I have just finished a sweater for my elderly dog and am now going to start a cardigan for my grand-daughter's birthday. After that I am going to knit a dress for myself.
Hey Guys I am from UK and have come across this wonderful site. Am I correct in thinking that I will have to convert all the patterns into UK stitches? Thanks :)
Yes, all of the patterns on this site are from the U.S. So you'll you need to convert them.
Hi! I am currently knitting my second project of a potato chip scarf for my best friend for Christmas. I recently inherited all of my grandmother's knitting supplies when she passed on and it has quickly become my favorite thing to do. I would love to be able to knit a doggie for my grandson for Christmas!
Christmas Day is celebrated as a great celebration and holidays in the country in the world, many of whose populations are mostly non Christians.
I would just love to win the booklet of doggie patterns. My elderly mother recently had to give up her Scottie dog in order to move in with family as she is no longer able to care for herself or her dog. I would love to knit her "her" Scottie. Thank you for the opportunity. susan
I love to make homemade gifts to put with store bought gifts for the holidays.
