Meet Princess Twilight Sparkle
Have Been Missing for awhile...
But I haven't been Idle, a few more sets and my new granddaughter Ayla June, Born Dec.
This one I finished last night. It tested me out.
It combines the use of cables and stranded work
It is meant to represent the entwining branches of winter trees in the snow at twighlight.
It is called Norrland by Sara Burch
My latest afghan
Pretty happy with this one. 🐢
I just returned from a wonderful trip to Puerto Vallarta. Only problem I had was my addi tips were confiscated at airport leaving PV. Luckily, it was a small project so I could remove tips and tie cables together. When I got home I mentioned that to my yarn shop. Owner said it happens often coming from Mexico and Italy. Other than that trip was wonderful
By way of introducing myself to you, this is a picture of a shrug I just finished. The pattern is Lion Brand Jeans Everyday Shrug, Pattern L7008 (a free pattern). The yarn is Big Twist Value Yarn. The stitch used in the body is the Shell Lace Stitch. Because of the different yarn and the different stitch variations from the pattern, it drapes more and drapes longer than the pattern, but I like that. I just picked up knitting again in 2017 and somehow found this great group of knitters. You all have been such inspiratons to me and I have so enjoyed the many helpful, honest and caring discussions about knitting and about life. Thanks for sharing!
My grandson loves his new blanket
The new Americana yarn from Red Heart
I played around with it for a little bit and found I liked the look of the narrow scarf the best. With a matching headband. I cast on 24 sts on sz 7 needles for both. Just in time to support our teams at the 2018 Winter Olympics .
This won't qualify as an "important" post, but I wanted to share with all of you how happy it makes me feel to see the pictures of your work and share in your struggles--from the earliest efforts of new knitters/crocheters to the intricate designs of the "old-timers." While there are times when I wonder why on earth a particular set of colors was used, or imagine how a project might look using a different type of yarn, I rejoice at the efforts and enthusiasm of all you.
In these sometimes sad times, we need to support each other and encourage these fantastic expressions of love. Thanks to each and every one of you.
