"Thanks Jeanne I will certainly try to knit an instant hat. How many stitches would you suggest I use for the base of the rectangle. Maybe 3 x the size of a square which in my case would be 105. I do not think you have a big empty melon for a…"
Hi I have just received your request for friendship, lovely to hear from you. Aagh I am sorry to hear about your Cav, ours is called Jess and she is two . She rules the house, will never leave my husbands side . They are inseparable and are both having a snooze on the sofa as we speak. We have concerns about her showing signs of syringeomella, we love her so much. The vet has told us to wait a while so we are just hoping for the best. Oh well time to set the needles to work! x
God blessed me with an eye for colour and knitting helps me to use it. Thank you for you lovely compliment. Surfing the internet looking st other people's knitting has helped me tremendously. Keep stitching. mili
Hi Jean, just to see how you are doing? We have a windy day here again in Croatia, but at least we got some rain. My February tally is 19 squares, so I'm just about one a day. It is helping me to use up my SCRAP yarn, let alone my stash.
Hi Jean, we are also near neighbours as I live on Portland. I have only been knitting swuares for a couple of weeks but am already addicted!! I have now started to experiment with different patterns which encourages me to finish ff a square quicker as I can't wait to start a different one! I have also knitted 4 hats and aim to have a go at a pullover soon. Happy knitting..
Hi Jean. Yes you are right. Newcastle is only 8 miles away from South Shields. Vancouver is a beautiful place, never get tired of seeing the mountains all around, especially now when they are snow capped. You def should try to make Vancouver a place to visit on your next trip. the only thing I miss about the UK is my family and friends, but my daughter and son-in-law are in the process of trying to move over here. Not that it is an easy process!!!! But I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Welcome Jean. Great to have you with us. I am certainly not put off because you live so far away. I am in Vancouver but am originally from South Shields. Been over here 12 yrs but still visit as often as I can.
Hello Jean I live in Crete and have only been a member since November.
I could knit but now have learnt to crochet and love making squares for those lovely children. I hope you will enjoy knitting and you will certainly get all the good advise and help you need here they are a really friendly lot.
