I found a bag of yarn at the thrift store last month and made it a personal challenge to use it all up in one month. I did it!
As soon as my blog gets approved, I'll post pictures of my weekly progress. Well. I'll *try* to post pics. "Barb" and "tech savvy" are three words that never appear in the same sentence...lol.
Now that's what happens when you've been away from us for a while.......lol
You're probably right. :-)
Here are some caps for the kids at the regional cancer treatment centre. It services a large area and the kids are given a new hat at each visit, so the need is ongoing. Girl caps and baby sized things are in abundance while the older boys seem to get forgotten about. Oddly, there are more boys than girls with cancer. To that end, I try to keep my focus on the older boys. But every now and again I like to do a girly item.
Oh they're lovely, Barb. :)) My faves are the pink/grey and orange/black.
Good on you !!!!
Wow! These are awesome, Barb. I love the checkered part.....and I never would have guessed the black wasn't 'part of the plan', if you hadn't said. :))
I tried doing a bit of check on a hat for KAS, once.....wasn't overly successful....lol.
Loving your yarns, Barb.......bless your caring heart. xo
I'm a slow knitter so this lap blanket took me almost two months to make. I used odds and ends from Sharon's (lady mentioned above) supply of donated yarn.
This is the 10 stitch blanket found on Ravelry. I had to hunt up a tutorial on how to do the corners. Once I had that figured out, it was easy to make. I really enjoyed working on this and plan to make another one next year.
Oh my gosh.......this is AMAZING!!!! Soooooo beautiful!!!!!!
I have heard of this before, but haven't tried it.
Thanks for all your kind words, Bev.
I truly couldn't have made this blanket without the tutorial. I believe the one I used is by VeryPink. I also believe one of our KAS members makes these while she's commuting to and from work.
Aha....I think you might mean Juliet Ashwin. I thought the ones Juliet made were log cabin blankets (like squares, only bigger).....hmmmm.....which this one does look very similar to.
