    back again too

    :-) Hi all I used to chat on this site regularly and enjoy the conversations on here, tips and such like. I don't know why , but I haven't been on here for a while, So I thought I should introduce myself again. I am an avid knitter, but I also enjoy other crafts such as card making and scrap booking. I also have been learning to spin over the last year or so, however after a fall last year I damaged my hand, so the amount of crafting I do has been scaled down. I live in Burton on Trent, in the midlands. My family; I have 3 sons, in their 20's,have all grown up and have moved out, and I live with my wonderful fella. I love playing my flute, and organise a small flute group looking forward to chatting with you all and taking part in events :-) Janice

    help with grafting a seam

    hi can anyone advise me on how to graft a shoulder seam? the pattern I am just finishing leaves the shoulder stitches on a needle/ stitch holder instead of casting off then the instructions are to graft the shoulder seams together how do I do that? many thanks J

    A Very Quiet Thursday!!

    hello all, it has been a beautiful day here in the Midlands, i have been out in the garden pottering about most of the day. I have done a few rows of knitting this morning, but mostly I wanted to ply the yarn I spun yesterday. I was so proud of the result. its red/pink and blue and even managed to balance it , pleased with my spinning progress, and pleased with the result, you should have seen the mess it was after the dyeing mishap. but I was determined not to waste it. it hasnt quite made 100g, I am not sure what to make with it but I might just fetch it out and hug it every now and again. of to crafty night with my sisters tonight. parchment card making ... a wedding card for my son and fiancée ...(sh!)
