About Me:
I learned to knit as a kid but did not keep up with it. When my mother passed away more than 14 years ago, I didn't want our family tradition of her knitted Christmas stockings to go by the wayside. So I picked up knitting again and became addicted to it.

Tips and Tricks and More: What on earth does this designer mean?

Posted on June 14, 2011 at 10:30pm 255 Comments

Have you ever been stumped by all those crazy knitting abbreviations? Well, because knitting has developed around the world, there are so many different techniques that are similar and so many terms that really describe the same or very similar things. Therefore you will find that knitting abbreviations will vary. Hopefully the designer will be kind enough to give a list of the abbreviations s/he uses. If not, hopefully these will help.

Do You Hoard?

Posted on June 6, 2011 at 7:36am 44 Comments

My sweet DH sent me a link this morning. Please check it out here. His comment to me was, "This is what happens when knitters hoard..."

My comment back was, "We don't hoard! Just think of us as the Honor Guard. But doesn't this mean we need to protect more fiber? Off to save some more fiber."

So please do your fair share today and…

In the process of putting together a sock, while working on the flap back and forward, Dutch heel I think it's called, I work on a stitch pattern...slip 1, k1 across, turn purl all. Well it turn out very nicely, liked the padded feel. I wanted to do the same along the sole section. Problem was.. while working on the round I could not purl...but it hit me afterwards that I can slip1, k1 on one round and knit all on the second round, and alternate. That should be the same as going back and forth as I did on the heel, right.  On the same subject, what else can I do do create a nice cushy sole? Suggestions are greatly appreciated. This was my first knitted sock, not bad at all... used super fine yarn (sock yarn).  Thank you in advance... // Felix

Hey, Cheryl, thanks for writing back.  I was beginning to think you didn't love me any more.  lol right?  Yes, this is going to be an ordeal.  I have friends and priests praying for me around the globe.  You are the only one saying she will light a candle for me.  Thanks for that. 

I wish you were closer, too.  I could really use a friendly knitter to talk to.  There aren't very many that I have come across at the new residence.  My mother in law lives with me now and he has had me refresh her with the knitting.  She took a class years ago and now is trying to re-learn.  She is 93 and tries hard, but I don't think she will be knitting lace any time soon.

My sunroom is my favorite place to spin.  Come join me any time you are in Georgia.
