D-Day 75th Anniversary, my poppy jumper
Drop shoulder short sleeved jumper with poppy motives. And another waterfall cardigan. Will wear this on the 6th June in Normandy, France. If the weather is as bad as it was 75 years ago, I will need to wear it.
I love handmade things. I knit and crochet different items - scarves, shawls, gloves, hats, appliques ...
I hope I can find here more interesting handmade projects :)
Does this have value?
I originally thought I could accumulate all I needed to knit 50 Izzy dolls to donate to my church in time for Christmas and set August 2018 as my deadline date; however, due to my inability to find suitable yarns that represent our many (flesh) shades of humanity, I had to reset my date to August 2019.
Pictures of the pretty little packs of really small skeins I see when I visit Michael's keep floating around in my imagination and prompt this question: Do you think a yarn company would be interested in having it pointed out that a pack of yarns representative of different shades of human flesh likely would be of great interest to crafters who knit and crochet dolls?
I think it would be a wonderful convenience to drive to a yarn store knowing they stock what I really need to branch out into another phase of our craft and I'd like packs that hold a half dozen shades of browns in addition to at least two flesh shades.

help please! brother kh800 mystery!
I am at the neckline forming stage of a sweater pattern from the Brother beginners collection. The instructions State to count 47 needles from the left and move them into A position (so they don't knit)-but they won't move that far b ack with the work still on it. Should I move the work onto a keeper needle, or can I put the needles into hold position with the same outcome as A position? Your advice is appreciated😊

conversion chart question regarding DMC colors to yarn colors
Is there a DMC conversion color chart to yarn colors out there? I don't do crosstitching so I have no clue. Tried the web but all it did was run me around in circles.
Penny and Patch present some challenges
This is Penny and her little brother Patch. The hats are my idea since i couldn't make their hair work out, not for the life of me. I enjoyed them and now I am on to some hats or something of the sort. More toys later on, I'm thinking. Maybe I'll go back to the Cuddlies.
