1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lace knitting - just not understanding this chart on: July 31, 2014 06:54:18 PM
This is a beautiful pattern indeed! Looking at the chart, I think it is just that the repeat is not blocked off fully for you. You don't need all of what is charted there. The basis of this design is two symmetrical rows mirroring each other in the middle and on the sides its the same just offset for the wide part of the design. That being said, your count for this should be 24 or 24+1 (the 1 for a stockinette column before the first repeat.)
In the picture, after row 24 the chart shows starting into another repeat and it doesn't even show a complete repeat. That is why you are coming up with an off count. I hope my explanation made it clearer. If not please ask more questions!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking For Pattern? Ask here! - knit blanket on: June 01, 2013 09:04:01 PM
Does anyone know of a pattern similar to the knitted blanket shown on the cover of "Country Living" magazine, the February 2013 issue?

It is shown draped over a bench in this photo from their website. 

Thank you!


I would have to be able to look closer but it looks like it could easy enough. A garter band and probebly some variation of a waffle style stitch. Was there a picture with a closer view of the blanket?

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Help? Stiffen Stuff on my iron on: March 25, 2011 11:08:56 AM
So I have happily ventured into the world of fabric wall decals and covered tacks in prep for a new set of stuff to come out in my etsy shop.

I love my new project but I made the mistake of ironing a piece of fabric that had already been stiffened. While there isn't a mess the problem I have is that the now the iron doesn't slide over regular things (i.e. shirts - what? who irons clothes anymore?) it grabs as you go. I tried a few different Google searches but all i could find was how to stiffen fabric links.

So my question is has anyone else done this? or do you know how to get it off?
Looking at the bottom of the iron just as it is it doesn't look like there is anything on it, i already tried wiping the iron hot with a wet cloth and that didn't seem to change anything. Help?

I so need to do this, plus I need to add some to the closure of the duvet as my husband keeps ending up inside it as he sleeps.... so frustrating! Huh

that seems really random and quite odd as to how he ends up in it lol but to each there own. mine has button closure along one end and i put that end to the foot of the bed. my main problem is the whole thing sliding off the end of the bed... wake up freezing with just the sheet over me.

lol mine too i told her to lay on it and she buried her face

It's a great project for them to add their own touch to their space especially if they get to choose the print

I don't remember where i had seen it but i had this project in mind for a while and finally got around to making it happen. I actually took pictures for a tutorial when i made it which i will gladly share if there is interest. It's a quick project you can do with your kids (they should be old enough to use scissors) or even for your kids if you prefer, within a half hour.

Here is my baby girl enjoying hers...
