Please can anyone help my grand daughter is coming to see me from Australia next week and she has asked me to knit a golly and I just cannot find a pattern anywhere

Thank you for posting this request.
Please ignore all the negative responses.
I am sure you will honour the child’s request.
I grew up during the Robertsons Golly era and married into a family ‘of a different colour’
My aunt in Canada knitted a golly for every child, every grandchild and the greatgrands and is still getting requests.
So I say to each his own, you know your own situation and if the child wants one go ahead and knit one. Still lots of patterns out there, I wonder why if it soooo offensive?
Folk should stop putting their principles onto others.
If you live in a chicken coop and you are surviving, who is anyone else to tell you to move?
Been there, done that.
I will probably get a lot of flack for my response.
Golly on my fridge!

It happened again. Someone from across the alley backed into my back parking, tearing off my downspout and dragging away the large tomato cage I had put over it to keep them away from the downspout. Can't remember how many times I've had someone smash the downspout so rain can't get out. Also have a back fence that has been hit 3 times now, at least once by trash truck. Can't prove who is doing it. Have strung "crime scene" tape around back fence and put large yellow fake flowers so I hoped they'd see the fence. One bunch of flowers also vanished. Any ideas on how to stop this? The neighbors change regularly as this is a college town.

Stuff was happening in my yard too.
Installed C.C.T.V. Then made no bones about informing the neighbours.
I had seen the children vandalizing plants and fruit trees.
They have now been visited by the parish constable!
No problems since!

Try EZ's sewn Bind-off. Quick and easy to learn and do, very stretchy, very pretty finish. Doesn't flare or roll. IMHO, it is the best BO for sock cuffs.

Thank you.
Did it and liked it.
Good result, nice stretch.
Not as fast to do as a regular bind off but I will get a bit faster with the next one.
Will post pickies later when I have a pair.

I like Jenny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bindoff.

I’ve done that one too and did not find it as stretchy as they say!

Suggestions and links needed please.
Done loads of socks, up and down.
Never been happy with the cuff bind off.
Was not happy with the Swedish (Scandinavian) either.
I looked at the tubular bind off too, using a blunt needle, too much like Kitchener!!!
What can you recommend as an easy to remember bind off?
I am at a loss.

This is my first experience with Short rows and in theory it should have been easy-peasy , but... There is only one W & T per row, but I am having a very difficult time seeing the wrap because this is laceweight yarn and picking it up is a difficulty as well for the same reason. I am wondering if anyone might have any suggestions/tricks for improving my chances of seeing and picking up the yarn. Right now I am questioning my sanity in choosing this pattern.

Look for lighted magnifier glasses on the web. Got mine from China. Fabulous, I even use them for seeing to undo knots. bout $12 a pair. The LED lights are in the arm pieces.

A cardigan pattern I want to make says "MK" and defines it as K1,p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 all into next st, then pass 6th,5th,4th,3rd,2nd and 1st sts. over 7th st. How on Earth do you do this? Thank you!

Try using a smaller size crochet hook to pull the stitches over.

You are too funny in spite of all your troubles. Missed reading about your adventures in the woods. At least with the land still in the family you can go and visit.
Glad to have you back.

Every time I have to sew buttons on I get confused! Looking at this the way it is now, do I put the buttons on the left or right? I don't know why this just won't stick in my head. Both sides have button holes because I didn't want to worry about it while I was knitting. Thanks for your help.

Right over left (Ladies) Buttonholes on the right.
Left over right (Men) Buttonholes on the left.
Always helps me to remember.

I know there are worse things to worry about but my hair has been falling out so fast there are bald spots all over. No I do not have cancer and I have been to doctors but they know nothing, I have had blood work and pills to help growth no help. I don't even want to leave my house anymore my hairdresser does not know what to do anymore. So what I was wondering if anyone has a pattern for a scarf to wear on your head or a beanie something I could wear going out that does not look bad. Like I said I do know there are so many people that have really bad problems but I am now getting depressed which is really not like me. Please help if you can? Thank you nanad

There was a similar topic on this quite a while ago. Someone asking for suggestions for the hair (not a pattern for a hat to cover up)
One suggestion that came up was to start using Nizoral shampoo. others said the same thing, that it eventually started to help increase hair growth.
May be worth a try.

My letter arrived from college I past my end of year exams etc just in time to start my next acedemic year in 14days time. Without my results I wouldn't have been able to continue. It's a real relief on my mind.

Congratulations, I know how that feels. Thinking back to 1970, passing all my nursing exams. Informed by mail.

I have, a little while ago, watched the TV news as I was having breakfast and they had a segment about Hurricane Dorian and it was sad watching that news.
To all of you who unfortunately may be in it's path, I hope you and your families all stay safe and that not too much damage is done.
I have yet to be in a cyclone, as we call them here, and hope I never will be but have weathered the storms from the tail end of some of them that have hit the coast further up from Bundaberg.
I will be thinking of you all and I presume all other KP members will also be doing so as well.

Thank you Ann.
I was supposed to leave the island on Thursday for my Canadian vacation. It would have been a bumpy airplane ride up to JFK. Even IF the plane got here first.
Did not want to take a chance on missing my tour starting in Calgary, so I managed (at great expense) to change my ticket to Wednesday.
I will have a full day in Calgary now.
What to do in Calgary, my cousin say B----r all! She was stationed there ages ago. I said I would look for a yarn shop. My aunt will disown me if I buy another ball (or two) of yarn!!!!!!!!!
