In the end I want to do some pillow covers with a chart pattern but I think im going to do those out of a tunisten stitch instead with crochet :P

still waiting for my LTK book T_T

I have reserved the book from the library. When I get it, I will start. I think I might just be using stash yarn, whatever I find laying around. I am trying to do a few projects with scraps, so I can use them and I won't get bored. :D

 

I am going to use 4mm needles and all the yarn will be double knit. :knit

Hi Tracy We keep running into each other. lol

I'm using DK weight yarn I have on hand and 4mm needles. Probably scraps of pinks since I have so many.

I've been given that look too. When school goes back I'm going to be doomed working on all these projects and home schooling and keeping house clean.:help

I wonder if I can make all DD subjects work with craft in them. :lol

Hi Athba! I have this book and the yarn for an aghan on my list for this year. I just need to finish up a few more smallish knitting projects. Hopefully, they won't take too long. I'll be looking forward to see which blocks everyone chooses.

The mixed needlework course sounds great! Hardanger is really quiet easy. Just remember to check carefully where to cut before cutting threads.

Oh piccies tomorrow :yay

I post a couple of pictures of some of other crafts later on today if I can.
