How about something crochet too, for any one who wants to learn or progress. The board crocheters could keep us ( Embarassed ) right.

Ok, this is just a tentative list at the moment - I will refine it depending on suggestions.

  • Lace
  • Cables
  • Socks
  • Crochet
  • Double knitting
  • Toys
  • Hats and gloves
  • Colour work


Please keep the suggestions coming.

That sounds like a great list so far.

Kids love wacky, off beat hats. The stranger the better. The kid who refuses to wear a hat will pop on a comical or wierd hat quicker then you can say, "It's cold out!"

wolfram, I have yet to succed at socks, that might be something I could give another go. I would like tot ry my hand at a lace too tho. It's a good thing there are 12 months, Laughing . We have pleanty of time to get this all in.

I was going to suggest one of those lovely circle sweaters that I was drooling over at the NY sheep n Wool Fest.


We'd have to find a few patterns to use, I'm sure some would like sleeves, possibly lace trim n other optional differences.

Also we might want to put the woolies in the warmer months and the smaller, lighter objects for the warmer months. (This could be a problem for the down under knitters . . . sorry)

Beabea, that one's wonderful, and it's not knit in the round, it's done back n forth. I love the drape of it too. I think I just found my pattern Very Happy Thanks much Beabea.

ETA, looking at that pattern I can not find where they say how many skeins you need for the jacket. Am I missing it? I am trying to figure out the cost. Or do you go by the grams of yarn, If I am figuring it right, you'd need about US$75.- worth of yarn. I wonder if one could substitute another, less costly yarn . . . pehaps another silk alpaca blend to keep that lovely drape. Has anyone any ideas?

I like the back but I think the front, with all the frills may make me look a larger lass than I am. Sad

True, it would add to a full bust (to say nothing of other full body parts Rolling Eyes ) That pattern may be one for the tall thin knitter. We need to find a pattern that slims ya down or at least does not plump us up.

MMmm, I hate it when they only sell the pattern with a kit. I mean, it's not like we are short in the yarn dept. . . .

She says it's 'all rectangles', can anyone figure it out by looking at the picts? The back view is at the bottom of the page.

OH my, look at the video. It looks like a very long rectangle with one side brought back and stitched to it's center allowing openings for sleeves. I have to attempt to drape this wtih a sheet n some pins, I may be able to mock up a pattern for this.

If you scroll almost to the bottom of the page, you can buy just the pattern download for $7.00.
