Crochet 2nd Gingham afgan
Just finished with my 2nd gingham afgan. I was making it for myself but decided to give it to someone else. She is such a giving person and helps anyone she can and I feel that she could use a little surprise gift. I used Red Heart Super Saver in two colors of brown and the off white is Caron One Pound. With Red Heart it should last a few years.
Top down shirt
This is my first top down project. I chose this knitting method because I have only 400g of yarn available. If it turns out to be a good fitting for me, I'd like to try the pattern of the long sleeved sweater, I found on Pinterest. Any suggestions to help me do a good job?
My Two ladies needles
I WAS SOOOOOOOO WRONG....I HATE THESE NEEDLES.
Thought I liked them, but no! The unconnected needle is always dropping when turning work, not a huge deal but annoying! And the toggle thingy that you can slide up and down the cable is forever catching the yarn which results in a tangle. And the price bounces around in my head when I am aggravated by these needles. I think $29.95!
Had I only asked for opinions before I bought...could have made my own as suggested. I am gonna write and ask to return.
I just finished this little guy. He is just missing his bagpipes.
Shawl for my 1st grandchild
This is a shawl knitted for my grandchild.
I knitted this shawl in 3 ply wool and have to admit that it's huge, it covers a double bed comfortably Now I know if ever knitting it again I should use the 2 ply wool then it would be a better size.
This is my 1st post and I hope this is how it's meant to be done. Joalan

Question On Raglan Pattern From Knitting Pure & Simple Number 201
I am working on this pattern and I am at the point where I divide for sleeves. The pattern reads thus:
K to first increase marker, remove it (remove all markers now as you come to them), K1. Now, using a blunt darning needle and scrap yarn, slip all the sts between here and the next marker on to the length of yarn to hold for the left sleeve. Cast onto the right tip of the needle 10 sts and join to the back sts. K across the back sts to the next marker K1, slip all the sts between here and the next marker k1, slip all the sts between here and the next marker onto a length of yarn to hold for the right sleeve. Cast on 10 sts as before. K to the end of the row.
Now, I am probably reading this incorrectly, but as I read it, it says cast on to the back stitches on the left side. But when you come to the right sleeve is it telling me to add the stitches to the front? Thank you all in advance for reading this and attempting to help.

Just saw this from ICE yarns and couldn't locate the original topic from a day or so ago. They are offering a cotton blend DK at in 25g skeins.
Crochet blanket with applique (MzBarnz)
When my teacher friend had her first baby 25 years ago, I made a little blanket for her. Then I was transferred to a different school and wasn't around when her second baby was born 2 years later. Well, now that I'm back to working with my friend, that second child has reminded me that she never got a blanket like her sister did, so I thought better late than never. This girl is finishing up her teacher credential specializing in Special Education, so I thought something special was in order. To me, the colors of the blanket suggested an ocean themed applique, but she loves Cinderella, so that was the final decision. I'll be giving it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it.
