Re: Knitting

There's no such thing as "too much yarn!"

Re: Knitting

It is when you have enough yarn to make over a dozen blankets

Re: Knitting

I'm making a scarf in fall colors (a rusty reddish orange, a dark sand color, and a variegated dark brown to lighter green)


I can't work wool - I itch - and the shop had such pretty colors

I can use alpaca, but damn- it's expensive

Re: Knitting

I quit knitting a while back - made a major mistake and needed to take an entire row out

Well - my area in now on a 30 day "hibernate" order (not total lock down)

So...I carefully ripped out the row, and will hopefully finish the baby blanket.

Re: Knitting

I've gotten another 6" done on the blanket. Should be able to get it finished in a week.

I've already got 2 more baby blankets planned/on "order" for family members, thing is I've had to order yarn as hobby/craft stores in my area are closed/non-essential.

Re: Knitting

Finished the blanket today & started on the next one (for great-nephew).

I have one planned for great-niece (I'm not even a grandmother yet).


After I get those two done I plan to get a couple more done so that I'm ahead for a change.

Re: Knitting

DD asked me to crochet her a mask to wear for the pandemic. I was like "Uh, that won't block..." but then googled patterns. I made her a mask with yarn I had bought for baby hats (for charity) that is soft and washable and lined it with a pouch I made out of an old (ripped) 650 thread count sheet. She can put a paper towel or a coffee filter in the pouch. LOL. She tried it on and said "I can't breathe! Perfect!" ROFL

Re: Knitting

kaykay, what patterns can you do?

I've just recently learned to do the basket weave - so that doubled my repertoire. (I can do stockinette)


I was wondering what might be a next good pattern to learn - any suggestions?

I was thinking about bamboo or star.

Re: Knitting

Saw a cool pattern called snake skin. I didn't want to spend about $15 on the pattern booklet just for one pattern.
