Hello! I am a very inexperienced knitter and a self learner but I am determined! My oldest daughter is due with my first grandchild end of March. I have started a blanket tonight, I’m at the end of the border and I’m stumped bc I feel like I’m missing something. Here are the instructions:
1st row: s1, knit to end
Repeat this row 7 times more
9th row: s1, knit to end

Ok so my question is: is it just me it should this have said “repeat this row 8 more times” why are the instructions written this way? I just don’t want to go any further until I understand this!!

Ahhh...something I can answer!

You will have 8 hatch marks (8 repeats) of knitting with the row 1 instructions.

Then, starting with row 9, you will have a feather and fan combination of at least 4 rows per repeat. Carefully measure the 1-8 rows and write that measurement down. You want a certain length—> subtract what would be the two top/bottom measurements from this.

I will try to talk you through the rest...you have helped me with the posting of this pattern I want to work with.

It looks great. I think tatting will soon be a lost art


Jessica-Jean commented wisely that I should not try to over extend myself getting the shuttle if I already had various tatting needles.

I have all the instructions for shuttle tatting, but like the spinning, no one to offer instructions

Hugs! So hard to lose both so close together. Do you have siblings or other family nearby? I don’t think I’ve heard you mention any.


Aunt and uncle in Kansas. Last of THAT generation left of my dad’s family. This memorial/funeral will be held 10/13/2019...VERY well appropriate prior to Halloween.

Would you believe the weather is now getting comfortable???!

Hi. I’m Ann and joined this group hoping to learn from the experience of others. I downloaded a pattern to crochet Dad in law (92) a cardigan. I crochet hats and afghans but this is my first sweater. Pattern calls for Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash (100% washable wool; 220 yd [200 m]/31/2 oz [100 g]; ): #816 grey, 14 (15, 16, 17, 18) balls. Whew! I had no idea a sweater would cost so much. I understand using quality materials, as I am a quilter.. however, I don’t even know if I will be good at this or if he will wear it. Is there a non wool substitute. I don’t yet understand much about yarn types. Thanks in advance.🤦‍♀️

I will see about potential cone yarn research for your need. First I will look at the weight of the recommended yarn.

If nothing else I get interesting patterns from the search too! I can handle most Aran style knitting stitches (under 15 years of knitting experience)...

What helps me is fascinating yarn colors and a tv show (you know, the voice that likes to chatter while you’re doing handcrafts. She’s quiet if you gift her with a movie, etc!).

Been having a bit of fun in the last couple of weeks, dabbling. I found a pattern for a quilted frog filled with poly-pellets. One of my friends is "into" frogs and is also partially color blind and can only really differentiate greens. So I decided to try my hand at making a frog for her for Christmas. So this morning I poured the pellets into the frog -- the pellets are weighted and about the size of a small piece of barley and used to create weighted blankets as well as toy stuffing. I used them here because the weight facilitates the frog's ability to maintain various positions. Then I created a compound button using some buttons from my friends recently departed adopted mother-in-law -- thought that might give it some extra meaning. I must say I spent more time on the buttons than any other part of this project and that includes piecing and quilting the fabric. Thought you might enjoy seeing this. Now I have to go hide the frog, probably in plain sight, until it is wrapped and ready for the holidays.

Put something OTHER than green so your friend cannot see it!

That is why I stick to my homemade chocolate milk! My heart races but I don’t have the serious spike that coffee has.

Purr-fect! A short trip for some of the greens, bacon, and chicken stock!
