I finally finished this monster of a blanket:


I thought it was going to be queen-sized, but it's actually just an inch or two shy of king-sized.  I'm calling this one Starry Night, but on my queen-sized bed you can't really see the over-all star-ish shape to the white squares layout.  I'm going to have to borrow a king-sized bed for the pattern picture, clearly!

I've been noticing lately that when I click on the "new" button it doesn't take me to the first unread message in that thread.  I think it's actually just taking me to the latest message instead.

kbrison: the next one I'm working on is another big one, it's black and white, and I'm hoping it'll look like a star in the end. Fingers crossed!

ETA: just realized I have a preview pic of the one I'm working on now:



Is anyone else noticing that clicking on the "new" button doesn't take you to your first unread reply anymore?  I feel like I've missed a lot.  I'm going to have to go through the whole thread again, just to make sure!

Another granny blanket!  This one in fire colours. Cheesy

Oh, elliot_anne, these are stunning!  I especially love the fire stick plant.  So beautiful!

This one took way too long to make.  Sick of the snow, maybe!

Hmm, let's see.  You need to divide the number of pegs in half, and centre that half on the peg that holds the yarn (the one that sicks out sideways).

Wrap the leg coloured yarn around each peg, stopping before  that last quarter, then work the loops off.  Join the heel yarn on the peg after where you stopped to start the heel.

You need to do a "fast" decrease.  So, say you have 6 pegs on each side of the middle.  Wrap 6 pegs to the middle, then 5 more, knit the heel loops off.  Then go back, wrap to the middle, then do 4 more (then knit them off).  Go back, wrap to the middle, then 3 more (knit off).  Go back, wrap to the middle then 2 more.

Now you need to increase, but much more slowly.

Wrap back to the middle, then 2 more (knit off).  Wrap back to the middle, then 3 more (knit off) TWICE.  Wrap back to the middle then 4 more (knit off) TWICE.  Back to the middle then 5 more (knit) TWICE.  Back to the middle then 6 more (knit) TWICE. 

Cut the heel yarn.

Pick up your leg yarn and wrap the remaining pegs on that round (careful not to re-wrap the last one you did), knit all of the pegs that need it, then continue on as normal for the foot.

When I followed the instructions in the video I found there were large holes along the edges of the heel, which I sewed shut as I wove in the ends on my first attempt.  After that, I changed how I turned around when working in rows, and I'd sort of half-wrap the peg in the opposite direction before turning back, and don't knit that half-wrap.  Pretend it is one with the loop(s) that was already on the peg.

I hope this helps!

I, too, love that the ladle isn't straight.  Using the natural shape of the wood makes it special, and it makes sense for something that is hand-carved.

And I *love* the shape of the bowl part.  It's *beautiful*!!

Ok, this one is my favourite out of all of them, I think!


I'm going to have to make a bigger one for me!  I'm calling it Nebula.
