Just finished a hooded unicorn blanket, sized for 7yrs or under. It is, I think, the last unicorn item for my new Etsy shop section of unicorn items. I haven’t posted them yet, but so far I have made a unicorn hat, unicorn lovey and 2 blankets. Will probably add other items depending on how they sell.

Very nice! I’m working on my first C2C and loving the way it is coming along.

I am hoping in here with a natural idea rather than taking pills. I have had arthritis off and on for over forty years.
What I have discovered over time is that a body with disease is one that has an acidic condition. Foods that promote acidity are processed foods (a.ka. as white, i.e. white bread, regular pasta, etc.). Alcohol also contributes to an acidic condition.

Increased in take of water helps to flush the system, and when my diet has been poor, I reach for the Lakota Remedy based on natural ingredients. <I am not aware of how to make this a hot link, just copy and paste.> This can be strong on sensitive skin and I use hand cream over top of it when my skin is more sensitive. Wash hands thoroughly afterwards and do not put near your eyes as this roll on contains capsicum.

And the next step is to get my body back to a more balanced PH. Lots of fresh food, lots of water.

Once I educated myself on this, I did have to shift my diet, my love of cheese and bread suffered and while I still consume them,I do it in moderation, and ensure I eat more raw foods when I am consuming them. Fibre also helps. While I am not a big fan of exercise, I do know that also helps to move the body into a healthier balance.

IF you google Mercola, arthritis you will get a wealth of holistic thoughts on arthritic relief and some issues of memory loss being associated with OTC medicines.

I also find Alpha Lipoic Acid of amazing help with knee pain, among other things, although it may not work on everyone.

I hope some of this helps.

I agree. Before I put anything in my body every morning, I drink a tall glass of water with lemon juice and a tsp of baking soda in it. It helps keep my body in an alkaline state and eliminates a host of problems that I am prone to including acid reflux and yeast infections.
I also have trigger fingers in both hands and arthritis. My left foot, big toe was unbearable a year podiatrist replaced the big toe joint with a silicone one. It was not a bad surgery and the result is amazing. I am unable to take most meds due to intolerance, allergies or med interaction so I usually take Tylenol for arthritis every evening and it keeps the pain under control. May have to try the CDB oil or Lakota method, sounds interesting.

That is beyond beautiful! You are really talented! This piece belongs in a museum.

Called a “Needle Wrangler” on this site, but probably goes by other names too. Keeps your stitches from sliding off the needles while not in use.

Very cute!

I love the old fashioned hand smocked baby dresses, nothing cuter on a little one. I used to smock dresses for my little girls until they were 5 or 6 yrs old. Good job on your dress! Some little one will look beautiful in it.

I'm amazed that so far, no one has mentioned The Mentalist or Elementary. Both are the best of the best, in my never-ro-be-humble opinion! Elementary is a modern day Sherlock Holmes living in NYC and consulting with the NYPD along with his partner, Dr. Joan Watson. Lots of personal side stories as well as great detective work by Sherlock, with his remarkable memory.

The Mentalist is a former "psychic" charlatan who turns his amazing observational skills to working for the police as a consultant. Both are FIVE STARS in my book.

I like both of these shows....The Mentalist being one of my all time favorites. I was so sad when it went off the air.

Longmire is one of my favorites, he is the sexiest, modern sheriff with an old time flavor. What makes him so sexy is that there is no explicit sex and the show is really not about relationships, it is a crime solving show.

We have watched and love all of these shows mentioned thanks to previous discussions like this. Here is one more outstanding one--Heartland. It is a family show with wonderful horse stories mixed in living in Alberta, Canada going into it's 12th season.

We love this show too.
Another one I don’t see mentioned is When Calls the Heart, I think it is a Hallmark series. Also, Outlanders is excellent.

I’m so sorry for your loss. That is a beautiful picture! It sounds like you packed 5 lifetimes of good living into her shortened life and she was a lucky girl to have such wonderful parents. Bless you all.

Lovely Trip Around the World quilt you have there, and such tiny pieces! Hats off to you, if you made it!

I did not make that quilt, but thanks for the compliment. I love handmade quilts, I found this one at a Thrift Shop years ago for $3. Full size and I love it, all hand stitched.

Looks very nice. Congratulations to the risk takers. These were my concerns when I 1/2 considered buying. If anyone who bought them can answer, it will ease my mind if it comes up again.
1. What types of yarn is it and if you looked at the reviews of the yarn on Raverly would you have bought the yarn non mystery box

2. Seems like a number of you received the same yarn which made me think it was yarn that just didn’t sell. 1/2 look variegated which sometimes looks nice on a ball but tough in a project. Do many of you think it will become stash vs actually using it for something other than charity work?
I am Less than 2 years Knitting so if this truly is a great deal, when it comes around again I wouldn’t want to miss it. But I also can’t afford to waste money if it’s just a sale on stuff not one else wanted. Thanks everyone

1. It is all Lion Brand yarn and you order your weight of choice. I ordered #3 weight. I normally don’t buy yarn online unless I have actually worked with it or seen and felt it in the store, but this came to $1 per skein so I couldn’t resist. It is also yarn that I might have chosen myself. I’m posting pics of the types of yarn it is. It is all good quality yarn and incredibly soft yarn.
2. It may be yarn that didn’t sell, but I think it is more like a discontinued stock, making room for new stock, overstock or simply good PR. I will definitely use it, am already thinking the white speckled will make great socks, baby blanket and hats. The variegated will might be a basket or Afghan or hat, the yellow will come in handy for just about anything, but especially baby items or amigurumi. For me, it was a great deal.
