That is spectacular. Could you please point me in the direction of the pattern? Thanks!
Well, if you ever decide that knitting is not your thing (heavens!), you could write stories for a living! You are a phenomenal story teller and I laughed out loud more than once reading your tale. I must admit I saw a bit (OK, more than a bit) of myself in your adventure! Thanks for making me smile today! Enjoy your new stash!
What a great idea! My son recently got engaged and I've been struggling with how, as the mother of the groom, to participate with something personal. They aren't getting married until later next year so colors, etc. are not decided on, but this would be a lovely gift for the bridal party, which will be small I'm told. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing. I have been looking for a baby blanket pattern and received several great ideas from other KPers. This one is lovely too! I need to make 2 blankets so this might be one!
Hi all, I'm looking for your favorite knit baby blanket pattern. Good friend's daughter expecting her 2nd (a girl this time). Mom is a busy new doctor so something that is durable vs. frilly/fancy/fussy is best. I did a beautiful blanket last summer for another friend and although I loved it, would like to try something new. Willing to pay for a pattern but free is always better! Yes, I have looked through Ravelry and a couple of other places, but am interested in what you talented group have done/would recommend and if you have a picture to send along, even better! Thanks in advance.
I prefer the bigger pattern, although depends what you are going to do with it. For a scarf, the larger one might be too big once its blocked? Both are lovely though. Can't go wrong!
WOW! Your work is fantastic! Absolutely gorgeous. I have a question though. I don't think I will ever be brave enough to steek something that I have made but I am wondering why this piece was steeked? I thought it was a pullover? It is likely my ignorance of the whole steek mystique but I am curious. Thanks.
Hi there, I am in the same position, having become the stocking maker after my grandmother passed away. She also made the stockings from a 40s or 50s kit pattern for all of her children, grandchildren, great grands and inlaws. She was no longer knitting when the last inlaw (my brother's wife) came into the family, so I tackled that one, as a fairly new knitter (I learned as an adult). I was able to track it down. A copy is attached. If not, I think the one you did is fabulous. I would love to know the pattern? Thanks!
Thanks, I just ordered a magnifier one!
These are so beautiful! Would love to see the pattern if you reduce it to writing. Wonderful!
I have looked at so many different choices online but I think I'm between the childrens play mats at Walmart and the Harbor Freight mats. I wish I had kept the kids mats we had when my boys were little (I wonder if they are still in the garage somewhere....). The HB mats are huge (25 in sq) and a set of 4 is $9! Since the HB is an in store purchase vs. online, I will drop by there and take a look. Otherwise it will be the kids mats.
Hi all, I would like to get some blocking mats so I can stop dreading finishing up projects so much. Do you have a favorite? If so, what is it? Do you have one that you really didn't like? Interested in that too. Thanks!
I finally finished this baby set for my neighbor's new granddaughter born just before Christmas. The project got set aside for holiday knitting and then the dreaded 'finishing' parts, buttons, weaving. I'm not very good at weaving and wish it it didn't show (or at least that I couldn't see it), but hey, it is handmade!
Everything about this is beautiful, the thought, the reason, the love for your friend. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.
