I have been knitting ever since I was a kid. My mother is the one who showed me how to knit, which is kind of funny as she likes crochet and cross stitch better. I have never been the type to knit scarves. In fact one of my first projects was a sweater set with a skirt. i guess no one told me that you're supposed to start small and work up to the big projects.
What's your Ravelry ID (if you have one)? (www.ravelry.com)
Elenor...I regress...ALL of your knitting is just beautiful...
Omgosh...I have that book and pattern lol..yours is really prettier?...

I've heard of Bonner Springs. I think it's just outside of Kansas City to the West toward Lawrence? I have never heard of Grinter House. Just went to the Kansas State Historical Society website. Wow, I didn't know!! Sounds like a great place to see. Have you been there?
Elenor- I'm so happy that it worked out! Thanks for letting me know how it was going along the way. Did the I-cord border make sense how I explained it? It looks really good!!! Nice even stitches. I love that you tried it with wool. Nice going!!
The potholder is looking so good!! I like it really well in that darker blue, too. Awesome. Isn't it cool how thick it feels? I really like making them that way. The first one I made that way was the Desert Sunset Potholder. Did you see that one? It's HERE. It was my test run... but it took me a long time to make the second one! Later, Peggy
Thanks for info-it is great getting to know you...I only wish it was over a good cup of coffee and coffee cake :-). I have been to Lehman's many times and have been a speaker at a couple of conventions at Sugarcreek Inn (i think that is the name-it is a beautiful place). My husband and I enjoy that area and the Amish communnity. We have traveled there many times together and with friends. I have added you to my prayer list-praying for protection, provision and ministry blessings. Laura
