Did someone mention... by spampot[_2_]
....Addi needles for lace? I thought I saw a mention of it but can't find it (that may of course be due to the migraine drugs). I ask because I think I mentioned trying to make a scarf with some beautiful two-ply cashmere laceweight that is slack-twisted enough that no matter what needles I...

Moth help! by Mary Fisher
Today I took out a shawl which a daughter knitted for me some years ago from her own spun Hebridean black wool from the two Heb ewe lambs I gave her. She'd chosen the stitch 'candlelight' because I made beeswax candles. It had huge holes in it and it's unsalvageable. Does anyone know of any...

The one book you would have in your knitting bag? by Padishar Creel

I don't have an outdoor thermometer, but yesterday was SO hot and humid I actually went into the pool THREE times. The first time was about 5 pm, then while preparing supper (just a LOT of cut vegetables and dip... it was far too hot to think about cooking) and while I was eating I found myself...

Wooly by Katherine
Continuing with dog news, I wanted to share our latest about Wooly. As some of you know, when I came home in February, we found out that Wooly was developing cataracts. Well, when I went back after Easter, we discovered that she had diabetes. It must have been developing for some time, as she is...

Totally, perhaps annoyingly, OT! question for Brits by spampot[_2_]
So, Mary F & I finally stopped gabbing about Yorkshire, and lo & behold I have another question that I figure the variety of folks here might be able to shed some light on. First of all, if you haven't heard of the Monty Pythons referring to little old ladies as "pepperpots," you can stop...

Home again. by Olwyn Mary
Turns out I have severe bronchitis, not just a cold. However, as the hospital is so crowded, and I have had all the ultrasounds, x-rays, round the clock breathing treatments etc., plus my new nebulizer arrived today, plus I have a retired husband to help out, the doctor released me with a handful...

Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Katherine
Well, I broke down and ordered this pattern. I figured, with all the free ones available, I wouldn't have to pay for one. However, after I saw a couple of versions of this one, I had to have it. I have a gift certificate for my favourite yarn store, and I will be using that to buy the wool for it....
