Ally, send me the photo on Pinterest and I'll see if it's familiar to any of the sites I visit for patterns.

Charlotte hope you post the photo of the finished sweater. I saw something on Pinterest it was a crochet wrap I would like to have a go at but no pattern, wondering if I could figure out by just looking at picture.Hmmm!! lOL. Just finishing my third kids sweater & toque set to give to Friendship house in the Christmas parcels. They are chunky so knit up quite quickly.

Ally, funny you should mention it! lol I was just looking at a chunky knit sweater (cardigan style) for "Spring layering" in the Craftsy kits! I finally opted for a sort of smoky teal color (the model showed grey heather, but I'm tired of making everything match my hair! lol). Plus the kit is on sale! The pattern says it's crocheted in one piece and it looks easy enough (I've only been crocheting for about two years), although sometimes it takes me a while to figure out the written patterns! I took a Craftsy class to learn the basics, and another to learn how to read a pattern. I still get a little confused because I DO know how to read a knitting pattern and I sometimes get them mixed up! lol

Char- we'll expect a photo of the finished knit one purl one, now you have all this time on your hands or should I say feet!!LOL. Simsbury Shrug sounds great would love to see when finished. I have my eye on a crochet wrap I would like to try for next fall.

LOL! Cute, BJ! You just keep up with the knit one, purl one and soon your have a long skinny cuff for something! :D Surgery went well, cast on my foot is annoying and occasionally causes me fleeting moments of claustrophobia on that foot! Into day 4 of keeping it elevated and off of it for the last time. DH bought me a knee scooter to get around (that thing is fun! lol), a wedge to keep my foot propped up, a shower bag to pull over it (still have no idea how I'm going to get into the shower/tub on one foot!), a basket for the front of the scooter, and he built me a ramp to get up and down the back deck, AND modified the downstairs "powder room" to accommodate me, a cast, and crutches. If I was the suspicious sort I'd think he was doing all this not only to make me more self reliant, but so he wouldn't have to help me at all! lol (This is the guy, who, if I asked for a quick hand with something, would spend 5 minutes making suggestions of all the ways I could just do it myself! ;D)

I DID start knitting something called a Simsbury Shrug (free pattern on JoAnn's) and I'm sure that's why the temperature is supposed to get up tp 80 today! Son Pete got me a book for my birthday on knitting scarves, mittens, & socks that look like animals (the flamingo is wonderful! lol) and another book on knitting amazing animals that are a bit more involved than the crocheted variety. I'll hardly be bored at all for the next 5 or 6 weeks...... Actually, I left a bag at the top of the stairs in my sewing room with one of the plastic drawers of my sewing scraps, my revolving cutting mat, and a wheel cutter for when I'm able to stand longer on one foot. I figure if I can't sew, I can at least try to get SOMEthing organized in my sewing room! I have a book on how and what sizes to cut scraps for future scrappy blocks. I figure when I get one color done up into blocks I can just put them back into the drawer and have one of my minions bring the next drawer. We'll see how THAT goes..... LOL

Hi Charlotte - and here we just thought you were snubbing us. After all you aren't doing anything... just recovering from surgery. ;)  Hope you are doing well. How's the knit one, purl two coming along (that's the extent of my knowledge of knitting)?

I haven't been on here in such a long time. I haven't been getting any notifications of posts to any of my groups, but at least I was only 3 pages behind in this one!

Ally, you thread painted picture is gorgeous. Makes me want to go there, which is what I always thought scenic pictures should do! :)

Sandy, I can't even imagine dealing with such heartbreaking news, or what to say other than we'll all have you and your family in our prayers and thoughts. You have family here, even though some of us you'll never meet, and we all care about each other.

Sandy, Linda H has gone through what you are going through so I am sure knows exactly how you feel, we all know how we would feel if it was our grandchild, so if you need to unload please do, as my Mum used to say a burden shared is a burden halved. It helps to release those bottled up tensions. And BJ is right we are here for you.
Comment by B J Elder/WA on April 10, 2017 at 9:01pm

We're here for you Sandy. This is such a great "family" - we've been through a lot together and we're here for you.

Comment by Sandy B /AUS on April 10, 2017 at 8:10pm

Thank you everyone. I have at least told my mother now and cried on the phone as most children do when speaking to their parents about tough things.
