Remembering ~ Jeff, my hero from Kelli

I have good memories of teasing this young man. While traveling to youth group camps. I never knew then what an honor it was~  it's been 10 years. KIA May 30, 2005. I got to call this hero a friend.

Needles vs Knees - posted by Kelli

Really enjoy Mothers Day, while my husband drove I knitted away the time to our destination.  We shuffled slowly through Pike Place Market. Seeing bunches of flowers being carried away to appreciated moms. Exhausted after shopping we found our way back to our truck.  As I climbed in I saw the damage, stitches loose!  and the broken interchangeable!  Who? Why? How? I still have the ride home I could be knitting!  
My husband had some how crushed my needle with his knee.  He was over apologetic!  He felt awful. As if I'd have to take the whole sweater out and start over.  I tried to assure him it was an easy fix, once home. Made me think, how much fear have I embedded  in him?
 What a sweet guy to be so concerned.  
On the trip home I had time to look around and take advantage of a little nap.

Can you test knit?  Do you want to?  Do you knit well under a deadline?  Do you want to?  I've been busy for the last few months wanting to!
Emails having been going back and forth from Washington to Michigan and Wisconsin... the wonderful yarn company Plucky from Michigan, connects with the wonderful designer Amy Miller in Wisconsin.  They both connect with the fabulous, yours truly ~ me! (if you were wondering)
to see if I'd like to test knit.  Yarns are overnight-ed , and patterns emailed!  Can I get gauge?  Will the unread or knitted pattern work? With no picture to gaze at, I'm ON!  I do have fun test knitting, wouldn't want to all the time, but working with the un-knitted and knitting samples of patterns already out, adds to my knitting interests!

Maidolls ~ a post by Kelli



Sweet dolls created from Melodie Stacey.  Way over in the
United Kingdom!  They fly first class to meet me!
They brighten my day and keep my secret prayers!

With knitted bodies and clothing and topped with
vintage buttons and roving styled hair!!!

Check more dolls and creations on Etsy, "Maidolls".

I've knitted two of them their own shawls, (for testing how the yarn knits up)

I've been collecting for a few years.  Such fun.

Maybe you remember Melissa has some too ~

FLOOD'S FLOCK 2015 KAL - by guest blogger Andrea

Hi Flockers
     I have posted about my finished "Ludlow" over on Ravelry.  I lovingly refer to it as "FLUDLOW".  I do love this project and the yarn was a dream to work with.  It really gives the wrap a rustic and authentic look.  I'm so pleased with it.  It was so cozy when the weather was cold.  Until then it makes a lovely table runner.
                                                     

     My pictures are a little bit weird but I chose them because the stitch definition shows up so well with the sun/shade.  It is such a gorgeous pattern.
     I'm queueing up "Girasole" for my next project.  I loved seeing the others and have some Plucky yarn set aside for it.  I'll share it when it's finished.
