Hi,does anyone have a pattern for a childs sweater/cardigan in chenille.age between 2years to 9years.be most grateful.
What I'm working on right now.
Should be done maybe Saturday.
Front, back and sleeves that I am redoing. And unblocked.
My turn to brag. I won a hank of Uneek fingering extreme superwash merino yarn by Urth, 437 yards of yummy! It was first prize on a Knotions.com contest. I got to choose between a red mix & a blue mix. I always gravitate towards blues, so I said I wanted the red, just because it is something different. Both were gorgeous.
And, a couple of weeks ago, I went to a free seminar offered by my local Sew Vac store, where I bought my Babylock sewing machine. It was called From Field to Fabric & given by a Benartex fabric rep. She explained about fabric production & had videos of how batitiks are made in Bali, all done by hand (& NOT by children!) The company is ecologically responsible & the artisans making the cloth are very talented. No wonder batiks are so expensive. Everyone got a goody bag of fabric samples & she had scads of fabric bundle door prizes & I won one of those.
How lucky am I?!
And can’t get DH to walk 8 minutes to Stephen and Penelope’s yarn shop. What to do, what to do? No, not going alone. Leaving tomorrow :+/
Grandson's Graduation Blanket
I finally finished blanket for Grandson #3, who heads off to college on Saturday. I made two back in 2014 and shared them here. I used several of the same motifs on this one, but personalized for him. I'm having dinner with him tonight, so will give it to him then. (He knows I've been working on it.) It is machine knit on my Brother 970, but there is a lot of handwork...duplicate stitch on it. It is fully lined also in knit, as shown on the second picture, but is a lightweight yarn so it isn't heavy, just cozy.
This is definitely me when i go on holiday
saw some of these on the internet and some where funny and very true...
Dinnosaur Knitting Pattern Needed
I wonder if anyone knows where I can find a knitting pattern for a Dinnosaur my 10 yr old grandaughter asked if I can make her one I have started looking on a few sites
but the best ones are usually crochet patterns
Omaha Nebraska knitters please
Recently (within the past month) I shared in a post that I will be in Omaha for the month of September waiting for the birth of my 2 new grandsons, then helping their parents after their arrival. One of you graciously suggested we could meet for coffee and to get acquainted. I would really enjoy that, but unfortunately, I didn't respond right away and now don't remember who made that offer. If you are still interested in meeting, please respond so I can PM you and exchange further info!
