The knitting club"Busy hands" that I go to on a thursday afternoon want us to knit small toys for their Christmas fair, I am not into knitiing small items , my hands are too big but if you have any ideas or free patterns I would love to hear from you , thanks a million


Good morning everyone!

Val, check out this page of free toy patterns by Jean Greenhowe. Scroll down and see the Squidgy Beanbugs pattern... small beanbag creatures. Also, her Rainbow Babies, last on the page, are simple little dolls you can "dress" by knitting in different colors.

I have picked up the Seascape Stole again, a previously abandoned project. I'm done with everything else so I've resumed this project. I don't normally like mohair, but this yarn (part mohair) feels so nice. It will be warm. I showed it to you when I started it, eons ago, but will show my progress again later when I get a little more knit.

I also need to fix something on my elephant and then I'll show him to you all, too.

Have a wonderful day!

Oh, Donna, lovely yarn. I think you will enjoy knitting that sweater. Finished all my homework for my second sock class( toe up) on Monday, and made a small pasta salad and then put an apple crumble with blueberries in the oven. Will work on grands sock tomorrow. Check in later chicks. :-D

hi ladies!

hope you are all well!

i am introducing myself into glass etching today....by turning my more interesting jars and bottles into canisters, lol....i have to admit..i am struggling with getting my work even across...but at least my pantry will be organized when i am done!

so i have a knitting question for you...i stumbled upon a sale this week...some very pretty jeweled pins at stienmart..BUT

I am afraid to use them as shawl pins on my handknitted lace...i worry that i will snag and ruin all my hard work...am i being rediculous? what do you think? the pins are all shaped like hummingbirds, stemmed flowers etc...so many sharp edges...I will be back by tomorrow so i didnt buy any yet...

Good morning Friends! I slept in I stayed up way to late last night but once I started the shawl I didn't want to put it down I love seeing the pattern come to life.
Hope your Hubby's are on the mend Barb and Val. Donna the alpaca Farm sound fun your hubby's jumper will keep you busy.
Osg I think anything can make a lovely shawl pin it should be ok in lace as long as doesn't have too many bits to snag the lace and depending on how fine and light the lace is if the pin is too heavy it won't sit nice.

Hello CWS. I got a lot done today. All the laundry except a load of towels is done. that includes stripping the beds.

Mike is doing much better, thank you everyone.

OSG, I think almost anything can be a shawl pin. Just be careful when you put it on so you place it in a spot it won't snag.

Yes, it has a really nice drape to it and a bit of a glossy finish It doesn't bounce back like wool,but isn't as heavy as cotton.

Thanks The colours in the yarn came out more stripy than I thought it would, I would have prefered something more like the teal yarn I am using at the moment but it has grown on me and looks much better blocked than it did as you see the stitches.
