Just finished this cute felted pin cushion. I lost my dear knitting companion - my cat of 17 years Fiona in July 2011 and when she left this earth she took my heart AND my desire to knit. So I went a long long time not knitting at all - just pretending to care about knitting when really I did not.
I couldn't stand being in a big old house with no cats any longer , so three days before Christmas my husband and I adopted two Russian Blue sisters - 9 months old. BAM! …Continue
Hey everybody. Just found this today and didn't want to lose it before I got a chance to really take the time to watch it, and thought others might want to, too!
So here it is. Channel Island cast-on. To watch here:

Joanie, Ellen and I stopped there after the Acorn Antique Fair. We always stop there when we can. Joanie was looking for yarn for a poncho with a cowl attached. The people who work there are very helpful.
When you come in the door, you see a nice selection of bags and…
What I have been working on:
Back in October I created a ‘meet-up’ at work for others who knit or crochet. There were 8 of us that showed up. We meet approx every other week in the cafeteria at work on Wednesday nights.
In February the Knit Picks Community had a Virtual Spin-In. This is what I spun during that weekend: Polworth wool in the Petrified colorway by CloudLover. I got 138 yards in a 2-ply at a Worsted…Continue
Knit With Love - Stories to warm a knitter's heart by Lisa Bogart
super! This book is just super. It's got the knitter's language and God's as well. The way
Lisa mixes them together makes them fit right into their place, like a jigsaw puzzle. When I
first started reading this I thought, this is a…

I finally finished the pair of fingerless mitts I knitted on commission after many trials and tribulations. Cast on this Star Trek emblem and preamble scarf I have planned as a gift for my son. I have never done fair isle color knitting except on a Bond knitting machine so this is another new skill I am learning. As I learn more knitting techniques, stitches, cast on and cast off methods I like to share those with my knitting friends. As part of my efforts to knit down my stash, I am…Continue

|"Harvest" Shawl 1 from the Mythos Collection|
I'm trying to finish a project and am in desperate need of 1 skein of "Merino Style" yarn in "Big Sky." This yarn has been discontinued from the Knit Picks website, so I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would be willing to give up one of their own from their stash! Of course, I will pay for the yarn & shipping.
One disappointed and miscalculating knitter….

The pattern is the Chiloquilters Train Quilt. They placed the trains in strips, but in my version, there will be two trains, each going around two sides of the quilt, with a "tunnel" between each, so four blocks by four blocks. I designed the "tunnel." The other blocks are from the original quilt. I'll…Continue
I swore I wouldn't post until I had something to show and tell, and so I've been knitting like a mad woman since, well, I haven't really stopped since September. My focus has been all over the place. I went on a mitten kick for a while to give my friend something to put on her web shop. I also made a bunch of tie-dyed onesies for it. I cast-on a few things, including my Granny Smith Apple Cardigan, and then Christmas knitting started in earnest over Veteren's Day weekend. I made…Continue
Diane is working on a block from Hop to It by Edyta Sitar. …
I have a few physical challenges that sometimes limit my knitting, crocheting and polymer clay work. I have MS and RA; and both are centered on my right side. I am right handed so you can see that I have a little bit of a challenge. However, I am not complaining by a long shot. When I was diagnosed with MS as a child there were no medicines and the medical community treated it much the same way as they did anything they did not understand. They recommended that families put their loved…Continue
