Love that etching -- another thing I've always wanted to try!  (Going back to revise the list....)

Thanks for the comments on the cowl; my sister had made me a similar one several years ago with just two buttons, and I always thought a third would keep it a little closer to me neck.

The stitch is from Karen Hemingway's Super Stitches Knitting and is called Diagonal Grain stitch.
Multiple of 4 stitches + 1
Row 1: (right side) Knit across.
Row 2: P1 *wrap yarn around needle, P2, pass yarn over P2, P2 *  -- repeat *to* to the end.
Row 3: Knit across.
Row 4: P1, *P2, wrap yarn around needle, P2, pass yarn over P2 * -- repeat *to* to the end.

In retrospect I would have done a border of seed stitch all around, but I'm pretty pleased with it!

whoa!  THere was a lot to catch up on!  LOVE that pillow case.  I guess the  next few weeks for me are dedicated to baby quilts.  I picked out fabrics last week and started cutting out for one.... but today at work they announced they're doing a surprise shower for our pregnant coworker in 2 weeks, so her's goes to the top of the list now

Ooh, thanks for sharing the pattern, yofi!  Makes sense, too.  It looks like a holey stockinette (in a good way!) that's amazingly not curling.  Which seems like a knitting miracle.

I can finally cross something off of my list. I made a Black Apple doll last night.

I'm still knitting away on my sweater. I don't think it will ever be done.

FINALLY something I can post. Technically this was a homework assignment for my fibers class, but I did originally have practice embroidery stitches on my list anyway so I'm counting it.

38. practice embroidery stitches



The ironic thing is I misunderstood the homework thinking I had to use at least 4 different stitches for each piece, when it was actually 4 totally stitches used among 6 different pieces.... Roll Eyes Oh well, practice right.

Depends if dh goes to work or not.Hopefully he will,I get more done if he does  Undecided.

Yup, I hear that!


My kids have hats like that! My daughter's kinder teachers kept wanting to steal hers, so I made them both one for end of year presents!

sheepBlue - those pics are great! I suck at embroidery, I only use it to make faces on my amigurumi, but I'm jealous of people with mad skillz like yours! Love the fist!

One tip on using circular needles:  I gently blow mine with a blow dryer and then use my hands to unkink them...if you try to use them out of your storage holder, they will twist and you will hate using them...


I thought that was user error! Thanks alwaysinmyroom, much appreciated tip!

Great stuff everybody, no pics from this end - I prefer waiting till things are done, so probably a few more weeks/months and you can see quilts and sweaters.

Debating on continuing newly started sweater or go back and finish sleeve and hood on long ago started sweater I put it down for Christmas crafting and haven't gotten back to it

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/
