Some 'bravery blankies' that I finished recently and will send off to the Oncology ward of Crumlin Children's Hospital, in Dublin (full name: Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin). Every child arriving on the Oncology ward is given a 'blankie' which is theirs. It is a great way of using up bits of yarn. Each is about 16 inches across.
Good for you, I make little hats from tiny tiny to normal to fit bigger babies & they go to the Rotunda (Maternity Hospital) Are Crumlin always in need of blankies, do you have a contact there???
They are lovely, I don't crochet so would be making little knitted ones.
I finished the last ornament Christmas day and we ... (
They are great, I made about 30 mini Christmas puddings & put a Ferro Rocher sweet in each, they were a great hit & only took about 30 minutes each to make, I also did 1 mini Penguin to fit same sweets but it was too fiddly!!!
Posting photos is not working for me for a while I will have to sort it soon - so sorry no photo
Thank you all for being there, lovely patterns, photos etc, etc etc
I am not a nervous passenger or driver .....BUT I don't do those speeds either!!
Great that she is recovering well
I made this sweater using this free Ravelry pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cabled-heather-for-him
Using Brown Sheep Nature Spun 100% wool, color 225 Brick Road, my gauge was different, so I reconfigured all the stitch counts and just used the graphs. The rich texture adds interest to a plain yarn.
Love the way the pattern continued up for the neck.
A great knit as usual.
I would love the pattern if at all possible. I do crochet and knitting and always looking for something different.
my email is email@example.com
Just curious have you connections with Ballyvourney, Co. Wicklow, Ireland
As usual, it is lovely, I saw that yarn but was unsure how it would knit up so I passed on it, perhaps I will try it next year when it comes round again.
My favourite pattern is Little coffee bean a top down easy seamless--
No need to be afraid of circulars, they are brilliant, I gave away all my straights about 10 years ago when I was given a present of GOOD circulars, now I use them even for straight knitting.
I don't know where in Dublin you are but I would be happy to meet up & start you off on them if you would like to.
Very best wishes, & remember Phonegals prayer it is beautiful
brilliant, i did need to look twice
It knits up a little large. My only complaint is that when you tie it off, it tries to open up and you have to tie it in a couple of times to make sure it stays put.
Tata for the tip, hope I remember when the time comes!
I bought the same yarn but have not knitted it up yet, a load of projects on hand & so little time!!
Buttons, as usual, a perfect match.
DH did ours about a month ago, he did 3 coats so had to wait for it to dry then light sand then another coat then sand again!!!!!
Took all day Saturday & Sunday we didn't put furniture back till the Tuesday & tried to keep the dogs out for a few more days. Their claws are so sharp!!!
It is well worth all the disruption looks amazing now.
Third time we have done it in 22 years, the room has had very heavy use always.
I live in the country so very rarely on public transport!
See what I am missing!!
