Test knit : The Varling sweater 2018/226
This is a lovely knit bottom up, body in one piece. For the life of me I could not get the pattern stitch to work out for the shoulders while doing GSR so i opted to do the rib which is also at the bottom of the sweater. Now off to wash and block. I thought it came out nice...
Pattern release date is 15/01/2019
Pictures from my Craft Room
My daughter was a in a Jeweller's shop and they were changing the posters and stand up cards to the next season and noticed that they had packed it to be discarded. She asked them if they would consider giving it to me ( her Mother) who would appreciate it and use it to up cycle them with her craft group. The Lady was happy to give them to her for me and I was the lucky recipient . I have a cardboard cutter and made these gift cards . I use my punches and punched some flowers and items I have collected and with some shiny diamente and here are the results

19-12-2018 LK150 Clean Up
I gave my second LK150 a quick clean up yesterday since it has been in use for most of the time since I bought it in August 2016.
All the needles were removed as well as the sponge bar and the needle slots cleaned as best as one can. Sponge bar is still good
The amount of cumulated rubbish under the knitter was surprising since the LK150 sits flat where ever it is mounted; see images.
Main reason for the clean up was that I had a hand full of needles in the bed centre not knitting sometimes when using an e-wrap cast on. Not enough rows to get the cast on comb into the fabric to get the weights on. Hopefully and touching wood (my head) that the issue is fixed.
Errata - Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible
I am trying to knit the 3rd Lacy Patterns Chart, but there appears to be an error. Does anyone know where I can find a listing of errata for this book please. I have not been successful in my searches to date.
ChiaoGoo Mini and Shorts small twist & Spin(]
I don't see any twist and spin in these they are just ordinary metal cables that are plastic coated...can someone with one of these sets explain the twist and spin part? After the first of the year I will get another set of each I like to knit in the round on 2 circular needles but I expected cables that would spin around and they just don't so I don't understand what I am missing
Home-Made Labels for Nursing Home shawl?
Hi, I'm making a shawl for my mother who is in a Nursing Home. I want to make a label to sew onto it to identify her. I was thinking of tearing up a bed sheet and writing on it and sewing it to the shawl, but thought that might look kind of tacky and wouldn't wash well (fade).
And time is of the essence..I have 4 days to come up with an idea without ordering pre-made ones.
Do any of you have any ideas that I can use for this? I don't mind the sewing - that would just take minutes. I'm concerned about the label and what would be good ideas for what fabric to use and what is the most indelible kind of pen to use for it.
Thanks for any ideas!

I will donate to charity
Hi , I made this baby blanket for charity but I ran into several problems along the way. I ran out of pink yarn before I was finished. Thought I had 2 more balls of pink but they were peach. Instead of starting over, I added a striped top and matching bottom to the blanket. I think it turned out o.k.
