I knitted a Lizard Ridge last year and I couldnt keep my cats off of it. They really like to suck on and cuddle the Noro. Anyway, Im not saying this to be mean, I just wanted to give you some honest feedback. Next time you make a blanket be a little more careful with your seaming. In the close up you could see a bit of the orange thread where you sewed the seams together. For my first blanket I went to my LYS and had them help me with my seams. It took a little practice, but eventually I got them where they were pretty much invisible. Ok, I totally said my comment with love I promise! So please dont be offended.

So far I have made a few of these ornaments, I plan on including them in a gift basket. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206148.0, I learned how to can and made apple butter, Pumkin butter, and Strawberry Margarita Jelly. I will make gift baskets with the jellies, bisket mix, fancy spreading knives and ornaments. Im planning on giving these to coworkers, and family members who love jelly!

For the man in my life I made what I call love tokens. He is at home more than I am and ends up doing almost all of the chores around the house, so out of appriciation of his hard work I made tokens out of sparkle gold fimo clay. I drew a heart in the middle and then around the side wrote things like walk the dog, do the dishes, and a few free hug, and I love you's. They turned out really well. Im also making him a stenciled tee with an image of a vintage bicycle on it. He's really into cycling, so Im sure he will love it.

Would you mind posting a pic of one of the finished baskets? My friends and I got together a few weeks ago to do some canning. It was great, I had never done it before and I am quite happy with the way my jellies turned out. We are getting together in a few weeks to decorate our jars and put together gift baskets. Im not very good at coordinating things into a basket. I'd love to see yours finished so I can get a better idea of how I might present my own. THANKS!!!!!

What are you guys doing with ground chalk? (Sorry I havent read pages 20-26)
Handling ground chalk can cause ring worm infections. Chalk creates the perfect environment on the surface of skin to allow fungus to start growing. If you are handling chalk wear gloves and be sure to wash your hands throughly.

HELP! I made the detergent recipe last night. When I poured it into my large jug and the mixture was warm I throughly mixed it with warm water and filled the jug to what looked to be about 2gallons. (I didnt measure 2 gallons exactly) So this morning when I went to use the new detergent the thick part had seprarated from the water. I shook the bottle to mix it up but it was still chunky and a strange consistancy when I measured some out to use in todays wash. HELP!!!!! What went wrong? Im guessing I added too much water to the final mixture.

I am a little challanged when it comes to sewing. Do you think it would be too much to add a tut? I think I would need a little help (like seeing a visual image of how you shaped the crotch) before I attempted to do this on my own. Its a great idea, and a fun way to recycle!

Flaky - Its all Noro Keureyon. I tend to like the bright colors more than darker color runs. It seems that most of the new Noro colors are all dark. If you want I will pull out my skien wrappers and list all the colorways that I have used so far. *sigh* I still wish I had used Silk Garden instead. It feels nicer and comes in prettier colors. Oh well.

As promised picts of my progress. The first finished panel is really long so I just sort of bent it over to fit it in the photo.

And here is my kitty Eames testing it out. He definatly approves! Actually he thinks everything I knit is a kitty blanket just for him  Tongue
