Some old works I've done

I promised I'd display a Kaffe Fassett coat that I knitted a few years ago. This was my introduction to Intarsia work, I never thought that it should be difficult, just a lot of work. This was also my introduction to Kaffe Fassett, I'd never heard of him before. I just knew that I loved the look of his patterns. I only wear this coat when it is really cold. I still need to get the right fabric and line the coat, I am just not sure what colour I will use, yet. I'm also not sure of what fabric to use. Maybe I'll just take the coat into the sewing shop, and ask them.

I won gold!!!

I have here my Gold Medal for the Knitting Olympics. It was interesting sticking to the one project for 16 whole days. I've not done that very often. Now to see if I can keep it up, and get a few of my UFO's out of the land of languishing knit-land.
Now isn't that a good image? I'm so very pleased with myself for having achieved this.

Adding a button

I have no idea ofhow to do this, but will try to add a button to a sock group I'm part of. There are some really great patterns in the group - and all are free.
