How lovely! Not sure of how big it is--your friend could frame it and be able to admire it all the time!
Not completely mindless because you hve to remember to change colors in the pattern you established--we are not getting older...we are beginning to "work" smarter!!!! Love the blanket!
They are beautiful. What fabulous family memories!!!
I happen to be tall and for some reason I don't like the way ponchos hang on me. Your work is lovely and some of the other suggestions (belted, with a turtleneck) are good ones. But I know -- you have to love it in order to wear it.
Mine is being done in stockinette. I like cooler colors so I used blues, purples and greens. I'm making it for a queen sized bed. It got over 110 where we live, in the suburbs of Los Angeles last month so I had another Color! The World Series starts tomorrow-- Go Dodgers!
I too, am working on a temperature blanket. I am knitting. I tend to like cooler colors, so mine is blues, greens, purples. I am making mine for a queen-sized bed. 8 months in; it is getting heavier and heavier to work on!!!!
Emma: Our son spent 4 years at UCC studying medicine. We had numerous trips to Cork and Ireland in general. Loved every minute! Very fond memories of the English Market, walking downtown, visiting the pubs, Cobn etc. Love the yarn! Barbara Cohen
I, too saw this on the Lion Brand site and thought I would do it. I have been traveling, so mine will also we a memory blanket! We have been in Israel and Italy, going on a cruise this summer and a nephew's graduation in Ohio--my repeats will be a bit crazy! Can't wait to get started!
Your are "sounding" like you are on the road to mojo recovery! Lovely cowl--bright, airy and uplifting!
Can't wait to try this. The directions look so complete and easy to follow. Love it!!!
Found the pattern: externalfile:oedeeodfidgoollimchfdnbmhcpnklnd:~%2FDownloads%2F2016082901 (1)%2Ezip:09811b3f5d9f9715b0064f1d2ea848c3da611214/Luna_Poppy.pdf
Wonder what the look would be if you did the colors on the knit stitches???
I made this sweater a few years ago out of beautiful wool I bought in Argentina. Unfortunately, I can't wear wool, even with a long sleeved top under it. So my niece is now the proud owner of my wonderful sweater! The double moss stitch drove me crazy--won't do that again--but the overall sweater was great!
I spent a summer in Monticello, NY as a child. My grandmother ran a bar on Lake Kyamesa where the caddies from the hotels would gather. It was a wonderful summer. My sister and I went to Silbert's Day camp. Coming from Southern California; I found the woods, grass, humidity, salamanders so different!!!
I really did laugh out loud--when my husband asked what was so funny, I read him your posting--he just looked at me and asked, "So, what is so funny?" Non-knitters just don't get it. Anyway, lots of words to say--your dress is lovely--I like the way the colors worked. How grand will a little one look in a red, white, or black long sleeved tee, matching tights and your dress!!! I would love one!!! (ok, jumbo size is not included in the instructions!)
