Convertible mittens are fine. I usually don't cover the thumb on my mitts. I'd make sure it was ok with KP's before using pattern. I can check that for you. I don't want to get sued for violating any copywriting issues. I'm donating not selling but I just want to be sure first. So knit awayvand then send them to me. You can send me a message through knitpicks where I can give you address to send them.
Thanks for the suggestions on the cure caps. What kind of yarn is your favorite to wear (or knit with) for these? I am anxious to get started even tho I have several projects on needles. Guess I need to buy more needles. Ha vk
Yes you did it right, we are not full time RV but go whenever we have the chance. We also have a 1925 Model T Ford and we traler it all over behind the RV and then drive it around. This past Aug we went to Rapid City, SD and drove almost 800 miles in the T We meet up with about 200 other T people and we have a great time. i can knit in any vehicle we are in EXCEPT the T I have to help with the road signs and watching were we are going.
I left out a word it is Orange Lake, FL right off I 75 between Gainesville and Ocala We really like it there big cement pads and driveway. Have some good friends we have meet over the years. Yes knitting is a good RV hobby and love to knit and set in the sun. It is cold and snow blowing here, ready to go back south. What are you working on?
Did you say you live in a RV ?? We have one and we take it to Orange Lake FL and leave it all winter. We live in KY and just come home to SNOW and COLD but want to spend time with the children and grandchildren will be back to FL after Christmas. I knit all the way down and back home am making mittens for the grandchildren finished one pair and started another.
Hey, Martha. Sorry to have taken so long to discover this post. I'm sooooo bad about checking.
Yes, this is the first time I have ever had a retail shop. It's fun, but there are down sides, too. I just finished doing the paperwork for 2009, and need to get with the tax guy.... Bleah! This next trip we are planning on taking the RV down to Naples so we can take the dogs. But if we head down to our timeshare in Orlando, your place would be a perfect stopover! Thanks for the offer. Same, of course, goes for you if you are ever up this way. I actually live in SC, just north of Spartanburg, but it's only 10 miles from the shop.
I am so glad you are recovering. That's the good news. The bad news is: there is no cure for the knitting obsession! I know. I've had it a long time. (That's why I opened the yarn shop when I retired from w.o.r.k.). If you ever get up here, stop by. My shop is 1 mile off of I-26 at exit NC 67 (first exit in NC coming from Charleston). We go through your area often on our way to Florida. We'll probably be passing by in May on our way to a wedding in Naples, FL. That's the area we usually spend the night to break up the trip when we go to Orlando, but I think we'll have to go further down before we stop so we can make it to Naples the next day. It would be nice to be able to meet, but maybe next time.
