Sorry I haven’t posted pictures yet. I am taking pictures this week.
In the meantime, earlier this year, my exhusbands’ mother has a friend who was a neighbor to a woman who knitted and crocheted that died. Her husband asked her if she knew anyone who does the same and would want the yarn. She in turn told my exmother-in-law who in turn called me. I said yes. Since I was teaching her great grands to sew, knit and crochet. There was a ton of yarn, Red Heart, Caron and baby yarns. Lots of it.
Well, I have now started afghans for the girls. One 9 and one 15. I am knitting in order to practice, because as it always is with me, I hunger to do something and right now its knitting. I watch “Knitty Gritty” on DIY and have been given knitting supplies over the last two years. I’ve also bought some supplies and books.
So, I am doing it in panels of Red Heart Super Saver. One skein per panel is the game plan now. The first panel is all a plain stockinet stitch and the second panel I’ve just started is a k10 p10 for seven rows than p10 k10 all over 50 stitches per panel. This is a pattern I found in an old knitting dictionary I was given. I want to do a panel in cables. But I thought I’d start fast and start the more detailed ones for last. I can knit and purl back and forth fast, but throw in a stitch pattern and I slow up. Maybe before my thirst is quenched, I will try something hard. Those are the best stitch patterns, but I have the attention span of a gnat! So we will see. ((giggle)
I will take some jacket pictures tonight.
