IS a knitting club!
So, I've been working on a cardigan since Christmas. I'm halfway up the first sleeve and have decided I don't like it. It's a Sirdar Countrystyle 4-ply in a heather colour but I've decided the cardi was looking too granny-ish.
I'm resigned to ripping it back but haven't thought about what I'll make instead.

Sirdar Countrystyle 4-ply
Now that reminds me of my Mum. She always used to use that wool!
OMG! Not only am I turning into my own mother, I'm turning into other peoples' as well
What can I say, there's not a lot of selection at my nearest yarn shop
I've finished my first mitt, and started on the second. They're going to be so cosy.
Also this weekend I'm working on a sweater that's knit in the round from the bottom up. Never done one like that before so something new there. I'm using the countrystyle 4 ply.
That's always been the bit of knitting that I didn't like.
6 rows to go on my second mitt then I start shaping for the thumb gusset...one of my all time favourite words that is, along with flange and placket.

gusset *is* a fabulous word
I don't know whether is sounds sexy or like the innards of a cow..
I suppose it would depend on how you say it.
My latest finished project. Mitts in some gorgeous yarn that Beebs gave me a couple of weeks ago.
Ooh, they're fab, Kwilter.
My stocking has stalled as I've got to the toe bit and think it might be tricky. Maybe tonight.
Glad I practiced as this one (the practice one) is looking a bit rubbish!
Commiserations on the scarf ... but best rip it out now than be left with a finished garment you don't like.
I sewed up jumper no2 when I was away this weekend. Pity thick jumper weather is over ....
TP - it's "slip slip knit" (I think the yanks use it more than we do) and is explained better than I could here
hope that helps
edit - it's also known by the Brits as "knit 2 tog through the back of the loops"
Thanks fraggle. I googled it and found out it was indeed k2togtbl and it is done! It's a US pattern.
My heel is turned, my stitches are picked up and I am decreasing down to 60 stitches again. I may have a whole sock by tomorrow night
