A Little Holiday Madness

December 19

If you haven’t seen me around much, it’s because I didn’t think the holidays were busy enough on their own. Noooo, I had to add the next level of the TKGA Hand Knitting Program into the mix. Actually, I’m blaming it all on Cindy, my extraordinary knit-buddy. She started Level 2 first. She showed me the swatches she’d been working on, and then she made the most beautiful vest for the program’s project, and well…I just had to get started myself.

Cindy loves to seam. I think she loves to seam almost more than she loves to knit. (Is she the only one out there to make such an outlandish claim?) Much of Level 2 is about seaming, which is my absolute worst thing. Until now. I’ve finally completed about half the swatches required for Level 2, and I’m beginning to think my seams won’t be so bad in the future. Level 2 is tough, but I love to learn new skills.

I completed Level 1 of the Program back in 2008, along with my friend Adrienne.  The program is a wonderful challenge!

I wish all my lovely readers joyful holidays and happy knitting!

    Way to go! I’m a little over halfway done with Level 1 and have set it aside. I really need to pick it up when all the Christmas busyness is over. I love that you have added some grey to the swatches. I’m not so great at seaming either so I will look forward to learning more. I bet you are an expert now!

    How exciting that you’re so far along on Level 1! I’m blushing at the “expert” part, since I’m not at all! Given enough time and patience, I can seam a 4″ swatch. We’ll see how it goes when it comes to a real garment!
    I love the learning part of the Program too!

    hello,

    I was wondering if you can quide me to get a free pattern of the white pot holder that is on top of the pile. My mother used to knit this pattern for sweaters when she was alive. I wasn’t into knitting then but now i started to knit and I need that pattern. I want to knit the same patterns in her memory. can you please send me the pattern or quide me where to get it form. Thanks in advance for helping me out with this.

    Merry Christmas!

    The stitch pattern is called “Little Arrowhead” in the Harmony Guides Lace book by Erika Knight. You can find a free version on the fantastic site Knitting Fool, here: http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/stCatalog2.guest.cfm?StitchID=790&name=Little%20Arrowhead%20Lace&numofst=6&stplus=1&rows=4&rplus=0
    Another cool source I found even shows a video of how to make the pattern. http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-knit-the-little-arrowhead-lace-stitch/

    I enjoyed swatching the pattern, and I imagine it was lovely in the sweaters your mother made. Happy knitting!
