I'm making my first pair of socks- and my first foray into double pointed needles. Wow, are those things aggravating. But I finished one sock and now I'm just hoping the other one matches. Any tips on those tips would be greatly appreciated.

Esme, your bags are totally inspiring. How long does it take you to finish one of those?

I just made this triangular scarf, the pattern is Boneyard Shawl, from Ravelry.

Image

I need to take some better pics. And seriously need to update my ravelry page.

The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy - it's hemp, cotton and modal. I really love the yarn, it's kind of crinkly feeling f but still soft, and it's a nice warm thing to have around my neck but still breathable and all that.

Kala, love those socks!

I've just finished a shawl using Blue Moon Fiber Arts' Sock Candy yarn.

Ooh pretty! I've got a couple of skeins of Hempathy but not sure what to do with them.

Just bought a stupidly large amount of wool.
And discovered a great wool shop in my city which I never knew about before.
I'm pretty chuffed.

My last two projects aren't vegan (despite my username) but I'll post what I've done once I charge my camera and take pics.

Ok, so I am determined to knit Christmas presents this year. Granted, I say that every year. But I'm really gonna do it this year. Really really. I have a lot of crummy acrylic stash yarn, but will probably buy a few skeins of nicer cotton/bamboo/hemp yarn for this purpose. Browsing patterns now . . . I could do this for hours!

are you using "wool" as a general term for yarn including vegan yarn? or are you talking wool fiber yarn?

I would appreciate it if we kept knitting talk vegan, the same as how we keep food porn on this board 100% vegan. Though I don't care if that's just what you call yarn, I know that in Europe traditionally yarn shops are often just referred to as wool shops, etc.

I haven't had the time to handknit in weeks, which is funny because I'm majoring in knitwear design.

I got halfway through the back of my Who Me? cardigan (http://www.knitscene.com/issue/fall-201 ... rdigan.asp) and haven't touched it in foreverrrrrrr. It's making me sad. It wants to be finished.

I'm sure she is. My Australian friend, who has lived here for almost 10 years, still calls it that from time to time.

I won't post my non-vegan projects, but they are made of recycled wool. I'm not buying new animal products.

yeahhhh the yarn company I worked at had me researching european yarn shops for awhile. I was always so confused by the terminology. Especially when it was in German.

I usually use cotton yarn, cotton/synthetic blend, synthetic, or yarn that is recycled from plastic bottles (which is really awesome!). For the record, all the stuff I post will be made from one of those yarn types. All vegan.

A lot of well-meaning people who know I knit or crochet will give me old yarn, and sometimes it's real wool.

Stoked to find a LYS here in Perth selling vegan sock yarn (Wendy Happy). Managed to restrict myself to just two skeins, Aries and Capricorn.

such a gorgeous coat!!! you are really talented <3

I tried to crochet a snood last night but managed to twist the foundation chain. ugh. the yarn is beautiful though- it's a chunky acrylic that's a lot like Rowan big wool in a berry pink colour.

Awesome coat! Love the lining.

The Bubble Bobble hat I'm making for my BF is taking forever. I do hope it will look good when it's done.

it's really soft and lovely! I have tried so many times to knit socks with it but I am the world's slowest knitter and I keep doing it wrong. If you can't get it in the States it's pretty easy to get here, I'd be happy to send it over.
