  • Re: Remembering fondly my childhood, learning to knit, in grandma's knitting garden.

    Hello Canadians! I, too, learned from my Grandmother. I was the oldest of 4 children and my Dad worked away alot so I got to go to Grandma's alot of weekends because my creativeness was a little much for my mother. I thought it was fantastic and amazing to spend so much time with Grandma all to myself. I think I learned to walk, talk, sew and then

    I have always tried to use the yarn that a pattern is designed for to avoid having problems with quantities and dimensions. My tension is good and I find that I always match the guage recommended for the pattern if I use the same products they used originally. This has been a big learning experience for me as the yarn had a 'similar' guage on

    I'm afraid this isn't a very good photo...tried taking it using my cell phone because I stsill haven't found the cord for the camera. It will at least give a little bit of an idea of how it's going using the Patons Shetland Chunky. It will be a very warm wrap because of the weight of the yarn. I have learned that this yarn has twice

    Well, I couldn't resist doing this project. I tried to stick to the old 'finish what you've started' rule but this wrap is like it is dipped in chocolate! I ended up working with Patons Chunky Shetland. The guage was very close to the prescribed yarn in the original project so, because it is not shaped or made to measure, I thought it

    Thanks, Zoe, for the info! I really appreciate it as I am not much of a detail person - too much to do & too little time. Your colour idea sounds very exciting...I can't wait to see what you end up with. I am having somewhat of a colour adventure - I ordered yarn in a lovely dark leafy green but the supplier then told me (after I had paid) that

    I'm soooo excited to see this project as the next KAL. I, too, have wanted to make it since I first saw it. I am almost done my Minimalist Cardigan, just finishing the cap of the sleeves and then will spend a day constructing it. Once that is done, I am free to start the Wrap! Right now I am having alot of fun trying to find the right yarn. Thanks

    Oh, I've run out of steam...the garden has been calling, the quilting project that is supposed to be done in July has been calling...what will I do?! I'm almost finished the body of my MC so hope that getting through the sleeves will be quicker. Smaller, more portable sleeves will be motivational, I hope. The photos of the finishd projects are
