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.
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!
