Hendrix's dress

Posted on March 26, 2010 at 6:37am 5 Comments

So I posted this dress 2 years ago when my daughter was almost 1. I had made this dress for her but it never seemed like the right time to wear it until today. Here she is 1 week away from her 3rd birthday and happily sporting her knitted dress. I can't believe it still fits, thank goodness I made it big and yarn is…

My Little Bubbles Set

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 10:09am 7 Comments

Well here it is in all its glory and I still have 26 days to spare before baby boy gets here. I really enjoyed knitting this and can't wait to get one for my 2 year old daughter started but I think that may have to wait for a little bit now. I am trying to wrap up all the projects I can before my time is consumed by two kids. Hopefully it will be magically manageable and I will be able to start Hendrix's sweater right away so that I won't miss out on the photo… Continue

The kids catalog is in the mail and available online.

The kids catalog is one of my favorites because we get to choose cute things to knit from small garments to toys, toys, toys and being a mom I can appreciate all these things. It does come with its own challenges as children are as unpredictable as animals when it comes to modeling so there are far more outtakes than usable images, but the upside to this is that the parents get a lot of pictures… Continue

Wedding Gift

Posted on May 12, 2009 at 10:14am 13 Comments

So two of my best friends are getting married this summer and they aren't registering for gifts because they are older and have all the basic necessities but I really wanted to do something for them. So I found this chart for the Tree of Life and am going to make a little accent pillow for them. I really wanted to do a blanket but with a baby due in July, a two year old and the wedding at the end of August I had to be realistic. Anyways, I knit it with double-stranded… Continue

OpArt Baby Blanket

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 8:30am 16 Comments

This is the OpArt Baby Blanket from Fall 2008 Knitty. I immediately fell in love with it because not only is it not overly baby it appeals to the graphic design side of me. At the time I wasn't pregnant but knew that was part of the upcoming plans so I kept it in the back of my mind. So when we did get pregnant and we finally found out it was going to be a boy, I knew this was the perfect blanket and seeing as my husband is a… Continue

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email:( for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,

Hi, Christy. I love the catalog... all of them. The one thing, however, that I find just a little annoying would be the wonderful photos of projects... with no descriptions about them. In addition to the book from which they came and the yarn info to make it, I'd love to see a little description about the specific pattern pictured. If I have the book I can just look it up, but, often, I don't. Just something brief, like you include with the kit patterns, for example. The photos are large, and often very detailed, but a brief description would be appreciated as well.

I think I noticed it most in the most recent (April 2009) catalog on pages 14 & 15 with the projects from Mason-Dixon Knitting: outside the lines. I am very intrigued by these and would love just a little more data about them because I don't have the book yet.

Thanks for such awesome catalogs and photography!

MONOGRAM 2.xlsCollegiate Socks.docI'm trying to attach the files. Hope it works.

I'd be more than happy to share this pattern. The general instructions are in Microsoft Word and the pattern for the monogram was created in Excel. Are those file formats OK for you. I'll send them later this week if that is OK.

Thanks, I'm glad you like them. I made the first pair for our office Christmas party last year. Since there are several Mountaineers in the office, I thought they would be a big hit. We do a swap style gift exchange, and the guy who got them, didn't realize what he had received. Later that day one of the ladies in the office, told him they were one of a kind handknitted, etc. and he came to find me and thank me for taking all the trouble. After Christmas he told me that he kept them for lounging in after work while he watched TV. He raved about how soft and warm they are. I used the Palette yarn.

I knitted a second paid for my boss's retirement in February, and he seemed thrilled. My other knitting friend in the office knitted him a Blue/Gold afghan (one of her signatures), and he was overwhelmed.

I wrote out the pattern so that it could be duplicated. I have a few orders for similar socks in other school colors, too.

Just got my new catalog today. I just love when it arrives. My mind does flip flops imagining how to use new products.

You sent me an email response several months ago, and I mentioned my original sock patterns. I tried all this time to email them to you, but the dialup that I have to use - Rural, OH just would'nt do it.

I put pictures of my socks and my dog sweaters (my first real project) on my new MY PAGE. Just look for Blue Lake Knitter, and let me know what you think. The collegiate socks are made with Pallette and the Feather and Fan socks from some leftover Lion Brand Microspun

Hope you like them. I'm probably going to put a few more pictures on this weekend.

Thanks. I value your opinion.
