Its all your fault!! :) I drove 100 miles and spent over $90!!!! (not too awful, $1/mile) I bought mostly baby blanket yarn, plus enough for a sweater for a Christmas present. Good price on good yarn. Can't wait to get started on that, but i have a "request" afghan to finish first. I would say it was a very good day! And, Herschnerrs is in Steven's point.

Our family has also gone thru an entirely different type of tragedy. It is humbling to be on the receiving end of gifts, prayers and goodness. God is still good, the sun still rises and life goes on. Blessings as you settle in to a new normal and praying that as you look back you see you have grown stronger. May God bless you and your hubby as you settle in to your new normal. Nice craft room!!!!

I've made some log cabin baby blankets, but never anything quite like this. I love the white border and will need to remember that.

I have wondered the same thing, aside from those worn as accessories to an outfit, i seldom see knit shawls out there being worn, but i find them beautiful. I made myself one a few years back and it sits proudly on the shelf in the closet waiting for me to wear it!

I just finished a bright green and bright yellow baby blanket. I made 25 squares that i sewed together, knitting them C2C. I usually crochet around the outside to sort of "finish it". I think your red and yellow would make a great blanket, -----new Mom's are not very interested in pastels anymore. Another suggestion if you continue to feel hesitant ---- add some grey-----grey seems to be a very well received color today.

I heard there is a new shop in Mayville, although i have not been there, but have heard it was good. I do not know its name, its on their main street. There is also a yarn store in Beaver Dam called the firefly, its nice, and on Front Street, (BD's main street.)

yes, ripping is part of knitting. If you enjoy knitting----rip it out, it won't frustrate you too much if you truly enjoy knitting. BUT, i agree, this is a big project, knit some washcloths to use as gifts, maybe even a few hand towels to match. Do them in the stitch you mentioned as practice and then after you are more experienced tackle that blanket. I have knit for 50+ years and i regularly rip and knit, who cares? If i wasn't knit this for the second time i would be knitting something else anyway! Good luck!

Get Ann Budd's "Knitters book of handy sweater patterns." It is my "Bible" for knitting sweaters. (she has a top down book similar to it). So, if the sweater she loves has a "pattern" in it, you should be able to fit the "pattern" onto a sweater pattern and make her another sweater she will "love". I use this book to make nearly every sweater I make, it will help you become your own "sweater designer". ENJOY!

Two strands of super saver! I have done many like that, makes a heavy, warm afghan. (many of my nephews and nieces got one as a shower gift.) I usually pick up enough yarn to make the entire afghan with one VARIEGATED skein of yarn. Then i pick colors that match or are in that variegated skein. I try keep one of the two yarns a constant color, then i change the other color VERY randomly-----sometime i make 10-16 rows of one color, sometime do only 1 1/2 rows of a color. I have used as many as eight colors of other yarn and as few as 2 or 3. I have one of these i made myself and I don't share it!!!! I knit this all in garter stitch My favorite? --a black/white/grey constant color with black/white/grey and a red accent color. LOVED that one!

Don't frog it all. I LOVE it, but maybe if you used some of the red from flowers above the sheep section you would be happier than with the pink, but i see nothing wrong with the pink at all. As for the sheep, i think once you block it, it may be ok. I've knit for 50+ years and i am not certain i would try that. Bravo, you are doing just fine!

Please PM me with a link about this weekend. I am a Wisconsonite who lives about 50 miles away from the Alliant center. BUT, we snowbird and will not return to our beautiful state until April. Is this a yearly event, always the same weekend??? (we did miss a brutal Wisconsin winter this year!) Anyway, enjoy the weekend, I am jealous!!!

First, i offer you my sympathy, and prayers for your healing and peace. I too have grieved unexpectedly for a teenage daughter who passed due to an accident. For at least a month i would forget what i was talking about mid sentence, my attention span was extremely short, and I told people i would do things and had no recollection of saying this. These are all common reactions to grief. My suggestion---do something very easy, something easily picked up and put down, (you will be busy for awhile, and have unexpected guests). AND, above all---grieve as you NEED to. Don't let others tell you how/when you should feel better. Eventually you will, but the road has many ups and downs, so be kind to yourself. God is still good. Blessings to you.

I tried knit a bedspread using fabric yarn, I bought yards and yards of 100% cotton and cut it into about 1 1/4 strips and joined them and knit. It made a very heavy fabric, nothing i would care to wear. It really frayed badly and after knitting maybe 10 inches i knew it would not work and the rest of the fabric began to become a quilt, one i never finished. ( I really dislike sewing!) Good luck, but i think if i tried again i would sew the fabric into "tubes", or possibly zigzag over all the edges. (and remember, I dislike sewing,---so i doubt i will ever do it!)
