Hello Everyone. I haven't been posting for awhile as I have been dealing with all that precedes hip replacement surgery. I have been in pain for a couple years and this year it just got to be too much, so Nov. 9 I go in for a right-hip replacement. I am not looking forward to the rehab, but I am looking forward to no more hip/leg pain. I will be in rehab for two weeks, so at least I'll have people cooking and cleaning for me. I'm sure physical and occupational therapy will suck, but I'm sure I'll pull through it.
Hi guys! I have now been a member just one year. My but a lot has happened over the past year. I've learned so much and have met so many nice people on this site. I want to thank all of you who have shared your suggestions with me and who just put your samples out there for us to see, both in-progress and finished projects. They are truly inspirational.
I am planning on making a baby blanket for a friend of mine. I have found some patterns, everything from a washcloth-type pattern to some so complicated that I can't begin to understand them. I am looking for something that would be considered middle of the road, probably a pattern without a lot of lacy holes in it. Baby fingers and lace aren't a good match.
My wife found this article about knitwear for the home and thought you all would enjoy it.
I also found the artist Bauke Knottnerus who is referenced at the end of the article. Fun art out of knitting.
I found some beautiful superwash wool to play with.
In honor of all the guys who are knitting feverishly in the mountains of Colorado, I have made it to a new goal. I was knitting and thinking of all of you.
Hello everyone. Another hot, humid day here in the Chicago area. It's 92F (33C) and very humid, a perfect time to think of knitting something warm and cozy for winter!
