A Friend in Need... Originally from JMF

So, a few days ago Shepherd Susie from Juniper Moon Farms posted about this terrible barn fire that happened to a friend of hers that owns a vegetable co-op.  She was posting to try and connect those of us in the knitting, crafting community to help out.  If you haven't heard, the blog post is here:

Tutorial: Fisherman's Rib

Fisherman's Cowl from the Quick Gifts Series

I just wanted to add a video tutorial that helps those knitters who want to make the Fisherman's Cowl but are more comfortable with video tutorials...

Here is a video tutorial that shows you how to work the fisherman's rib after you have casted on the appropriate stitches...

Quick Gifts 4: Fisherman's Cowl

I just put out a new "quick gifts" series pattern and it's available via this link on Ravelry for free until the end of February 2011.  So enjoy it while it's still free!

Fisherman's Rib Cowl

It's a very warm and fluffy cowl pattern suitable for bulky yarns and probably takes a few hours to a day to knit.
