We’re learning all the time.

Our site is so new, that I wonder what everyone is feeling about it.   We want to keep adding new stuff, but not sure if we are on the right track.   So, did you know that you can make comments on each entry-see the ‘comments’ box below the entry.   I would love to hear from some other knitters.   This is the time to really say ‘what you think’.   Ha, not often do you get to say exactly what you have on your mind.

Well, I have lots on my mind—I just finished developing the pattern for the Great Goncho Sweater.

Also, I  re-wrote the Newbury sweater to be easier to follow-need some volunteers to test them out for us.

The next new items for patterns will be a button front vest, some great home decor items, and some men’s stuff.   What else-Oh the wooly jacket is in the works also.

Of course, my yard is also a big project that I’m currently working on.   Digging, hauling rock, seeding, and putting in some 6’x6′ timbers.   But I love to dig in the dirt and plant stuff.   Need some ideas for shady gardens other than Hostas. What would you plant?

  1. The sweater is beautiful!!! I haven’t made anything on my board yet, as the gauge seems a little loose even when I wrap fairly tightly using worsted weight yarn. I’m going to try and take out the spacer and just use washers and see if that will help.

  2. Having lately become a fond fan of fresh, organic vegetables, I’d plant an edible garden!

    It will cost the same as planting flowers, but the wonderful benefit – fresh, organic, delicious herbs, veggies, and perhaps fruits – is IMHO many times more beneficial than any other use for the garden.

    Good luck, and love your website!

  3. Try clematis, epimediums, heucheura, astillbe, oxalis, arum, solomon seal, jack-in-the-pulpit, columbine, bleeding heart…there are so many variations of hosta try this website: plantdelights.com…I volunteer there and they specialize in hostas.

    annuals = impatiens

    Enough?…not sure of my spelling…

  4. Hi!

    I had a sneak preview of a knitting board last year and was really taken with the idea as it looked so easy (or at least a lot easier than knitting – I can crochet!).

    Am really excited about the prospect of being able to make menswear (being a bloke and all that!).

    Haven’t yet got round to buying a board but will definately be interested to see what you come up with in the mens range – it may just be the incentive to dig out the credit card and get knotted – I mean knitting! lol.

    Regards
    John (United Kingdom).
