i finally made a pair of socks!!!!

Thanks to Kelley P's awesome you tube tutorials. It was So EASY, i got my mom to start a pair too. I made a pair of toddler socks for my 1 year old. They are in Caution WOTA (worsted weight) with squirrel grey heels and toes. No pictures, as i just never get a chance, lol.



I am now making a pair of light pink anklet socks (palette sock yarn) for my 6 year old. They will actually have some blue variegated craft store sock yarn ( by some celebrity that i don't recognize) for the heels… Continue

Block of the month ideas needed

Have any of you participated in a Block of the Month club/group with knitting? I have 4 friends who are getting into the knitting like I am and we'd like to do a block of the month blanket or something. Any ideas on how to do it? We've thought about each knitting a block each month that is the same size and exchange them, etc. We get together once a month anyway and do stuff like knitting, stamping, scrapbooking, beading, facebook games, etc. Whatever any of us are currently working… Continue

I Forget When I Am!

I mentioned this in my last podcast episode (#8), but sometimes I forget when I am! Common problem for anyone else? In the old days when I was just knitting for myself and family I would knit things during the season they were relevant to. Sometimes if I was really on the ball I'd knit for Winter during the Fall and for Spring during the Winter, but let's face it, those organized… Continue

Nordic Lights Socks

I just finished blocking the Nordic Lights Socks. They feel exquisite! so warm and cushion-y due to the stranding. I knit them on size 2 Harmony double-points rather than the size 1's called for in the pattern. Half way through the first sock on 1's I realized they were going to be too tight, especially at the turn. These were a fun pair to knit. I used pop-top bobbins for the hand painted yarn to make yarn untwisting simpler.



I bought more of the yarn to make a pair of mittens using… Continue

In Your Dreams, Kid

Wouldn't it be fun to have a knit cafe to go hang out in? Instead of gathering at the local Starbucks or book store wouldn't it be nice to instead meet up at a cozy yarn shop that also had a little cafe? and even hosted concerts on weekends and/or evenings? Imagine... shelves and baskets of gorgeous yarns... a swift and ball winder set up in the corner... a large table to gather at for classes... comfortable chairs and a sofa or two for hanging out and knitting alone or with a group (non class… Continue

Spinning Straw into Gold… or my first Jacquard Dye Experience



As I spun up my first 4 oz. of my golden llama/mohair fleece, I was very surprised at how the light would hit the yarn as it was spinning, and how all of the different shades would shine. Then I thought of the fairy tale …

Working on the design

Feeling better since yesterday. Pretty much rested and took it easy. I

started thinking of this projected I worked on the other day. I decided

that that this would be great as a blanket using this motif as a border

around a square. I haven't thought out yet what the body needs to be.

If the border stands out, then probably make ita garter stitch body. Sometimes, basic is good. Anyway, here are some pics to see my quirky process.…

Round Ripple Afghan

As much as I love knitting, I am a faster crocheter. They both create such beautiful fabrics.



My absolute favorite is Lyn's Ripple Blanket. This pattern can also be directed to Ravelry under Lyn's Round Ripple Baby Afghan if you are searching for this type of crochet pattern. There is a slightly different rhythm in crocheting that I

like. You don't have…

Baxter's Blog

Hi! I'm...arf...Baxter, canine brother of Daphne Dawn. You know her.





She's the new young one at my house. The parents and that old lady who cleans and cooks and sometimes feeds me are always using that funny thing that makes bright light right in her face, and mine, too. They say they're "taking photos," but they don't seem to be taking anything, just blinding me!…

Little Purls

I hear a lot of knitters going on about how they don't enjoy purling. Why not? I've never quite understood the reasoning behind the lack of purl love. Even from my earliest days of knitting I found that purls weren't that bad. I actually purl faster than I knit. Go figure. I did also notice one day that my purls were a little looser than my knits, however, that was immediately fixed by pulling a tad harder on the yarn during purl rows. Easy fix once noted. So, why are purls so bad? The… Continue

done!

see--I really have been busy..80 hours and 20 skeins of Red Heart Soft Wheat later----I present THE afghan..72 x 90---

the project was crochet, and in an unusual twist for me, involved making the fringe at the same time..I started each row by leaving a length, then at the end of the row, cut it, and left about 6-8 inches for fringe..then back to the beginning again.…

Missing my knitting friends and knitting

It's probably been over a month since I've picked up my needles. No, I'm not sick, just very occupied. This past week I had my last Cub Scout den meeting, my last AWANA club meeting, and my last Cub Scout Pack meeting (with overnight camping in tents!) Now I am trying to hammer out my summer Sunday school schedule and decide on crafts to teach at summer Cub Scout camp. Each day has a theme, so it has been kind of a challenge to come up with something really interesting. I love the traditional… Continue

Victoria Day

Hello Knitters,

Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians! I hope everyone has been enjoying this lovely long weekend. I've been having a blast spending time with my family! Yesterday my sister and I went kayaking up and down the river, which is the perfect way to get burnt we found out! My sister is red as a tomato today! I'm not as bad. We realized this morning that we only got…
